Tony King 74 Tele Custom

Here is my 74 Tele Custom that I have had for over 20 years. I bought it from a friend that had told me it belonged to Tony King about the time he was playing with Vince Gill and was engaged to Wynonna Judd. I had the opportunity to speak to him about while I was riding on the Brooks and Dudd tour bus to a show in Tyler Tx many years ago. I recall he made an offer to trade one of his Custom Shop Strats for it but I had very little interest in doing so. This guitar is now a natural relic. I have never polished it, the finish is cracked all over, it has a broken tone knob that I refuse to replace and the tuning keys had been changed prior to my ownership. The S/N on the back plate dates it as a 74 model. The case is original and also from the same era. The 3 bolt neck is not the most steady but it is fun to play especially when I cut the low E off and tune to open G and rip into some Stones ala Keef! I wonder if Tony still wants it back?
