Del Casher (born Delton Kacher, 1938, Hammond, Indiana) is an American guitarist and inventor. He has done many impressive things with his guitar during his life. He performed with Gene Autry, Lawrence Welk, and Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention (rock band from California). He appeared, strumming, in movies with Elvis Presley and Jerry Lewis.
