The Fender Telecaster - The Telecaster has been around since 1951 and has been a favorite of many musicians. The Telecaster features two pickups, great sustain and is popular with many country artists. Major changes to the Telecaster included the addition of a Rosewood fingerboard and 8 screw pick guard in 1959. In 1965 Fender added the large "F" Fender Logo to the neck plate. These are highly popular guitars and a favorite of mine to photograph.
