I have a 1972 American Tele that was customized by Valdez Guitars in Hollywood, California for Country guitarist, singer and radio personality, Eddy Drake. The body’s gold leaf work was done by Valdez and even though Eddy's first name was misspelled, he loved the craftsmanship and overall look of the instrument so much he let it stay that way and took it on the road. Eddy Drake played lead guitar with this very Telecaster and toured with the likes of Merle Haggard, Charlie Pride, Marty Robbins, Jerry Lee Lewis and many other big name acts. He toured as Haggard's lead guitar player for three years. I purchased the guitar from Eddy in 2002. He passed in 2005. I am thinking of selling the Tele and I am not sure what to ask for it. I see people asking anywhere from $2,000 to $35,000 for their 1972 Telecasters and they don't have the great history this one does. It is in very good condition and plays really nice. As you can see from the photos, it has had a fret job. Two actually over the years. The last one I had done after I bought the guitar from Eddy. It was professionally done and plays lightning fast. Any help with the value, and your reasoning, would be greatly appreciated.
