“I have one of the best, no THE best guitar Ed ever made, done in a double-wide trailer in Hillsboro, TX in the year 2000. I love this axe, a custom Jazz Singer, it is simply the missing link in any venue, be it Big Band Freddy Green style, or Combo comp and solo. What a creative pair of hands on my friend Ed, thanks for helping me realize my dreams.”
