The Fender Telecaster's single-coil chime has resonated throughout musical history. Today, an American Original series model introduces an alternate avenue that was taken in the early 1970s that deviated from the normal Telecaster tone. The American Original '70s Telecaster Custom brings several unique specifications from decades passed to life sure to catch the attention of Fender fans and Telecaster aficionados.
Featuring the first CuNiFe-magnet powered Wide Range neck pickup in over forty years, the American Original 70s Telecaster Custom introduces distinct humbucking tones to the Telecaster formula. The full and resonant tones of the reintroduced humbucker stand out among other Telecasters for a playing experience that is unique, though remains distinctly Fender. Dynamic humbucking tones are complemented by a Tim Shaw-designed single coil pickup in the bridge position for a fully immersive and powerful Telecaster experience. A vintage-accurate body shape and neck profile makes the Telecaster solid in hand while vintage-correct hardware retains the same specifications of the original model from the 1970s.
The full experience of the American Original 70s Telecaster Custom recaptures a distinct point in Fender history where designs took branching paths to create the next Fender classic. With a bold combination of unconventional hardware and electronics, the tones of 1970s humbuckers live on.
