And one of the mainstays throughout Hynde’s artistic career, which has also seen her write a critically acclaimed memoir and gain a passionate following as a painter, has always been a Fender Telecaster. When catching one of the Pretenders’ enthralling live performances, from the band’s initial shows to now, it’s actually rare to see Hynde without a Tele in her hand.
As such, Fender is honoring Hynde with a namesake model of her own, paying homage to what might be her most-favorite guitar - a '65 Telecaster that has become synonymous with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.
A SIX-STRINGED REBEL SURE TO INSPIRE
Just like Hynde’s trend-setting fashion sense, the Chrissie Hynde Road Worn Telecaster is sure to inspire current creators, both aesthetically and sonically.
