James Burton's "TCB Tele"

James Burton, the "Telecaster Master", was playing for Elvis Presley when I met him in 1972. Mike Deasy introduced us. He asked me to carve this tele for him (it was one of his favorites) 'cause he liked what I did on the 3 I had carved for Mike.

He said he wanted a crucifix on it, his initials, a "leo" sign and (especially) the letters "TCB" with a lightening bolt. The design was left to me. TCB stands for "take care of business". Elvis' band members had this symbol on everything they owned.
