1972 FenderCustom Telecaster – Lake Placid Blue Metallic

This beautiful 1972 Fender Custom Telecaster in Lake Placid Blue is fully original! In 1973, Fender discontinued all metallic finishes (including Lake Placid Blue) until the early 80’s. That makes this guitar a stunning example from that transitional era! This guitar is in wonderful shape, with plenty of fret life left. Plus, the Bigsby offers added sustain and versatility to an already incredible guitar.
