1973 Fender Telecaster Deluxe Sunburst

Price Available By Request

Fender’s third and final late-’60s/early-’70s experiment with redesigned Telecaster models was the Telecaster Deluxe, developed in 1972 and introduced in 1973, here we have an extremely clean example from the 1st year of issue SN 525101

Along with its predecessors, the Telecaster Thinline (1968) and the Telecaster Custom (1972), the Deluxe represented Fender’s first forays into the world of humbucking pickups. These produced the kind of thick, warm guitar sound in vogue during that era, which stood in marked contrast to the traditional 1950s-1960s Fender single-coil sound typified by the bright, snappy signature tone of the Telecaster (its bridge pickup in particular) and the sparkle of the Stratocaster.

This guitar is exceptionally clean with an equally clean original hard-shell case, all original components without exception, very clean & rust free metalwork, very low action & superb playability & tone, a close inspection around the edges of the body & neck will find this guitar to be 99.9% ding free
