Insane that this stuff can still be discovered! I know it's not a Burst, but wow! Garret Park Guitars, in Maryland, just found/scored a real new old stock, in the original box, '69 Tele and a matching 68 Pro Reverb. Crazy awesome find! Originally sold by Washington Music Center. Both music shops were local institutions where I grew up. Cool to see them making big news today.

Two days after moon landing.

Only way it could get better is if a nos Katherine Ross jumped out of that box!

Amazing find

Look how the pickguard seems to have shrunk away from the screws. Maybe because there's been zero air circulation to solidify the plastic? Too bad it didn't get to make music in 68-69... those were good years for rock.

Whoever bought it will love and cherish it, but it will never see the smoke, beer, and sweat of a stage. It will die a virgin.
