The Fender Telecaster
“I wouldn’t be windmilling a Fender Telecaster if it weren’t for Pete Townshend".
First developed in 1950 by Leo Fender, the Telecaster became the world's first commercially successful bolt-on neck, solid-body electric guitar on the market. Its beautifully clean lines, versatility and revolutionary sound have had a huge impact on popular music around the world, and guitarists are still drawn to them today, just as they were, nearly 70 years ago.
"Let's take everything we think we know about solid body electrifying guitars and throw it out the window. Let's start over."
Leo Fender on the invention of the Telecaster
Originally called a ‘Fender Broadcaster’, it was met with some harsh reviews, with some competitors and naysayers comparing it to a paddle. Ironically, the guitar has remained, almost unchanged since the earliest models. In 1951 Gretsch ‘asked’ Fender to change the name because they were already selling a drum kit called the ‘Broadkaster’. There was never a formal lawsuit as Fender immediately removed ‘Broadcaster’ from the headstock. The ‘No-Casters’ (as they became known) were in production for just a few months before the guitar was renamed the ‘Telecaster’.
With just one three-position selector switch (allowing for different pickup configurations), and two knobs for controlling volume and tone, the Telecaster, like the Stratocaster, is highly customisable, making it a perfect canvas for new and revolutionary tones throughout the years and has often been referred to as THE workhorse of guitars.
“The Fender Telecaster is a much better invention than the AK-47… A Fender Telecaster has much more penetration… It's a better killer… it's got better communication… You see....the trouble with an AK-47 is that they’re all dead. If you've got a Fender Telecaster.....or like if you've got a Stratocaster, and you play 'Peggy Sue' like Buddy Holly did… Now how many people are you going to get with that? And they are all going to live… and that's going to live forever... I suppose that's what I like about Rock n' Roll".

I designed the print size to fit standard off the shelf frames in the US and Europe in order to save on costs for customers in their respective territories.
The 11.8 x 11.8" print (30 x 30cm including border) is signed with it's own individual limited edition number (1 of only 50) then laid on a sheet of tissue paper before being carefully rolled and placed inside a strong reinforced cardboard tube or ultra strong corrugated envelope for shipping purposes. It will fit into a 12" x 12" frame, a 13" x 13" frame and a 14" x 14" depending how big the mount border you prefer (the one illustrated in the room with the lamp would be a 14" x 14" frame, whilst the frame with the smaller mount would fit a 12" x 12" frame.
