Like its brother, the James Burton Standard Telecaster guitar, the James Burton Telecaster pays homage to the legendary guitarist with some stunning looks to match!

Features include a basswood body with "fiery" finish, U-shaped '60s neck, three special-design James Burton pickups, special five-way Strat-o-Tele switching, gold-plated Fender/Schaller deluxe cast/sealed tuning machines with pearl or black chrome buttons, and gold hardware.

Overview:

An original Telecaster master still going strong, James Burton influenced generations of rock guitar royalty with his perfectly phrased late-'50s/early-'60s Tele work with Ricky Nelson, and his later stints with Elvis Presley, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello and many others only furthered his revered elder-statesman status. His was the first signature Telecaster model, and today's James Burton Telecaster is as fiery as ever, with three pickups, special switching, gold hardware, gorgeous paisley-flame finishes and more.
