Featuring excellent versatility in tone, the 72 Custom Tele still has that twang plus a nice warm tone produced by the neck-position humbucker. A favorite of players from '70s rock to modern U.K. alt-rock and much more.
Like its ancestor, the Classic Series ‘72 Telecaster Custom guitar combines the tradition of a single-coil bridge pickup with the supercharged sound of a humbucking neck pickup. This limited-edition version features an ash body, maple neck with three-bolt plate and Micro-Tilt adjustment, maple fingerboard, single-coil Telecaster bridge pickup, Fender Wide Range humbucking neck pickup, Bigsby vibrato tailpiece and a 6-saddle bridge.
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.
