"The flash and fire of 1950’s pickin’ is alive and thriving in the James Burton Telecaster. Featuring three specially-voiced James Burton pickups as well as both five-way “Strat-o-Tele” and advanced S-1 switching, this Tele can isolate, combine, and mix-and-match any pickup combo you can dream up for a massive range of tone from classic clean to down-and-dirty and beyond. The basswood body adds a warm, cutting growl to the solid-body design and the ‘60s-style “U” neck profile feels just like the real thing. Top it off with gold hardware and some hot-rod attitude and this thing is ready to be opened up.
About Fender Artist Series:
Founded by Leo Fender in 1938 as Fender’s Radio Service, what is now the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation began making electric guitars and amplifiers in 1945. The rest, as they say, is history. Creator of the world’s first mass-produced, and by far most popular, solid-bodied electric, Fender is now the world’s leading guitar manufacturer.
Developed hand-in-hand with some of the biggest artists of yesterday and today, the Fender Artist Series is a collaborative line of signature models incorporating hand-selected tonewoods and custom appointments and specs, voiced to specific tones and playing styles by our master builders and the artists themselves. Stratocasters, Telecasters, Jaguars, Jazzmasters, and Jazz, Precision, and Jaguar basses take on new life with the help of some of music’s most revered icons.
