:oops:

well i've had a pretty crappy run of bad luck lately, to say the least...

anyway, it looks like it may turn around - some REALLY wierd and interesting luck in the past 48 hours has led to something really, really interesting and unique in the mail to me

it's also strange because yet again the date 9/11 continues to be a major operator in my life

here's a hint...

two more hints..

there's less than 900 of them

and they are the only production item Leo ever signed in his own hand (without a 'stamp')

:shock:

Was this a re-issue for the 35 anniversary of the Tele?

Nice. And it provides proof positive that Fender employs astrological principles that differ from those used in most of the Western world. Most Western astrologers use the Ptolemaic (tropical) zodiac, based on the equinoctes rather than the zodiacal constellations. To them "Leo" = 7-23 through 8-22.

But to those who apply a real-sky (sidereal) zodiac, "Leo" = 8-17 through 9-16.

Astrology's complete nonsense anyway, of course. But my brain runs Free Association Engine 1.3 and notices these things before I can stop it.

So: nice.

85?

The serial number indicates 1951-1952, what's his sig saying 85 for? Authentication?

Please more pics... :drool:

It's true, but the other clues were sufficient as well-- an '85 date would indicate that Leo was fairly hands-on in his new company and could have been expected to sign a unit. ;)

actually a friend who has three of them is sending it to me, this one has had two owners (i've got a pic of the two owners together) who were collectors. He's also included a copy of the book he wrote about guitar collecting, and it's signed by Phillis Fender and a bunch of other cool folks

the craziest part is that he's basically giving it to me for nothing :shock:

Well, your first post implied you'd had some crappy luck, so, Karma at it's finest I guess. Have fun, and post some tunes!
