    I've been looking at Fender Telecasters and I came across a 2013 Fender American Select Thinline Telecaster in Violin Burst. This is a beautiful looking guitar and it has most everything I am looking for...contoured maple neck/fret board, compound Radius, 22 frets, beautiful maple cap, chambered body, nitro lacquer finish.

    Has Fender discontinued this model? I checked a couple of online stores and they say they are no longer available. Saw a couple on e-bay but that about it.

    I have severe gas! Dang!

    They are mostly found on Ebay. Very nice guitars, the entire Select line.

    Fender Selects were always kind of a limited run thing. I don't believe they set a number limit, but they did limit the window where they could be ordered to roughly one year for each version, although I think some of the 2012s were offered for most of 2013 as well (like the original chambered Tele and the original HSS Strat).

    I have one that I got in 2013, and love it. It sounds Tele all the way and plays great. The chambered body give a little more air to the tone.
