AMERICAN VINTAGE II

The Fender American Vintage II series presents a remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary designs that altered the course of musical history. Built with period-accurate bodies, necks and hardware, premium finishes and meticulously voiced, year-specific pickups, each instrument captures the essence of authentic Fender craftsmanship and tone.

The Telecaster® Custom marked one of Fender’s earliest forays into the use of humbucking pickups. The Tele® Custom featured a comfort-contoured belly cut, 3-way toggle located on the upper bout and dual volume and tone controls mounted to a stylish, elongated pickguard. The American Vintage II 1977 Telecaster Custom reproduces the quintessential tone and feel of the original.

This Tele features a Wide Range humbucking pickup in the neck position and a Pure Vintage '77 single-coil Tele® pickup in the bridge position. To create an authentic Wide-Range humbucking pickup, we resurrected CuNiFe magnets, which had been out of production since 1981, and are an essential element in recreating the sonics of the original. The American Vintage II 1977 Telecaster Custom plays like a dream with a ‘77 “C”-shape hard rock maple neck with a 7.25” radius maple or rosewood fingerboard and vintage tall frets. Other features include a Tele bridge with 6 slotted steel barrel saddles, “F” stamped tuners, a convenient "Bullet" style truss rod nut and a three-bolt neck plate with Micro-Tilt™ mechanism. Available in three finish options: Olympic White, 3-Color Sunburst, and Wine Red over an alder body.

The instruments in the American Vintage II series are direct descendants of the original Fenders: designed for players with a fine appreciation for vintage Fender tone and feel and built with unmatched quality, down to the last screw. These are Fender electrics in their purest form: Fender American Vintage II, the stuff of legends.


ALDER BODY
Alder has a well-balanced tone with beefy mids and a robust low-end.

7.25” RADIUS FINGERBOARD IN ROUND-LAMINATED ROSEWOOD OR MAPLE
The 7.25”-radius fingerboard provides the comfortable playing feel of a vintage instrument, while vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.

1977 “C”-SHAPE NECK
In vintage years, the shape and thickness of Fender guitar necks varied tremendously. The American Vintage II Series offers a variety of authentic neck profiles from Fender’s past.

PURE VINTAGE '77 SINGLE-COIL TELE® AND AUTHENTIC CUNIFE WIDE-RANGE HUMBUCKING PICKUPS
Specially voiced to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years, Pure Vintage pickups are constructed just like pickups from Fender’s golden years. Materials include cloth-covered wire, fiber bobbins and alnico magnets.

VINTAGE-STYLE HARDWARE
From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of American Vintage II hardware is manufactured to look, sound and function just like it did on the originals. Much of the American Vintage II hardware is still manufactured on the original ‘50s and ‘60s era Fender factory machines.
