1954 Fender "Blackguard" Telecaster # 4292 - Sold



This is my "Desert Island" Gittar...I bought it in 1980 and it is hands down the best guitar I have played or owned! Very lucky to have bought it back when things like this were affordable and slightly more plentiful! I saw Roy Buchanan a couple of times in the 70's and that's what got me real interested...By Mid 1954, the Fullerton factory produced 5500 Esquires, Broadcasters, Nocasters and finally Telecasters with the Serial Numbers stamped on the Bridge and with a Black Pickguard, known as "Blackguard" Teles, they are serious collectors items and are very valuable...It doesn't get any better than this!
