The second variation of the Telecaster Custom was introduced in 1972, and was a landmark development for Fender, combining their wide range humbucker pickup and classic single coil bridge position sound, offering a level of versatility that proved hugely popular with players of the time.
This 1973 Fender Telecaster Custom is a great example from the second year of production, with a fairly rare Mocha Brown finish that is uncommon for the model. The neck is comfortable and smooth to play, while the original Seth Lover designed Wide Range Humbucker pickup sounds fantastic, combing the fuller sound of a Gibson style humbucker with the brilliance and clarity of a typical Fender pickup. Paired with the original grey bottom single coil in the bridge position, this Telecaster Custom is as tonally versatile as they come.
This guitar is in very good condition, with some minor play wear and buckle rash, but excessive areas of wear. There is also some slight tarnishing to the original ashtray bridge cover and other hardware. The guitar is internally and externally original, with the exception of the pots, which have been replaced. This guitar also includes its original hard case.
This guitar has been given a full service by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
