GREETING BOYS N' BERRIES. You might be wondering what's up with a post from the original sin-city in guitar-town, Tennessee? Simple, looking for WORKING MUSICIANS with a few extra bucks to spend on gear they might want and can use.

TWIN-TELE HEAVEN. I am a bona fide Tele-geek/collector and have two of the absolute best left of a bunch I bought over the years. All brand-new, unplayed, never left climate-controlled studio (or house for that matter), no smoke, no pets, no sh*t. New with tags, owner's manuals, neck adj. wrenches, and their Fender shipping cartons even. All classic Butter-Scotch Blondies and all Fender Squier Classic Vibes 50's Teles Blackguards (and all that that implies), just cheaper, as these are the Squiers. These all came from Sweetwater, where you can choose which actual guitar you want, see photos, and perhaps most importantly, get guitar weights. They go for $429.99. Still with plastic on pickguards and chrome neck pickup with original strings, basically untouched. All in brand-new perfect fitting heavy-duty Musicians Friend, Musicians Gear (MG MEG) Molded ABS Tele cases which go for $149.99 complete with set of keys. BTW will not find a better more sturdy and heavy-duty case than these. Fits the Teles like a glove and solid and I have tried them all.

And here is the best part...both 7 pounders! Extremely rare, almost nonexistent. Weight has to do with how well the wood is cured (moisture content) and the better cured the wood, the more resonate the instrument, which is what you want. Strum a good resonate lightweight, unplugged old Tele and the SOB will ring out nice to the point you can even sorta play it that way and hear it. The 50's Teles were all about 7 pounders (plus or minus) and a pleasure to play and even just pick up outta their cases (I know I had and played an (actual) '52 professionally for years). When a Tele gets to 9-10 lbs. they are simply too damn heavy (a 10 lb. Tele is an oxymoron) and you might as well be playing a Les Paul. Awesome guitars, and everyone is knocked out by these Classic Vibes.

These are the PINE bodies (like the original very early 50's) and maple neck Blackguards and have awesome, pleasing to the eye, bodies as well (many do not). To get 'em lightweight AND with nice bodies is quite rare, you will simply never find a matched pair of these this nice. One of these has a more opaque and creamy butterscotch finish, reminiscent of an actual Fender '52 reissue and those went for two grand, the other has last four digits of serial '1956'! Alnico single coils and with a neck pup better than the original Teles had. These are truly the cream of the crop and a steal by any measure.

Both 2021's (matched set if you will) and 'ISS' serial's which means made in Indonesia Squiers and made by Samick, which is considered the best factory for these to come from, and some say on par with Fender stuff itself.

Some cool stuff you can do with these I was going to do, is to replace the 3 stainless-steel bridge saddles with brass ones as on the originals (said to sound more authentic and certainly look better) and Fender does have the original and awesome original Tweed Thermometer cases to fit these for $199.99 as well. All the data/info you could want (and then some) on these is available online, tons of reviews and you tube videos comparisons as well. Suffice it to say the Tele community has been nuts about these 50's Classic Vibes for years now, I could include some comments, but this is long enuf and you can find them for yourself. Only problem with them is most are pretty heavy, and lots have not so nice bodies. Check them out for yourself.

You see this post, items are for sale, no need to ask. Have sold large gear (88 key Fender Rhodes Suitcase Piano and speaker/amp bottom comes to mind) to Nashville musicians before and am located just off I-80 in Reno, Exit 9, few miles from California state line. We met at the exit ramp and loaded the stuff into their truck, they did not even have to leave the interstate. Have a new, unused Lacquered Tweed Fender Blues Jr. posted as well here (see other posts by seller) which would be absolutely perfect with these Teles. If you are heading to California on tour or on vacation or whatnot, we can easily meet at your convenience. We can also ship the guitar(s), have all the original Fender cartons and packing materials and guitars will be in in their heavy-duty ABS cases. Cost Reno to Nashville maybe $80-$90 bucks each and I know how to pack bomb-proof UPS-proof. Call or email (number in post, sorry do not do texts).

Gettin' old and on new wife's orders cleaning out home studio/office and pricey commercial storage units, no tax, no fees, no flakes, no checks, no B.S., never desperate, specialize in quality stuff for quality people who can appreciate it. These will be posted on other sites as well, so if you want them, buy them, as once a bid is received on other site, they come off here pronto and vice-versa. Also, did I mention no pricey sales tax here. Firm price.

Cash only, no holds, no trades, no B.S. These instruments are currently for sale on Sweetwater, where they were purchased, for $429.99, add in another $149.99 for the ABS hard cases and don't forget sales tax of another $40-$50 or so, and that makes it $620-$630. You can have your pick of the litter or better yet, buy both today, for $400 each.

P.S. Have an awesome brand-new unused FENDER BLUES JR. LACQUERED TWEED TUBE COMBO AMP posted as well, which would make an incredible amp to go with these, available here as well (click 'more ads by this user' link).

Thanks, Dave.
