This Limited Telecaster Custom features a unique comfort-contoured body with belly cut, a 3-way toggle located on the upper bout and dual volume and tone controls mounted to a stylish, elongated pickguard.

This Fender Limited Edition American Vintage II 1977 Telecaster Custom is an amazing recreation of the revolutionary design that changed the sound of music. Its period-accurate bodies and necks, premium Wine Red finish, year-specific pickups and hardware offer a faithful representation of classic Fender craftsmanship and tone - a must-have for any serious collector.

The Telecaster® Custom marked one of Fender’s earliest forays into the use of humbucking pickups. The American Vintage II Limited 1977 Telecaster Custom reproduces the quintessential tone and feel of the original.

This Tele features a Wide Range humbucking pickup in the neck position and a Pure Vintage ‘77 single-coil Tele® pickup in the bridge position. To create an authentic Wide-Range humbucking pickup, Fender resurrected CuNiFe magnets, which had been out of production since 1981, and are an essential element in recreating the sonics of the original.

The American Vintage II Limited 1977 Telecaster Custom plays like a dream with a ‘77 “C”-shape hard rock maple neck with a 7.25” radius maple or rosewood fingerboard and vintage tall frets. Other features include a Tele bridge with 6 slotted steel barrel saddles, “F” stamped tuners, a convenient “Bullet” style truss rod nut and a three-bolt neck plate with Micro-Tilt™ mechanism.

The instruments in the American Vintage II series are direct descendants of the original Fenders: designed for players with a fine appreciation for vintage Fender tone and feel and built with unmatched quality, down to the last screw. These are Fender electrics in their purest form: Fender American Vintage II, the stuff of legends.
