The weapon of choice for Coldplay's talented lead guitarist, Jonny Buckland, used during both the "X&Y" and "Viva La Vida" albums and tours, this iconic guitar is affectionately known as "Blacky". A 1972 Fender Thinline Telecaster finished in gloss black with a white pickguard (before it was hand painted ahead of the "Viva La Vida" album recordings and tour dates), the guitar remained by Buckland's side throughout the studio recordings and live performances for both albums, giving gravitas to tracks such as "Speed of Sound", "Violet Hill" and, of course, "Viva La Vida". An incredible guitar that looks fabulous and plays like a dream.
