Andy Summers: "...this guitar sparks something in me and I have to have it."
Fender couldn't be more proud and excited to unveil a very special 250-instrument Limited Edition run of the Fender Custom Shop Andy Summers Tribute Telecaster ® tuners. It's a note-perfect replica of the 1961 Tele® that Summers used to help propel the Police to untold heights of worldwide pop superstardom.
Featuring the ferocious humbucking neck pickup and single coil bridge pickup mounted in the body rather than in the broken brass (not chrome) bridge plate; a control plate-mounted mini-toggle phase switch; body-mounted preamp on/off mini-toggle switch (the Custom Shop has recreated the Police-era preamp); the rear-mounted overdrive unit controlled by a third knob below the two traditional Telecaster volume and tone controls; "soft" brass bridge pieces and Schaller® tuners.
The prototype, built by Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Dennis Galuszka over the course of a year, is currently in use with Andy now. The guitar features the same "eccentric" modifications that the original had when Summers first bought it, most of which were unchanged throughout the nonstop work and excitement of the Police years.
Summers played number one of the 250 replicas when the Police once again electrified the music world by reuniting on Feb. 11, 2007, to open the 49th annual Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Even more exciting, Summers will play the replica during the momentous 2007 30th anniversary worldwide Police reunion tour, one of the most hoped for and eagerly awaited events in pop music history. It promises to be a thrilling musical event featuring one of rock's most innovative guitarists playing a spot on replica of one of rock's most distinctive guitars.
Hit after hit was recorded and performed on it - "Roxanne," "So Lonely," "Walking On the Moon," the breathtaking "Message In a Bottle," "Don't Stand So Close to Me," "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic," "Every Breath You Take," "Wrapped Around Your Finger," "Synchronicity II" and "King of Pain." Every nick, scratch, dent and wear mark on Andy's guitar has been painstakingly recreated on this amazing tribute Telecaster. For Police fans, collectors, and '80s tribute bands, you just can't get much better than the Andy Summers tribute guitar.
