Joe Strummer - Telecaster

Joe's original stock 1966 Fender Telecaster had a three color Sunburst finish on an alder body, white pick guard, and rosewood fingerboard on a maple neck. Other standard features included pearl dot inlays, "two line" Kluson tuning machines, a single "butterfly" string tree, and a bridge fitted with three individual brass saddles.
By the end of 1976, Strummer’s guitar body, including the pick guard, had an extra coating of grey primer and black automobile paint. The word "NOISE" was stenciled in white paint above the pick guard, with a thick white block line under the "E," while three small stripes (the colors of the rasta flag) were added to the base of the horn on the pick guard.

Strummer also added the silver, red and blue "IGNORE ALIEN ORDERS" sticker above and behind the bridge and a white Stratocaster-style pickup selector switch tip
