    Product Description

    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.

    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.


    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.

    Unfortunately underwhelmed! I will try Guitar Village or Guitarguitar, et Al, etc. From now on.

    A beautifully crafted instrument. The Nitro finish is flawless and smells sweet and delicious. The weight is a nice light/medium (7.5 pounds) and strapping it up it is a well balanced guitar with no neck dive. The neck has a perfect feel for me, not too chunky or too thin and plugged into a valve amp it sounds sublime. The combination of the single coil and wide range humbucker produces a very unique sound and every switch position of the toggle switch has a wide usable tonal range. Unplugged, the solid Alder body has a remarkable resonance and feel when playing. It just feels great to me. Anderton’s service was impeccable. Thank you Anderton’s for helping me find a true keeper!!
