The Squier Paranormal Cabronita Thinline Telecaster breaks from the traditional Cabronita recipe by subbing 'Tron pickups for a set of Fender-designed alnico Jazzmaster single-coils. The result is a decidedly thicker, glassier response and a tone that's more associated with overblown alt-rock and sultry surf melodies than sock hop and dance hall stylings. The semi-hollow design gives the Paranormal Cabronita Thinline Tele a pleasingly light stage weight and a propensity for sweet, soulful feedback when you crank up to 11. Plus, the string-through-body design enhances sustain to create lingering leads and chords. If you've been searching for an undeniably unique Tele, you've found it with the Squier Paranormal Cabronita Thinline Telecaster.
This F-holed Cabronita Tele features a Thinline semi-hollow poplar body that is light in the hand and full of great tone â€” even unplugged. Together with its Jazzmaster single-coils, it's a recipe for a good time in virtually any practice or performance setting.
To create the Paranormal series, the mad scientists at Squier broke down a selection of Fenderâ€™s most popular designs to the atomic level and smashed them together, bringing to life some of the coolest aberrant axes weâ€™ve ever seen. Flipped headstocks, Frankenstein electronics, necks on bodies to which they donâ€™t belong â€” these guitars and basses break all the rules! So, if youâ€™ve ever desired to chuck a set of P-90s into a Cabronita, play a Mustang with the voice of a Strat, or own a J-Bass dressed up as a P-Bass, youâ€™ll love the Squier Paranormal series.
