An Affordable Classic: Fender's '72 Tele Custom!

With the Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Custom in your hands, you can do anything. Anything guitar related, that is. The Tele took a huge leap forward in 1972 with the addition of a hot humbucking pickup in the neck position - quite possibly inspired by mods performed by guitarists like Mike Bloomfield on their beloved Teles. The Classic Series '72 Telecaster Custom delivers the Tele twang with the added punch of a neck-position Fender "Wide-Range" humbucker. You also get Fender's cool '70s Micro-Tilt neck adjustment, bullet truss rod, and skirted, silver-tipped amp knobs. If you're a Tele fan who's after affordable vintage vibe, you can't do better than the Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Custom.

You'll feel like you're playing a 1970's masterpiece

Every part of the Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Custom was built to give you the experience of playing a hot-rodded original '72 Tele. Players and collectors alike will appreciate details like the three-bolt neck plate (with Micro-Tilt adjustment), a Bullet-style truss rod nut, and vintage-style "F" tuners.

Wide Range pickups for versatile tone

A Fender Wide Range humbucker gives the Classic Series '72 Telecaster Custom a perfect blend of big, rich tone, output, and detail. You'll love the range of classic tones you can coax from this guitar!
