FENDER AMERICAN VINTAGE ’72 TELECASTER CUSTOM

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]

Fender’s American Vintage ’72 Telecaster Custom guitar authentically evokes a historic member of the Telecaster family. Period-correct early-’70s details include a three-bolt neck plate with Micro-Tilt™ adjustment, bullet truss rod nut and vintage-style “F” tuners; with touches including a Fender Wide Range humbucking neck pickup redesigned and re-voiced to sound even more like a 1970s pickup.

Features include a solid ash body with gloss lacquer finish, C-shaped maple neck with gloss lacquer finish, maple fingerboard with 7.25” radius and 21 vintage-style frets, American Vintage single-coil Telecaster bridge pickup, three-position switch with aged white tip; three-ply black-white-black pickguard; vintage-style three-saddle strings-through-body Telecaster bridge; skirted amp control knobs and chrome hardware. Accessories include black Tolex case, polish cloth, 8’ cable, strap, bridge cover and six-saddle replacement bridge.
