Tele Me About It.

Tele Me Some History

During the period between 1932 and 1949, guitar makers were experimenting with the idea of a solid body electric guitar.  In 1950, Leo Fender crafted the Fender Telecaster, the guitar that put solid body electric guitars on the board.  From that point on, the Telecaster (often referred to as the “Tele”)  placed Fender above the rest in guitar production and creation.

Tele Me Some Facts

The Modern American Tele Deluxe is a force to be reckoned with.  With a solid body made from hand selected Alder wood, N3 Noiseless Pickups, and a 6-Saddled Chromed Brass Bridge, this guitar is a monster.  The hand selected wood gives players a higher quality tone, and is built to last.  With the N3 Noiseless Pickups, your Tele will contain a “snappy, bell-like chime” without the hum.  Locking Tuners help maintain perfect and precise tuning, along with, the 6-Saddled Bridge making the maintenance of intonation a breeze.

Tele Me How to Get One!

Not only do we carry these beautiful Teles, but we also are able to order you custom ones like the one in the video above!  Here at Willis Music, we value a great guitar, and our selection of Telecasters is second to none.  But, don’t just take my word for it.  Come in anytime at our Mall Road location and pick up a Tele.

Tele me how you like it!
