I’m going to get it this afternoon. I can always flip it if I don’t dig it.
Be rude not to wouldn’t it?

I'd bang it
The seller just sent me clip of him playing it. Sounds great. Have convinced my wife it’s a sound investment so off to the cashpoint for me!
Ha, what a pushover... 😂🙏
Guilty pleasure wasting time on guitar-auctions.co.uk while at work.
@Fatberg some SGs sold in the last auction don't think you can try before you buy tho.
Preview catalogue is up for the new auction.
Drooling at the 1960 Tele & Gibson L-48
Tele looks great but sadly reading the description it has been subjected to a number of indignities (Seymour Duncan pickup, middle pickup routing under the guard, etc).
Yea and estimate at 4k. It's being marketed by them as 'players grade'.
A 4k 1960 Telecaster is a steal any day of the week!
I've got a weird and specific desire to own a 1968 rosewood board Telecaster and a 1972 Les Paul Deluxe as they're two of the guitars Justin Vernon has used most extensively in Bon Iver (I'm an absolute BI ultra-fan if I never made it clear, according to Spotify statistics I'm in the top 1% of Bon Iver listeners worldwide 😂) so I've been keeping an eye on 1960s Telecaster prices and I haven't even seen a 1968 (in all of its post-CBS shame) for 4k!
As long as you wanted it to play it that would be a superb buy!
Nice. will keep an eye on that site. And yeah 4k for a pre CBS tele is a steal. I don't care what previous indignities it has been subject to as long as the the wood is there tbh.
At the other end of the budget spectrum... this followed me home.
it's fun. fecking loud for 5w. Had to crank the champ to keep up. Nice combination.
Sweet! I liked mine - they’ve got a good roar to them.
On the topic of Teles, does anyone know a good source of spare bodies that won’t cost the earth? Decent seconds would definitely be an option.
Have all other parts to build up a Tele and would love to get to stain and wax it for a nice matt finish 🤔
Guitarbuild look really good and I know SC Guitars use them for their bodies.
There's also a Russian chap on Reverb doing super cheap pine bodies that I've had in my watch list forever and they look great!
Spotify told me I’m in the top 1% of Charli XCX fans. Not remotely ashamed.
I'm genuinely not well enough versed to pass judgement but if you've listened to that much it certainly says something 😅
I'll have to have a listen!
Any other top pop tips from guitar nerds?
I rather like Jorja Smith and Snoh Aalegra after discovering their Tiny Desk concerts, both fairly R&B-ish with hench basslines though which explains a lot.
I am mainly a fan of all her output with A.G. Cook, SOPHIE and the PC Music collective (Vroom Vroom, Number 1 Angel, Pop 2, Charli, How I’m Feeling Now). I am probably more of an electronic music nerd than a guitar nerd... I like a fairly wide range of different stuff though.

Have a listen to 'Call me unique' if you are in into the r&b ish vibes. Birminghams finest, think she will do really well in the future.
Have you heard Thundercat? He’s great.
Bonus Haim appearance at the end.
The recent Tom Misch record with Yussef Dayes is also great (What Kinda Music). I find a lot of Tom Misch’s solo stuff tends towards being a bit cheesy but on this Yussef just balances him out perfectly.
Imma big BI fan. Got tickets to the rescheduled Wembley show this coming Nov. Hope it happens...
I literally get all my new music inspo from Tiny Desk...
reason i want a bass
This is great!
despite that dude's hair (wig?)
Wig, they've been doing matching wigs for years!
