It's the '72 Tele with Bigsby!

With the Fender 2018 Limited Edition '72 Telecaster with Bigsby in your hands, you can do anything. Anything musical, that is. The Tele took a huge leap forward in 1972 with the addition of a hot humbucking pickup in the neck position — quite possibly inspired by mods performed by guitarists like Mike Bloomfield on their beloved Teles. This axe delivers the Tele twang with the added punch of a neck-position Fender Wide Range humbucker. You also get Fender's cool '70s-style Bullet truss rod and Micro-Tilt neck adjustment along with a Fender Bigsby vibrato. If you're a Tele fan who's after affordable vintage vibe, you can't do better than the Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Bigsby.

Rockin' pickup duo packs plenty of punch

When Fender originally designed the 1972 Telecaster model, they set out to create a more versatile guitar that would appeal to a new generation of more aggressive rock guitarists — as well as younger studio musicians whose predecessors had modified their Teles with vibratos and neck humbuckers for warmer jazz tones. So Fender included one of their Wide Range humbucking pickups in the neck position along with a single-coil Tele bridge pickup for that iconic, biting Telecaster lead tone you've heard on countless hits. Top that off with a full set of volume and tone controls for each pickup, and the 2018 Limited Edition '72 Telecaster with Bigsby makes dialing in the perfect sound a piece of cake.

Vintage-style Bigsby tailpiece for enhanced pitch expression

Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby tailpiece adds to this '72 Telecaster. Based on the original design created by Paul A Bigsby, this meticulous Fender interpretation requires next to no effort to use, making it particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends. The Bigsby — along with the guitar's electronics, Bullet truss rod, Micro-Tilt neck adjustment, and 7.25"-radius maple fingerboard.
