I am a Telecaster player. And like some here, I follow a newer sprout on a great tree. G&L is my brand of choice, mainly because I just like the feel, but, also... it was a continuation of a story. My latest ASAT has a certificate with the signature of Phyllis Fender on it. It may seem like a gimmick to many, but, for me her signature was a stamp of approval. I, personally, can’t see that she, or G&L would greatly profit from her signature. What I do see is a wife affirming that she approved of her husbands connection with his last gig. I read news in regard to Mrs. Fender in the past few days. I will leave that to those who know better. For me, I like story’s of Leo and Phyllis. They seem to be happy stories.
