    Johnny Meeks-Owned G&L Cavalier Electric Guitar (1984). Rockabilly Hall of Fame member Johnny Meeks is best-known for his time as lead guitarist with Gene Vincent's Blue Caps, but he also played with some of Country Music's finest, including Merle Haggard. Here's Johnny's road-tested red Cavalier guitar, custom-made for him by Leo Fender's G&L Company. The guitar is one of only about 1,400 of this model ever produced, and is quite a collector's item on its own. It shows the wear of a well-played guitar, but is overall still structurally sound and ready for play. It comes with Johnny's red strap, the original G&L hardshell case (with a broken handle), and several signed photos of Johnny and Leo Fender. From the Johnny Meeks Collection.
