    Behave yourself. They were just good friends.

    BTW, that's technically John Owen's Tele.

    It would probably have been a 1959 or 60, possibly a 61.

    If my memory serves, John Owen bought it in England in 61?

    It has a slab fingerboard (Fender used this for teles in 59-62) and a bridge drilled for regular (through the body stringing) and top loading. Fender ran out of the drilled for top loading bridges in 61 it seems...

    So, 1959 or 60 is likely.

    Cool old picture. Thanks.

    These gals appear to be a little more, um, lithe than the plaster casters.
