I've got a sad tele story to tell. My younger brother died four years ago. I was tasked with sorting through his stuff and getting everything organized. I asked my younger sister, my brother's twin, if she would like to have his tele (his #1). She doesn't play, but I thought she would like to have it as an object with a strong association to him. He was a good player. Well, unfortunately my sister has been dealing with pretty severe mental health issues since our brother passed. She has been hospitalized several times with psychosis, delusions, paranoia and things like that. She is in the hospital right now. I spoke to her on the phone yesterday. She seems to be doing pretty well, but she confessed to me that she had, at the height of this most recent episode, felt compelled to take his guitar out into the desert and leave it there, as sort of a ceremonial letting go. Makes me think of Gram Parsons. Anyway, I was sad to hear it, but it was her property to do with it as she pleased. If anyone finds a highly "customized" Squire telecaster in a brown case in the desert west of Tucson, please let me know.
