Fender to Give Away Custom Coldplay Telecaster Guitar
November 17, 2011
In celebration of Coldplay’s recently released album Mylo Xyloto
, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, Fender is proud to announce the “Coldplay Guitar Giveaway.”
As part of the contest, one lucky contestant will win a Fender American Vintage series ’72 Telecaster Thinline guitar swathed in a vivid Mylo Xyloto-themed custom graphic finish by noted graffiti artist Paris. Fender ’72 Tele Thinline guitars have long been one of the favorites of Coldplay guitarist Jonny Buckland.
Paris is an English artist who has worked closely with Coldplay throughout 2011. Paris informed and inspired much of the cover artwork for their fifth studio album, Mylo Xyloto, in collaboration with the band and designers Tappin Gofton. He has since decorated many of the band’s instruments and stage sets for their 2011 festival tour, working closely with art director and set designer Misty Buckley.
