These new 70s Fender Made in Japan Limited 70s Telecaster Deluxe models have landed with dealers in the last few weeks and are possibly some of the coolest guitars from the big F in ages!

With three colours on offer including 3-Tone Sunburst, Butterscotch and Lake Placid Blue these limited-run Telecaster Deluxe models from Japan are great looking guitars. What makes them super interesting is the pair of Wide Range Humbuckers, with two volume and tone controls wired via a three-way switch and a synchronised tremolo system.

Three Classic Colours

The 3-Tone Sunburst and Butterscotch models are both ash bodies and U shaped maple necks with maple fretboards, whereas the solid colour Lake Placid Blue uses an alder body instead, with a maple neck and rosewood fretboard. All models have a tummy cut on the rear of the body, along with a ’70s three-bolt neck and a larger CBS-era headstock, plus they all have 21 vintage style narrow-tall frets.

Telecaster with a Trem!

You don’t see many Tele-style guitars with a Fender synchronized tremolo system and so I can see these being super popular, and as they are all made in Japan I bet the build quality, fit and finish will be great as well. Definitely, one to watch out for at your local Fender dealer!

RRP – GBP 1099
