The fender telecaster

The fender telecaster. One of the most popular guitars in the history of the instrument. But why? Sure it was the first mass produced guitar ever but surely it should of fadaed into the background when other companies started making guitars. It was designed to be mass produced and Fender cut corners on design and electronics. It was a start. sos i for one am baffled that it is still so popular today. It's legendary for it's twang but surely if you want twang you buy a grestch! I know gretsch's have humbuckers but what about the hi-lotron pickups gretsch intriduced in the sixties? The fender telecaster is still viewed as the ultimate workhorse guitar today but why? many other guitars do this and more for the same price as a U.S.A. tele. I it because the Tele is available at any price point? in my mind no. It's because us guitarists are creatures of habit, we don't like anything new and the tele suits that idea perfectly
