About the original James Burton Pink Paisley Telecaster
Fender released a limited run of guitars with a Paisley Finish in July 2012. In the past Fender have released a Pink Paisley version that was made famous by the guitarist with Elvis Presley's backing group in the early 1970's, James Burton. James is probably most well known for playing this guitar. In 1969, James got a call from Fender, telling him they had a guitar that was screaming his name. When he was performing with Elvis, James was a little hesitant to play the Pink Paisley on stage, because he thought that it looked too bright. But he was pushed by Elvis’ “guys” on stage so he did and Elvis loved it. Emmylou Harris would sometimes play one of James’ Telecasters.
