From Hendrix’s Woodstock Strat to Kurt Cobain’s Jaguar, the EMP Museum houses some of the most iconic and rare vintage guitars in the world.
1953 Fender Telecaster
An early example of one of the most recognizable and popular guitars ever conceived, the Fender Telecaster has been consistently in production in various forms for the last 60 years. This guitar was innovative with its single-cutaway design, bolt-on neck, adjustable saddle bridge, and unique dual single-coil pickups prized for their twang and versatility. This was truly a working musician's guitar and has remained so ever since.
