The Fender Telecaster
The Fender Telecaster was introduced, as the Fender Broadcaster in 1950. The Fender Telecaster’s classic sound ranges from both a bright and rich tone at the slanted bridge pick up through to a warmer, blues tone at the neck.
The bridge pickup produces the higher output of the two, whilst an internal capacitor allows treble sounds to bleed through while supressing the middle and lower ranges. The Telecaster’s solid body marked a clear departure from and alleviated the feedback problems common to hollow bodied electric guitars.
The Telecaster’s extreme versatility ensured it was a successful guitar for most music styles from country , blues and rock through to jazz and fusion. The classic Telecaster guitar sound has been forever impressed into rock and roll by many iconic artists incluing:
George Harrison (Let it Be)
