9780760347829: The Fender Telecaster: The Life and Times of the Electric Guitar That Changed the World

An in-depth history and celebration of over six decades of the Tele, now available in paperback.

The Fender Telecaster is a working-class hero and the ultimate blue-collar guitar. It wasn't meant to be elegant, pretty, or sophisticated. Designed to be a utilitarian musical instrument, it has lived up to that destiny. In the hands of players from Muddy Waters to James Burton, Bruce Springsteen to Joe Strummer, the Telecaster has made the music of working people - country, blues, punk, rock 'n' roll, and even jazz.

Now available in paperback, this is the complete tale of the electric guitar that came to work and continues to work hard more than a half century after its birth, still resonating with the purity of the first slab of swamp ash that was carved into that now-iconic single-cutaway design. Packed with more than 400 photos of players, guitars, and memorabilia, as well as profiles of the greatest Telecaster players ever, here, finally, is the first suitable tribute to the electric guitar that changed the world.

From the Back Cover:

“Without the Telecaster, there would be a whole lot less music for the world to enjoy!”—Redd Volkaert, from the afterword Working-class hero. The ultimate blue-collar guitar. That is the Fender Telecaster. It wasn’t made to be elegant, pretty, or sophisticated. Instead, the Telecaster was designed to be the ultimate utilitarian musical instrument. And somewhere along the way, it changed the world of music. In the hands of players from James Burton to Muddy Waters, Bruce Springsteen to Joe Strummer, the Telecaster has made the music of working people—country, blues, punk, rock ’n’ roll, even jazz. Here is the complete tale of an electric guitar that came to work and continues to work hard more than half a century after its birth, still resonating with the purity of the first slab of swamp ash that was carved to that iconic single-cutaway design. Packed with more than 400 photos and memorabilia, plus profiles of the great Tele players, this book is a suitable tribute to the Tele. Dig in, and feel the music. “I’m still on the road and so is my Tele. Every hotel room I check into, the first thing I do is take the Telecaster out of its case and lean it against the wall. It looks so good.”—Wilko Johnson, from the foreword
