Yeah I remember reading that...was the guys name...Ronnie Salmon? I think I saw Twink say somewhere that he was still using a Tele when he was back in Cambridge playing with Stars so guess he gave it away sometime after 74'UlricvonCatalyst wrote: ↑Tue Jun 23, 2020 11:23 pm
There's an anecdote from the concierge at Chelsea Cloisters in one of the Barrett biographies about Syd giving him lots of stuff including groovy Granny takes A Trip-type threads and "expensive guitars. Fenders". All that is certain is that Syd parted company with his at some point, which begs the question: who's got it now? You would think it's still out there, somewhere, though it could have been parted out.
Due to it's rarity, if it DID turn up it'd be much easier to id as his than just some random tele...even 'black in the cavities showing that was the original colour/being in the UK' would start ringing bells that it might be this. Any ideas how many were originally made in that colour scheme?
Crazy also to think that the mirror esquire is out there too, almost certainly minus the mirrors!
