Looks to me like Graham has a new 72 Telecaster Custom. Does anyone know anything about it? I suspect he bought it in Hong Kong.

It seems to be the same "Blackie" 1972 Fender Telecaster Deluxe he's used always. Of course i might be wrong.

He's definitely had a custom for at least as long as Blur have been reunited.
I don't think I've seen that other sunburst tele before this tour, though.

I am not sure which guitar you guys are talking about, but he did mention in some of the interviews that he had a "new" one for the Hong Kong sessions that his guitar technician has put together for him?

That was a Strat. Possibly the black one he plays of Coffee & TV?

Do you find your 70s tele to be lighter than your newer one? I had a reissue custom tell and I eventually had to trade it coz it was breaking my back!

He's had a deluxe (2 wrhbs) for a long time but the custom (1 wrhbs 1 sc) seems very new on the block! They look very similar except the pick up configuration and the deluxe has the big strat headstock. I have a custom just like his myself. Mine is a reissue I wonder if his is an original. Looks new though. Yep he's also added a black strat recently and a sunburst tele. Bound. Looks like a 62 reissue or again maybe original! Being a guitar geek I'd like to know!
