Joseph F. Glidden of DeKalb, Illinois, received a patent for the modern invention of barb wire in 1874. This one piece of old growth pine was salvaged during the Barn/Workshop renovation. Ron Kirn built this Telecaster from it. It’s not your Grampa’s Tele. Well played. Very stable. Thanks Ron! There are many Clint Eastwood Barncasters and I wanted a Wyatt Earp Model. 19th century Top Tier. Real pearl pick guard and engraved plates. 19th century style. Always promised “Belle” an introduction to the community. Just finally fulfilling her wishes.
