Fender Reveals Rolling Stones Inspired Tele

Posted 25 Oct 2013 in Artist News, Electric Guitar, Gear News

Back in the tender year of 1968, one of the biggest rock bands of all time released their ninth studio album, titled Beggars Banquet. Despite tensions between Keith Richards and Brian Jones over Jones drug habits and negative rehearsal attitude, the Rolling Stones managed to create a masterpiece with Beggars Banquet. The album would go on to become quite influential and for many was the peak of the Rolling Stones’ career.

In an effort to celebrate this musical monument, the guitar wizards over at Fender have partnered up with ABKCO Music to distribute a Beggars Banquet themed Telecaster. However, only 300 copies of this guitar will be produced, but each of those will also come with the clear vinyl rerelease of Beggars Banquet, a box with art rumored to have been designed by Richards and Jagger, a traveling case, and a Fender wall mount (because why not). The guitar itself features the famously “banned” bathroom wall design that was originally supposed to be the cover art of the album, but the record label deemed it too offensive and chose a different image. The package is being issued in honor of the rerelease of Beggars Banquet, which will celebrate it’s 45 anniversary on December 9th of this year.
