The 60th Anniversary Telecaster packs more than half a century of classic sound and design into one collectible U.S.-made electric guitar.

Telecaster was the world's first successful solid body electric guitar, launched back in 1951.

It revolutionized guitar playing, changed the sound of music and has become a signature instrument for guitarists around the world.

Redefining popular music since its birth in 1951 the Fender precision bass is as relevant now as it was then and continues to be used by contemporary artists around the world.

Features include an ash body, maple neck and fretboard with modern 9.5' radius and medium jumbo frets and vintage Precision Bass split single-coil pickup.
