Graham Coxon Telecaster
The Graham Coxon Telecaster is back in production, featuring the same design as approved by the guitarist that is popularly known for his work with Blur.
Beggars Banquet Telecaster
This surprisingly affordable signature guitar allows fans and players to get close to Coxon's Telecaster tone, as used in both his solo and band works.
This guitar does not stray from traditional Tele design, however it does feature measurements and tonewoods as approved by Graham, including his preferred humbucker on the neck position.
The body of the guitar is made of ash, which is then wrapped by a nice looking blonde polyester finish. The neck is made of maple and is carved into a "C" Shape. It is topped by a rosewood fretboard with a radius of 9.5" and nut width of 1.65".
The guitar comes with the typical Fender scale length of 25.5", with 21 medium jumbo frets and white dot inlays running along the fingerboard surface. The neck is connected to the body via a 4-bolt vintage style joint, featuring vintage style slotted truss rod and heel adjust.
To get the artist approved amplified sound, Fender installed a Seymour Duncan '59 SH-1 Humbucking pickup on the neck position. It is paired with a Vintage-Style Single-Coil Tele pickup on the bridge. The wood and pickup combination used on Graham Coxon Telecaster is said to provide a tone that is slightly brighter than the typical Tele. Basic tone shaping is provided by the guitar's 3-position toggle switch, volume and tone knurled flat-top knobs.
Keeping the strings in place and in tune is a 3-saddle American vintage strings-through-body Telecaster bridge with threaded steel barrel saddles, paired with vintage style tuners. All the hardware are finished in chrome to complete the guitar's elegant look.
The Graham Coxon Telecaster is currently retailing for around $918. You can visit Fender for more information.
