Sorry if this has been posted before but it's a great story from the Fender lore.
And in red too! Will watch later.
I love this stuff! amazing how things began...........different time....so cool.
So cool. I love how he admits it's for sale, but clearly hopes he gets to keep it.
That was extremely interesting, thanks very much
And yeah totally great, basically its for sale but please please dont buy it
Wonder how much he is asking
Very cool, thanks for posting. In the mid 80's I was fortunate to play Broadcaster #0017. It was a fantastic instrument, truly dripping with vibe.
Yeah, I was expecting a blond or butterscotch blackguard and was surprised when he got it out of the case.
Is that Dakota red?
He says Studebaker but I think all the car companies used the same type of paint in that period.
No pickguard to boot!
Funny that the "amp man" used it as a junk guitar to test the amps coming off the line.
I have a 1954 Deluxe.... to think that this guitar was plugged into it at some point...
very cool thanks for posting it. chelsea guitars is a very cool little spot. I stopped by there a couple of years ago by accident when I was just walking around NY city burning time.
I just went on there website to see what he was selling the broadcaster for and found he's selling jeff buckley's telecaster!! very cool spot
thank you. awesome. i could watch stuff like this all day!!!
Thanks for sharing; great story and guitar -- everytime he slid it across the top of that case, I kept going, "Don't! That's another scratch!" lol Love the handwritten note by Fullerton as well.
Scrape it across the case a couple more times.
I know someone who has a 59 black beauty and has had it since the 70's. To see him treat it like any old guitar is priceless!
After all, that's what it is, his old guitar.
I have some nice guitars that I treat the same way... but damn. The sensitive mic sure doesn't help.
I was thinking the same thing! Geez! But a ding from 1964 and 2012 are still just dings.
wow, very cool, looks like it had a pickguard on it at some point in time
