Classic Vibe '70s Telecaster Custom in Black with Maple Fingerboard

General Description:

Introduced in 1972, the Telecaster Custom is a great example of Fender adapting to its times. By this point, Fender guitars remained popular but the thicker, fuller, higher output sound of the humbucker had taken over as king for rock music. So Fender made a power play and nabbed Seth Lover, the man that developed the original humbuckers for Gibson. Lover designed the Wide Range humbucker which yielded a new tonal character compared to his previous Gibson designs and proved to be a wholly “Fender” sound.

The Telecaster Custom was redesigned in 1972 with the most notable change being the addition of the Wide Range humbucker in the neck position. By this time, many notable players had hot-rodded their Teles with neck humbuckers to complement the bridge pickup’s twangy bite with a warmer, fuller sound for rhythm playing. Fender took note of this and a new style was born!

The Squier Classic Vibe ‘70s Telecaster Custom is a throwback to this model featuring Fender designed alnico pickups, including the Wide Range style neck pickup, as well as the elongated pickguard and full control scheme that these models were known for. We consider the Classic Vibe series to be some of the best values on the electric guitar market for both beginners hoping to start off with a quality instrument and for seasoned players that want to add something different to their arsenal at a price-point that doesn’t break the bank.

From the Fender website:

"The Classic Vibe ‘70s Telecaster Custom is a faithful nod to the 1970s evolution of the Tele®, creating incredible tone courtesy of the Fender-Designed alnico single-coil and Wide Range humbucking pickups. Player-friendly features include a slim, comfortable "C" shaped neck profile with an easy playing 9.5" radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets, as well as a vintage style string-through-body Telecaster bridge with barrel saddles for solid string stability. This throwback Squier model also features 1970s-inspired headstock markings, rich-looking nickel-plated hardware and a slick vintage-tint gloss neck finish for an old-school vibe."

Cosmetic Condition:

This guitar was well kept with only one notable point of cosmetic damage. The guitar sustained a minor blow to the butt, on the back edge just north of the strap button. This left a small ding and a subtle streak that’s about ¾” long. We would rate this guitar as in EXCELLENT CONDITION.
