    That's probably my dream Telecaster, looks like Steve Cropper's.

    I Know things like this exist but this has to be THE "closet queen" of all... I mean, did someone buy it as a gift, hide it under the bed and forgot they bought it? Or did someone receive it as a gift, never took it out of the case and took up keyboard instead?... And, forgot they put it back under the bed for 55 years.. Wow!

    There will be some scrutiny about it's legitimacy. But if it is legit, I would think $35K-$55K... Maybe more.

    Man, what an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime find! And the case is gorgeous!

    See, this is why I like guitars better than most people. Put one of them in a case under a bed for 50 years, and they wouldn't show anywhere that nice ...

    it is in the UK so even rarer. Over here, to import from US or say Japan it is plus 25 percent duties and postage.

    Wow.... you know what strikes me funny about this is that someone in 1968 actually made payments on it for nearly a year! Only to resign it to live under the bed for 1/2 a century? To each his/her own I suppose but if I had spent a year paying something off, I surely would've gotten my money's worth out of it by rockin' that baby!!! LOL!!! What a heck of a find though! If legit it's got to be the most mint vintage tele I've seen yet!
