In 1987 my longtime friend Jeff Ross introduced me to the “Holy Trinity” at G&L guitars -Sales manager Dale Hyatt, the “G” George Fullerton and the man himself, Leo Fender. Desert Rose Band was starting to tour and have chart success nationally, as well as appearing often on TV. Always looking for some good promotion, on the recommendation of Jeff they presented me with a natural-finished ASAT model guitar, their answer to the Telecaster. Although I really did like the guitar quite a bit I was reluctant to use it onstage, but when I finally did it quickly became my main stage guitar.
