Drummer “Hammerin” Harold Sawyer’s little brother sold me this guitar back in my “Cadillac Cowboy” days.  Also known as “The Telecaster Army”, the band featured triple Tele’s played through Fender Twins performing Buck Owns, Hank Senior, Bob Wills and Merl Haggard very fast and loud!  I believe the body is ash through it weighs a ton.  Of course, it has the classic Telecaster bite.

I played this guitar on the road for 5 years with one of the Midwest’s rowdiest bands with virtually no damage.  A couple years after I left the road, I was sitting in with some friends when the strap button popped and the guitar hit the concrete floor putting the crack in the lower bout near the knobs. How annoying is that?

It was played through the 1950’s Gibson Discoverer amp on this project.

Used on: Tequila, Bloody Williamson
