    A couple of days ago I walked into town and as I was standing outside the local music shop, an alien space craft materialised above me. I was taken aboard via their tractor beam and obviously lost consciousness immediately.
    When I came to, I was back standing outside the music shop exactly as before but with one difference. I seem to have bought another Telecaster!
    I explained all this to Mrs R. who does not believe that this happened. Luckily I have photographic evidence, and here it is :

    It's a Made in Mexico FSR Thinline Deluxe, Candy Apple Red, mother of toilet seat scratch plate, bound top.
    There's some cosmetic damage on the rim near the bottom strap button and I got £120 off because of this.
    So a word of warning to you all, just be careful if you are walking near a music shop and keep your eyes on the skies.

    Congrats! Fine looking tele!

    You got a Tele out of the deal? Lucky man. Every alien encounter I have had resulted in my regaining consciousness with a sore butt and a fistful of stale Twinkies.

    That’s a telecaster alright. You can tell your wife that your story checks out 100%.

    That set of $1000 diamond earrings the aliens gave you to give to her should help you show the proof of the incident...

    That is one nice looking guitar! But here's the thing ... you really don't yet know the price you actually paid for it. When those aliens come back and give Mrs. R a ride of her own, THEN you'll find out the final price! :D:D

    I know that model has been made up in various pastel colors....

    But I think that deep dark red is an exceptionally nice match with the pearloid pickguard and the neck and all the small bits. Just aesthetically a really excellent looking piece.

    Gorgeous instrument...

    I wouldn't mind being abducted if I got a guitar like that (hint, hint, Zoltar!)...
