For those who pay attention to the Dead, some of you may have noticed since the reunion that Bobby often plays a Tele for parts of some shows. If you already know the story behind that Telecaster (or have read the link below) - stop reading here. If you don't, you might find the story at the following link interesting. I ran across it last night. The story of how Bobby came to play that Tele told me some things I didn't know and seemed kind of touching.

The story leaves out one very interesting fact. The Tele is a '56! Here's another story about it from last year's S.F. Chronicle. (I remembered reading this in the back of my head, did a search and found it right away. Ain't the internet amazing for some things?)

Bill, tgo

here is something that's not as poetic, but very interesting when it comes to Bob's guitars.
