Fender 60th Anniversary Telecaster® - Blackguard Blonde

6-String Electric Guitar, Maple Neck w/ Case

Product Code: 63358

Authorized Fender Dealer
We're sorry, this product is no longer available.

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" that was introduced in 1950, it's 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: a single solid plank of ash that 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.

Volume, tone and pickup switching—that's it. Now as then, the controls are elegant in their simplicity and solidly reliable in their effect on the sound. Two knurled "chromedome" knobs are mounted on an original-style chrome control plate. The one knob on the Tele features the Delta Tone™ system, in which a detent at the "10" position eliminates all the tone control circuitry and delivers the pure, direct sound of both pickups.
