It wasn’t planned. I don’t know how this happened. But I kept buying new guitars and returning them or trading them away. I didn’t realize that the ones that stuck happened to be old, until I picked up this guy in a trade involving a really nice 2018 Tele. And then I looked at my small collection (4 electrics). A d it dawned on me. Anyway, this is the oldest. ‘64 or ‘65. Great player. Best offset I’ve ever owned. Definitely not a conscious thing. But for me, I guess I gravitate to old ones. The other thing I notice is that none of the necks have the finish worn away on the back from about the 1st to the 15th like the relics seem to.
