Fender is proud to introduce a new guitar and bass that commemorate six decades of the company’s original pair of groundbreaking instruments—the Telecaster and Precision Bass guitars. Early 2011 sees the release of the 60th Anniversary Telecaster of which feature a new “Blackguard Blonde” finish created especially for the occasion.
The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the instrument that was officially named the Telecaster in February 1951. It was the world’s first successful solid-body electric guitar, transforming the role of the guitar in popular music and becoming an enduring model of form and function in the process. Still elegantly simple after 60 years, it remains the versatile voice of diverse and creative guitarists worldwide.
The 60th Anniversary Telecaster honors its predecessors by packing more than half a century of classic sound and design into one collectible U.S.-made instrument, with a striking combination of vintage looks and modern Telecaster technology. Features include an ash body with a Blackguard Blonde thin-skin lacquer finish, tinted maple neck and fretboard with modern 9.5” radius and medium jumbo frets, American Vintage Telecaster single-coil pickups, black pickguard, American Standard bridge with bent steel saddles and stamped brass plate, modern tuners, commemorative neckplate and Fender/SKB® molded case.
