After some design changes and a name change due to intellectual property concerns, it was re-introduced as the Telecaster. The guitar has been in production ever since. While the ES-150 was an elegant instrument that was relatively expensive to make, the Telecaster was made simply with a slab body and a neck fixed to it with four screws (Fig. 40). Also, the electronics pockets are all cut into the front of the instrument for ease of manufacture and assembly.
