For almost 70 years, the Fender Telecaster has been a integral part of countless hit records and live rigs. The workhorse guitar was first introduced as the Broadcaster in 1950, and since then the instrument hasn’t changed a whole lot. The dead-simple design features a solid body with a single cutaway, a bolt-on neck and a couple pickups. That basic setup allowed for versatility and it became a favorite of musicians in genres ranging from country to jazz to metal.[embedded content]
