    I don't have pictures to share yet, but a cousin-by-marriage got damn lucky and won a 1969 pink paisley Telecaster recently!!!! And I'm downright jealous!!!

    A '69 pink paisley guitar is another one of my "dream" guitars that I would love to have but....the closest I'd probably ever come is having someone build an AllParts pink paisley Tele for me (NOS-style).

    He's gigging tonight in Sylva, NC but he said that he'd get me pictures ASAP. When he does, I'll share them. He also got an American Standard B-Bender Tele in a trade he made recently and I explained to him what a B-Bender was and all that good stuff and explained to him who the two men were that are responsible for that glorious device and told him about Marty Stuart owning Clarence White's original B-Bender Tele....

    I know.....I'm rambling but....I'm just a wee bit jealous because of the reasons first stated....

    So, did you ever get those pics? Hard to believe he won a $20,000 guitar. A great story, anyways.
