    Why would GC even take that in on a trade?

    Should have put a zipper by the controls, then did a painting of "sticky fingers" on the back. Maybe next year, with my 1 Tele build a year habit.

    Someone at that GC wanted to p*ss off the boss, and took it in.

    May end up in the MoMA in NYC, some day.

    501s have so much better tone than skinny jeans.

    I wish this was under $100, I have a GC rewards certificate and I would totally buy this for a friend as a gag gift. As in, one literally likely to make them gag :ROFLMAO:

    I have heard of a tuxedo telecaster, would that particular guitar be a Canadian tuxedo telecaster?

    In defense of that otherwise atrocious "blue jean" Tele, I will say that the CY serial number neck does have some interesting figuring. Those made in Taiwan Tele necks can be really sweet. Not two fiddy sweet, but worth it if the frets are good, the electronics are maybe upgraded, and you can get the entire thing for under a hundred bucks.

    Maybe I'm strange, but I kinda like it. Not looking to buy or anything (and the price is a bit high), but I see the appeal.

    The dude missed the mark. If he'd gone for something like this jeans/plaid shirt combo, over a flesh-toned undercoat with a painted navel, and an anatomically correct camel toe, also with maybe some peach fuzz near crotch on the deluxe model, these guitars would have flown off the shelves:

    I can clearly see a telecaster under all that, can't you?
