Pat and Sco (and Frisell) are identifiable after 1 note, which as all the greats
will tell you is the highest achievement possible as a jazz musician,
something the clones (If I just hold my pick like George...) just don't get. They would rather be a lick library than ADD licks to the library.
This year I have owned 2 Eastman LP types, 1 p90 1 HB
and currently own a 2020 LP Standard.
However, I recently picked up a 2019 ES335 which
gives me everything I would want from an LP except
maybe super-heavy sounds, but that is of little importance to me,
so I will probably be moving the LP...
Bluegrass Standard by The Dillards with a famous '70s version by JD Crowe and The New South featuring
Tony Rice, Ricky Skaggs, and Jerry Douglas.
