    Jerry Cortez is a 'freakin Badass guitar player, great songwriter and singer too! And he has been for years. I used to see him with Mark Ford and the Blue Meanies, with Garth Weber AND Jerry on guitars and vocals - GREAT band!

    Jerry's still got it!

    Thanks Joeseph, Dana O.

    Agreed, saw TOP a couple of weeks ago at the Sellersville Theater in South Jersey, Jerry crushed it. And, needless to say, Rocco.....what a master!

    Typical TOP, the guitar is hard to hear in the mix. That's annoyed me since 1974.

    Wow ! Great playing indeed, and a very nice, thick tone to go with it.

    Have wanted one of those for a while now. There was a Custom Lite with Wolfetones for sale here on TGP a couple weeks ago. It sold before I got my tax refund. Somebody got a nice axe.

    It was $1395. I'd have jumped on it if I could. It's been a sort of overlooked model until pretty recently.
