    This might interest you:

    Over the years, many people have asked about our father's guitars; do you still have them? Are you going to sell them? The answer is -- they've been in storage!

    Now it's been 21 years since he passed away and the time has finally come to part with them, because it makes no sense to keep these pieces of history stored in a closet. None of us play guitar (not that I haven't tried, but practicing is not my strong suit!). These instruments should continue to make music like they have for many decades. So they are going up for auction.

    Heritage Auction will be handling all the details starting on today. www.ha.com

    Over the last couple of weeks, I've been putting together some of my father's articles from Guitar Player Magazine and matching them to the piece of music played and each instrument that is being sold. As painful as it is to say goodbye to the guitars, at least we have the music to remember them by.

    The first video is from one of my father's favorite compositions he played on, written by James Horner for the score of "Field of Dreams". TT's choice of instrument that day was the Classical Guitar built by the supremely talented luthier, Greg Brandt.

    Even if you're not interested in buying anything from the auction, I hope you enjoy listening to the music. And if you know of any guitar player or guitar aficionado that might be interested, please share the information.

    As you'll see, some of the instruments are very affordable. Guitars, guitar bags, amps and other memorabilia.

    Enjoy.
    The Tedesco Family

    I saw that yesterday on Facebook. His son Denny has a page known as 'The Wrecking Crew'. It's dedicated to all the legendary studio musicians his dad played as depicted in his documentary film, The Wrecking Crew". http://www.magpictures.com/thewreckingcrew/

    You may have noticed that none of Tommy's trusty Telecasters are on the list.

    If you click on any of the instruments shown you will be linked to the auction website where more instruments are shown......but still no Fenders!

    The D'Mini is an interesting undersized and, obviously short scale, solid body electric.
