"The fourth guitar of the series. Armed with the Les Paul and the Telecaster, I went to the Martin factory and met with Danny Brown at the custom shop. I told him what I wanted to do. Could he make a 000 style cutaway color matched to the Les Paul with all the other Les Paul attributes like the Fender? At first the guys were skeptical but after they saw what Fender did, the competitive juices started to flow."
