How to Get the Classic Fender Telecaster Tone

For our second installment of the Tone Profile series, we're taking a look at the Fender Telecaster. Cooper Greenberg is playing the Limited Edition Daybreak Telecaster, made in Japan, demonstrating the quintessential tones of each selection on the three-way toggle switch. The Telecaster is a simple, yet versatile instrument has been used all over blues, rock, country, jazz, and indie records since it’s introduction in the 1950’s. Players like Andy Summers, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, James Burton, and Jonny Greenwood have all made their mark playing this classic Fender, but it’s always welcoming to new players. In this video, Cooper is playing the Telecaster through a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe tube amp with a Mogami cable.
