1995 Artist Relations Albert Lee.

I assume that means it was kept in the vault and when music royalty visited the factory they were allowed to play it.

This is the lightest guitar that I have ever held in my life. I don’t have a scale.

Isn't that Jim Messina's former AL?

Well, I took my neck off and the mystery has been solved.

I have Jim Messina’s number 1.

The body is a single slab of highly figured and flamed swamp ash.

I've got a few AL's in my collection, most of them I bought/adopted/rescued used.
And the older they are, the sweeter they sound and play... all that mojo they've absorbed over the years really comes through...

That Messina Al is so nice .

Anybody remember the neckthrough black Albert - I think a prototype back in the day ?
Two humbuckers B4 Als had them.

Spud of course I do, let me see if I can scare up a picture. Very futuristic.
