    Those are just Telecasters...a slab of wood with a next screwed on. Heck, I got a yellow one of those sitting on a stand in there, but it doesn't have the fancy paint job or the mirrors on it. Also doesn't have...what do they call it...the same pedigree. I'll take that into consideration, knock 20% off right now, and offer it up for $40,000. Aw what am I saying, you're all my BGU buddies, so I'll knock another 20% off. So a full 40% off a Telecaster for my BGU pals...$30,000. And I'll even hand deliver it to you this weekend. Let me know if anybody wants pics of said beauty, and I'll even send you those to help you decide. Of course they'll be $10 a piece.

    50 grand for a Tele!! Unless Mr Page played those exact ones during his LZ days, I'm sticking with it's just a slab of wood with a neck screwed on.

    ymmv

    The first one is downright ugly. It's like they went down to Home Depot and bought some of those furniture caster cups and glued them on. :whistle::rolleyes:

    Snarf- Yours sounds like a real bargain! Does it come with a hard-shell case??

    The official Jimmy Page Tribute dragon Tele retails for $1.4k. No idea who these people are nor why they think the same guitar is worth $50k. Yikes. :confused:

    Fender Custom Shop turns out $50,000 master built guitars because people buy them and because they tend to get a lot of press and free Internet publicity. It is a win win for Fender.

    Ah. Skimmed one of the ads, the Fender Custom Shop part didn't sink in. I assumed these Wild West folks were behind them, not just reselling.

    Yes, there is a good reason to make them. Just don’t ask me to justify why people buy them.

    I've never spent $2000 on one guitar. Maybe if I stepped it up a bit, I'd find one I could play... shrug-smiley (50x50) (2).jpg
