1983 Fender Marble Telecaster Bowling Ball

Good condition, 6,5/10, the weight is 3,6 kg,
sunlight has faded the finish somewhat and given
this guitar a unique look, a couple of larger
dents in the finish/wood on the side of the neck
and a few small ones on the edge of the headstock,
otherwise clean, no case included, this is a real
modern collectors item as it is one of only 8pc
Telecasters ever made in this finish
gold-silver-white, and only one of 300pc Bowling
Ball Strats/Teles that Fender made in 1983, this
guitar has all original parts, including part of
the original inspection tag from the factory, the
history of the guitar is that the Swedish
gentleman who brought us this guitar bought it at
Mannys Music Store in New York back in 1987 and
has owned it since, more info from online: There
were actually three different marble swirl styles:
one that is predominantly red, one that is
predominantly blue, and one that is a
predominantly gold. Only 250 of these guitars were
made: 108 in the red-black-white swirl; 105 in the
blue-black-yellow swirl; and, 37 in the
gold-silver-white swirl. 50 Telecasters using
these finishes were also produced: 21 red, 21
blue, and 8 gold. The man behind the marble finish
was Darren Johansen, an outside vendor who
developed the process and showed it to Fender. By
the time the initial 300 instruments were made,
Fender-CBS was in the process of becoming
Fender-FMIC and further use of the finish wasn t
pursued.

Price: SEK 42000
