    Some of this stuff is current but back in the 1960's or even the 70's, videos of guitarists were nonexistant or very rare. I love the old guys like Keith Ricards all of the way up to contemporary guitarists that owe some of their success to our favorite guitar! I love my Teles. I think that I'm gonna be buried with my Squier Pro Tone.

    I hope that Johnny Depp regardless the star that he's become, realizes the opportunity he had doing this & a few other videos. What a crew!!

    G.E. Smith with Mike Bloomfield's monster Telecaster. Just pure coolness!

    G.E. Smith not only had the dream job, playing the licks from some of the best songs made on SNL & also played with some of the hottest music of the 80's but used a Telecaster on most of it. Now he has a signature Telecaster! Cool as hell!!

    Sorry about the slight mess up. Restarted the computer & it seems to be working right. I did find a great one while I had a couple minutes to think.
