In early 1951, Fender renamed its only production solid-body guitar the Telecaster, replacing the short-lived Broadcaster moniker used in late 1950. The Telecaster quickly became the guitar of its age, propelling the status of the solid-body electric guitar from novelty to the defining instrument of popular music. Starting in 1990, Fender began producing a regular production Telecaster in Mexico dubbed the Standard Telecaster. While most Standards are made from Alder or Poplar, some Natural editions use an Ash body.
