Overview

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
fretboard.

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.
