I think I just noticed this now but Syd Barret also had a white Telecaster with reflective circles.

Anyone else noticed that? Very odd coincidence, I guess it could have been a popular thing to add to guitars then.

best crotm ever.

Question, though:
Why is the Supro Thunderbolt ruled out?

Well, the Supro Page bought in '61 seems to be the same one he used for the first album, he supposedly bought it at Selmers Music in England with Albert Lee. The Thunderbolt didn't come out until '64. I guess technically that doesn't rule it out 100% but there's really nothing to back up the claim he even owned, yet alone used a Thunberbolt. I'm not even sure where the Thunderbolt suggestion originated.

Also another little bit about the Supros, Page always described it having a single 12" speaker. The Thunderbolt used a 15". The Coronado used two 10" speakers, the theory for the Coronado was he just modified it for one 12". I'm not aware of him ever mentioning swapping speakers in the Supro though, all we get from him is "a small Supro with a 12" speaker"

No. It's not the first time I've heard that either, it's not true. I'd like to know where that one got started.

I thought I read or herd somewhere that the dragon Tele was stolen. I guess where I herd or read that was wrong. Thanks for a great post.

Great job man. And whilst not on topic with the "classic" rock guitarists, but it just dawned on me that for upcoming CROTM's, if anyone knows who I'm talking about, They're going to have a hell of a time doing Josh Homme's (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, Desert Sessions)

Hmm going back through some interviews, Jimmy did indeed mention a friend screwing up the Dragon Tele's body by painting over it but it is NOT the body to the B-Bender Tele. Might have to go back and add that
