"Matt's a fine addition to the Tele kings."

 - Vintage Guitar Magazine

What does it take to become a Master of the Telecaster? To play alongside Forrest Lee Jr., Arlen Roth, Redd Volkaert, Johnny Winter, Sonny Landreth, and Matt Schofield? To be mentioned in the same breath as Brent Mason, Danny Gatton, and Johnny Hiland? For Matt Rae you start "noodling around" on your Mom's Martin acoustic at age 6, and then don't miss a day of practice in over 40 years. Just like getting to Carnegie Hall!
