Fender experimented with a rosewood
Telecaster design in the late 1960s. A very
few of the exceptionally heavy guitars were
produced, most famously the one played by
George Harrison at the Beatles' famed
"rooftop concert" of Jan. 30, 1969, in London.
Fender's Lite Rosewood Telecaster evokes
that elusive instrument and greatly lightens
the weight by sandwiching a dark-stained
spruce body core between a rosewood top
and back.

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.
