Used – Bill Crook Paisley Telecaster (2014)

Serial Number: Bill Crook Paisley Telecaster
Weight: 6 lbs 13 oz

So how did I get started building paisley guitars? When Brad Paisley signed his first record deal and started touring, he asked me to build a backup guitar that played and sounded like his beloved vintage ’68 paisley, but in blue. I agreed to do it, not knowing the hurdles and failed experiments that lay ahead of me.

I watched the ink run off the paper, the solvent melt the paper, and the finish crack for no reason, but finally I came up with a technique that worked. The blue paisley debuted in Brad’s 2002 “I’m Gonna Miss Her” video, and I thought that was the end of my experimentation with paisley finishes. I didn’t see it coming!
