We present an all original 2007 Fender Custom Shop Andy Summers Telecaster Tribute (Masterbuilt by Stephen Stern)
Only 250 instruments were made in a Limited Edition run of the Fender Custom Shop Andy Summers Tribute Telecaster. It’s totally a perfect and great replica of the 60’s Telecaster that Summers used to help propel The Police to untold heights of worldwide pop superstardom.
This masterbuilt features the ferocious humbucker neck pickup and single coil bridge pickup mounted in the body rather than in a brass bridge plat. It features the control plate-mounted mini-toggle phase switch; body-mounted preamp on/off mini-toggle switch (Fender Custom Shop has recreated The Police -era preamp)
The rear-mounted overdrive unit controlled by a third knob below the two traditional Telecaster volume and tone controls; “soft” brass bridge pieces and Schaller® tuners.
The guitar features the exact same “eccentric” modifications that the original had when Summers first bought it. Most of which were unchanged throughout the nonstop work and excitement of The Police years.
Andy Summers played number one of the 250 replicas when The Police once again rocked the music world by reuniting on February 2007, to open the 49th annual Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Even more exciting, Summers will play the replica during the momentous 2007 30th anniversary worldwide Police reunion tour, one of the most hoped for and eagerly awaited events in pop music history. It promises to be a thrilling musical event featuring one of rock’s most innovative guitarists playing a spot–on replica of one of rock’s most distinctive guitars.
It even comes complete with its original flight case, all case candy and Fender Custom Shop COA.
