Tommy is (imho) the top finger picker in the world and this shows it. There are lots of other truly great fp's out there, but Tom is top of the pyramid. Chet Atkins thought so too!

Lisa, re: worn guitar. Tom uses it almost like a drum kit sometimes ... plus he gets that neat scratching effect by keeping the lacquer on the guitar very light. It's a Maton, custom made for him in Australia. Uses them as his main stage guitars although he also plays Martins and Fenders along with others.
