Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first hands-on how-to manual devoted to the Telecaster. This guidebook shows owners and dreamers the basics of selecting and buying Telecasters. It covers maintenance and repairs such as tuning, setting intonation, tremolo alignment, fret repairs, bridge and nut adjustments, electrics troubleshooting; spur-of-the-moment stageside fixes; and some basic performance enhancements like adding "hot rod" aftermarket pickups.

Book News Annotation:

This is a heavily-illustrated handbook giving instruction on the repair, maintenance, and modification of the Fender Telecaster, the solid-bodied electric guitar that is widely used in country, blues, funk, rock and roll, and other forms of popular music. In addition to the how-to advice, the volume also profiles a handful of unique telecasters, as well as a number of famous telecaster players, including Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders; Steve Cropper of Booker T. and the MGs (the house band for many of the classic Stax soul recordings of the 1960s), Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, and Andy Summers of The Police (who also provides the foreword).
