What’s the Tele?
My dads Fender Malibu from 1965.
I have all my guitars and amplifiers covered under a separate “Personal Items” policy specifying the value of each”.

I'd lock myself in my music room with my guitars and hope that we'd all survive.. S
This one is special. With two woodstoves in the house, it is something to think about.
It’s an American Vintage 52 from 2011 (old series) which I bought used in a very good bargain. Wonderful in every respect. Talking solidbodies, she was the little queen of the house, but now she has to share the rule with the white strat
My 62 ES-330. My Gpaw left it to me as well as an 84 studio custom LP, and a 78 goldtop LP, but this is my connection to him, and the sweetest neck I've ever played. This assuming all other would be destroyed. Desert island would be my 96 B-Bender Tele.
guitar would be very low on my list. I can always make or buy a new one--both activities are a lot of fun. Other things in the house are irreplaceable and I'd be focused on those
A Gretsch 6120 Setzer Nashville.
I haven't done a count but my impression of this thread is that Teles don't figure as much as you might expect on a Tele fan forum. Any thoughts why?
In my case, much as I love my three - and I've put quite a lot of effort into getting a couple of them the way I wanted them - they're all pretty much replaceable off the shelf whereas the custom made banjo that I chose to save from this fantasy fire is unique, made for me by a luthier with a 5 year waiting list now.
I wish I did have a Tele I'd risk my safety for. The nearest to it is my copy of the book in this picture!
30k worth of guitars. I'd be standing firm with a garden hose!
Well, Teles are mass-produced, and they’re basically a breadboard with a baseball bat screwed on, so even great ones can be pretty easily replaced!
My 1965 Mustang. I bought it when I was 17 and there is a lot of sentimental attachment. It was the only guitar I played for the 10 years after I bought it. Everything else could burn.
This 1974 Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary. I bought it with will money from my grandfather's estate and I vowed I'd never sell it. I gigged and recorded the majority of stuff over the decades with this, so it's like a limb. It's not my best guitar today, but it is truly mine in all respects and the one I'd hate to see gone.
The one on the left.
Be careful what you wish for .
The one on the left. That guitar plays and sounds marvelous. The rest are set up well, play well and sound good.
When I bought the one on the left I felt somewhat guilty. It was quite expensive and I am maybe an average player. The first time my wife walked by when I was playing it she stopped and said, “That is the best sounding guitar you own.” No more guilt and she is correct.
Funny, during the height of hurricane Sandy, around 11 pm, a house caught fire. No power and out the back window you could see an ominous glow getting bigger. Opened the door and you could smell smoke. Streets were blocked due to trees down and fire dpt couldn't get there. With the amazing wind we thought the whole neighborhood was going to burn. So, with only 3 escape options at our house, and not knowing which one would be usable (house behind us had 3 huge trees come down, blocking people from getting out) I proceeded to take all my instruments, divide them into 3 groups and place at each door and save whatever I could. Sorta funny now but terrifying then.
Tough to nail down 1 but maybe these: July 68 thinline, 1925 A4 snakehead, 1933 Ric Frypan
