Limited Edition Masterbuilt Joe Strummer Telecaster®

Model Number: 9215700025

$34,000.00 RRP

As celebrated front man of The Clash and The Mescaleros, Joe Strummer’s raw, passionate stage presence and socio-political songwriting defined the punk rock movement that kicked off in the late-1970s—all with his now infamous 1966 Telecaster® by his side. To honor his legacy, Fender Custom Shop Senior Masterbuilder Paul Waller meticulously recreated every aspect of Strummer’s cherished instrument for a limited edition run.

The resonant two-piece select alder body, impeccably worn mid-‘60s “C” profile neck and round-laminated rosewood fingerboard, gives players the feeling of holding a road-tested piece of punk rock history, mirroring all the features found on highly sought after 1960s Fender guitars. Finished in Super Heavy Relic® Aged Black over Three-Color Sunburst lacquer—including a matching painted pickguard—all the wear and tear from decades of touring is perfectly recreated on this incredible limited edition. Loaded with a pair of Josefina Campos hand-wound ’67 Telecaster pickups, this guitar exudes all the same raw, expressive tones found throughout both The Clash’s and The Mescaleros’ widely celebrated discographies.

Other premium features include 7.25" (184.1 mm) radius, 21 Jescar Vintage (45085) frets, Modern Tele® wiring, 3-way switch, 6-saddle string-through-body Tele® bridge with steel barrel saddles, Schaller® M6 Mini Tuners, brass nut, wing string tree with tall metal spacer, replica touring case, limited edition Joe Strummer Strap and certificate of authenticity.
