    Default Any love for Artlen Roth?

    Of all the incredible Tele masters I have loved through the years, including Danny Gatton, when it comes to tone and phrasing (volume knob swells included), Arlen has been my consistent favorite.

    And listen to him play the blues:

    He has released an incredible "Tele Masters" CD featuring many great guitar heroes, and it is well worth the price of admission.

    I post this because I will soon start a DIY post featuring a guitar I'm going to build for Arlen. Ironically, it will be a Strat, but either way, I find this to be an incredible opportunity to give back to a musician who has been inspiring and blowing me away for 40 years.

    Yes, Arlen Roth has long been one of the true Tele Masters, and the honor is well deserved! And what an honor for you to be chosen to build an axe for the man.

    I recently got the latest copy of Vintage Guitar, and the guy on the front cover is none other than Arlen Roth.
