60 YEARS OF THE FENDER TELECASTER 1951 - 2011
In late 1949 Fender had released the Esquire, a single pickup guitar. As the esquire developed it became known as the Broadcaster and featured the now standard double pick up configuration.
As Fender started to advertise their new model they received a telegram (below) from Gretsch Guitars claiming rights to the name Broadcaster. (interestingly Fender now own Gretsch Guitars).
After a few months when the Guitar bore only the Fender logo (guitars from this period are nowadays known as the Nocaster), the name Telecaster was born and the rest as they say is history.
