Incredible Guitar this, super light at 6lb on the button. If there's a 6lb club, this gives you Grandmaster status, and if you swapped out the metal tone and volume knobs for plastic ones, you might even get entry level privileges in the 5lb club.

Well balanced too, plays beautifully and ever so naturally resonant.
A very special, full fat American Tele, and it's been mollycoddled since new with no fret wear and only a couple of marks commensurate with use.

Limited Edition, Only 500 of these worldwide.



Ancient mythology holds that the fabled Phoenix bird will only land amid the branches of the Empress tree when a good ruler is in power. Lightweight Empress wood has long been used in the Far East for traditional stringed instruments (such as the Japanese koto and Korean gayageum zithers). The tree eventually found its way to the Southeastern United States, from which comes this amazing new super-lightweight Telecaster model.

On its 1951 introduction, the Telecaster was a revolutionary instrument that would usher in whole new eras of musical innovation and excitement. Sixty years later, in 2011, it is an archetypal electric guitar with a long and storied history. The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster, and we're celebrating its 60th anniversary all year with 12 very special "Tele-bration" models that stay inside the Telecaster's famously elegant lines while offering the finest and most unusual takes on the instrument's past, present and future.
