Fender releases the Joe Strummer Telecaster®
The legacy of Joe Strummer (1952-2002) continues to live on, grow louder and shake up the establishment with the release of the Joe Strummer Telecaster, modeled after some of the beat up and battle-hardened Telecaster guitars (especially his famous '66 model) he wielded as leader of “the only band that matters”—seminal Brit punk commando unit The Clash.
Designed in cooperation with the Strummer estate, the guitar has a highly distressed “road-worn” treatment that emulates the worn-to-the-wood layers of gray auto primer and flat black spray paint he made famous. It also features a “Revolution Rock” engraved neckplate and a limited edition art customization kit that includes Strummer-inspired stencils, stickers and graphics by designer Shepard Fairey.
This is a faithful reproduction of the Telecaster guitar that Joe Strummer used since his Clash days up until his untimely death. It definitely looks and sounds authentic - Joe Strummer will certainly continue to inspire new generations of punk rock fans...
