I know, right!?!? ..blows my mind!! When people come in my shop with rings on, I tell ’em they have to remove them first. ..even if they’re just picking up a Squier.

i dont know but he pushes his weight on it,it is a guitar not a table

David Fisher @ 5:29 pm #

How would that harm anything?

Meh, I’ve played plenty of 50’s and earlier guitars. I view them as toys, not relics to be placed on a shelf. I don’t baby my ’59 Jazzmaster at all.

Lol at the people freaking out about him damaging it. You’re lucky it’s not mine, I’d rock the shit out of that guitar. 😉

Albert Collins was the only player I ever heard of that left the ash tray on his guitar.

Overpriced is in the wallet of the beholder,I believe that dude will only go up in worth, I think it would be a good investment, what might this guitar be worth to say brad paisleys grandson when hes 40, just sayin.

tickmann @ 1:08 am #

All I could hear was his ring banging new dents into the neck…

You can’t go far wrong with a Telecaster. Good design, great sound.

thrashkleinmice @ 1:49 am #

Isn’t the ashtray supposed to be some kind of wrist-rest?

axeman1 @ 2:19 am #

skillzdatkillz900 @ 3:19 am #

aha nice, and likewise with me wanting to own a fender select telecaster one day. they’re the perfect combination of both brands!

I hear what you’re saying man. Much respect. I also love Gibson guitars. I have always been into Fenders, but one day I will get a Les Paul for sure.
