Classic tonewoods carved for comfort
Ash and maple are about as quintessential as it gets for Tele tonewoods, so it’s no surprise that the Fender Custom Shop selected them for the 1972 Closet Classic Custom Telecaster. In this case, you get a hand-selected, lightweight ash body that’s easy on your shoulder. The belly-cut contour also contributes to the 1972 Closet Classic Custom Telecaster’s overall lightness and comfort. If you’re a fan of slightly meatier neck carves, then the old-school ’69 U-shaped neck is going to be right up your alley, and the taller-than-average 6105 frets in the round laminated maple fingerboard really let you sink your teeth into left-hand technique.
Rockin’ pickup duo packs plenty of punch
When Fender originally launched the 1972 Telecaster Custom model, they’d set out to create a rock guitar that would appeal to a new generation of more aggressive guitarists. That’s why they outfitted it with a humbucker at the neck and a hotter bridge pickup. To capture that same spirit, the Fender Custom Shop outfitted this 1972 Closet Classic Custom Telecaster with a smoking pickup duo. First, there’s the custom-voiced Wide Range humbucker at the neck, whose beefy tone packs serious impact. To complement that, the 1972 Closet Classic Custom Telecaster comes loaded with a high-output (and somewhat brighter than normal) Twisted Tele bridge pickup. Top that off with a full set of volume and tone controls for each pickup, and the 1972 Closet Classic Custom Telecaster makes dialing in the perfect sound easy.
