Classic Series '72 Telecaster Custom, Pau Ferro Fingerboard, Black
Classic Tele® Custom StyleAdventurous guitarists started hot-rodding their Telecasters in the late '60s and early '70s with big-sounding humbucking neck pickups that lent new style and swagger to rock music.

A favorite of players from '70s rock to modern U.K. alt-rock and much more.
