Fender FSR American Vintage '72 Telecaster Custom, Sonic Black Finish

Throughout the mid-to-late 1960s it had become clear that more and more guitarists were steering towards the thicker sound of humbucker-equipped guitars, and so Fender set to developing an instrument for the (then) modern market, alongside renowned pickup innovator Seth Lover. Years later, the new pickup had been perfected, and the Telecaster Custom was born!

Vintage-Stylings, Vintage Sound, Modern Playability

Based on those original, supremely popular instruments, this Fender Special Run (FSR) American Vintage '72 Telecaster helps to recreate those powerful rock and roll tones as favoured over the decades by the likes of Keith Richards and The Edge (amongst others).

Featuring a solid Ash body, a Fender Wide-Ranging Humbucker in the neck position, American Vintage Single-Coil bridge pickup, faux tortoiseshell pickguard, vintage-style three-saddle thru-body Tele bridge, chrome hardware, and a Sonic Black finish, this guitar would make a prized addition to any guitar enthusiasts collection.

Excellent Pickups

Despite being in production for almost as long as a traditional Telecaster, the Telecaster Custom - with it's Neck Humbucker and Bridge Single Coil - is still considered to be unusual for some, but it comes together perfectly on this guitar.

With the Modern Wide Range humbucker, you get a pickup that not only looks the part, but helps to accurately recreate those dreamy early-70's neck humbucker tones. Combined with the vintage style Tele bridge pickup, the array of tones this guitar can produce are as versatile as you could wish for.
