The Waylon Jennings Collection includes a Fender Custom Shop (FCS) Telecaster that’s a faithful reproduction of his leather-clad 1954 Telecaster.
Waylon Jennings helped pioneered the ‘outlaw country’ scene that burgeoned from the USA in the 70s and 80s, made up of a small group of artists pushing the envelope of what was accepted as ‘country music’ that had been defined by some bigger name Nashville producers.

Often with a Tele as his weapon of choice, Waylon Jennings brought new life to the scene, bringing us songs like “Mamma’s Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up Be Cowboys” (with heavy use of a phaser) as well as theme for Dukes of Hazzard.
The Waylon Jennings Collection includes a Fender Custom Shop (FCS) Telecaster that’s a faithful reproduction of his leather-clad 1954 Telecaster. With permission to deconstruct the guitar to make a more accurate reproduction, FCS Masterbuilder Dave Brown took to the project. Waylon’s son, Shooter Jennings, said:
“This collection means so much to my father’s legacy. You would never find him without his Telecaster, and this Custom collection is a beautiful way to continue honouring him. The Fender Custom Shop model is spot on, and it’s amazing to think that players will be able to honour my dad by playing on a replica that’s so identical to his.”
The collection is bolstered by a Waylon Jennings Phaser Pedal, case, strap and Waylon Jennings Pickguards, embossed leather in a stylish tooled leather pattern.
