Fender Marks 60 Years of Tele, P Bass

 

Fender will celebrate the 60th Anniversary of two of its most iconic instruments during the 2011 Winter NAMM Show in January by launching two instruments, the 60th Anniversary Telecaster and Precision Bass

Officially named the Telecaster in February 1951, the world’s first successful solidbody electric guitar turns 60. It revolutionized guitar playing, changed the sound of music and became a signature instrument for guitarists worldwide. The 60th Anniversary Telecaster packs more than half a century of classic sound and design into one collectible U.S.-made instrument.

When it was introduced in 1951, the Precision Bass guitar liberated musicians from the confines of the upright bass, quickly becoming the preferred standard. The Precision Bass has been booming ever since.
