Why this rainbow of telecasters..? Well a lot of people are asking me what color is what, or people ask me to paint a color what in the end, for them is a other color interpretation. So I had some free time, and bodies to spare and I made 5 teles, each with a typical color. These are the colors most asked for. Of course each color can be made slightly darker or lighter, this depends on what you prefer. But basically a tele bought way back in 1950 looked like the first “blonde finish” and during time, they became the others. This depends on where they where played and kept over the years. Also during the paint proses in the 50’s they where not all painted the same, they had no computers those days and everything was mixed “the paint” and painted by hand, by different people, with all different ways of painting. And so not all guitar bodies where treated with the same amount of layers of paint, layers of clear coat, sanding etc. etc. This has been the major influence of how a guitar body looks now a day. At first the looked almost all the same, but 60 years later each body, because of these influences, has aged different and each one of them has become unique.
