I'm going to have to remember that!
What a great topic and thread. It says a lot about our love not just for Gretsch, but for guitars and music in general and as an important part of who we are.
I love the fight a good Tele puts up. LPs are pushovers man!
How does someone achieve this skill? It seems like no one could "teach" you how to play like this. He must have started early and just learned his instrument. Great stuff!
I haven’t watched the whole vid but to me it sounds like the man listened to a lot of Albert Lee and Eric Clapton. Lots of instructionals on those...
@G5422T is totally right, pickup height is an important thing on a Telly and every other guitar. If you set your pickups (too) high you‘ll get a lot more output and brightness while loosing details and transparency. Try to screw down the bridge pickup until it sounds more balanced.
On the other hand- the neck pickup on Tellys sounds sometimes muffled. Try to raise it up in a similar relation, works well on most Telecasters (and Gretsches).
Ahh, can‘t help it- listen to this tone, here with a Nachocaster (into a Jazzchorus)
Yeah, it's an Esquire not a Tele, but Holy Smokes!
Wow, good find! Never heard of her.
Right?! This is incredible!
I’ve heard her on record before, but I was totally ignorant of the fact that she’s the one making those guitar tones!
What a sweet girl, never heard of her.
Look at her left hand. She knows about her Esquire.
Holy schnit, I didn’t realise this awesome pic (which I have seen before) is her! I thought it was a Gretsch promo shot with a random model.
This is actually a picture of Bo Diddley’s rhythm guitar player “The Duchess”. She left and was eventually replaced by another women named Lady Bo.
Ah, tnx Google, most helpful...LOL
Rio Grande tele pickups are FANTASTIC. I've been running the Muy Grande bridge in my #1 for... like 25 years now!! I LOVE that thing. The neck (I think it was a tallboy?) was good too, but I preferred the Fender CS Texas Special neck, which is what's still in there, also 25 years later.
And I recently ordered a set of their BBQ'Trons for my thinline Cabronita....
As Barabyk says here, "Spend a lot of time, work hard, and practice."
Here’s some fresh Tele magic (actually a Reverend Gristlemaster with Fishman active pickups). Check out Since I’ve Been Loving You at about the 31 minute mark.
Ok I’m confused... This is not Barbara Lynn on the cover?
Gotta agree with calebaaron666 and his post #113. I get the impression that the CD might be a gray market quasi-legal copyright (European) release and is wrong. That picture clearly looks like the Duchess from Bo Diddley's band. (..not to mention Barbara Lynn was a left handed player). Here's what I found online:
Those both look pretty sexy to me
