    Description

    The Cars: Elliot Easton's 1975 Fender Telecaster Guitar used on 'The Cars' and 'Candy-O' LPs. This Fender Telecaster is one of two instruments used by Elliot Easton to record The Cars' first two LPs, 'The Cars' and 'Candy-O'. He also used this instrument for live performances to promote the records. Elliot had famed pickup designer Seymour Duncan modify the guitar for use on tour. Modifications include a 1950s style see-through butterscotch finish on the body, a custom Duncan bridge position pickup, vintage style brass bridge saddles and Kluson tuners, and a black/white/black pickguard. Included with this auction lot is a Fender hard shell case, Elliot's handwritten letter of authenticity, and a copy of the DVD 'The Cars Live' signed by Elliot. The DVD shows Elliot using this guitar in live performance.
