#1: Telecaster s/n 0009

Posted on 2005-12-04 07:18:31 by Max Leggett

Acording to the New Yorker, Chelsea Guitars has a Tele prototype s/n 0009.
It's described as having red metallic paint "possibly from a Studebaker
plant." Any Tele freaks in Noo Yawk might want to pay a visit and worship
this grail. No price was mentioned, and I wouldn't want to know anyway.

Since music is a language with some meaning at least for the immense
majority of mankind, although only a tiny minority of people are capable of
formulating a meaning in it, and since it is the only language with the
contradictory attributes of being at once intelligible and untranslatable,
the musical creator is a being comparable to the gods, and music itself the
supreme mystery of the science of man.

Shouldn't be too expensive, in view of the fact that there were eight
others before it.

According to the Richard Smith book, the serial numbers stamped on the
bridges weren't sequential. I suppose this means they were stamped
sequentially on the bridges in batches, or whatever, then random
bridges were pulled out and mounted on the guitars.

So it's probably really #1.

Actually, 0009 seems pretty early for a custom color.

All in all, I think I'd be doing the guy a favor offering him $100 for
it. Might even go up to $200, it it's in good shape and has the
original case.

:-) Remember the good old pawnshop days when they often had no idea what
they were selling? &quot;Well, it's playable, barley, but that type of guitaris
really out of style. I mean the Beatles sure don't play it. Paint job's a
bit skanky ..... I'll give you $200 and us it for parts. Deal?&quot;

Hey, remember it's used. I'd halt at $125, tops.

I know that. I was kidding.

Even if it WAS the ninth one it would be worth a fortune.

I'd pay $300 if they refinish it and put some Di Marzios in first...
