(Pink Floyd) Syd Barrett: 1962 Fender Esquire "Mirrored Telecaster" - Miniature G
Syd bought this guitar in early 1965, allegedly agreeing to pay for it on instalments. He would use this guitar as his main until late 1967, when he purchased a white Fender Telecaster with a rosewood neck.
The guitar was originally white, but in late 1966 Syd wrapped it in silver melinex plastic film, and glued couple of circular polished metal discs on the body. He was most likely inspired to do this by Mike Leonard, a landlord of the house where members of Pink Floyd lived in 1965.
Metal disks on the guitar eventually became worn and Syd for one reason or another slowly stopped using the Esquire, and switched to a white Telecaster by late 1967. He allegedly left the guitar outside in the rain one night, and this resulted in some of the hardware becoming oxidized – so that may as well be one of the reasons.
