    Love it. I love worn guitars. The nuances in this blonde color look incredible. If it's like this in pix, it must be even greater in reality. Thanks for sharing.

    Holy cr*p, that Fiesta Red one is my dream guitar. When I bought my blond '69 I really wanted a red one, waited six weeks to get one...and then the music store told me they were no longer available in red (ugh). Since I was 14 at the time my father called around and said the only colors available in the music stores near me were blond, sunburst (which I hated) pink paisley and blue flower (which I also hated). So I bought my blond one, which I still have. I've learned to like the color over the years but a Fiesta Red or Candy Apple Red '69 Tele would be my dream guitar.

    ...And about 15 years ago I bought a pink paisley MIJ re-issue :-}

    Thanks so much for sharing. Are those color quite accurate? The faded clear is just so golden and incredibly nice on yours. One of the nicest guitars I`ve ever seen!

    Brad is one of the nicest guys in the industry !!! we talked gear and the possibility of him buying my 68' paisley. I really enjoyed meeting him and spending sometime backstage !
