Something to think about.
What would you be playing if Leo had not been in the guitar business? If the Tele was never invented. Would you have latched onto one of the hollow bodies? Would you even have considered another instrument or would you not have ventured into music at all?
And for the Gibson guys, consider that Gibson would not have created the Les Paul, as we know it, if not for the Telecaster's popularity.
What would today's music sound like.
