Adventurous guitarists started hot-rodding their Telecasters in the late ’60s and early ’70s with big-sounding humbucking neck pickups that lent new style and swagger to rock music. The Classic Series ’72 Telecaster Custom brings it all back as an authentic evocation of its early-’70s ancestor, including the distinctive Fender Wide Range humbucking neck pickup, a large pickguard, cool skirted amp control knobs and more. A favorite of players from ’70s rock to modern U.K. alt-rock and much more.

The Modern Wide Range humbucking pickups on this guitar expertly evoke the look of the famous Fender pickup design of the early 1970s, as used on original-era Telecaster Thinline, Telecaster Custom and Telecaster Deluxe models. With authentic design and performance that evokes the Telecasters of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, this model features an American Vintage telecaster bridge with three saddles. This specialized ’72 Telecaster model features the nicely authentic touch of sealed tuners stamped with the stylized capital “F” from the classic Fender script logo. Deluxe gig bag included.

  • Maple neck with “C” profile, “bullet” truss rod, three-bolt neck plate and Micro-Tilt
  • 7.25”-radius maple or rosewood fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets
  • Fender Wide Range humbucking neck pickup
  • Single-coil Telecaster bridge pickup
  • Three-way toggle pickup switch on upper shoulder
  • Four skirted amp control knobs (volume and tone for each pickup)
  • Vintage-style string-through-body Telecaster bridge with three chrome “barrel” saddles
  • Deluxe gig bag included

The tele setup I've been looking for


I've been wanting a tele with the les-paul style arrangement of pup selector on upper bout, and separate tone and volume controls for each pup. Plus, humbucker and single coil! The guitar came ready to play out of the box; I'll have it set up eventually to try to get a bit lower action but really it's quite good just as it is. This is really a good guitar for the money, no regrets at all here!

Amazing Guitar


Great versitile guitar. I have a les paul, strats, and a classic tele and I can honestly say since i've had this i dont play any thing else (apart from a telecaster i have set up for slide) great for recording or live work






[..] 72 and 73 r 2 different years. im a proffesional and i use this guitar a lot. its a great guitar but take it from the guy who ACTUALLY TALKIN ABOUT THE 72. bottom line its really good




mine is a '73


Unreal. Pure genius. Mine is a '73 maple neck. Action is superb. Killer tone. High end peeks with the mixing of the two pickups. A growl that nobody expects from a tele. Kinda brings a tear to your eye. Kind plays itself. Don't have to fight with it.

A good guitar for the money!


"I have a black one with the rosewood fretboard, and I really like. My only gripe is it sounds a little bassy. I like a lot of treble though. I play a lot of different stuff, ranging from the Beatles, to The Get Up Kids. It suits all my styles of playing. I mostly got one of these because of Keith Richards, and I was extremely well pleased with what I got for the money. I'm only giving it four stars though, because of the treble thing, and the fact that it didn't come with one of those cool little ashtray bridge covers. "
