Fender Artist Model Telecaster with Custom Pickups, Chrome Mirror Pickguard, Vintage-Style 6-Saddle Bridge and Road Worn Hardware in Faded Ice Blue Metallic Road Worn Finish

Telecaster in hand, Chrissie Hynde formed The Pretenders in 1979 and quickly established the band as a rock and roll powerhouse. Chrissie's churning Tele rhythms have been the heartbeat of the band's rugged sound from the very beginning.

Fender Chrissie Hynde Telecaster features an alder body finished in Faded Ice Blue Metallic Road Worn lacquer, a custom mid-'60s 'C'-shaped maple neck with a 7.25" radius fingerboard – exactly matching Chrissie's original, vintage-output Chrissie Hynde Tele pickups – and a chrome mirror pickguard, all matching the unmistakable look and feel of Hynde's treasured '65 model.

  • Alder body in Faded Ice Blue Metallic Road Worn finish
  • Custom Mid-'60s 'C'-shaped maple neck
  • 7.25" radius rosewood fingerboard
  • Custom Chrissie Hynde single-coil pickups
  • Chrome mirror pickguard

A lifetime of stories told through an iconic guitar
There's something to be said about a person who can front a rock outfit that hits No. 1 with their debut album and continued to chart 11 studio albums over the course of the next 40 years. Innately talented, relentlessly uncompromising, inspiringly rebellious: those phrases could all be used to describe the leader of the Pretenders' musical prowess. But perhaps one of the best ways to sum up Hynde is as a storyteller.

Five decades of hits can't be wrong
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 her Fender Telecaster; when catching one of the Pretenders' enthralling live performances 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, Chrissie Hynde Road Worn Telecaster is sure to inspire current creators, both aesthetically and sonically. Visually, its Faded Ice Blue Metallic Road Worn lacquer finish is one of Fender's most eye-catching, and that's not to mention the classy and rare chrome mirror pickguard and Road Worn hardware. Sonically, the Chrissie Hynde Telecaster boasts premium features, including three specially voiced single-coil pickups.
