Adventurous guitarists started hot-rodding their Telecasters in the late '60s and early '70s with big-sounding humbucking neck pickups that lent new style and swagger to rock music. The Classic Series '72 Telecaster Custom brings it all back as an authentic evocation of its early-'70s ancestor, including the distinctive Fender Wide Range humbucking neck pickup, a large pickguard, cool skirted amp control knobs and more. A favorite of players from '70s rock to modern U.K. alt-rock and much more.
The Modern Wide Range humbucking pickups on this guitar expertly evoke the look of the famous Fender pickup design of the early 1970s, as used on original-era Telecaster Thinline, Telecaster Custom and Telecaster Deluxe models.
With authentic design and performance that evokes the Telecasters of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, this model features an American Vintage telecaster bridge with three saddles.
This specialized ’72 Telecaster model features the nicely authentic touch of sealed tuners stamped with the stylized capital "F" from the classic Fender script logo.
