During the late sixties, Fender had been attempting to shed its identity as the "single-coil guitar company" in order to better compete with Gibson. In comes Gibson pick-up designer Seth Lover to do just that, designing the Fender "Wide Range" humbucker. On this '73 Deluxe Telecaster you'll find two Wide Range pick-ups in the bridge and neck positions, and a control format not dissimilar to a Gibson guitar. The Wide Range pick-ups sound similar to Gibson pick-ups as well, but with a bit more clarity. The Fender Telecaster Deluxe is a great merging of Gibson humbucking sound and classic Fender playability. This piece has a nice straight neck and only a few dings and some light wear on the body; all in all in excellent condition. Comes with a gigbag.
8/10 (excellent condition) 1973 Made in the USA
