If he had a 1951 Fender it would have to have been a Tele or Esquire, since the Strat didn't come into being until 1954. I've never seen him pictured with a Tele & it's certainly not what he made his name with, but I hope it is worth $250,000 to the buyer.
Hmmm. Amother trophy for the Irsay vault?
Looks like a Tele: pics from Heritage Auctions website:
There is a lot of history with that guitar. I think his brother gave it to him very early, may have been his first good guitar, ( I don’t remember for sure) and he carved his name in the back....kinda cool, not 250k cool to me.
Very cool . Looks to me like 3 different pieces of wood are used ( note the grain ) I like that look myself .
But what I don't like is if Fender released a " tribute model " designed after this the working guy will not be able to afford one .
1/4 of a million for some old wood?
They must have had some loose change.
Maybe not 250K cool, but way cooler and cheaper than any 3000K LP...
Could be one or maybe two "flat sawn" pieces Rich. I like that look as well.
I'll never understand. Only my opinion.
Makes me wonder what Stevie's #1 would fetch.
Guitar Center paid 623K for Lenny at auction
It is a matter of supply and demand. There are not so many guitars with a certified SRV-pedigree.
Wow, that's not even his number one!
Aye,crazy money,cool geet though!
Who bought it?
I guess if one is a multi millionaire, this kind of purchase doesn't sting so much. That being said, that's an obscene amount of cake for a guitar. Imo.
Lottery money. But for that $ Id buy Dirty White Boy and the sellers 57' Falcon
Alvin Lee was offered $500k for his Woodstock era 335. He says a looney gave him half a million for it:
I could swear he finally sold it, but I can't confirm that.
