When you take the stage with Fender's Black Paisley Telecaster, you. This axe has a fascinating backstory. Fresh from the Summer of Love, Fender got to work on what were to become icons of the flower power era. Launched the following year (1968), Fender's Paisley Red and Blue Flower Telecasters were based on standard production maple-fingerboard Teles and were meant to capitalize on the quickly-commercialized psychedelic craze that was sweeping the globe (You may have have already noted - perhaps with a shred of cynicism - that Fender at the time was firmly in the corporate clutches of CBS).
These colorful guitars, interestingly, didn't catch on with their intended rock customers. Ironically, one of the most high profile guitarists to adopt the Paisley Tele was country session great James Burton, who played his'69 model until his signature Fender model was introduced in 1990. The Black Paisley Telecaster - underneath its cool psychedelic/stealth exterior - is a Standard Series Tele, for which Fender has designed a new bridge block that's the best of the vintage and modern designs.It features six adjustable saddles, and a strings-through-body design that seriously juices your sustain. Another historical note: vintage Teles - including the psychedelic ones of the late'60s - came with a large "ashtray" bridge cover that got no love from guitarists.
Most (if not all) players promptly removed it, and when Fender (or should we say CBS) finally got wind of this trend, they dispensed with Tele bridge covers for good. The original Tele pickups had more twang than any two "normal" guitars, thanks to the single coil pickups in the bridge and neck positions and the strings-through-body Tele bridge. Today's Standard Tele sports pickups that pretty much look the same, but are voiced hotter, so it's much easier to drive most amps into various levels of distortion, from mild to manic. So, tonally, you get the best of both worlds: this Tele's a total twang beast.Factor in the wicked-cool finish, and the Fender Black Paisley Telecaster becomes a gotta-have for Tele fanatics.
