Hi all, Sorry if this has been covered before or seems like a stupid question (I know he wrote the Telecaster book and others), but I have looked online as well as on this site, and other than a zombie thread from 2012 confirming that he as alive and well at that point in time, I can find no biography on the man. Just curious as to how he became the expert he is on guitars in general and Telecasters specifically. Did he work for Fender? Was this just pure academic investigation on his part? If so, where did he find the documentation for his book. Fender, in it's current incarnation, claims they did not receive production documentation from CBS. Did he go to CBS directly? What about Pre-CBS? Just curious and not casting aspersions or doubting his research, just amazed at the amount of technical information he was able to uncover and catalog in his book. So many people, myself included, have found answers to questions in his book that are little known even to many in the community here. I just wanted to know a little more about the man who did this amazing research. Thanks to you all here and to him.
