1956 Fender Telecaster Guitar Blue

via this auction

"The time has come for me to part with my #1 Telecaster . I bought this guitar from Andy Brauer several years ago . This was Andys #1 go to Tele . This Telecaster was in the hands of George Harrison , Keith Richards , Clapton , to name just a few . This guitar has some serious mojo . She has that Tele spank and clarity yet can get nasty .

Serial number is 15172 which dates her 1956 . She is a factory re-fin , done in the 60’s we believe . Probably was painted Daphne Blue which now has turned a cool turquoise . The re-fin is laquer of course , not the poly . Neck pickup reads 5.78 ohms and the bridge pickup reads 5.96 ohms . Pickups all original . Tele weighs 7.11 pounds . Soft C neck shape . Great Telecasters like this don’t come around every day . She’s not going cheap . This guitar is worth every penny I am asking . If she doesn’t go to a new home … oh well …. More years of love here

This guitar plays great , sounds great . Great investment . This Tele just has that spank – growl when you need it and vibe."
