American Vintage '72 Telecaster

The Tele took a quantum leap in 1972 with the addition of a single supercharged humbucker in the neck position. This axe delivers the Tele twang with the added punch of a neck-position Fender "Wide-Range" humbucker. This Tele also debuted Fender's proprietary Micro-Tilt neck adjustment feature, plus a bullet truss rod and silver-tipped, skirted amp knobs. Built to vintage specs and with a sound all its own, you'll love the Fender American Vintage '72 Telecaster Custom.
