Eric Clapton. B.B. King. Keith Richards.
What do all of these legendary musicians have in common? They have all rocked out on the Telecaster.
First released all the way back in 1951, this Fender electric guitar has become a legend in and of itself in its 70-year run.
Funnily enough, there were many critics of the original Telecaster, who laughed at its unique shape, referring to it as a “snow shovel.” It didn’t take long for those who made fun of the guitar to be proven wrong.
Critics and guitar players alike discovered that the Telecaster was easy to play, sounded spectacular and was designed to last.
