Car Seat Headrest’s Will Toledo

Here is the guitarist, songwriter, and frontman of the formerly one-man band turned four-piece, Car Seat Headrest, who relies on this MIM Fender Telecaster for most of the band’s midday set. He spoke with PG in 2016 and here’s what he had to say about it: “The Telecaster was a gift … I’ve never had much of a taste for big, heavy guitars because they weigh down my neck. The Tele is a lot more solid in that respect, and I do like it for that reason.”

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
