I could be wrong cause I haven't looked into it closely, but to me it seems that this is the - no disrespect to the brand itself - "disposable" guitar as well as stand-in for blue. He doesn't give it away every time someone has played it, but every so often he does, and as I've seen from a rig rundown there is only one of them in Billie's stand at a time, and whenever he does give it away I don't see him running out to get yet another copy of it to spare any original tele he might keep to himself; which all leads me to believing that it's not a valuable guitar to Billie Joe, not affection-wise and probably not economically either. It's a litter of black telecasters, probably tweaked a little bit to fit the band's sound, and they are meant to be given away.
On a side note, telecasters are so damn ugly!
No Svan right the person doesnt get the tele
They get a Epi LP Jr that the band signs at the end of the show
Ive seen 3 of them on ebay all different sellers and locations with the same story
And I agree Teles arent good looking but the sound is great
