What makes a guitar great in your eyes? Is it the weight, the tone, the neck, the year in which it was made or is the only measure to be ecstatically pleasing?
I ponder these kinda things all the time. I wonder on if a certain year the guitar ...details
A little known fact; Out of the three hundred 40th Anniversary Teles made, Ray and I have sold three to Keith Urban himself. Yep, that's right people, not dropping names here (who am I bullshittin'?) I am, but I digress.

Tired of playing that plain, blonde '73 Tele that you inherited from your uncle Glen? Your back giving you fits after only two sets in the club? Then step right up gentlemen because I have the solution to your problem and the new toy of your dreams.
What's that? You just don't have an extra 50 grand laying around to get you an original 54 Strat? I can dig it, but have no worries, Ray and I got you covered like hash browns at a decrepit Waffle House. What we have here is a Master built Todd Kraus ...details
