One for the die-hard Clash fan – the Fender Joe Strummer Signature Telecaster.
Yes, not just any Fender Telecaster, this a beat-up Telecaster, based on the one Strummer strummed throughout his musical career. It’s crafted from alder with a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, but for authenticity has a ‘road worn’ finish, with both the wood and metal bits and pieces undergoing an ‘artificial distressing’ process. A finishing touch is an engraved neck plate that says ‘Revolution Rock’.
According to Fender, the look of the guitar is based on Strummer’s attitude to the guitar – ‘how it sounds’ rather than ‘how it looks’. Ironic, bearing inm ind how much effort they’ve put into the look of this limited edition! Yours for £699.
