About the Fender Telecaster

The first choice for rebellious rock 'n' roll guitarists since its inception in 1952, the Fender Telecaster is one electric guitar that just works. As beloved by Country players as by Punks, the Telecaster has an Evergreen appeal that has seen it adapt to every major genre in music.

Famous telecaster players include Keith Richards, Joe Strummer & Bruce Springsteen. The sound of a traditional Telecaster is twangy but strong, cutting and tight. It is as revered for rhythm playing as it is for spry country leads and Chicago Blues soul.

The Telecaster is the other of Fender's two most significant guitar desings and as such is available in every electric guitar range Fender offer from Squier right through to the Custom Shop, taking in the American Elite and Classic Player ranges amongst others along the way.

Traditionally made with two single coil pickups, more modern interpretations of the guitar such as the Player Tele and the Jim Root Telecaster swap out the single coils for hot sounding humbuckers, opening the charm and vibe of the Fender Telecaster to a wider audience than ever.
