The early seventies catalogues are longer than those preceding them, typically with one instrument per page; this one has 68 full colour pages, including covers - significantly less than the 96 pages of the 1970 catalogue, having a smaller amplifier range and no longer including Fender banjos. Two guitars and one bass have also been dropped from the line, the Fender Custom and the Coronado (Antigua) six and twelve string guitars and bass.

For convenience, the catalogue is reproduced here in sections, (on this page) guitars, mandolin and electric violin, but also basses, steel guitars, amplifiers and keyboards.

This catalogue is dated 1972, but was most likely printed in the second half of that year, as it includes guitars, amplifiers and finish options not included in early-'72 price lists. New models include the Telecaster Deluxe, which takes pride-of-place as the first guitar in the catalogue. This is the final inclusion of the mandolin and electric violin, both of which would be discontinued in early 1974.

It featured the following guitars. Click on the images for full size versions, or click on the model names below for more about each instrument. Have a look at the other Fender guitar catalogues on this site.

Vintage Guitar and Bass Comment left 28th June 2013 08:08:25
Hi Gregg, the Deluxe 8 had a recommended retail price of $185 in February 1972. The three legs were optional at an extra $39.50.
