Haynes Fender Telecaster Manual – by Paul Balmer – forward Andy Summers


the ultimate tome … Superb! … a must for every Telecaster owner GUITAR BUYER


The Telecaster is the true beginning of the solid electric guitar story. This iconic workhorse has survived the rigours of the road for almost 60 years and is still considered by many guitarists to be ‘all you really need’.



This easy to use manual offers advice on how to get the best from your Tele, be it a budget Chinese Squier of an original USA-made ’57-’59 Esquire.

With step-by-step guidance and clear colour photographs, subjects, include up-grading pickups, adjusting a truss rod and understanding some great stage rigs. There are also some top ‘Tech Tip’ contributions from respected luthier John Diggins and B-Bender inventor Gene Parsons.

14 Case studies examine in detail everything from a Custom Shop Parsons White B-Bender to a Jerry Donahue ‘Signature’ Telecaster.

There are also ‘Under the hood’ insights into the great Esquire, Broadcaster, Nocaster and Telecaster marques, with nods to the classic ‘Blackguards’, as well as vintage ’57 ‘Whiteguard’ Esquire, a Humbucker supercharged ‘Hot Rod’ and a rare ‘lefty’ Deluxe.

Squiers in ‘50s Vibe, ‘Affinity’ and Avril Lavigne models offer a way in to a classic design, with hints on upgrades to a professional working instrument.

The stage set-ups of key Telecaster players such as Jerry Donahue, Roy Buchanan, Albert Lee, Steve Cropper, Andy Summers and the man that got the call from Elvis, James Burton – are examined, including a look at George Harrison’s wonderful Rosewood ‘Let it Be’ Tele.
