Well, I've gone and done it. A couple of blogs after I complained about 'the acquisition of things',  I have only gone and acquired more things.  

This one was worth it though. And in all fairness,  I got rid of a whole bunch of stuff to make room for it. 

1966 Fender Telecaster

1966 Fender Telecaster

That is my 1966 Fender Telecaster.  Not a 'relic' not a copy, but a real 1966 Tele,  played to shit. Why?! Because they just don't build them like this any more.   

It barks, it bites, the whole thing shakes when you play it.  

I'm not worried about bringing this thing on the road either. In its 50 years it's seen a lot more than I have,  and I'm not going to be the one who puts it in a cupboard at home, just to say I have one. No. This bugger is going to be played and played.
