    This is probably interesting to even telecaster guys.

    I started browsing the 5 Museum pieces from the early 60s.

    fender decided to sell them, just gorgeous.

    Available on reverb. Just click the link in the newsfeed.

    Where did I put that extra $35,000 I love the red Stratocaster OMG.

    These guitars were listed 8 days ago and sold within a few hours. Joe Bonamassa probably bought them all, 'cause his collection isn't big enough yet. It's pretty amazing how clean they all look for their age, especially the '57 one. The neck looks brand new, with no yellowing even.

    They were in cases in a vault. Brought out for measurements, only. I guess once the machines were setup and the data backed up, I guess FMIC figured why not grab at the 180,000.00 laying around on the table, so to speak.

    the thing I really enjoyed, was the Museum approach on presenting the photos.

    They disassembled the guitars and show you great amount of detail of these 50, 60, almost 70-year-old guitars.

    Super impressive excellent photography excellent presentation.

    Thank you fender and thank you reverb

    Has traveled many years and came back to my fathers hand into mine. Brouht to a gitarbilder to cheched it out. He was speechless. We think it was never opened but they played on it and told me becarefull. Bit of fretware on the full lenght of the neck frets are stil the original. And sold between 60 and 63 so it was built earlier

    [QUOTE = "Almature, post: 9585550, lid: 150316"] Heeft vele jaren gereisd en is teruggekeerd naar de hand van mijn vader in de mijne. Brouht naar een gitarbilder om het uit te roeien. Hij was sprakeloos. We denken dat het nooit is geopend, maar ze hebben het gespeeld en hebben me verteld dat ik voorzichtig moest zijn. Een beetje fretware op de volledige lengte van de nekfretten is nog steeds het origineel. En verkocht tussen 60 en 63, dus het werd eerder gebouwd [/ QUOTE]
    Dacht ik maar is niet zo1964 gekocht en 1963 gebouwd
