An original Telecaster master is still going strong and making phenomenal fun sounds on his guitar.  James Burton, the Elvis LIVE guitarist influenced generations of rock guitar royalty with his perfectly phrased late-'50s/early-'60s Tele work with the travelin’ man Ricky Nelson, and his later stints with the legendary Elvis Presley, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello along with many others only furthered his revered elder-statesman status. His was the first signature Telecaster more.  Today's James Burton Telecaster is as fiery as ever, with three pickups, special switching, gold hardware, gorgeous paisley-flame finishes and more.
