Why Every Guitar Player Needs a Strat or a Tele
Every serious musician & collector understands the importance of having the right instruments in their stable. When it comes to guitars, few are as iconic or versatile as Fenders original lineup. Whether you are just getting into the vintage game or a seasoned pro, investing in a Fender is a wise choice.
In this post, we will discuss some of the key reasons why every guitar player/collector should have at least one Fender Tele and Strat in their arsenal.
1. Heritage and Quality:
The Telecaster is the electric guitar that started it all! Being the first electric guitar to be "mass produced" in 1950, the Telecasters simple yet highly effective design has remained virtually unchanged to this day. The "Tele" has been and remains a go to instrument for guitarists of all genres.
The Stratocaster was originally produced in 1954 and has since become a staple in the world of music. Unlike the Tele the Stratocaster is known for its sleek, contoured body, as well as its own signature sound which helped define rock n roll.
As a guitar player or collector, owning a piece of history can be a huge source of pride, inspiration and motivation.
