this is my extremely well used 1977 Fender Telecaster.

I was 14 years old when I first started learning to play, and my parents couldn't afford to pay for lessons, so with some saved up cash I bought an instruction book and learned the basic chords.


Always wanting to play lead guitar, I used to play vinyl records on the record player, and learn to play what the guitarists were playing, note for note, by listening and copying.


My four main influeces were BB King, Chuck Berry, Wilko Johnson and Dave Hill. The latter two I have been privileged enough to meet in person and say thank you for the inspiration that they gave me.


BB King died yesterday, and even though I saw him perform in person, I never got the chance to thank him for his great influence on my playing.


I may yet meet Chuck Berry, who knows??


But if only I'd had the chance to tell BB what a hero he's been to me . . . . . .


The king is dead, long live the king.

• Robert Cray Guitar. Memorial Day weekend. Aptos Park.

• • Fender Telecaster Guitar: Nicknamed "Micawber", after a character in Charles Dickens's novel David Copperfield, it is set up for five-string open-G tuning (-GDGBD), and has only five bridge saddles. The neck pickup has been replaced by a Gibson PAF humbucking pickup, and the bridge pickup has been replaced by a Fender lap steel pickup (similar to a Fender Broadcaster pickup).


• The Fender Telecaster, colloquially known as the Tele (pronounced /ˈtɛli/), is typically a dual-pickup, solid-body electric guitar made by Fender. Its simple yet effective design and revolutionary sound broke ground and set trends in electric guitar manufacturing and popular music. Introduced for national distribution as the Broadcaster in the autumn of 1949, it was the first guitar of its kind to be produced on a substantial scale. Its commercial production can be traced as far back as March 1950, when the single- and dual-pickup Esquire models were first sold.


• The Telecaster has been in continuous production in one form or another since its first incarnation, making it the world's oldest solid-body electric guitar.


• A typical modern-day American Standard Telecaster deviates somewhat from the classic 1950s design. It will usually feature 22 frets (rather than 21) and a bi-flex truss rod that can be adjusted at the headstock end instead of at the body end which, in the original design, required the removal of the neck. The Custom Shop Bajo Sexto Baritone Tele was the only Telecaster ever to feature a two-octave, 24-fret neck. The 3-saddle bridge of the original has since been replaced by a 6-saddle, bent steel version.


• This makes independent length and height adjustment for each string much easier. Longer saddle screws allow for a much wider range of motion. This makes it easier to get the guitar to intonate properly and results in finer tuning accuracy. The original stamped metal bridge plate has long since been replaced but the wiring under the pickguard has remained essentially unchanged for more than 60 years: The 3-way toggle switch selects either the neck pickup only (in the 1st position), the neck and bridge pickups together (middle/2nd position), or the bridge pickup only (3rd position). The first knob adjusts the master volume while the second knob is a master tone control for both pickups.


• During the CBS-ownership era of the 1970s and early 80s, the Telecaster body-style was changed; this to a new "notchless" shape, having a less pronounced notch in the crook where the upper bout meets the neck. This was discontinued in 1982.


• The short-lived "Elite Telecaster" of 1983 incorporated two specially designed humbucking pickups powered by an active circuit featuring a TBX guitar expander and a MDX mid-range booster with 12dB of gain. Other features included a Freeflyte hardtail bridge and die-cast tuning machines with pearloid tips. This guitar was among the last CBS-era Fenders to feature a bi-flex truss rod, low-friction Easy Glider string trees, and active electronics. After CBS sold the Fender division in 1985 to an investment group of employees led by Bill C. Schultz, production of the Elite models ended. Fender Japan made it's own version of the Elite Telecaster in late 1984, featuring a 22-fret neck with medium-jumbo fretwire and a modern 9.5" radius. Notable Elite Telecaster players include Johnny Hallyday and Dave Davies of The Kinks.


• High-end models like the American Deluxe and Plus series Telecasters sometimes come with a contoured body reminiscent of the Stratocaster, for added playing comfort.
