      What can I say? If you love Telecasters, this book is for you. A decent read, beautiful photos, lots of information. It helped me discover a few great tele artists that I didn't know about before, and that's priceless.

    2. James on said:

      Pornography for Telecaster-lovers: lush and luscious photography, frenetic text in bad need of proof-reading, and a cart-load of unappeased desire on every page.It's not the encyclopedia you were hoping for. It's a tease. Try Six Decades of the Fender Telecaster: The Story of the World's First Solidbody Electric Guitar or (more comprehensively) 60 Years of Fender: Six Decades of the Greatest Electric Guitars for more full information and better text.

      Thank you to for this free copy! I was super excited when I received this book! I have played guitar for over 40 years for personal entertainment. I also spent some time working with bands. One of my favorite guitars I have owned was a beautiful Telecaster Thinline, i loved the feel and sound of that guitar! So when I received this book and saw it was a large coffee table book, it felt like Christmas! Great pictures and layout. Guests almost always leaf thru the pages even if they aren't guitar [...]

      Excellent photo book detailing the history of this groundbreaking guitar. Lots of juicy photos/closeups, and the history is painstaking. I enjoyed the separate sections on famous Tele players and learned a lot. Two caveats: it weirdly ends (prematurely) in the mid-70's-- and it sure could have used a proofreader!Nonetheless, this was an inspiring and well-informed book with gorgeous photography.

      Yeah, it's a coffee table book. Not much technical stuff, but good light reading if you're a Telecaster player and/or fan.

      Some history (that cuts off too soon, unfortunately) and some commentary by artists famous for playing Telecasters, but mostly photo after photo of those beautiful Teles.
