Wes was one of the early CBN folks, CBG makers and was well known for his suitcase amps and amps in general. The blue amp was a skate case amp that I had from Wes and later passed on to Downtown Vinnie.
Wes was from Pennsylvania and retired to North Carolina maybe 5-6 years ago. He loved his wife, Kathy, and all his family. He played dobro and CBG dobro with a church group and loved to fish. He lost a long battle to a blood cancer. God bless him and those that care about him.
