Let's put that into context: if your grandfather was musically inclined as a young man, he would have wanted one too.
Here is the Fusebox Telecaster (a 1976 model) and it's much the same as a 1956 or 2006 version.
A design remaining basically unchanged since 1949 must make it one of the most perfectly realised products ever. What other functional device designed in 1949 hasn't become a relic or evolved beyond recognition?
