    Years ago a neighbor and friend with editing skills, grabbed this photo from a Jeff Beck album and made it suitable for framing. It's now framed and hanging on the wall directly to my right. The perfect combination of leather, denim, an old Telecaster and fingers that obviously work on hot rods AND play guitar make it IMHO an absolutely perfect photo! I would love to use this as as an avatar because I wear denim, leather, play a Telecaster, and work on hot rods, BUT, I don't think I'm worthy!

    My point with that was, I wasn't sure if @Paulie_Boy knew who was holding the Tele in the picture. In other words, that's Nancy Wilson, not just any ol' 'dame' with a guitar.

    Minutia, but the lead player here ( Roger Fischer?) Is playing a Travis Bean electric.
    Similar to what Jerry Garcia was playing in 1976- great sound!

    I dunno, but zoom lenses in general are pretty good for multieffect units.

    I was hoping for a "Worst Tele Photo Ever" thread. I could participate in that! :p
