To celebrate the recent release of ‘Live at Shea Stadium´, the new limited edition CD by the Clash and the new DVD ‘The Clash Live - Revolution Rock´ - both released on the 6th October 2008 - Yahoo Music, in conjunction with Fender and Sony BMG, are offering you the chance to win a fantastic Fender Joe Strummer Telecaster.

‘The legacy of Joe Strummer (1952-2002) continues to live on, grow louder and shake up the establishment and with the release of the Fender Joe Strummer Telecaster, modelled 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 ‘Revolution Rock´ engraved neckplate and a highly distressed ‘road-worn´ treatment that emulates the worn-to-the-wood layers of gray auto primer and flat black spray paint that Strummer famously used. This guitar will come with a limited edition signed art customization kit with Strummer-inspired stencils, stickers and graphics by designer Shepard Fairey.
