Launched all the way back in 1951, the Fender Telecaster has been changing the world of rock 'n' roll ever since. With a beautifully clear tone and iconic looks, the Telecaster has been used by players from Keith Richards to Bruce Springsteen, and remains as popular today as it ever has been.
Traditionally featuring a string-thru bridge, bolt-on neck and two single coil pickups, modern Telecasters now offer a range of features and configurations. What hasn't changed is that unmissable Tele twang! All of our Fender Teles are checked on receipt and when shipped out to ensure they're tip-top and gig ready.
