Signature Telecaster section combined with separate article[edit]

The Signature Telecaster section is a duplicate of a separate article, James Burton Telecaster, so I'm consolidating the section into that article and cleaning it up a bit, and adding the article link under See also. Chuckiesdad (talk) 03:16, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Shocked that Burton is still at Start class[edit]

I can't say how amazed I am that the artists who backed up notable musicians from Elvis Presley, Ricky Nelson, and more don't have photographs, or even, a timeline that the reader can follow. Particularly for a guitarist that inspired so many others --Keith Richards!-- not to have much said in either the biography or the guitarist work group speaks volumes. [shaking my head] This is insane. I thought at first, "well, people just don't like The Allman Brothers Band, or they don't take to the Dixie Chicks", or whatever, but it appears that while bands like the Snow Patrol are FA-ranked, the pioneers of rock music and country music, too.. are being overlooked. Let me go find a photo of Burton and Glen D. Hardin while I ponder the preferences of Wikipedians! [throwing my hands up in the air!]--Leahtwosaints (talk) 20:47, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Still waiting for you Country music editors...[edit]

I am truthfully shocked that the whole period from the death of Elvis Presely is barely touched upon, yet, his critical role in helping launch Emmylou Harris' career after Gram Parsons death isn't even mentioned (he, along with Glen Hardin and Rodney Crowell, Albert Lee --it was a stellar lineup.) --Leahtwosaints (talk) 05:46, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Pink Paisley Telecaster[edit]

Officially the guitar is known as the Pink Paisley Telecaster, NOT the Red Paisley Telecaster. I tried changing it once, but it was changed back. http://www.james-burton.net/portal/component/content/53?task=view A Google Search http://www.google.com/search?q=%22red+paisley+telecaster%22&hl=en&biw=1280&bih=607&filter=0 yielded only six results for "Red Paisley Telecaster" none of which are related to James Burton's Pink Paisley, but to his current guitar. Does Wikipedia want to be accurate? Then I suggest you use the correct terminology.
