I have to forewarn you. It’s only fair. It’s only respectful of our relationship. And kind of like George Washington, I cannot tell a lie*…
I acquired this lovely 1968 Telecaster (above) last week. I got a good deal on it becuase it was refinished at some point in its history…so it cost roughly 50% of what a ‘68 with its original finish would have cost.
My point is this: I am so excited by this acquisition. Never did I think I’d be able to afford a 1960s Tele. And yet here I am. So, I am going to literally bombard you with photos of it for the foreseeable future! Apologies in advance for the tedium… :D
* PS: My love of art and painting specifically (particularly 20th C. American painting) led me to an artist named Grant Wood (whom you may know from his super-famous painting “American Gothic”). As I learned about his work, I came across his 1939 painting called “Parson Weems Fable” which taught me that the whole George Washington/I cannot tell a lie/cherry tree story is a complete fabrication! I am so disillusioned… :\
