Bringing together features like an immensely playable C-shape maple neck, 21 medium jumbo maple frets, and a pair of alnico-powered humbuckers, the Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe is a faithful rendition of an iconic instrument. Faithful in reproduction down to the 6-saddle string-thru bridge and skirted control knobs, this iteration of the Telecaster brings fat, gritty tone with a signature Fender edge. Lighter in weight thanks to the alder body, this model is the gateway to vintage tone and feel without the vintage price tag.

  • One of the best guitars Fender has to offer

    I absolutely love this guitar. I own many American Fender, Japanese Fenders, and Mexican Fenders, and this rivals all the Americans.
