“This is my ’99 Fender Custom Shop Tele with a Parsons/White B-Bender. It was my first guitar with a bender, so there was a bit of a learning curve – but now I prefer them. The bridge pickup is also fantastic – I always love plugging into a new amp and hearing those first few notes of rich, fat, Tele twang! I know I’ll have this guitar ‘til I’m gone.” - Tony Pierce, guitarist for Pierce Avenue #TeleTuesday

“This is my Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster - the previous owner was in a Swedish rock band and had toured with it. My Grandpa is from Sweden, which drew me to it. I felt like the guitar had a story. The first time I played it, it was an immediate connection - I knew it was THE guitar. It can sound exactly like a Strat or a Tele - there’s some magic in the pickups.” - Stephan Hogan

“I had the idea to build a guitar when I was 16. I wanted to combine a Brian May guitar, Fender Jagmaster, Gibson Firebird, a Les Paul and an old B.C. Rich Warlock. I made Two-Tone, my guitar, because I had a need. It shaped my entire language of guitar.” - Arielle
