If all of the Tele Customs we’ve seen lately in the hands of well-known players are any indication, this could be the next model to escalate rapidly in price. And why not? They’re versatile, sexy, and emanate effortless ‘70s cool — kind of like James Garner’s Firebird on The Rockford Files. Keith Richards fans know that he has maintained a Tele Custom in his arsenal since the mid-seventies. As a testament to the ruggedness of this model, check out this clip of Keef using his to whack an unruly fan in the early eighties. When he straps it back on, it’s still in tune! And what’s the instrument he fires up for the opening number in Martin Scorsese’s “Shine a Light”? Yup, it’s his Tele Custom. This guitar has a couple of minor modifications, including a brace of apparently replaced pots (two date to 1974 and two to ‘75), a bit of additional routing hidden behind the pickguard (the prior owner briefly experimented with moving the pickup selector to that position before moving it back), and a replaced pickguard. That said, the pickups are original and very well-balanced, the speedy neck is finished in a nice “U”-shape, the frets are in great condition with plenty of life remaining, and the guitar is quite lightweight. From dusty desert twang to muddy-bottom blues, this Tele can do it all, and you’ll look cool too—like Jim Rockford behind the wheel of his Firebird zipping around Malibu. Buy this before it “accidentally” ends up in the permanent Aardvark collection. With original Fender logo case. Sold! Thanks John!
