Vintage Surf Green 1962 Fender Tele Custom Telecaster

via this auction
"beautifully playing 1962 Fender Custom Telecaster with a history. This guitar was given to John Pisano by Leo Fender in mid to late 1962. John was an accomplished West Coast session, jazz and touring guitarist with Peggy Lee, Benny Goodman, Joe Pass (among others) and was a member of Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass in their mid to late 1960s heyday. As John states on his web site, "(Leo) Fender used to send me... during the period when I was with The Tijuana Brass. If we were doing a television special or something, and needed a particular color guitar. They send it over right away… and with just cause! The Tijuana Brass was getting a lot of exposure at the time, and Fender would get a lot of exposure from it." This is one of those guitars."
