The first Telecaster guitar rolled off the assembly line in 1951, and since then has been an indispensable tool for guitarists in all genres of music. Country, rock and roll, punk, blues, funk, and every other creative genre all owe a debt to the sound of the “Tele”. For 2011, the 60th Anniversary of the Telecaster, Fender is releasing 12 different USA-made Telecasters that span the spectrum of Telecaster styles over the years, from classic designs like the Rosewood Telecaster, made famous by George Harrison in the ’60s, to modern classics like the Cabronita Telecaster. Some of these models were previously available only as Custom Shop models, so the appearance of a USA version is very exciting. Around every month starting in March a new Telecaster will be released, and all of these will be available through The Music Zoo. Follow the jump for the run down, month by month.
