    Hmmm... As per my other thread, was thinking about getting a cheap no-name strat and modding but have the opportunity to buy a Fender Classic 60s and therefore need to raise some cash to prevent divorce.

    Indie Telecaster - bought in Bairds about 6 months ago for 290. To be honest, I haven't seen any like this anywhere else and have searched the internet without success - so can't provide any specs. I bought this after playing many, many Teles around the 300-350 mark and liked this best. It has a matt maple neck, medium-jumbo frets (I think - definitely quite chunky), 3 ply pickguard. The finish is, erm... I dunno really. Is it blonde or desert sand or something? Quite a light coat with the odd wood blemish visible underneath. Character building, I reckon.

    Its made in Korea (little sticker on the back don't lie), is quite heavy so I suspect a decent chunk of wood and not laminated/ plywood/ cardboard. Nice Tele tones with great country twang on the middle, nice warm blues/ jazz on the neck.

    Could probably do with a decent set up but neck is nice and straight, holds tune even with some seriously big bluesy bends. Strung with 9s at the moment (for a change) but has had 10s previously and still played nicely in tune.

    Not sure what a reasonable price is, or even if there's any interest in a non-Fender Tele.

    Offers? Ideally cash although trades considered. Really, REALLY, don't want to stick this up on Gumtree - last time I did this and invited trades I was offered a set of dumbells and a mini-fridge. (Not for this guitar, I hasten to add...)

    Hi There

    The finish is known as the "Mary Kaye" finish. Mary was known as "The First Lady of Rock and Roll" during the fifties. Fender produced a special Strat for her with that blond semi see-through effect. So, Mary, who was something to do with the Hawian Royal Family, was the first ever Fender Endorsee. As with all Indies, it punches well above it's weight, and will probably be a better guitar than many Fenders you see in the shops.

    Will you swap it for a pallet of Greek bottled water?


    If it were dark, i'd be all over it.

    You learn something every day, Tony. It is a lovely guitar but I have promised my nearest and dearest that there will be only one guitar at a time, otherwise I'd not be selling. And I'm entering a Hendrix/Gilmour/Fruschiante phase - I can feel it coming...

    Leif, I think I now understand why that mother and child incident occurred. Pallet of greek bottled water indeed!
