Fender Telecaster stalwart George Fullerton dies
He is said to have been a key influence on the design of the Esquire, which later became known as the Fender Telecaster.
Although the idea for the solid-body Spanish-style electric guitar was Leo Fender's, author and guitar historian Richard Smith told Fender's official website that it was Fullerton's design expertise and craftsmanship that made it a reality.
"I'm fairly convinced, although this has never really been confirmed, that much of the shape of the Telecaster was George's interpretation," the writer said.
That contribution was made in the late 1940s but has had a lasting impression on the music world, as the Fender Telecaster has been used by scores of influential guitarists, including Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Pete Townshend, Bruce Springsteen and Joe Strummer.
