    That’s quite a long time! I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of change in the area. I’m 3rd generation AZ born myself, but only about half your age.

    I have a 98 tele deluxe as well. Wish it had the rosewood neck like yours though! Love the tort binding.

    yes,iam a rosewood or ebony neck guy,i like the looks of maple,but for some reason it does'nt feel quite right to me.And ya the tort binding really sets this axe apart.The fire in the color just jumps at you
