Check out this six-minute promo for Bob Hewitt’s newest documentary — Leo Fender’s Telecaster® – The Original Twang. (Order the double disc DVD here.) The promo below includes interviews with dozens of guitarists including James Burton, G.E. Smith, Deborah Coleman, Wilko Johnson, Keith Richards, Jeff Beck, John 5, Sue Foley, Richie Kotzen, Steve Cropper, Redd Volkaret, Albert Lee and others.
As Lee says about the Telecaster in the documentary, “It just ended up being something far more than it was designed to be.”
And with that, we’d like to make note of all that Leo Fender has done to change music. It all started on this day in 1909 with his birth and as evidenced by this video, his legacy lives on.
