About This Listing

An incredibly unique Thinline Tele built by the late, great John English. The body is made entirely from Pine, and the pickguard is crafted from plastic covered in hand tooled leather. The three piece body is absolutely breathtaking, sporting stunning striation on the front/sides and gnarly knots on the back. 

 This guitar is new old stock and has never been sold. Apart from some very light signs of handling on the back, there are no signs of wear, and all electronics function perfectly. 

This Telecaster is a dream come true for any fan of John English or just any general collector of uniquely awesome instruments!
