Here we have a Fender Telecaster from about 1954. The earliest models (1952-1954) had a rather brownish colour called butterscotch, while this one is in the later whitish blonde. 

This guitar is strung with 010 strings. A song on which you can hear it is e.g. Prairie Wedding from Sailing to Philadelphia
