How to buy, maintain and set up your Tele

Haynes Fender Telecaster Manual launched

PRESS RELEASE: The Telecaster marks the true beginning for the 'solid body' electric guitar. This iconic workhorse has survived the rigours of the road for almost 60 years and is still considered by many guitarists to be 'all you really need'.

The Haynes Fender Telecaster Manual is newest addition to a series of best-selling manuals following the Fender Stratocaster and Gibson Les Paul manuals and offers advice on how to get the best from your Telecaster, be it a budget Squier or an original USA-made '57–'59 Esquire.

With step-by-step guidance and clear colour photographs, subjects include upgrading pickups, adjusting a truss rod and understanding some great stage rigs from icons such as Jerry Donahue, Roy Buchanan, Albert Lee and Steve Cropper. There are also 'Tech Tip' contributions from respected luthier John Diggins and B-Bender inventor Gene Parsons. Fourteen case studies examine in detail everything from a Custom Shop Parsons White B-Bender to a James Burton Signature.

There are 'Under the hood' insights into the great Esquire, Broadcaster, Nocaster and Telecaster marques, with nods to the classic 'Blackguards', as well as a vintage '57 Whiteguard Esquire, a Humbucker supercharged 'Hot Rod' and a rare 'lefty' Deluxe. Squiers in '50s Vibe, 'Affinity' and Avril Lavigne models, offer variants on a classic design, with hints on upgrades to a professional working instrument.

Superbly illustrated this manual covers everything a 'Tele' enthusiast needs to know, from the first prototype in 1948 to a 2008 'closet classic'.
