About Fender Telecaster Black

Fender is an American manufacturer of "stringed instruments" and amplifiers - though they are most famous for their guitars, specifically the Stratocaster and the Telecaster. The Telecaster was the world's first first solid body, single cutaway electric guitar. A Telecaster is typically configured for dual pick up. It was originally developed by Leo Fender in California in 1950. Before this, several people - both craftsmen and companies - had experimented with solid body electric guitars, but none of them were successful. The guitars were originally called "Broadcaster" but after a trademarking altercation with the Gretsch company, who manufactured the Broadkaster line of drums and banjos, Fender changed the name to Telecaster - and rock n roll history was made. The Telecaster is known for its ability to produce a contrast of sounds. It is capable of both a bright, rich and cutting tone or a warmer, mellow, bluesy tone depending on the selected pickup - either bridge or neck. The Telecaster has a very versatile design in this respect, which is perhaps what has served to make it so popular. As well as the two pickups, there is a capacitor between the slider of the volume control and the output, which allows treble sounds to bleed through, whilst simultaneously dampening mid and lower ranges. The Telecaster's slanted bridge enhances its treble tone and the solid body allows a clean amplified version of the tone from the strings. Previous hollow bodied electric guitars were often prone to feedback. The extra versatility has meant the guitar is able to mimic the sound of a steel guitar. It is popular for all types of music, including country, rock, jazz and blues.
