    Fabulous. What’s he done with the master volume?

    Stereo Clubs don't have a master volume. Let Jimmie Webster explain it to you.

    He's cheating.

    Using a capo.;):p

    Great vid though... even though I thought all guitar players down under should be left-handed.:D

    Impressive playing across a range of styles, nice tones, a cheery persona and infectious enthusiasm. What’s not to like. I guess he’s either a lot older than he looks or has been playing since before he was born ;)

    Thanks for sharing :)

    :( I'd just convinced myself that I didn't need a Country Club, and then I see this!

    Edit: Went for the Country Club, stayed for Joe Robinson's playing! What an excellent guitarist, with a really good Youtube channel.

    He looks to have reversed the pickups.

    Killer, Chet would've loved this guy.

    You are correct. That's the opposite of how stereo Clubs are usually configured. I guess maybe he wanted mellower treble and more bite on the bass strings.

    I had a capo years ago but never really used it. I picked another one up a few years ago and use it to change the pitch really, not to cheat. I read it’s a cheater way to make difficult chords or something. Whatever. I like moving it to different frets and hearing new chord pitches. Just a tool as far as I’m concerned.

    Beautiful guitar, tone and one of the very few people doing Chet Atkins I have a heard time not realizing it is not him (if not looking)
    Good Job! Thanks for posting

    his playing is phenomenal but the tone to me is tubby and clacky. I'm thinking he's using an iphone as its picking up the instrument too much acoustically?

    I just realized he swap both pickups !! The treble pole screws are on the neck position and the opposite... Wow, so a balanced mod.
