Fender American Vintage II 1975 Telecaster Deluxe 3-Color Sunburst (804)
Billed as the top model in the Telecaster family when it debuted in 1972, the Telecaster Deluxe was also Fender’s first solid-body Tele to feature two humbucking pickups.
Sporting a large Stratocaster headstock and comfort-contoured belly cut, the American Vintage II 1975 Telecaster Deluxe is outfitted with a pair of Wide-Range Humbucking pickups mounted to an elongated pickguard with dual volume and tone controls and a 3-way toggle located on the upper bout.
The Wide-Range Humbucking pickups used in the American Vintage II series feature CuNiFe (like AlNiCo, this abbreviation stands for the alloys that comprise the magnets—copper/nickel/iron), which is a unique material that can be machined into screws to be used as adjustable pole pieces. These humbucking pickups, originally designed in the early ’70s by famed pickup designer Seth Lover, are exact reproductions of the originals.
