You might enjoy these guys...





I hope Zander shows up at NAMM this year. I'd love to hear him in person.

The skeptic in me finds the double neck Sweet Child O' Mine to be hard to believe.


Maybe I'm just jealous?


That guy also has little baby hands. Even if I COULD, my meat hook hands wouldn't be physically able to play like that. I'd be muting strings all over the neck!

If you watch his other stuff, it's obvious that this is not a fluke. Quite a talented guy.

A friend of mine built a Thing(tm) - bass guitar with a midi keyboard grafted to it. He plays non-trivial lines on the bass with his left hand, more non-trivial stuff on the midi with his right hand and sings - all at the same time. He is a Julliard trained pianist and one of the most incredible Unix geeks I've ever run across.

I really like the song. I'm going to watch the video again and try to learn the licks. Very cool.

Hey electric guitar players,

I recently had the opportunity to mess around with a Telecaster my Dad has. I don't really play electric much at all, but I really liked the feel of the tele. I played his 71 (I think) Les Paul, his Stratocaster, and his Tele, and liked the Tele better by far.

Are all Tele's sort of the same, as far as feel? What I really liked was the baseball bat-like neck. His is just a 2004 or so mexican made tele. I think I'm going to have to look for one, but trying to narrow down what to look for. Whatever it is, it will be on the lower end of the price spectrum...

They are mostly the same. The semi-hollows will feel different, vintage tribute models are made to a different spec in the neck area usually, etc. But a Tele neck is pretty unique to itself.

If you're buying a Mexican one, have a shop check the frets out afterward. That's usually a skimping point, good fret leveling and filing. The stock pickups will probably be pleasing for quite awhile. I'd say look into a graphite nut pretty early, as that's the culprit for tuning issues on cheaper models. It's cheap and helps a lot.

Essentially, you'll get what you like about the feel in most Telecasters. Just look to improve hardware over time.

Mostly the same. You get better parts as you move up the line though.

If you really like thick necks you should check out the 50's necked Gibson Les Pauls. The '54-59 have thick necks. '54-57's are considered baseball bats.

Thanks guys. That helps.

My Dad also had a weird Fender Telecaster Acoustic/electric; hollow body, f hole, acoustic style bridge with a bridge pickup inside, and one regular tele style pickup. The neck on that thing was quite a bit thinner, but it's a strange bird that Fender doesn't recollect making, anyway. Can find zero info on it.

Terrible thing, IMHO.

He said he couldn't find any info; should have known someone on ADV would know about them.

A girlfriend of mine had a Japanese Strat from the same era. Can't vouch for those weird things (though I'd gladly take one) but the Japanese stuff from then usually gets credit for build quality and innovation.
