    I picked this one because I knew the former owner of this guitar (who sold it to Tom) and actually played it once.

    Everything I have seen on John 5 makes him appear to be a real class act. I'm not generally a 'heavy ' music listener but it never ceases to amaze me how technically capable he is and how receptive he is to questions and comments from the people interviewing him. For someone with such an aggressive appearing stage presence, he seems quite down to earth once the show is over.

    I recall a guitar centre video where he plays a number of historically significant guitars and he approached each of them as if he almost felt unworthy of playing them... then he proceeded to play out a phrase completely appropriate for the provenance provided around each instrument. His country chops are phenomenal. Of course, top it off with the fact that he's a tele affectionado and there isn't much more that can be said!

    Great photo you managed to snap! Is that interview you were writing available somewhere to read?

    So, what’s the story on that Telecaster - what model/year?

    I loved that Telecaster and even set up my Muddy Waters Telecaster to look like it...

    Yes, if you didn’t know that’s the same Telecaster

    The former owner was a local sound engineer and he was a little short of cash and brought it in to the music store my former bandmate used to run. He was showing it and said he was going to try to get it to Tom's "people." I got to check it out at the store. As I recall it was a mid '60's Tele (I'm thinking '66 but not sure). Totally stock. The next time I saw him he said he'd been successful in getting it to Tom.

    Cool photo! But is the guy on the left yawning? In my head, I'll just pretend he's screaming with excitement. :p

    Thanks Paul,

    I think that’s the same one he played at the Concert For George....

    Merle and Ben Haggard. Photo is from a Dallas Guide Live article, but this was his last show I ever got to attend.

    Drove to Dallas and back in the pouring rain on Sunday, November 15th, 2015. We had to stand up in the venue the entire time, but it was worth every minute.

    As for the OP's criterion of posting pics that portray the tele player's "connection" to his or her instrument, what does that even mean?
