And excellent fried bologna sandwiches!
A local guy who had a music store told the same thing about a store that he worked at here in Memphis around that time, he said they had a whole bunch of new 50s and 60s Strats that were unsold, you could buy any of them for around $100 each.
Who would have ever dreamed that one day they would be worth so much now.
A shame he's not that generous anymore.
Keep in mind guys, that it's not about the parts, but about who put those parts together.
I had a chance to but two different Goldtops for $160 each when I was 15.
I only had $62 at the time.
Just as well that I didn't. I probably would have hacked them up and repainted them anyway.
I hope they survived intact though.
Fried Lebanon Bologna (sweet) or pink (minced) Bologna? I love me a sweet bologna fried in butter and honey on buttered toast but never fried the pink stuff.
"The Pink Stuff"?If you haven't tried fried bologna, aka the pink stuff, what's the freaking holdup? Good stuff!
I'm sorry, I have been playing guitar since the 1960's and I never saw a Strat, Tele or any other Fender guitar going for $100.00. Maybe $175.00 to $200.00, but that was on the low end. Maybe is some parts of the country they were going for that, I don't know, but nowhere in California. Japanese Knock offs were selling for $100.00 back then. Some of this stuff is urban myth in my opinion.
You try sweet Lebanon bologna fried in butter and you'll turn your nose up at minced bologna. There are likely 200+ PA Dutch/Amish families who make this stuff in this area and I've been eatin' bolony sammiches since I'm a nubbin'. Just saying I've ate all kinds of this stuff.(not to say that you haven't) BUT! I will fry up some of the pink stuff soon and compare. Still got maybe 1/4# in the fridge.
I love this picture. His clip on name tag say Hey, this is friggin Eric Clapton.
I’ve always wondered, what happened to all of he parts he didn’t use? Had to be at least one decent strat left in all those parts.
1970-1974, in Tucson, AZ, I bought and sold A few Strats and Teles to “try them out”. Teles were going for $50 and Strats For $75. At the time, I played a Gibson SG and the Fenders did not appeal to me.
I decided to check the inflation rate for grins, and $150 in 1970 USD is equivalent to $1015.56 in 2020!
Thank goodness for the more "affordable" gear today.
Looks like he was feeling fine... and dressed to party
And u didn’t like those old things ?
Considering the way they are made, all Fender guitars are factory partcasters.
IIRC Sho-Bud was well know for their pedal steels…
I bought my’60 Strat in ‘71 for $250. at McFaydens Music in Fayetteville, NC. To sweeten the deal they thru in a Gibson Discoverer amp. All my friends said get a Gibson guitar and a Fender amp but I couldn’t afford it. I still have the Strat and the amp and still gig the guitar.
$400 in 1970 is equivelant to $2800 today....not exactly "really cheap" (for us mere mortals not EC)
I think it's the plain old Oscar Meyer, not Lebanon, or German, or Boar's Head, or anything like that. Really good with a cold PBR.
