Fender Classic '72 Telecaster Custom
mexico ect ...


nice sleeve, but not super fast either (but I, for that matter!) ... so no souçail! good ergonomics


for her, it took me quite a test to come out to adjust the height of the microphones until the mixture is smooth and can move doubled without much change in volume after ... but here it is Its what I was looking for ... fender blues deluxe tweed associated ...
Note: big flaw for my taste on the pulling ropes mounted delivery, with 1 October 46 it's all the same guitar and it inspires more confidence to change immediately!


last few days, I had other TV us, although initially I would say that the difference is smaller it is probably in a few months I can really evaluate the difference ... the price has me the proper air
Another remark: shielding strongly advised as copper and I can reseal the selector passage (making ...)

-Characteristics have already been listed


The handle is really great fun, finally, a round fender! It may be a bit heavy after a 3 hour concert but it's still totally appropriate! It is perfectly balanced it on any side finally looks good to play with such a scratch is really a treat!


Then! How to say it is just great: very versatile than a tele std SS we move from a very nice clean edge over the big fat rock without problem, I think changed the micro bridge with a little more roundness to 59 while keeping some of its edge but the legendary TV config is still very good: the sauce really sends hb smooth and single coil gives you the thrill is like when you listen to some riff Keith Richards! The two microphones blend really well together I see much change after ...
Anyway that said, THAT'S GOOD!


Already I was really charmed by its looks devastating (I am jealous of bcp believe me) and after test I knew that one day she will be mine! I have for almost 4 months and believe me I love it as much as the first day maybe even more! If you want a guitar with:
-A look that kills
-Its a killer
It its cutting edge of TV, but having the versatility of a Start

Fender Classic '72 Telecaster Custom
-21 Frets
-2 Pickups (1 single and 1 double humbucker bridge in handle)
-2 Volumes and 2 tones
Handle very pleasant smooth-
-Mechanical in 1972 .... we like it or not! (Note the strings a password but also breaks)
3-ply plates
-Available in sunburst (mine) and black (like picture ).... I think that all c

attention some changes are needed:
Indeed, jai modified bridge pickup with a Seymour Duncan and I littlebucker doi sdir the guitar gains enormously in power. more feedback (ms ct very very slight) and more annoying buzz. my fender has become more fluid in the game and also consistency.
jai also changed the bridge and dropped out of home for a much more efficient and avoiding to the maximum detuning. tip jack also undergoes a change: It is now a gibson square type that took place on the body of my beautiful. jai ... also added two masses fender had apparently forgotten to do (!!!). short, set by the mechanisms that are not ds Schaller, she has all of great!


Using ultra simple (a constant for me who needs a maximum of ease ... see my other review)
access to the treble is good, weight is Ok
It is versatile and regularly go out of tune. Live invest in a tuner with bypass!

attention some changes are needed:
it goes out of tune at all with the new bridge, this guitar a real gem!


C's strong point: it is able to have very different sounds and c's why I bought a simple microphone to sound very dry (sometimes quite close to the garage rock) and a very fat humbucker (sometimes too, it covers a bit I find his colleague)
c a really good microphone setup. and even if we can get better for everyone, these pickups complement a lot and you will not deus!

attention some changes are needed:
the neck pickup no longer covers her little brother and it is perfect


Very versatile, very safe, it will pricurera lot of fun. However, if you're looking for pure grain, heavy distortion, get ready to change the humbucker (and just because a dc may no longer stick ...) because it covers just his friend. of course, if you are looking for against a partner who's around, asking to be tamed and demands attention ... you will be delighted and served! (Like me)

attention some changes are needed:
even more delighted than happy now, thanks mainly to change the bridge pickup!

cachalotblanc's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fender Classic '72 Telecaster Custom
Republication of the model born in 1972 whose production stopped in 1980.

Telecaster uncommon, manufactured in smaller series.

Namely, the 1st series from 72 to 75 were not found sumptuous and now

Made in Mexico with selected woods in the United States (according to Fender), available in rosewood or maple neck, 21 frets "vintage" (fine) on an intermediate radius profile Fender vintage (but not large "round" in hand, "U ") to facilitate the taking with the whole hand, the thumb can go over to look for the E major.

Standard Telecaster in a micro bridge.
1 humbucker Fender "Wide Range" in handle, model "filed" a priori

3 vintage bridge saddles nickel.

1 + 1 control volume adjustment tone by micro or 4 knobs

A 3-position selector bridge / bridge-neck / neck


The handle is typical vintage, absolutely not in line with handles high-speed lines to go down to 160 in the black sextuplets!
No, here is comfort grip "rustic" but strong and "manly."

We like or not like it!

The action set properly (like any instrument that should be) is very nice.

On the average weight is well balanced and can be played for hours without suffering, it compels Telecaster does not have to go trough the stomach and cutting of the forearm as his little sister ... but Stratocaster it does (gets worse!)

The sound is its personality and originality! All in all this, we chose it for that!

This guitar is an alternative, or you love it or you hate it and there is no interest! (There are tools like that ...)


Instrument reflecting perfectly the sounds of 70's, both vintage with a twist of "dirt", a touch of aggressiveness when you push the knobs.

Sound in a velvet glove of steel.

The micro bridge is cheap but rather typical Telecaster, it is far from being one of the best representative, I highly recommend the upgrade on this model (Seymour, Fender Custom Shop ...) to render the most beautiful of worthy "twang" Telecaster!

The humbucker is the key to this guitar! not a humbucker ultra powerful enough, but its clear and warm drool a bit when pushed into overdrive (the famous sound of K. Richards 70 days'!!) grain truly personal. It provides a surprising versatility, clean, cozy jazz, blues crunchy, rock "antique"

Never use it on a transistor amp (like all guitars), it would be a fatal ereur and illogical, and never try to make the "death-metal-punk-hard core" ...

no, no ... vintage 70 'here!


I had to play on OCASI Telecaster moult, some are most excellent (IR 52 'and 60') but the disappointing series US standards, the Mexican series has a good quality / price ratio, but that's it ...

The Custom 72 'RI's personality, look and texture of sound.

Both by his telecaster bridge pickup becomes more versatile and more "rich", most original (and not original!) By the presence of the humbucker.

The principle of controls at the micro Gibson is really a decisive factor.

Value for money with no problem, the violin is more than correct!

Absolute and final choice ... again, as with the telecaster in general we like or not like it!
