    I was going through my J.A. backers and thought this may sound cool with a "Tele".
    This is actually a chambered USA Peavey. I change pickups on this every now and then. The newest config is the most excellent Dimarzio Area neck pickup(not in pic), Cruiser middle (not used in this track), and Virtual Hot Tele bridge.

    Amp is my trusty modded Bassman with power scaling, and a bit of Tone Press compression into the Hermida 12" ported cab. Sennheiser 609 for close mic, and Red Box hard panned, then a MXL condenser room mic

    Simply Outstanding Harry ...
    5 Star's to the max ..

    Would luv to hear you play live like this with a piano/acoustic bass/drums format ..
    Amazing how this kind of tone sounds soooo good with acoustic instruments ..

    I sure hope you get recognized as an Artist
    every bit as much as you do a teacher & demo-nator ...

    Hey thx Joe
    This tone cleans up so well and responds to dynamics big time, so I guess it's a cleanish tone 1/2 the time :)

    Ha!

    Funny you should mention that Joseph.........you don't know how close that was to actually happening this week!

    Very cool, H...........as always.

    What are your settings on the Tone Press? Got one coming to check out.

    Thanks!

    Wow thanks guys :)
    A few had specific questions;

    Chuck,
    Dude. you know it's mutual :)
    My finger is healing well, I still use medical tape on it
    Steve suggested crazy glue on the tip... I will try that.

    Gtrwks,
    It is the Tele Area neck pickup, although this guitar accepts Strat sized pup's as well.
    I switch pickups all the time just for fun...I had the Air Norton S in the neck position based on Blucher's recommendation for a fat 'bucker neck tone and it killed, but wanted to switch back to the Area again... the result inspired me to record :)


    Jim,
    I used the T.P. to push the Bassman over the line.
    For this track, I set the sustain on full and the blend barely on. I set it differently live. Would have been fun to sub 'yer gig man :)

    Once again thx to all for all the warmth

    HJ

    Excellent as usual, Harry. I love the tone - need to try some of those Area's in my strat....problem is they won't sound as good with me playing;).
