That IS pretty cool. Great tone on the video.
Kills 59 LPs on occasion
Looks like Joe avoids the 16th fret
And Telecasters are the more fashionable guitar of the last several years...
Tele's are killer. He's got great taste
And...cue Fender custom shop JB 51 nocaster, followed up by a production/standard USA model in a year.
With JB signature Seymour Duncan nocaster pickups, of course.
Yes, and yet his Pauls remain his go to guitars.
Ultimate Rock guitar is a Tele with humbuckers. The Jeff Beck special.
Not likely. When Joe and Fender broke up, I'm pretty sure it wasn't on friendly terms.
.....and typically, like most guys who put a humbucker in the neck of their tele, he stays on the bridge pickup!!!
Flavour of the day ... Good to see that JB is a human being with just the same traits that we have. There is always a "bestest" thing in his arsenal. I'm not a die hard fan, but I followed his work and music over the years. In the early days I mostly saw him with Teles and Strats, and so many different amps that I can't even remember (Budda, Marshall/SJ, Fuchs, Van Weelden, Dumble etc.etc.). Then he started chasing the ultimate 50's LP. Then his switch exclusively to the Fender Twins (which I personally didn't really dig). Now the Dumbles are back in the game...
So bottom line - taste and preferences just change over the years. Maybe in few years he will find THE Strat and have a fav #1... who knows. Just play the damn thing and enjoy, that's my personal mantra these days.
That thing is perfect
The best tele player with the best tone was Albert Collins in my opinion,
his guitar had a humbucker in the neck position and he played with both pickups on at once.
Joe has always used Tele types, since his 1st US tour with Eric Czar on bass in a white van ( i think it was $10 and stupid loud).
To me a Tele is great for fast picking and very versatile...i'll stick to my 65 SG Special....a solid body Gibson with P-90s that is a feather weight is hard to beat for this old guy LOL!
Interestingly, the 4th has the next least wear after the 16th... guess he's not playing many songs in Ab
Didn't fender just do a signature amp with Joe?
Yes but there was some uncomfortable issues around a clone of one of his CS strats awhile back.
Oh, like what? Or would it be unkosher to discuss here?
