Fender Artist G.E. Smith Telecaster Electric Guitar Review

G.E.Smith- the modern master of the Fender Tele!

As a child during the early 1960s, George Edward “G.E.” Smith got a Telecaster guitar for his birthday one year, and never looked back. Through his six hit-making years with Hall & Oates, his decade-long run as Saturday Night Live bandleader and his touring stints with Bob Dylan, Smith is widely hailed as a modern master of the Telecaster.
The Fender musical instruments has announced a new signature model for its 2007 lineup – the G.E. Smith Signature Telecaster, a special guitar that combines a ’40s-era Fender lap steel with a ’50s-era Telecaster. The Fender Artist G.E. Smith Telecaster Electric Guitar features a pair of American Vintage Tele Single-Coil pickups, with the bridge position sunk right into the wood – in the style of an early Champion lap steel – with other unique features including lap steel “oval and diamond” fingerboard inlays, and the Special Extra Deep “U” Shape maple neck.
