    I know Mike Stern was playing Strats (with Miles) and Teles in the early eighties, are there others that came before him? I'm drawing a blank on anyone before that. These days o' course, Frisell, Lage, Matthew Stevens etc. and probably more youngsters coming up inspired by them.

    If we're talking Gatton and Jimmy Bryant, then certainly Redd V., and our own great Jim C.
