An in-depth history and celebration of over six decades of the Tele, now available in paperback.

The Fender Telecaster is a working-class hero and the ultimate blue-collar guitar. It wasn''t meant to be elegant, pretty, or sophisticated. Designed to be a utilitarian musical instrument, it has lived up to that destiny. In the hands of players from Muddy Waters to James Burton, Bruce Springsteen to Joe Strummer, the Telecaster has made the music of working people - country, blues, punk, rock ''n'' roll, and even jazz.

Now available in paperback, this is the complete tale of the electric guitar that came to work and continues to work hard more than a half century after its birth, still resonating with the purity of the first slab of swamp ash that was carved into that now-iconic single-cutaway design.
