  • Aims Telecaster

    Built by Aims Instruments, Distributed and Promoted by Randall Instruments ca.1974-1976.

    (Don Randall of Fender)



    it sure does "very closely" resemble the Fender.



    such a sweet `34 year old Telecaster, where are the survivors !... i've only seen 2 of these ever.

    ...is this the last one on the planet ?

                That is quite an impressive likeness, for sure. Nice looking guitar!

                      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.

                    Any info on the WEb on AIM's? Never heard of them, the guitar looks great though.

                          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.





                          makes ya go humm' ... does me anyway.

                            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.
