We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The Telecaster is another one of Leo Fender's ideas for a two pickup, solid body basic guitar. Fender's long time partner, Doc Kaufmann built the first one which was later improved by Freddie Tavarez the same guy who designed the Stratocaster.
The Tele (as us Fender players call 'em) originally wasn't called the Telecaster - in fact, it wasn't called anything, but it was eventually marketed as the Esquire, then the Broadcaster then the Telecaster. The original Tele's are now called "No-caster" and are worth a small fortune in original condition. I know somebody who owns one.
It has a classsic country sound and you can hear that in this video, but it is an extremely versatile guitar in terms of sound quality and an absolute joy to play.
