    Default Roy Buchanan's Tele at skinners

    No Mandolin content, Roy Buchanan's Fender Telecaster is on the block at Skinners this month. Estimate $75,000.oo-$100,000.oo.

    Roy was a favorite of mine growing up, what a player.

    Scared me...

    That's not "the" Tele ("Nancy"), but another he owned....

    Spruce, "Nancy" is the guitar on his album "Loading Zone", correct? I thought that this looked different.

    Yeah, Nancy was his main axe...
    I've got a whole gob of pics here somewhere...
    I was going to make a copy for a friend, saw it at the Fender museum, and snapped some pics....





    Surprising how good of shape it's in considering what it went through...
    Didn't even have a case for quite a few years....

    I remember seeing "Nancy" in a guitar shop in Maryland. Nancy had the "bullet" hole in the headstock. Rumored to have been put there by Roy to hang on the wall.
    I got to see Roy in Pittsburgh opening up for Mahavishnu Orchestra with Jean Luc Ponty - quite a night!

    Too bad there aren't more recordings........has anything come out in the last 5 or 7 years?
