    Guitar greats that you just don't get?

    LOL! There are two years since I was last on the TDPRI, but obviously some things never change ... ;-)

    Don Felder on Glenn Frey

    At least Felder wrote the chord progressions and the guitar solo. He rarely finished any song that he started writing. But that guitar solo is one of the best in the history of rock, so that counts for something, I guess. :wink:

    NGD tele 63

    I agree with sonny wolf (I mostly do). The only thing I would change is the pickguard. I'd go for an all-white 1-ply. But that's just me. And Steve Cropper ... :wink:
