Example text

A guitar that has now become iconic was introduced by Fender in 1949 as the Broadcaster. 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.

Note that the inlay also covers the end of the fretboard. While many, probably most, luthiers are still self-taught, there are a number of formal training programs in the United States and Europe. It is common for individual luthiers to start work after formal training and to support themselves with a combination of building and repairs.

This seems to suggest that Torres viewed soundboard bracing as a means of tailoring the sound of the instrument rather than a structural element necessary for bearing the load from the strings. 17 shows the restored instrument. There are many slight variations on fan bracing, so it’s impossible to point to one example as being the standard. 18 shows a seven brace pattern from an instrument made in 1930 by Hermann Hauser. The seven braces are arranged in a fan pattern with the center brace on the joint between the two halves of the soundboard.
