Pete Anderson "Muddy Caster" (Telecaster/Esquire)

  • Price:$1900.00

hello, up for sale is pete anderson's "muddy caster". for those of you who know this guitar, you are aware of the history and mojo of this particular instrument. mr. anderson had this built in the mid 80's and it was his main slide guitar.

the guitar features a warmoth maple neck and rosewood board ("boat neck profile - feels like a baseball bat), with gotoh locking tuners. please note, the locking tuners were a recent addition. the frets are tall/skinny. all of pete's guitars features dunlop 6105's. the frets on this guitar are close but i can't say if there that exact type. the body is ash and features some nice, natural checking.  as for the artwork, this was done personally by pete. it was a tribute to one of his heroes.

and the pick up was custom wound by seymour duncan. and this was done way before there was a "custom shop". pete and seymour have been friends for over 35 years and pete asked for something "loud" and this is what we got.

i was going to restring the guitar and set it up for regular playing but pete wanted me to keep it "as is". it's set up with high action for slide playing in open "g".

the guitar will be shipped in a gig bag and properly packed and will come with a signed letter of authenticity.

please email me with any questions you may have. buyer to pay for all shipping and handling charges. figure a flat rate of $50 within the continental us. international buyers please email me for a quote to your location. thank you.

please note: pete is still the owner of all the items we'll be listing. i'm pete's personal assistant and handle his gear and ebay auctions. every year,  he goes through his gear locker and decides what stays and what go's. this year see's him moving a few of his prized possessions.
