Schecter PETE TOWNSHEND Telecaster.

Hello, this is a guitar that needs no introduction: the Schecter Pete Townshend Telecaster. (Perhaps the other most recognized guitar is Eddie's 5150). Originally introduced to Pete by his guitar tech, the late-great Alan Rogan, Pete used this model from '79 (Concert for Kampuchea) to '88 (British Music Awards). The original is now on display at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.

This guitar is in very good condition with only a few blemishes on the body from normal wear (see photos). There are no major dings, gashes on this guitar. The satin finish neck is blemish free and straight with minimal fret wear. As Pete himself has commented back in '82, “These Schecter guitars are superbly made and easy to play and they sound glorious…....Don't be fooled by imitations of old guitars, these Schecters are unique!”
