This is one of two Identical Telecasters I own. The necks are very old `58 slapboards. The bodies are swamp ash with laminated maple tops. I use old Broadcaster pickups in the bridge position and Gibson P.A.F.'s up by the neck. Both these Teles were built by Chris Lukasik, a wonderful luthier in Orlando, Florida.


My main steel string is this 1997 Alvarez Yairi. It has a solid cedar top and rosewood back and sides. I've played dozens of Alvarez' over the years, but this one really stands out!!!


While working on my B.A. degree in Classical Guitar it seemed this was the only instrument that came out of the case. This is a 1988 Asturias Classical and was hand built in Kyushu, Japan. It has a solid spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, and an Ebony fingerboard.
