First post on this board so be kind.....

I'm looking for an online picture that is in the Ben Watson "Complete Guide To".

It's a colour pic of FZ playing a beautiful sunburst Tele. No idea what it is from but I couldn't find anything in google apart from one b/w pic of FZ with a white tele.

Not terribly helpful but there's this Telecaster guitar forum post with a photo... can anyone verify the story about Frank playing a borrowed Telecaster on the night of the 1970 casino fire?

http://www.tdpri.com/forum/telecaster-discussion-forum/54072-frank-zappa-his-tele.html

well for some reason the link's not working but it's the first or second hit when you put "Frank zappa" + telecaster into Google.

(I'm still waiting for those geeks to make an FZ tribute banner...)

Thanks - unbelievable site this.

It's a great photo but I did a double take when I realised it was a telecaster.

I checked on tdpri already, that's a great site as well. I could only find the white tele, not the sunburst. Oh well.

I'm not really a guitar buff, but could this be a telecaster?

From the liner notes of YCDTOSA #3 we know that FZ played a stock Telecaster at the Rainbow in 1971 (CD2,-->King Kong).

From a comment on that thread:

flatheadtele wrote:
(he sold that tele to flo in exchange for flo's acoustic (which can be heard on "pink napkins" from SUNPYG box set)

Can anyone confirm this?

No tele there either.

Aye, the guitar strap looks the same as the one on the other photo well.
