Vintage 1972 Fender Telecaster Left Handed guitar
Posted on May 25 2020
This vintage 1972 Fender Telecaster made for left handed players came through the shop a few years ago. Lefty Fender Telecaster guitars made from the 1950s through the 1970s are very rare and difficult to find. I'm always a vintage Fender guitar buyer but I especially love the Telecaster model. Please contact me here to sell a vintage Fender Telecaster guitar.

Leo Fender's Telecaster model broke boundaries and has remained a standard in both the vintage playing and collecting guitar arenas. The Telecaster has been in constant production since its introduction as the Broadcaster in 1951. The standard Telecaster went through modest changes for a Fender guitar throughout the early 1970s. The Telecaster always featured two single coil pickups, solid Ash body (usually, for opaque finishes) and Maple neck with a four bolt neck joint. There has always been a market for the Fender Telecaster.
This rare lefty 1972 Fender Telecaster has survived in beautiful original condition with all the cool case candy. This one still has its original hang tags with warranty card, Fender brand strap, grey 1/4" cable and Fender brand picks. Left hand vintage guitars are incredibly difficult to track down so I'm very proud to be offering this one in this condition. The only repair it need was a vintage replacement switch since the original was broken. I sourced a proper early 1970s switch and had it professionally installed so that it would still have all its original equipment. There's a very small screw hole at the top of the headstock likely from an additional strap button at some point. The original Rosewood fretboard and frets are perfectly straight with no playing wear to speak of. The pickups are strong and ready to twang again. It's clear that this guitar was purchased and promptly retired to the closet. Left handed Fender production numbers were so small that Fender never made a lefty "TELECASTER" logo for the headstock (edit: sold!)
