Waylon Jennings Guitar Cover



During the 1970s, Jennings joined the Outlaw movement. He released critically acclaimed albums Lonesome, On'ry and Mean and Honky Tonk Heroes, followed by hit albums Dreaming My Dreams and Are You Ready for the Country. In 1976 he released the album Wanted! The Outlaws with Willie Nelson, Tompall Glaser, and Jessi Colter, the first platinum country music album. That success was followed by Ol' Waylon, and the hit song “Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love).” By the early 1980s, Jennings was struggling with a cocaine addiction, which he quit in 1984. Later he joined the country supergroup The Highwaymen with Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and Johnny Cash. During that period, Jennings released the successful album Will the Wolf Survive. He toured less after 1997, to spend more time with his family. Between 1999 and 2001, his appearances were limited by health problems. On February 13, 2002, Jennings died from complications of diabetes.

The 12-year-old Jennings auditioned for a spot on KVOW in Littlefield, Texas. Owner J.B. McShan, along with Emil Macha, recorded Jennings's performance. McShan liked his style and hired him for a weekly 30-minute program. Following this successful introduction, Jennings formed his own band. He asked Macha to play bass for him, and gathered other friends and acquaintances to form "The Texas Longhorns". The style of the band, a mixture of country and western and bluegrass, was often not well received

Jennings also appeared in movies and television series. He was the balladeer for The Dukes of Hazzard; composing and singing the show's theme song. In 2001 he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, which he chose not to attend. In 2007 he was posthumously awarded the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award by the Academy of Country Music. Well, maybe the Waylon Jennings Guitar Cover should get some of the credit. But I think Urban and co-writer Darrell Brown deserve some, too.

 Brown told me that he and Urban were writing in a little studio at the Village Recorder in Santa Moncia, Calif., when Urban pulled Jennings’ guitar from the case. “It was like seeing something in a museum. You see a piece of art and you want to just reach out and touch it,” Brown said. “Keith just knows that every instrument has a song in it and he gets inspired by that. So he started playing it, and the intro started happening, and I said, ‘Do it again.’ It just came out with his fingers on the fretboard of waylon jennings fender telecaster , and we had to follow it. ‘Georgia Woods’ was like a little treasure waiting to be uncovered.”

Here’s a little something you may not know. Keith Urban used Waylon Jennings‘ Fender Telecaster when he was writing a killer new song, “Georgia Woods,” which is on Get Closer, coming out tomorrow (Nov. 16). This fender waylon jennings telecaster guitar is covered in black-and-white hand-tooled leather, which made it come out of the Nashville flood in May pretty much unscathed. (The leather did require a little bit of refurbishing, though, so Urban’s team found the original guy who made that guitar for Jennings and had him handle the repairs.) “It’s like playing a holy grail,” Urban said. “I wanted to use it on some songwriting sessions and the riff that starts the song came straight out of that guitar.”

I became a fan of Waylon Jennings even before I knew exactly who the guy was. 

As a kid in the late 1970s and early 1980s, The Dukes of Hazzard numbered highly among my favorite things to watch on television. At this stage, my musical tastes were just starting to develop, and I was beginning 't exactly preordain me to be a fan of country music, but Waylon's irresistible theto learn what I liked and what I didn't. Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago didnme for that show became one of my first favorite songs. No, I wasn't a little redneck, but damn, I really liked that tune, not to mention his appealingly downhome narration featured in each episode.

Although many critics point to Jennings' mid and late 1970s LPs as his crowning achievements, I've always been partial to his earlier work that was recorded before he started to have crossover success on the pop charts. Not that there's anything wrong with Are You Ready for the Country, Ol' Waylon Jennings Guitar Strap , or I've Always Been Crazy, but his earlier albums have consistently been of greater interest to me. Yeah, I know that a lot of country music experts will tell you that Waylon didn't reach his full potential until he escaped the Nashville system and cast off the heavy-handed influence of producers like Chet Atkins, but I don't care. Even if his pre-Outlaw output is not held in as high esteem, these records will always receive regular rotation on my turntable.

Waylon Telecaster



This Tele is completed and ready to go, just as you see it.I usually offer these on a custom-order basis, but I had this one completed for a while and was using it as a display guitar at a local music store.

The guitar itself is a 2003 Fender Nashville Deluxe Telecaster (Ensenada, Mexico plant). It came factory with the three-pickup set up and is all factory original except for upgraded brass saddles. All the hardware and electronics are USA. In fact, aside from the finish and assembly, it is a USA-made guitar! I thought this was ideal for a real Tele player that wanted a eye-catching, show-stopping, crowd-pleasing Waylon-style Tele!

Of course, the Waylon-style Leather Cover is the featured aspect of the Telecaster. I used Oak Leaf vegetable-tanned leather for all the pieces and the designs are all hand-tooled and hand-painted. I tried to show the detail in the photos as much as possible. The overall appearance is very cool! I also went with an Acanthus floral themed top instead of the more iconic Waylon pattern. I have done many Waylon covers and offer them now on eBay as well, but I also like some diversity and this pattern looks incredible and the colors are very reminiscent of the Waylon guitar, too!
