Telecaster in hand, Chrissie Hynde formed The Pretenders in 1979 and quickly established the band as a rock and roll powerhouse. Chrissie’s churning Tele rhythms have been the heartbeat of the band’s rugged sound from the very beginning.
The Chrissie Hynde Telecaster features an alder body finished in Faded Ice Blue Metallic Road Worn® lacquer, a custom mid-‘60s “C”-shaped maple neck with a 7.25” radius fingerboard – exactly matching Chrissie’s original, vintageoutput Chrissie Hynde Tele pickups and a chrome mirror pickguard—all matching the unmistakable look and feel of Hynde’s treasured ’65 model.
Ben’s modified ‘70s Fender Mustangs have been his preferred touring choice for years. The Ben Gibbard Mustang recreates his modified touring workhorses and adds some bold new enhancements. Featuring a chambered ash body design for increased resonance and reduced weight and a one-piece 22-fret modern “C”-shaped maple neck with 9.5” radius fingerboard and medium jumbo frets, this guitar is a comfortable and versatile stage performer.
The Jason Isbell Custom Telecaster is visually striking – the Chocolate Sunburst pops against the cream double-binding of the ‘59-style Telecaster Custom body while Fender’s Road Worn® aging process gives it the look and feel of a well-used instrument. The vintage inspired mid-’60s “C”-shaped maple neck and 21-fret rosewood fingerboard combines with the sparkling, fiery tones of the custom Jason Isbell Telecaster Pickups and the chicken-pickin’ playability of the modified bridge to create a guitar that sounds and plays as a good as it looks.
Designed in conjunction with the Strummer estate, the Joe Strummer Campfire pays homage to the Clash’s articulate and fiery co-founder, lyricist, rhythm guitarist and lead singer. All his life, he vigorously championed individuality, self-expression and change, and firmly believed in the power of community. Inspired by the legendary campfires that Strummer held backstage at the Glastonbury festival, this small-body acoustic-electric is the perfect companion for gatherings of any size. Featuring a solid spruce top with mahogany back and sides, the Campfire reflects Strummer’s aesthetic with its matte black finish, nickel hardware, and star inlays.
Dhani Harrison has an extremely diverse and successful music career. Despite being a multi-instrumentalist and spending as much time on-stage as he does in the studio scoring movies and tv shows, he has always been drawn towards the ukulele. His start with the instrument began early in his childhood and he has continued to use it well into his professional career. Spending as much time as he does with the instrument it was only natural to have the want for a cosmetically and functionally unique ukulele made for him.
