Fender Telecaster American Vintage 72 Custom

Glenwood Springs, CO
United States


Fender American Vintage '72 Telecaster Custom:

2012 model, Fender doesn't make these any more. Made in the USA.

Lightly used, comes from a smoke free home and never gigged. It doesn't get played much anymore, so it needs a good home. Has a few tiny nicks here and there in the finish. Typical scratches on the pickguard. Comes with hardshell case that is not original, but is in decent shape.

Information from Fender:

Fender's American Vintage '72 Telecaster Custom guitar authentically evokes a historic member of the Telecaster family. Period-correct early-'70s details include a three-bolt neck plate with Micro-Tilt™ adjustment, bullet truss rod nut and vintage-style "F" tuners; with touches including a Fender Wide Range humbucking neck pickup redesigned and re-voiced to sound even more like a 1970s pickup.

Features include a solid ash body with gloss lacquer finish, C-shaped maple neck with gloss lacquer finish, maple fingerboard with 7.25" radius and 21 vintage-style frets, American Vintage single-coil Telecaster bridge pickup, three-position switch with aged white tip; three-ply black-white-black pickguard; vintage-style three-saddle strings-through-body Telecaster bridge; skirted amp control knobs, and chrome hardware.
