Vintage Fender Telecaster Custom Black 1977


We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


A marvelous Tele Custom with dynamite tone & a super comfy feel. The neck is silky smooth to play, offering effortless access up & down the fretboard. The light weight body is very resonant & really rings out even before the guitar is plugged in. The original Wide Range humbucker delivers warm, rich tones. The bridge pickup is an aftermarket Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro, that sounds fantastic & compliments the neck pickup exceptionally well. Professionally inspected & set up by the experts at Cream City Music, so it's ready to play straight out of the case!

Why We Love Fender

It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
