An Homage to Fender – GEORGE FULLERTON’S 1951 TELECASTER & LEO FENDER’S BENCH AMP

These are the things that give us chills, and rightfully so. Today we have a 1951 Fender Telecaster to share with you all… yes, 1951. This one was previously owned by George Fullerton, and even has his signature on the back of the guitar! Each piece inside has been signed off by the man himself, and it is in immaculate and completely original condition. One for the history books, really! Since we had such an amazing piece of Fender history available to put on video, we called up our dear friend Chris Jansen who graciously made the 3hr journey to the shop to bring down his grandpa’s old 1946 Model 26 “Woody” that lived on Leo Fender’s workbench for many years prior to Chris’s grandpa taking ownership – for a pairing that may very well be the coolest setup that we will ever have within our walls. This is purely for your enjoyment, as the guitar is already spoken for and you’d have to pry the Woody amp out of Chris’s cold dead hands – but we got our extremely talented friend Skyler Mehal to plug these babies in and give ya’ll a taste of what it sounds like!
