Telecaster Guitars

Built first to be a lasting legend.

The pride of Leo Fender, the Telecaster began its career in 1950 as the world's first successful solid body electric guitar. After already tasting success with his amplifier designs, Leo Fender was noticing a trend toward louder playing. This brought feedback issues from the hollow-body guitars of the time. Fender remedied this problem by bolting a maple neck to a "slab" of alder or ash, and the Telecaster was born. Another defining feature of this groundbreaking design are the duo of single-coil pickups that deliver a unique twang that cuts through any mix while sounding clear and nuanced. The Telecaster's ability to jump from razor sharp cutting tones to mellow jazz tones makes it the "go to" guitar for country, pop, rock, blues, jazz — and every style in between.
