the 50's tele is one of the longest-running production models in fender's history and a key factor in the evolution of country, electric blues and rock'n roll. it's great strength is inherent in its classic simplicity and it's efficiency in form and function have made the telecaster one of the most played and heard instruments in musical history. today you would have to pay somewhere around $30k for a 50's tele... that is if you could find one. the good news is, that you don't have to pay 30k for that vintage vibe! if you've reached this page, you've probably already heard about big tex guitars and you know that their vintage replica guitars are played by some of the biggest names in the music industry. big tex is big news! 

billy gibbons purchased the big tex tele dubbed the "beersquire" in 2003. he was quite taken with the vibe and relic work of the guitar. after the purchase, the pickguard was removed and the rev. continued to make a few cosmetic alterations on the guitar to complete the "mojo" factor. it was then premiered at the vh1 awards show later that week. billy has continued to use the "beersquire" nightly on tour, using it on closing numbers and encores. big tex has since been working with mr. gibbons on several "refined" versions of this guitar along with some "outside the box" finishing and relic ideas that will most certainly turn some heads.

here's what bill kirchen has to say about big tex guitars! 


everything good comes from texas - t-bone walker, johnny guitar watson, johnny winter, stevie ray vaughan billy gibbons and big tex guitars!  

the craftsmen at big tex represent a combined 60+ years in the business of repairing, building, collecting and playing vintage instruments and it shows! this 50's blackguard tele is everything we hoped it would be and more! it has the look, the feel and most of all the tone of a treasured original! using using old-school techniques and the finest cuts of wood, the craftsmen at big tex guitars have created a masterpiece in this baby right here! this guitar was custom built for route 66 classic guitars to the exact specs of a 50's blackguard telecaster complete with an ultra thin butterscotch finish. it really does not get any better than this! 


this guitar has a soft "v" shape 9.5" radius maple neck that feels great in your hand. the thickness of the neck measures .870 at the first fret and .970 at the 12th. fully loaded with lollar pups, vintage frets and weighing in at 6 lbs 12.5 oz, this guitar plays and sounds like the hammer of the honky tonk gods! she's super light and super resonate! she's the mojo of the masters, captured and electrified in one simple "plank" of wood!
