  2. Sweet tune/playing. Especially liked the leadwork in the second quarter, starting w/the harmonics. What was your setup, especially for the lead? That's almost exactly the "tele tone" in my head.

    Thanks!

    It's a Rick Kelly custom "Protocaster", which is like an old broadcaster - one bridge pickup and thats it.

    Its just the guitar and an Analogman BiCompRossor with a Vox Tonelab, recorded direct.

    Thanks. The single pickup really does sound different than standard tele pickups that I've heard. Maybe there's something to the idea of the neck pickup interfering significantly with string vibration?

    here's another one, a bit different.

    You mean an Esquire right?
    Broadcaster had two pups.

    Nice playing+tone but I could live without the chorus/delay or whatever it was.

    Ah yes, an esquire. I wasn't around back in the 50s, so I don't remember these things :)

    it reminds me either of Gillian Welch, not exactly sure why, very nice sounding, refreshing stuff.

    I'm not familiar with Gillian Welch, maybe I'll check them out.

    Gillian Welch is a female folk singer akin to a modern day Joan Baez.

    Rock on Motherfolkers!

    Thought I'd resurrect this one now that I've heard of Gillian Welch. She's got some good tunes.
