    Well .... let's just say it starts in 1974.....

    Lawsuit era Ibanez.... originally was a horrible chocolate brown so it is an improvement on that!

    [​IMG] I bought one of the ugliest Teles ever. Cut it up and used the pieces as templates to build a new one. Can't figure out how to post a pic of it. I tried putting in the number but all I get is [​IMG]

    It’s Bloomfield’s wonderful tele: 1963. A truly historical telecaster (Dylan @ Newport) which was butchered like that by a later owner.

    OK I am crying all over again…

    ANY "Telecaster" model from any company, especially these Squiers from Fender MADE IN CHINA! POS Wood, components, too thick plastic finish, craftsmanship = thin, wimpy, dull sound and horrible play-ability (feel).

    Just one Example -
