Fender 60th Anniversary Broadcaster

By November 27, 20112011, New Release
This is where it all began: in 1951

The 60th anniversary of the Fender Telecaster guitar has been celebrated by a unique and unprecedented release of some of their most collectable and historical instruments. This particular guitar is a reproduction of one of the most collectable guitars ever. Probably only 200 were made before the Gretsch company sent a telegram asking Fender to change the name because Gretsch owned the name “Broadkaster.” This is the first time the guitar has been reproduced with the original logo since then.
