Hello gorgeous! I've been thinking I needed a Telecaster in my life for some time now (in fact Julie gave me an envelope with some cash last year for my birthday to get one), but sometimes you just gotta wait till the right one comes along.
This is a 62R - meaning it is a reissue of a 1962 model Fender Telecaster. I bought it last week from a young blues guitarist named TJ. It is a pretty sweet instrument and it certainly is pretty!
I"m not sure if this was a midlife crisis moment, or a pre-chemo/hospital move.. but either way, it was fun to bring it home and play. Part of my thinking is I can take this to the hospital and play it quietly/privately with maybe headphones so I don't feel like I'm performing every time I pick up a guitar.... besides, it just looks so damn hot right?
