On its 1951 introduction, the Telecaster was a revolutionary instrument that would usher in whole new eras of musical innovation and excitement. Sixty years later, in 2011, it is an archetypal electric guitar with a long and storied history. The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster, and they're celebrating its 60th anniversary all year with 12 very special Tele-bration models that stay inside the Telecaster's famously elegant lines while offering the finest and most unusual takes on the instrument's past, present and future.
The 75 Telecaster is a model that takes its most unusual cue from another classic Fender instrument, the 1975 Jazz Bass® guitar. That means an ash body with a Natural finish and a maple neck with black block inlays, with an arm contour, 3-ply black-white-black pickguard and Jazz Bass® control knobs.
