Here's a classic guitar that's one of the quintessential instruments that's defined a multitude of music genres from blues and rock to folk and country, including everything in between.....A Vintage 1950's Black Guard Telecaster! This tele comes to us from legendary session Guitarist/Composer Lyle Workman ( Todd Rundgren , Sting, Beck, Superbad, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Good Boys ).

In early 1951, Fender renamed it's only production solid-body guitar the Telecaster, replacing the short-lived Broadcaster moniker used in late 1950. The Telecaster quickly became the guitar of its age, propelling the status of the solid-body electric guitar from novelty to the defining instrument of popular music. Like most long-lasting guitar models, the Tele has seen its share of variations and specialty models come off the line since the early '50s. The standard no-frills Telecaster, however, has stayed largely the same, strutting two single-coil pickups, a slab body of Ash (or later Alder), and an unmistakable twang that helped shape the sound of country and rock music.
