    Default Happy Birthday Leo

    Hey Guys/Gals,

    Leo would have been 100 today. Since he's the man responsible for all of us being here (on this forum) today, I thought it'd be nice to recognize him. Thanks Leo! You have no idea how grateful we all are ...

    Happy Birthday Mr. Fender.

    If not for you, I would have the finest guitar ever built.........the Telecaster.

    WOW [COLOR=black][COLOR=black][COLOR=black]That's[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] a great picture of the Man. A few weeks ago someone posted asking about date markings on the heal of there [COLOR=black][COLOR=black][COLOR=black]Strat[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] neck. I have two great books. The [COLOR=black][COLOR=black][COLOR=black]Stratocaster[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] Chronicles and the sole of tone. Both by Tom Wheeler. If you are a Fender fanatic you have to read these books. Ive read both a number of times and it makes me feel like I'm right there with them. I didn't find an answer for the poster but I'm about half way through the book again.

    Gotta love The Man. I played my Strat this weekend in his honor.
    "Life's too short not to enjoy great tone."

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
