A unique time for guitar took place in the 1970s, when the sound of the instrument was turning towards sounding louder and bigger. The change in sound was due in part to the introduction of humbucking pickups in place of single-coils, and Fender was ahead of the curve with implementing this into their instruments, like the Telecaster Custom. With the help of designer Seth Lover, the Wide Range Humbucking pickup was created and left its mark on the sound of the early 70s. Although the Telecaster Custom was eventually discontinued in 1979, the demand for classic guitars of the past is very much alive now. Fender brings back this vintage instrument with a great complimenting Tim Shaw designed single-coil in the bridge and vintage features to keep as true to the '70s Telecaster as possible.

Wide Range Humbucking Pickup
Designed by Seth Lover for a higher output dual pickup using large bobbins and threaded CuNiFe rod magnets, the Wide Range Humbucking neck pickup is the first authentic CuNiFE magnet powered pickup in over 40 years.

Tim Shaw Designed Single-Coil
From the acclaimed pickup designer Tim Shaw, the vintage-style '70s single-coil Tele bridge pickup is calibrated and pairs perfectly alongside the Wide Range Humbucking pickup to give you era-accurate tones with high quality components.

Vintage Features
From the 3-saddle vintage-style Tele bridge with slotted steel saddles, all the way up to the vintage tinted neck with vintage tall fret size, the American Original Telecaster Custom is truly a culmination of what made '70s guitars what they were.
