I have the opportunity to purchase a Phillip Kubicki Telecaster and I have some questions. To be up front, I am not a Telecaster player.....I am a banjo player of all things. hahahaha But....this is a great guitar and I don't want the opportunity to slip through my fingers. This particular guitar has three pickups, 5 way switch, butterscotch/yellow body (can see the grain in the wood), black pickguard, natural maple neck and fingerboard. It has black binding around the sides of the body with another wood checkerboard binding beside the black trim. It is a beautiful guitar and plays super smooth. My question is......how collectible are the Kubicki guitars now and would it be a better investment than a regular Fender Tele? Also....how hard would it be to track down who originally had this guitar built? Thanks in advance!
