    One person for me... Mike Bloomfield. Hearing him play with Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival is what did it for me.

    Robbie Robertson of The Band - I'm surprised he hasn't been mentioned yet (unless I missed it)

    Arlen has a built-in B-bender for every axe he plays!! Sweet! Wish I could afford a Louis Electric amp....

    First one I saw must have been Hee Haw.
    I bought mine because of Wilko Johnson and Bill Frissell.

    Springsteen's modified Esquire was all it took for me. I wanted one from the moment I first saw it on the album cover of Born to Run. IMG_0691.JPG

    I know it was mostly acoustic, but Eddie's work on the movie "Into the Wild" was awesome. Love the movie as well.

    Agreed. I never wanted a Tele until I saw this in the "Classic Albums The Band" program.
    That was the moment that changed everything for me.

    For me it was mostly Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, John 5, Keith Richards and The Boss.
