Despite positive press from Melody Maker and New Musical Express , Lee has never achieved any great commercial success in terms of record sales during his career, but more as a live performer, session player and sideman , perhaps due to his self-effacing stage presence.
Lee has been described by his peers, who include Jimmy Page and Ritchie Blackmore , as a complete gentleman who does not know the meaning of the word ego. After Gram Parsons 's death, Emmylou Harris was told that she could gain the backing of a major record label only if she could assemble a really "hot band".
When Burton left to return to Elvis Presley , Lee was his replacement. Harris said of him that Lee is "a brilliant guitar player. His sound is unmistakable—often emulated, never equaled. When Saint Peter asks me to chronicle my time down here on earth, I'll be able to say with pride if that's allowed that for a while I played rhythm guitar in a band with Albert Lee.
The guitars have an all black, high-gloss lacquered finish and are equipped with twin Everly Brothers white pickguards. The Everly Brothers ' manager Wesley Rose had wanted the guitar to be presented to the Country Music Hall of Fame , but Everly informed him that guitars like that should be played, not kept sitting in a glass case.
Lee also plays his signature Music Man the guitar shown in the photographs and a s Telecaster and has versions of both with custom B-Benders , a Stratocaster and a Martin acoustic.
Despite his being heavily associated with the Fender Telecaster, guitar manufacturer Ernie Ball Music Man makes a signature Albert Lee guitar, which unlike the Telecaster has two humbucking pickups.
