It's a real treat to see this unique dual humbucker Telecaster back on the scene. With a dedicated tone and volume control for each pickup, it's easy to access a full, rich pallet of sonic color. You can go from subtle jazz to total rock mayhem with ease, and for a price that wont break the bank! The playabilty and build quality are top notch and reflect the current high level that exists with Fender products. Truth be known, these new Deluxes are actually better in many ways than the originals they replicate (which were decent in their own right)....I know, because I own one and have played it for a long, long time. If you are looking for an exceptional guitar, with great tone, tons of volume, and that can take a pounding, you really need to check out these new Telecaster Deluxes!

road worn but still takes a beatin well

By rob

Comments about Fender Road Worn 1972 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

I'm kinda an abrasive player guitar gets slung around a bit and this guitar has taken it pretty well. I love teles but am mainly a strat player which is why i dig the headstock. i got a 72 thinline too and it has a similar sound but i like this one better cause i like solid bodies more. all in all if u like havin the range from fat bottom to clear leads check this guitar out. thru my hotrod deluxe it sounds sick.

Wow what a sweet axe

By James

Comments about Fender Road Worn 1972 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

I've played a ton of fenders and never was really blown away until I put my hands on this road worn variation. I have had a fender Japanese tele in the past that I never played after bringing it home. Typically I play my prs custom 24 with the knob turned to split the coils for the fender sound because I was unwilling to sacrifice playability. However the cool factor of the road worn models blew me away. They play like smooth custom shop pieces playing cirlces around the american standard models in my opinion. I am waiting on my guitar allowance fund to replenish and then running to gc to pick up one of these bad boys. I can't decide between this one and the 50s strat. Maybe I'll compromise and get both. You can't go wrong with the road worn. Get the old axe look without the dead sound and struggling playability of real vintage pieces

Comments about Fender Road Worn 1972 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

This is a must have for any fender fanatic! Tone-wise its superb!The finish on the guitar cosmetically is beautiful. Although it has a maple neck it still maintains a great amount of warmth. On top of tone its priced right. Like I said definitely a must have!

I Love This Telecaster!

By Joel

from Cheney, WA

Comments about Fender Road Worn 1972 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

So this guitar is even better than I dreamed! I didn't actually purchase this myself, but a very good friend of mine did because he heard me talking about it and so he had me check it out. I've always liked Telecasters cause they look so sweet and have that "Don't mess with me" look about them. But what makes this guy special is that it doesn't have all the metal on it that a lot of the others have, and its got two humbuckers which can carry the heavier end of the spectrum better. I also like the worn look which I think adds to the image I mentioned earlier. I mean honestly, if nothing else buy this guitar just because it looks amazing! But that's not enough for Fender! They give it the easy playability on the neck and those duel humbucker pickups just add so much more versatility too it.

Cool with a capital C

By ddmatthews

from Ravenna, OH

Comments about Fender Road Worn 1972 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

This is a 'road worn' edition of a guitar I have been lusting after for years. The road-worn-ness add a great deal of cool to an already cool guitar. The humbuckers make it very thick-sounding for a telecaster and the dual volumes and tone pots make it very versatile in regards to tone. I'd be a little more apt to say it is perfect, but I'm a bit more fond of the 50's headstock on teles. I'd like to add pull-to-tap-coil pots on the tone pots and this will be able to do the full range without adding switches. Totally cool!!

WOW!!!

By Steve

Comments about Fender Road Worn 1972 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

WOW, talk about a guitar. This thing is probably one of the sweetest guitars I have ever played. I love the feel of a telecaster but i love the sound of a humbucker. This guitar has both! It doesn't get any better than this. Such a huge sound out of a telecaster body. Very cool!
