Fender announce the latest Tele-bration model – the Old Pine Telecaster crafted from over 100 year old pine 05-Aug-11
Here's what Fender has to say about their newly-announced Old Pine Telecaster:
On its 1951 introduction, the Telecaster was a revolutionary instrument that would usher in whole new eras of musical innovation and excitement. Sixty years later, in 2011, it is an archetypal electric guitar with a long and storied history. The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster, and we're celebrating its 60th anniversary all year with 12 very special "Tele-bration" models that stay inside the Telecaster's famously elegant lines while offering the finest and most unusual takes on the instrument's past, present and future.
This highly distinctive Telecaster is hewn from salvaged pine that was more than a century old. This amazing instrument is further distinguished by a hand-rubbed "Whitewash" oil finish.
