OVERVIEW

Join the celebration to honor the guitar that changed popular music forever.

Ancient mythology holds that the fabled Phoenix bird will only land amid the branches of the Empress tree when a good ruler is in power. Lightweight Empress wood has long been used in the Far East for traditional stringed instruments (such as the Japanese koto and Korean gayageum zithers). The tree eventually found its way to the Southeastern United States, from which comes this amazing new super-lightweight Telecaster model.

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 Fender is 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.

    Comments about Fender 60th Anniversary Empress Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I have had this guitar for years and its been my #1 mainly for its warm lipstick and its very lightweight body. Its NOT a traditional Texas twangy guitar, but rather warm and mellow with a more dark tone.
