I heard James Fullers lead guitar in the Surfaris band a few years back in Newport Beach Ca .. That Jimmy sure can play guitar...! .He had some other great guitar slingers one was Paul Johnston,, but Jimmy was the showman, he has got real feel, da sound and licks for miles... They rocked!!
The Surfaris are HOT !!

Not much in his Wikipedia article:

Jim Fuller (June 27, 1947 – March 3, 2017) was the lead guitarist and co-songwriter of 1960s rock band The Surfaris.

Fuller was known as the "Godfather" of surf music, a Californian folk rock music.

He was also a studio musician that has performed on many other artists' recordings of rock, folk, and blues songs throughout his career, doing vocals, lead and bass guitar.

Fuller, with his Fender guitar in photographs and its sound on The Surfaris albums, contributed to the popularity of Leo Fender's instruments.

His name is on "Hollywood's Rock Walk of Fame".

As of 2004 he continued to perform with The Surfaris and other bands, with a fan base in United States, Europe, and Japan.

He died on March 3, 2017 in Monrovia, California, at the age of 69.
