Meticulous vintage accuracy graces this guitar

For the American Vintage '72 Telecaster Custom, Fender tracked down several of the original '72s and exhaustively analyzed them to ensure a painstaking level of vintage accuracy. Every facet of the original instruments — including minute details such as curves, perimeters, radii, and more — was examined, measured, evaluated, and ultimately incorporated into the American Vintage '52 Tele. What you see in this remarkable guitar is more than the sum of its parts. It's a highly playable, eminently musical-sounding re-creation of an iconic instrument that changed music forever.

Rockin' pickup duo packs plenty of punch

When Fender originally launched the 1972 Telecaster Custom model, they set out to create a rock guitar that would appeal to a new generation of more aggressive guitarists. That's why they outfitted it with a humbucker at the neck and a hotter bridge pickup. To capture that same spirit, Fender Custom Shop equipped the American Vintage '72 Telecaster Custom with a rockin' pickup duo. First, there's the Wide Range humbucker at the neck, for beefy tone with serious impact. To complement that, a Tele single-coil bridge pickup delivers the classic, biting Telecaster lead tone you've heard on countless hits. Top that off with a full set of volume and tone controls for each pickup, and the Fender American Vintage '72 Telecaster Custom makes dialing in the perfect sound a piece of cake.

The magic of Fender's American Vintage series

Since its introduction in the early 1980s, Fender's American Vintage series has been the go-to source for the last word in original-era model year guitars. With today's American Vintage guitars, Fender has gone back to the drawing board with new features, new specs, and the most fanatical level of vintage accuracy yet. They've restored original tooling dies, voiced new pickups, reformulated vintage colors, and more — based on actual vintage guitars. From its flawless vintage looks to its impeccable tone and playing feel, there's pure magic in the Fender American Vintage '72 Telecaster Custom!
