Both guitars are all original with original ashtrays, case, cords and straps. The '53 has the original polishing cloth. The amp is my 1953 Super. I have not strung up the Broadcaster yet as it really needs a setup. I don't think it has been setup since the late 1970's. Hope you enjoy these nice Fender historical pieces!
So much mojo in a single pic!
Wow. Those Historical Pieces are amazing. No setup required for 30 or 40 years! And the cords and polishing cloths were made so much better back then, too -50 years and still going!
WHAT has happened to Fender quality in recent years!
Seriously though, pure museum stuff there! Those ashtrays usually got re-purposed, lost or tossed.
Wow, they even have near the same fretboard wear.
Very cool!, My 2011 anniversary blonde black guard is prettier but those two are WAYYY cooler. Sure would love to see and hear in person!!
No, different owners. I have had the Tele for years. The Broadcaster for weeks!
Sorry that pic above is sideways! Original owner with guitar in two pics. It was his pride and joy. His wife gave me one original Polaroid. Broadcaster originally bought in Winchester, VA and the music store G & M is still in business, but alas, had no records from 1950.
What Tele dreams are made of, thanks for sharing.
I'm guessing you don't lend those out for the weekend?
Beauts. Love it.
Absolutely stunning guitars you, I'm sure everyone who looks at this thread will envy the beauties.
Every guitar should have a little truss rod tweak as the seasons change, especially if you live somewhere, where those seasonal changes are very large. Also, a few vintage instruments are duds it wasn't money no object making these things, they weren't made in very high quantities but at the same time the staff weren't highly experienced or trained staff although some became very good and their names have become famous with fender fanatics but they were just ordinary people doing a job at the time.
Rode hard, and put away wet. Really nice!
