The top of the line American Original series boasts the highest build quality, specs and sound of any Fender production guitar. What you're getting here are specific features associated with a decade of Fender history.

'70s Telecasters handle higher gain better than any other vintage-inspired Fender and deliver a unique tone using the neck position Wide Range humbucker.

Fender Adds NEW American Original Models + The Best Limited Edition Esquires We Have Played!

Construction

In the build department, the '70s Tele deviates very little from the classic formula. It's made of a lacquered alder body with a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard packing just 21 tall frets. 

At a 25.5-inch scale length and 9.5-inch radius fretboard, the Tele playability is that which you know and love. The three-saddle bridge and bone nut ensure minimal string slippage and roadworthy stability.

Sound

The Wide Range neck humbucker was a game changer at the time. High gain lead tones were becoming far more commonplace and this was a guitar that could successfully achieve them. 

Its wide bobbins and CuNiFe rod magnets allow for a creamy, brilliant sound in cleans, edge of break-up and drive. This is complimented by the thinner, lively Tim Shaw single coil in the bridge position.
