The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster.  The Fender Telecaster, known as the Tele, is the world’s first commercial solid-body, single-cutaway electric guitar made by Fender.  Leo Fender developed his Fender Telecaster in 1950, when he perfected the budding art of solid body guitar construction. In early 1951—only a few months after the Broadcaster was officially introduced in late 1950—Fender dropped this name at the request of Gretsch, which had been selling a “Broadkaster” drum kit since 1948. the moment I saw first Telecaster? It was probably on the TV show Hee Haw. Ever since, this guitar has been the original guitar that started Fender’s huge march into contemporary music history. The Fender Telecaster has truly earned its place in the electric guitar pantheon. Telecasters have transformed music worldwide and in nearly every genre: rock ‘n’ roll, country and western, jazz, rhythm and blues and many genres. As the first mass-produced solid body electric guitar and  one of the first electric guitars in the world but you still see it on stages all the time! It’s a durable, primitive tool that encourages honest and organic musical activity. Tele from a true master.
