Firebirds are the most musical of all birds.

Here is a lovely Custom Shop “VII” in all its triple-pickup-gold-hardware-and-fancy-fretboard inlay glory!

So lets talk price:  the last shot shows 2 Gibson USA (i.e. not Custom Shop) “V” models which were selling for roughly $1,300.  The third shot is a Custom Shop “V” and its price was ~$4,000.  The rest of the photos show a Custom Shop “VII” with its extreme fancy trim.  Price?  Over $5,000!

Lefties of the week from Long and McQuade in Brampton and Mississauga (suburbs of Toronto, Canada)

That LPC is gorgeous, and I hope one day to be able to get another lefty American Std. Strat (like this used one in Brampton, photo #4) to make it another “reverse Hendrix”!  Although the last time I did that I found it VERY challenging to play (and there’s about 20 reasons why, which I won’t go into here!) Maybe I’ll stick to a cheaper lefty “Standard” (like the one in photo #3).   I like the blue better too.  :D

Our current inventory of Telecasters.  All priced to sell!  No, wait, actually it’s the opposite…they are priced to NOT sell!

  1. 2009 Fender American Standard Telecaster, Factory Special Run in fiesta red with matching headstock.  Your price: $2,799.99.  (regular price: $2,800.99).  You save: $1.00!) 
  2. 2005-ish Fender Custom Shop ‘67 Telecaster Relic, Shoreline Gold.  Your price: $4501.99  (regular price: $4,502.00).  You save:  $0.01!)
  3. 1968 Fender Telecaster (vintage…NOT a reissue), blonde.  Your price: $9,500.98 (regular price: 15,000.99.  You save:  $5,500.01!)
  4. 2014 homemade DeeBee-Caster™ Custom, candy apple red.  Your price: $22,000.00 (regular price: $44,000.00.  You save a WHOPPING $22,000.00!  This is the deal of the century!  You’d be crazy NOT to buy this guitar!)
  5. 1998 Fender Custom Shop ‘60 Custom Telecaster, sunburst.  Your price: $7,250.00 (regular 7,249.00.  You save:  -$1!)

And yes, I am DEFINITELY kidding.  PLEASE DO NOT send angry “asks” telling me my Teles are overpriced and I am an idiot (I am already aware of both these facts!)

Here is my homage to the 60th Anniversary of the Stratocaster.  From my last visit to Cosmo Music, just north of Toronto, Canada.

All of the above are new custom shop models…and priced as such!  You could either buy an relatively inexpensive car or, with the same money, buy any 2 - 3 of these guitars!
