Rated 3.89/5 based on 548 customer reviews

If you are looking to buy or sell your Telecaster then the date is vital, this helps provide a provenance or authentic record for the guitar in question and that is one of the key factors which dictates its value.

Even if you are not planning to sell your guitar knowing a bit about when it was made is a fun thing to do, from there you can read about the history of the company and work out just where your guitar fits into the story.In 1937 Gretsch had trademarked the name "Broad Kaster" for a line of drums and after advertising the Broadcaster in music trade papers in February 1951, Gretsch took notice and sent Fender a telegram asking them to change their name.Therefore Fender was forced to drop the name Broadcaster.Contoured ash body, two-color (yellow to brown) sunburst finish.Thin "spaghetti" peghead decal logo, no patent numbers.
