This Fender guitar is a prototype Telecaster made somewhere in between 1948-1951, Before we knew them as Telecasters (later name).
The first models were called Broadcasters and Nocasters and then changed name to the Telecaster and Esquire (depending on pickup configuration)
We shot these pictures in NYC in November 2010. When Dan, from Chelsea Guitars, opened the case - all I could see was a red telecaster model in a newer case. I really didn´t think much of it in those few seconds until Dan started to reveil this amazing story.
