GUITAR TYPES

“Our imagination is the only limit to what we can hope to have in the future” Charles F Kettering

Fender Telecaster

The Fender Telecaster, colloquially know as the Tele, is the world’s first commercially successful solid-body electric guitar. Its simple yet effective design and revolutionary sound broke ground and set trends in electric guitar manufacturing and popular music.

The Telecaster is a versatile guitar, usable for most types of music and has been used in many genres, including country, reggae, rock, pop, folk, soul, rhythm and blues, blues, jazz, punk and heavy metal

The Telecaster is know for its ability to produce both a bright, rich cutting tone (the typical country twang) and a mellow, warm, bluesy jazz tone depending on the selected pickup.

The solid body allows the guitar to deliver a clear and sustaining amplified version of the strings’ sound.

Fender Stratocaster

The Fender Stratocaster is a model of electric guitar designed in 1954. It is a double-cutaway guitar, with an extended top “horn” shape for balance.

The Stratocaster is a versatile guitar, usable for most styles of music and has been used in many genres, including country, reggae, rock, pop, folk, soul, rhythm and blues, blues, jazz, punk and heavy metal.

The Fender Stratocaster was the first guitar to feature three pickups and a spring tension vibrato system, as well as being the first Fender with a contoured body. The Stratocaster’s sleek contoured body shape differed from the flat, slab-like design of the Telecaster, The Stratocaster’s double cutaways allowed players easier access to higher positions on the neck.

Gibson Les Paul

The Gibson Les Paul is a solid body electric guitar first sold in 1952. Its design typically comprises a solid mahogany body with a carved maple top and a single cutaway, a mahogany set-in neck with a rosewood fretboard, two pickups with independent volume controls, and a stoptail bridge, although variants exist.

Along with Fender’s Telecaster and Stratocaster, it was one of the first mass-produced electric solid body guitars. Due to their versatility, Les Paul electric guitars have been used in a wide range of music genres, including rock, country, pop, soul, rhythm and blues, blues, jazz, reggae, punk and heavy metal
