Purple Time Guitar [TC1-457]

Postby 5.0 JOE on Thu Jan 17, 2008 6:49 pm

I have a Purple Time Electric Guitar that I picked up a while ago. I was wondering if anyone had anymore inoformation regarding it. The guitar has the marking TC1-457 stamp on the bottom of the neck. It is in the orginal case mark time in the upper left hand corner. I have pictures but, unsure of how to post them. Please help. Also, I was wondering do these guitars hold any value to them?

5.0 Joe, Welcome!
You can send the pics to me at Chris@TimeGuitars.com and I'll post for you. It sounds like you have a late Time Caster with a single pickup? And yes these guitars have value!

Thanks, Chris

Time Caster Model TC-1

Postby ChrisClark on Sat Jan 19, 2008 11:08 am

5.0 Joe,

This a Time Caster Model TC-1 from around 1984-86. It looks used! It could use a little love... :cry:

The TC-1's had a single Humbucker with a volume & tone. This one has been altered with different pickups [with rings] and switching. The Kahler has a locking nut which I had completely forgotten about.

The color is a purple which we first produced for Paul Devlin's Time guitar arsenal. He had several Time's in this color. It was kind'a his trademark. Paul lived in Venice beach, CA. All his guitars were stolen about 25 years ago. His Time Caster was a TC-9 with all the candy. I'm sure if he saw this guitar, he'd want to buy it in a heartbeat!

As far as worth... I haven't seen enough Times for sale to know the market value. Sorry...

Thanks for the pics,
Chris

I went to Essex Junction High School with Paul. He played in several Vermont bands before moving to Seattle [just before Grunge took off.] He then moved to Venice were he played in his own band 'MissUnderstood'. He did USO tours. He was also the catering manager for MTV among other things. He also was an unofficial Time Guitar rep in California. He has shown Time guitars to Eddie Van Halen, Judas Priest, Huey Lewis & the News, Quarterflash and many more. He also played in a bar band for years with Mick Fleetwood and Gary Busey! Yeah that Gary Busey...

WOW, Just when you thought it was safe to surf a guitar site...BAM There's Gary Busey!
I haven't seen Paul in about 9 years,
Chris

Hi! My first post here, I own a GS-12, #106. I'll send pix to the pix link. In the meantime here's one of the purple gs from California, on eBay last week, didn't sell.
