This 1964 Oscar Teller nylon string acoustic guitar has quite a history. While recording Peter Gabriel’s first solo album, we rented this guitar to use during the sessions. I loved it and would noodle on it when I wasn’t working. Robert Fripp played this incredible fast-picking part, as only Fripp could do, on this guitar in the song “Humdrum”.

There was a party after the album was finished and this guitar was given to me by Bob Ezrin and Peter. I still have the little card in the glove box. I later used this guitar on the Alice Cooper hits ‘I Never Cry’ and ‘You and Me’ plus Japanese Artist Nobuteru Maeda’s ‘Hard Pressed’. I used it on my solo album The Deacon and countless other recordings.

The guitar is getting quite fragile now. It’s 50 years old and has done a lot of work....scratched and dinged, but it’s a beautiful sounding guitar. I think it’s time it made it to a collector...to not be played any more.

It’s too fragile and it should be kept for its history. This guitar is for very serious collectors only and I hope someone who really loves guitars with a real history will give this guitar a great home of honor. Thanks to you all and Blessings...steve
