Bill Kirchen Photo Outtakes: FJ #5

In our fifth edition with Tony Rice on the cover (now long out-of-print, sadly), we did a lengthy interview with Telecaster master Bill Kirchen. Photographer Lely Constantinople snapped shots of Kirchen’s infamous Telecaster. We thought it was high time we shared a few outtakes, showing just how battle-scarred (and beautiful) a Telecaster can be.
