Among his fascinating history: being long time personal friends with Leo Fender. For a while, Fender made steel guitars and, in the beginning, Leo would often give Herb instruments to try out while traveling with Bob Wills. On more than one occasion, when Herb would call Leo after a tour to provide his feedback, Leo would tell him he had a pile of orders from fans who saw Herb play and wanted a steel guitar of their own!
