In the 1950s, the electric guitar took the world by storm and changed popular music forever. The electric guitar made it possible for new genres that could never have existed before.
The first of which was surely rock 'n' roll; a genre of music that gave a voice to a new generation and gave liberation to a world that needed freedom.
The Telecaster, which was originally introduced to the world as the Fender Broadcaster, was one of the first electric guitars to see popular worldwide use and is synonymous with rock 'n' roll but is used in all genres of music with its twangy tone perfect for country while heavier players such as Tom Morello even use the Fender Telecaster in straight-up rock music.
With guitarists as diverse as Keith Richards, Jeff Buckley, Jonny Greenwood and Brad Paisley all regularly performing with the Fender Telecaster, you have a good idea of just how versatile this workhorse guitar is.
More recently, Squier's Telecaster Guitars offer the same iconic style and twang as their Fender counterparts, available to beginners and entry-level players as a more affordable electric guitar option. With Fender's approval on manufacturing and quality control from factory to shipping, Squier Telecasters deliver unbeatable value.
Another hugely popular model of electric guitars is the Stratocaster. The guitar of choice for legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and more, this three single-coil equipped electric guitar is similarly versatile and a great guitar for a variety of genres and styles.
As the years went on, electric guitars continued to evolve. Fender has made several other guitar models available such as the Fender Jazzmaster, the Fender Jaguar and the Fender Mustang, which have all become incredibly popular in their own right and finding their niche offering an alternative style and performance.
Once again, Squier Stratocaster Guitars offer the same raw, in-your-face tone as their Fender counterparts, available to beginners and entry-level players as a more affordable electric guitar option.
Les Paul Guitars
Another legendary guitar to make its debut in the 1950s is the Les Paul. Equipped with two humbucking pickups, the Les Paul offered a bigger sound while dual-coil style pickup offered a distinct sound that eliminated hum.
Commonly associated with rock music, the Gibson Les Paul is an icon and possibly as recognised as the legends that wield it. With influential players such as Jimmy Page, Slash, Joe Perry and more, all favouring the Les Paul, that's quite the testimony to this guitar's hard rock credentials.
Originally designed as a double-cutaway version of the Les Paul, the Gibson SG gave rockers another solidbody axe for their arsenal.
Also equipped with a dual humbucker pickup configuration, the Gibson SG is famously used by such hard rockers as Angus Young of AC/DC, Black Sabbath's Toni Iommi and others.
