Classic Tele® Deluxe Style

Adventurous guitarists started hot-rodding their Telecasters in the late '60s and early '70s with big-sounding humbucking pickups that lent new style and swagger to rock music. The Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe brings it all back as an authentic evocation of its early-'70s ancestor, including dual Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups, a large pickguard, Stratocaster® headstock and bridge, cool skirted amp control knobs and more. A favorite of players from '70s rock to modern U.K. alt-rock and much more.

Wide Range Humbucking Pickups
Wide Range Humbucking Pickups

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.

For 1970s-era authenticity, this guitar features the "large" Stratocaster headstock adopted in 1965 and the "bullet" truss rod system introduced in 1971, when the body-end truss rod adjustment mechanism was changed to a bullet-shaped nut at the base of the headstock.
