Brad Paisley has joined the Fender artist signature series, which features his own Road Worn Telecaster guitar created with the brand.
Fender has partnered with country music icon, Brad Paisley, for his artist signature guitar dubbed the Brad Paisley Road Worn Telecaster. The pair have created a classic piece, with the collaboration scheduled to be officially revealed at Summer NAMM 2017 in Nashville.
The instrument reflects his shared mission with the brand—to inspire the next generation of players. The body features a lightweight and resonant paulownia core with spruce top and back, while a ‘64 Tele Bridge Pickup expands the sonic palette with enough tumble energy.
Paisley chose an enhanced V-neck shape for a comfortable grip. The medium jumbo frets are ideal for quick picking and over-the-neck bluesy bends. Meanwhile, a Road Worn silver sparkle finish, aged hardware, and paisley pick-guard render the variant a formidable choice.
“Not only is it a beautiful guitar, but it has unique features we developed with Brad. We amalgamated those from several of his favourite guitars for a truly compelling instrument we hope empowers players,” said Justin Norvell, Senior Vice President at Fender Products.
