      Fender 60th Anniversary 1962 Telecaster Electric Guitar (H71860)

Join the celebration to honor the guitar that changed popular music forever.

After the Telecaster blazed a new trail through
the 1950s, a new version featuring a bound
body—the Telecaster Custom—was introduced in the early 1960s. The ’62 Telecaster pays striking homage to that guitar, with an Olympic White lacquer finish, black binding
and white pearloid block inlays on a rosewood

On its 1951 introduction, the Telecaster was a
revolutionary instrument that would usher in
whole new eras of musical innovation and
excitement. Sixty years later, in 2011, it is an
archetypal electric guitar with a long and
storied history. The rich history of Fender
guitars begins with the Telecaster, and Fender is
celebrating its 60th anniversary all year with
12 very special "Tele-bration" models that
stay inside the Telecaster's famously elegant
lines while offering the finest and most
unusual takes on the instrument's past,
present and future.
