Alex Kapranos's Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe

Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand occasionally plays a black Fender Deluxe guitar. While the black Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe we are showing you is a very close alternative (down to the color, body style, dual humbuckers, and maple neck), the actual one Kapranos uses is likely vintage from the 60s or 70s.

However, he gives a fan advice on Twitter on how to replicate his guitar tone, while not shelling out a ton of cash for a USA-made vintage Fender: "...those teles are made well enough, but the pickups that come with it are terrible. Replace them and you'll have a great guitar. Buy a cheap 2nd hand Mexican made Telecaster Deluxe, then get replacement pickups from @the_creamery ..."
