    Hi, I'm looking for the pages that are on the early '60s slab board teles, but can't find the book as an ebook online to purchase, nor can I find pdf version online.

    Thank you!

    I’m curious about this book, which is new to me. What makes it special compared to other Tele histories?

    No help to OP, just reminiscing,

    but from the mid '80's -early 2000's, I feel like I bought every guitar book, amp book, and magazine ( 30+years of GP magazine!) In existence
    A little silly, when I think about it now.

    The A.D Stratocaster, and Telecaster books, and Tom Wheeler( I think) ' American Guitars' were among the first. And the best in real content and information...

    We live in an apartment now, so most is at a storage unit ( threw away hundreds of worn out mags)

    but still have a few 'guitar picture books' and Rolling Stone or MOJO Artist Special issues

    * I could have bought a '59 Les Paul with the $$ I spent on books and mags!

    probably the most detailed piece of work available on the Tele.

    The book is not set up like that. There are sections on wiring, headstocks, colors, etc. It's not set up, really, on a year by year basis. You'll have to get the entire book to get all of the info...

    I've been following and thinking why doesn't the OP just pick one up. Man that book shot up in price. I'm glad I took care of mine. Duck, maybe if you tell us what exactly you are looking for, one of us can find it.

    I guess my “need to pick up a copy of that one of these days” is shot to heck now.

    Yea I know when I got mine it wasn't $20. Good book, but I wouldn't get it now. I could be persuaded to sell.....if the price is right.

    I just looked on Amazon for this book. The cheapest is $78.
    I should sell my two extra copies

    Seems Duck Attack just went Goose and is running around in circles. I think I have this book brand spanking new in my book case. Need to go check.
