Fender Telecaster USA – 60th Anniversary

Fender Telecaster USA – 60th Anniversary

$1,199.99 CAD

Recently Traded – Hard Case Included

This is where it all began: in 1951, Leo Fender released the Telecaster – the world’s first commercially successful solidbody electric guitar. Renamed from “Broadcaster” which was introduced in 1950, it has a simple, yet enormously useful design ”borne out of Leo’s experience with electrifying Hawaiian steel guitars” that has been embraced over the years by guitarists from a wide range musical genres and copied by guitar builders all over the globe.

Just like the original, this 60th Anniversary Telecaster has the features that set the template for solidbody electric guitar design: an ash body provides the basis for the storied twangy sound, a revolutionary one-piece bolt-on maple neck (until the Tele, bolt-on necks had only been used on banjos) the classic string-thru-body bridge, and dual single-coil pickups with the treble pickup mounted on the bridge plate (a coupling that helps characterize the Tele sound). From crisp signature sparkle at the bridge to warmth and fullness at the neck, the 60th Anniversary Telecaster gets its rich depth, definition and dynamics from dual American Vintage Telecaster single-coil pickups.

Note the locking machine heads
