WOW! Even $1600 in 2003 would have been a steal…..It was in a Mars Music. Remember them? Mars: The Music Planet!
I saw this beat-up-lookin' Lake Placid blue Tele on the used guitars wall and took it down and played it a bit. It played great. But $600 for a beat up Tele in 2003 was sort of goofy. Then I noticed the CS decal on the back of the headstock. I took it to the counter and pointed out this mis-marked price. I told the guy there should be a 1 in front of the 600. He looked it up in the system and said yeah, you're right. But it's marked $600 and you can have it for that price if you want it. SOLD.
It's a CS Time Machine '63 Tele made in 2000.
