  1. Happy birthday, Joe! His ’66 Telecaster looks almost new here.


    “Strummer purchased the Tele used in 1975 with £120 he’d obtained in exchange for marrying South African national Pamela Moolman so she could become a British citizen. The instrument originally had a sunburst finish, but in 1976, just as the Clash were forming, Strummer took it to a car repair shop and had the body and pickguard sprayed with gray primer prior to applying a top coat of black automotive paint.”
