Coxon signature telecaster

Post by Mark87uk » 16 Sep 2016, 00:00

Anyone on here own one? I was lucky enough to pick one up first time round. Such a lovely guitar, and ace to see Damon using it from time to time!

Oh yes, I remember first seeing it when Damon performed on Jimmy Kimmel during SXSW! That may have been the first time he used it, actually.

I have always wanted that guitar so fucking bad, but I can never find it for a decent price! I can hardly find it at all, really. Depressing :(

I got mine back in 2013, I paid about £530 for it from my local music store, amazing guitar with a great sound to it. And as you said it is nice to see if playing live by Damon, although he doesn't really play it much does he :)

The term 'plays it' is defo quite generous!!

Just always thought although not many about it was quite cheap for a signature guitar!

That's true, it isn't insanely priced. What's tough for me is shipping it to America :( it's such a sexy guitar... I bet it makes the wielder feel nearly just as sexy! :P

It's certainly better priced than some, although I do love the johnny marr jaguar's and even though I detest fender basses, the Mark Hoppus signature is lovely, although should be in pink really

I wasn't very good at playing guitar when I bought one, and still not great but it helps when you can get those notes just right and it does have a Coxon sound to it.

I bought mine just to own really, never really considered playing it, and still looks as it did the day I bought it :lol:

Yeah, heaven forbid someone might just be starting to learn. Or just want the pleasure of owning it as an object. :roll:

Oh my god it's like you took the words right out of my mouth! You know what really gets to me??? When parents buy books for their 5 year old kids. Umm, hellloooo, that child does not know how to read and will obviously not appreciate that copy of 'Pop Up Jungle'! They won't understand the delicate word play contained within the pages, or the beautiful engineering behind the pop up sequences. A 5 year old won't even understand how much effort has gone into the illustrations, or the science to how the book has been printed (how could a child understand the entire 576 years of history since the printing press was invented?!)... it really makes me cross. :evil:

Rich, let us know how the guitar goes. :)

actually when I first heard Ian Dury's Sex'n'drugs'n'rock'n'roll I thought he said:

"Here's a little piece of advice
You're quite welcome it is free
Don't do nothing that is cut price
You know what a wank you'll be
They will try their tricky device
Trap you with the ordinary
Get your teeth into a small slice
The cake of liberty"

only when I looked it up (in rising to FLM's bait) I saw the correct version ^^
