Twelve new Telecasters to celebrate 60th anniversary

The Fender Telecaster, released by Leo Fender in 1951, was the first successful production solid-body electric guitar. To celebrate the Telecaster’s 60th anniversary, Fender is releasing 12 different models in limited runs throughout 2011.

The rangeĀ  includes a beautiful Olympic White thinline – my personal favourite – a Cabronita version with TV Jones Filter’Tron pickups, the Indiana Barn ’52 made from pine salvaged from a 200-year-old barn, and the Lamboo which features a bamboo neck and laminated bamboo top.

Photos and further details of the limited edition Telecasters are available at the Music Radar website.

The Fender Custom Shop is also reissuing historically important Telecasters, including the Nocaster, Broadcaster and Telecaster prototype. These custom models are listed on the Custom Shop website.
