During the 1970s the classic Fender Telecaster saw a number of short-lived custom upgrades, which remained popular long-after their initial production run ended. What we have here is a stunning Limited Edition reissue of a 1972 Telecaster Custom model, and it's a real beauty!
An Early 70s Telecaster Custom Reissue
With this Fender Special Run '72 Telecaster Custom you get a guitar with a stripped back Alder body, with a natural gloss polyester finish, a Maple Neck and fingerboard, "Wide Range" humbucker neck pickup, plack pickguard, and even a Bigsby Tremolo for that classic 70's finishing touch.
Adding the "Wide Range" humbucker in place of a traditional Tele neck pickup really adds an extra-fat sound not normally found in the Telecaster market, which is perfectly complimented by the body's natural resonance. This is complimented by a Vintage-Style Telecaster Bridge single coil pickup that's full of the classic Tele Twang that we all know and love.
Adding a touch of vintage class to this instrument is a whole host of premium-grade, vintage-style hardware. From the "Skirted Amp" style control knobs and vintage F-Stamped tuners, down to the Bigsby Tremolo and Bridge, every detail on this guitar helps it to feel and look every bit the vintage instrument that it is an homage to.
