Reading and watching your latest guitar thread I couldn't help thinking of Craven County guitarist Pete Huttllinger. He's probably the most famous guitarist most folks never heard of. Reason being that he primarily works as a studio guitarist in Nashville and plays acoustic guitar. I knew of Pete when I attended Craven Community college many years ago. I can't call him a friend. I never hung around him but saw him on campus all the time, usually with a group of cute ladies hanging around him. There is some story about him and (I think it was) Les Paul that I want to tell you but I can't quite remember the details. I'll get back to you if I do. Seems he was the only person that Paul or whomever the artist was, would allow to play a particular arrangement that he had written.
I'm much more into electric guitar music but Pete is great! He was having some health problems a while back. Don't know what his status is now.
