The Telecaster guitars illustrated on this Panorama Print are, from left to right: Joe Strummer acquired his 1966 three-tone sunburst Telecaster in 1975 & it remained his main guitar throughout his career. After joining the Clash the body & pickguard were refinished with a coat of grey primer & a black top coat in a car spray shop.
