According to the "Prince's Telecaster" webpage (link)

"During the NAMM show in 1972, a telecaster was shown by a brand called H.S. AndersonThe brand name is just a name made up (although there is an American wood sculpturer known by this name) but the guitar excelled in building quality and playability. The guitars under this brand came from the ‘Morris’ factory which built for a lot of brands."

This is that guitar.It is on Ebay with a BIN of $7250 (link)

"This guitar was the original factory sample that the Morris Guitars East Coast reps (NHF Music, Inc.) took to various US dealer guitar shows when it was first introduced. (I used to teach guitar in high school and had a wholesale account with the rep firm - the owner offered to sell it to me after the trade show tours in 1972). 

It's a real beauty, as would be expected of the factory sample instrument. Has the original triangular hardshell case and even the "ashtray" bridge cover. Completely original, never modified or damaged"

You can see in the photo of Princes Hohner tele(bottom) that the Hohner logo was shaped to cover the HS Anderson logo's footprint.

Did you ever get your Harley Benton one of those WTR? Was it your one that went AWOL?
