Tele Customs are always a good choice for players who love the feel of a Tele, but need a bit more of a rounded tone out of their axe. As part of their Vintera series, Fender has faithfully recreated these innovative instruments from the years of their original inception - and they hit the nail on the head. The vintage-style single-coil bridge pickup pairs wonderfully with the Wide Range humbucker; the "Thin C"-shaped neck plays quick and compliments the vintage-style frets; and of course, all of the vintage-styled hardware and aesthetics complete the look.
For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era, we created the Vintera® ‘70s Telecaster® Custom. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade—including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with re-voiced pickups—this guitar has all of the articulation and punch that made the Telecaster a legend.
We recreated the pickups to sound more like the ‘70s originals. By combining the vintage-style single-coil bridge pickup with a fat-sounding Wide Range humbucking neck pickup we added some beef to the traditional Tele® bite. The “Thin C”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets for classic feel. A vintage-style Tele® bridge with three steel barrel saddles gives this Telecaster its characteristic twang, while “F”-stamped tuning machines offer period-correct aesthetics, classic feel and rock-solid tuning stability. Other features include three-bolt neck plate, chrome hardware and vintage-style strap buttons. Includes deluxe gig bag.
