Rory owned a LOT of guitars. The vast majority collected dust. That is not the Tele he favoured and used most. That he merely may have owned it, ... not interesting enough for me.

Now that blond Tele or black Tele or the modded solidbody Gretsch or the Melody Maker with the humbucker, .... different story.

True words!

BTW, I think the black Tele was a modded Esquire. Does that sound familiar to anybody? :hmm

Agree with the previous post on the status of this particular guitar in Rory’s arsenal. Was just thinking about the Crossroads auctions and some of the guitars and amps Clapton sold there. Many would be similar in status to this guitar. However, this one is being sold for profit and not charity.

It would have to have a signed COA from Donal Gallagher before I'd believe it belonged to Rory.
