My Mom (RIP) bought me an Aims Tele back in 1974 for $170. A quality guitar, heavy, with the famous Tele sound. It brings back fond memories of jamming in a garage band when I was a teen. I bought a cheezy multi-colored pick guard for it (probably de-valued it somewhat, but who cares). I forget what happened to it. I don't think there were many produced.....I've never seen another. As copies go, it was a very good one.
yep, jerry picker's is #2 of 2 i mentioned having ever seen. ( :
hope to see him chime in here sometime.
it's a long story that goes back to the begining of leo fender and don randall before cbs to after cbs into the mid `70s when G&L, Randall Instruments and this elusive Aims Instruments apparently decided they could bring back the quality cbs was destroying.
G&L makes a nice tele but it is far from a copy as the Aims was.
man, threads get swept under the rug faster around here than at home... <g>
With a community this large I had hoped there would be others with a greater knowledge about this guitar than i have, or maybe I would find some other people interested in unearthing this some what overlooked piece of music history.
