Fender American Vintage Telecaster is a guitar from Fender's American Vintage Series manufactured by Fender. Murray's model, with star stickers on the front, has been dubbed by fans the "Red Starry Guitar".

It first appeared in The Wiggles Movie and last appeared in It's a Wiggly Wiggly World!.

Jeff was never seen playing the guitar, only The Awake Wiggles have.

According to the song "Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big Red Car" and "Dorothy The Dinosaur (Tell Me Who Is That Knocking?)". Plus the episodes "Lilly", "Multicultural", "Imagination" and "Play", the Red Starry Guitar is Murray's guitar.

In "The Wiggles Movie" when Murray was young he plays his favourite Red Electric Guitar which was a Fender MST-32 Mini Stratocaster but that was before it had stars. The guitar was seen played by Murray when he and the other wiggles sang Hot Potato.
