Pre CBS Fender Telecaster (1954-1965)

fender telecaster pre cbs

The Telecaster is the first, and some would say the last great guitar. It's been around since the 1950s and not too much has changed in its construction or the materials used. There's been a few name changes along the way to, the Tele also went by the name of Broadcaster, Esquire and Nocaster.

One thing that has changed however is production methods, a brand new Tele today will not have been made with the same care and attention as those built prior to 1965. Pre CBS Telecasters are the 'Holy Grail' of guitars, and it's for this reason that they are highly sought after, and more than a little bit expensive.
