"You are looking at a very cool vintage piece. This is the Roy Bachanan owned/played/signed '52 Fender Telecaster. 25.5" scale. 1 5/8" nut width. 7.8 lbs. Roy Buchanan is one of the most important guitarists of the last several decades. His gorgeous earthy tone, his fiery blues, and fantastic Tele bends have inspired legions of guitarists everywhere. To get our hands on one of his actual guitars was such an incredible experience. You can feel the mojo coming off this one when you hold it in your hands. This is such a gorgeous example- pine body, perfectly played in...this beauty absolutely resonates bringing forth Buchanan's infamous Tele tone. As this was one of Roy's personal guitars, he modified it a bit- '67 Tele neck with jumbo fretwire, 80's pots, brass nut...all done while chasing the perfect tone and feel. When you plug this in, you immediately get that 'worn in sneakers' vibe- immediately comfortable with that great earthy tone Buchanan is known for. From nashville cleans to overdriven blues- just an incredible piece of history and an amazing player. This auction includes the Fender tweed hardshell case, paperwork from the the gentleman that personally purchased the guitar from Roy, and Roy's signature right on the top bout of the body. This is an amazing opportunity for a fan, collector, or player..."
