Q has teamed up with Fender this month to offer readers the chance to win a Chris Shiflett Fender® Telecaster® Deluxe, worth £814! Chris Shiflett has his feet firmly planted in two worlds, as both guitarist in Foo Fighters and frontman of his country side-project Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants. His abiding love for the Telecaster® guitar and for a huge humbucking sound now comes together in one new instrument with his name on it – the Chris Shiflett Telecaster® Deluxe.
Modelled closely on Shiflett’s favourite 1972 Telecaster® Deluxe guitar, it features an Arctic White finish, a four-ply white pearl pickguard, a pair of custom-designed high-output humbucking pickups, a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard, custom-stencilled hard-shell case and Shiflett’s signature on the headstock.
