The Fender Joe Strummer Telecaster recreates the punk icon’s favorite instrument in exacting detail, complete with a Road Worn® lacquer finish and pair of custom-voiced ‘60s Telecaster pickups for Strummer’s searing, straight-ahead tone.
As frontman and main songwriter of the legendary punk band, The Clash, Joe Strummer created a fiery, passion-filled brand of up-tempo punk-rock that catapulted the band into rock and roll history. Strummer’s rebellious musical sensibilities injected the band’s songs with the lightning-in-a-bottle political urgency of the era. Originally outfitted with a 3-Color Sunburst finish, the Black overspray is authentically relic’d to bring it back to its roots.
True to Strummer's mid-’60s original, access classic Tele twang with the growl that made The Clash songs so iconic. A pair of custom Joe Strummer Tele pickups help nail the sounds of the Clash. A master volume, master tone, and a 3-way pickup switch cover the electronic controls.
Widely known as one of the most comfortable neck profiles, easily navigate this era-correct, Mid 60s neck to break out your most explosive punk riffs. A slab rosewood fingerboard with 7.25" fingerboard radius are authentic to the real guitar.
Other features include a vintage-style 6-saddle Telecaster® bridge, era-correct 3-ply parchment pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines and a custom neck plate, all featuring Fender’s Road Worn® finish to complete the look.
