Fender’s American Vintage II Series is a meticulously designed collection of period-correct electric guitars and basses. Each model is carefully chosen and recreated based on its contribution to the Fender story of that year. All models feature year specific bodies, necks, hardware, finishes, and pickups. American Vintage II is the most accurate production series of legacy instruments across the timeline of Fender history.
The American Vintage II Limited Edition '77 Telecaster Custom looks, plays, and sounds as if it were plucked from the hands of the last Fender employee that finished building one of these original guitars all those years ago. The distinctive feature making it a limited run is its contoured, comfortable "Belly Cut." Its ’77 “C” shape neck has an undeniable vintage feel with its 7.25” radius maple fingerboard. Contrary to more typical Tele design, the ’77 Custom has a 3-way toggle on the upper bout, that switches between a Wide Range humbucker with CuNiFie magnets in the neck position, and a Pure Vintage ’77 single coil in the bridge position. The use of the humbucker in this Tele was a big deal for Fender at the time, as it was one of their first. The two pickups sit in the middle of a hip-looking 3-play pickguard that matches the curvature of the guitar’s body perfectly, also engulfing the four control knobs. Both sharing the Pure Vintage namesake, the 6-saddle bridge has slotted steel barrel saddles, and the tuning machines bear the “F” stamp.
With all of its specs mimicking the first of its kind as close as they can possibly get, the Limited Edition ’77 Telecaster Custom is an all-around impressive addition to the American Vintage II series that brings the feel of a 70’s Fender Tele to the fingers of a present day player.
