1953 Fender Telecaster

 
 
 

The Telecaster is not only the first production solidbody electric guitar, it is also the classic one.
Created by Leo Fender in 1950, its design has seldom changed over the last 65 years.
Truth is, it can’t really be bettered: in its simplicity lies its success.

The list of great musicians who have played a Tele is literally endless:
Muddy Waters, Albert Collins, Steve Cropper, Danny Gatton, PJ Harvey, Frank Black, James Burton…

This all original instrument is a great example of the classic Blackguard Tele.
It has been part of the collection of one of the world's most esteemed Fender experts
and comes complete with a signed letter and rare poodle case.
