Q has teamed up with Fender once again this month to offer Q readers the chance to win a Fender American Standard Telecaster guitar, worth £1159!
The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster. A hand-made American classic and indispensable workhorse instrument, it has hardly changed since being launched in the 1950s. As the world’s first successful solid-body electric guitar, the Telecaster revolutionised guitar playing, changed the sound of music and became a signature instrument for guitarists worldwide.
From the garage to the club to the stadium, the American Standard Telecaster® guitar is now upgraded with a comfortable new body contour and classic-sounding Fender Custom Shop Twisted Tele® (neck) and Custom Shop Vintage-Style Tele (bridge) pickups.
The latest incarnation of a timeless classic, it rings more fully, brightly and crisply than ever. The list of guitar legends using the Fender Telecaster has included: Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Keith Richards, Chrissie Hynde, Joe Strummer, Francis Rossi and many more.
This month’s caption challenge
