Telecaster FAQs

What's the difference between '50s, '60s and '70s Telecasters?

Fender and Squier offer many variations on classic designs, but the general differences between '50s, '60s and '70s Teles are:

  • '50s - Thick U neck profile, ash bodies, 3-saddle ashtray bridge
  • '60s - Slimmer C neck profile, alder bodies, rosewood fretboards, hotter pickups
  • '70s - Slimmer C neck profile, ash bodies, chunky headstock, deluxe Tele scratchplate

Was the Telecaster the first electric guitar?

The first solid-body electric guitar to enter production was the Fender Esquire, a precursor to the Telecaster. It had a similar design but with a single pickup in the bridge position. Fender and Squier still occasionally produce versions of the Esquire.

What's the difference between Fender and Squier Telecasters?

Squier make great affordable/beginner-friendly guitars based on genuine Fender designs, including the Telecaster. The company is owned by Fender, and they use different materials and components, and manufacture overseas - this makes them more affordable.

What's the difference between a Telecaster and a Stratocaster?

Apart from their differing designs, the main difference between Tele & Strat is the sound. This is mostly due to different pickups and electronics. A Tele usually has 2 single-coil pickups, a 3-way switch and a single tone control, while a Strat usually has 3 single-coil pickups and a 5-way selector with 2 tone controls. Because of this, Stratocasters offer a broad range of sounds, from bright to spanky, while Telecasters are known for their punchy, twangy tones.
