Chris Martin’s custom-painted Fender Telecaster Deluxe played by the singer-songwriter on Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto tour during performances of the song “God Put a Smile Upon Your Face.”

The Mexican-made Tele is composed of an alder body and maple neck with maple fretboard, and is equipped with dual Fender “Wide Range” humbucker pickups. The instrument has been customized with original painted artwork over the entire body, the fretboard and the front of the headstock.

Consisting of symbols, language snippets, abstract design, and splatter rendered in vivid, eye-catching colors, the one-of-a-kind street art-inflected composition is both a vibrant artwork in itself and a piece of Coldplay’s overall stage presentation.

Manufactured in 2010, the serial number “MX10285535” is printed on the back of the headstock. The art exhibits some rubbing and loss from the guitar’s stage use and the neck pickup cover shows surface wear from picking. A black Fender gig bag is included.
