This new version of Tony Bacon's Six Decades of the Fender Telecaster shows how the world's first commercially successful solidbody electric guitar still attracts musicians more than 60 years since its birth in California. Today, it is more popular than ever and for many guitarists has overtaken the Stratocaster as the Fender to own and play. The Tele is the longest-lived solidbody electric, played by everyone from Muddy Waters to Keith Richards, from Radiohead to Snow Patrol. Its sheer simplicity and versatility are vividly illustrated here through interviews with Jeff Beck, James Burton, Bill Kirchen, John 5, and more. The book is three great volumes in one: a compendium of luscious pictures of the most desirable Teles, a gripping story from the earliest days to the latest exploits, and a detailed collector's guide to every Tele ever made. Packed with pictures of great players, collectable catalogs, period press ads, and cool memorabilia, The Telecaster Guitar Book is the one Tele book that all guitar fans will want to add to their collection.

Comments about Hal Leonard The Telecaster Guitar Book - A Complete History Of Fender Telecaster Guitars:
This book is a rewrite of Tony Bacon's original book "Six Decades of the Fender Telecaster" back in 2005. It not only repeats verbatim his writing from the aforementioned but also the photos exactly! It's basically an update of Telecaster models into 2012 and a dissertation on the artist "John5" and his love of the telecaster; it also goes into some additional issued artists models as pertains to the heavy metal. All in all, a very, very disappointing purchase. They got me with a new book cover for starters. If you don't have the 2005 edition, this would be an all around excellent book on the Fender Telecaster.
