    Hiya folks

    I am a Tele newbie. Ive never owned one but I have played them and I do love them.

    Back when I was "but a young boy" my cousin gave me the 2005 Fender Frontline catalogue, and inside was a double page feature on the Yuriy Shishkov Telecaster, blonde, with the Bigsby.

    Years ago I said I would own one and now I am in the position to be able to save to afford one it's a dream I'd like to make a reality

    I've been on the hunt for about 5 months now and a few have cropped up...both here in the UK and across the pond - but the prices of them vary hugely - from £2.5k to £4.5k

    Whats the reasoning behind this? How much do these go for at the moment?

    And finally - does anyone have one they'd sell? Long shot I guess :rolleyes:

    Many thanks
    Phil R

    I had one for a while. The difference in prices you see are most likely the difference between the "Masterbuilt" and the "Team Built" guitars. Obviously, the Materbuilt ones were built by Yuriy himself.

    Nice guitars but I did not bond with mine.

    no clue of the guitar you are speaking of. good luck on your hunt.
    maybe they did not make a whole bunch that would also give a clue about prices.

    Im not Familiar with the Guitar, but I am with the Builder. Hes built guiatrs for several Big Name guitarists.

    He also did a Featherlight Masterbuilt Closet Classic Tele and Strat that was. Paulowina body x 1/4 sawn Spruce Aircraft Grade Neck and Rosewood Fretboard.

    They were 10,000 MSRP.
