fate of Waylons guitar

rubbersole
May 28th, 2010, 01:05 PM
I understand that Nicole Kidman purchased Waylons old 50's nocaster for a birthday gift for husband Keith Urban and I did see him do a version of "Are you sure Hank done it this way" on youtube.
I just read today that he (Urban) lost all of his guitars, amps, equipment stored in a storage facility, in the recent flooding in Nashville.
Can someone please tell me that Waylons guitar was not in that storage facility and is o.k.?

Waylon's guitar was not in that storage facility and is ok. I cannot verify this information at all, but I wanted to make you feel better. :wink:

I'm pretty sure Keith lost all of his gear.
When I saw him on the Brooks and Dunn special on Sunday, he didn't have his signature Hiwatt heads or vintage WEM cabs.
Also looked like he was playing his K-Line tele, not one of his vintage pieces.

I just twice threw up in my mouth... First, because of the thought of Waylon's Broadcaster being destroyed. Second, because of the idea of Keith Urban playing it. I do know Hank didn't do it HIS way. Now excuse me while I retreat to a corner to assume the fetal position.

Old country is going the way of the blues and jazz, and crapola country is here to stay. It will continue to evolve the way the Nashville sound came with the violins and 80s drums and changed to our modern bad rock and good pop.

Ironic one of old country's hallmarks, Chet Atkins, is responsible for the Nashville Sound.

The last I heard Waylons old guitar was owned by Reggie Young. So if he still has it its in good hands.

Actually the guitar was sold for 98 thousand by reggie and nicole did buy it for kieth. If you do a search on youtube on waylon there is a posting on the auction.

the one keith played has the black pick guard,so i'm not sure just which one he has. btw was waylon's # 1 not the one with the white pick guard?
don't know how to post the link off of youtube on that auction.

Shooter Jennings also still owns one of his dad's old teles. It was featured in that music video of Roger Alan Wade's "The first time I saw Waylon" where Wade plays it.

I've always believed that the country crapola bunch was rock guitarists that could not make it in rock and roll, so they took the easy way out and went country.

Gosh, anyone can play a 12 bar blues and throw in a few generic riffs.

Rock and roll takes some inovation and thought plus good coordination to be any good.

I believe that Brad Paisley and Keith Urban would be considered country crapola to some people.
I would like to see them outplay BP or KU. They are both killer guitarists.

Both BP and KU are excellent guitarists, but I'd certainly give the nod to Brad.

Keith sounded GREAT doing the Rolling Stones songs......it's just that when he does "his" songs (or somebody's songs that people pay/force him to do), he sounds just terrible.

I'll agree, most of the stuff called "country" now-a-days is just gut wrenching to listen to. Paisley has a few great songs and he is one bad ass tele player, I can tell you that.

Can't stand the product coming from Nashville. But you could argue that it proves Chester was just as bad*ss at business as he was on guitar.

When much younger I never listened to country a la Tele Dave. Seems funny that these days the country I enjoy and respect is the stuff I blew off in my youth. There might be a reason that Hank is more popular than ever.


I once heard Mark Knopler say that there were more REAL guitar players per square foot in Nashville than anywhere else on earth with the possible exception of Rio, and being there was at once gratifying and humbling. Does anyone else see this as a great waste of talent?

All music has to be respected just by different people. Country, Jazz, Blues, Bluegrass, and yes Rock and Roll all came from the same Place The Good old USA.

Yeah, it's the other way around. I don't like to judge guitarists playing ability, cuz we all do what we do, but the most humbling thing I've experienced was visiting Nashville and seeing great guitarists standing 10 deep waiting to get up and play. Some of the finest musicians in the world call Nashville home.

I agree.


Before things get out of hand, we should distinguish between true "country" and not formulated stuff. Formulated stuff is "pop" and designed to be a "product." Country, just like most genre's of music has seen several formulas over the years. The trick is to not let each trend back a style into a corner (see: blues), then it becomes a "genre."

95% of what we hear on the radio is a pop product. The purpose is to sell ads, that is all. Personal enjoyment is a non factor. Set the hook (literally), and reel 'em in!

We can all agree that to find real music, and most any true thing, we must dig a little deeper and search a bit harder to find the real deal.

For my whole short life, I've noticed pretty much the same 3 or 4 chord progressions used on the radio. I noticed it on top 40 stations, then on country, now on R & B quite a bit. Classic rock stations have it too. All the modern pop progressions seem to rehash the same bits used since the 60's. Once I get back to the "big band" era, it's a little harder to find, but several progressions go all the way back to nearly 100 years ago. I can find this with my untrained ear, so I'm sure some of you guys on here can hear it all plain as day.

Shooter has Waylon's number one (white pickguard)
Reggie Young auctioned Waylon's '50 Blackguard Broadcaster (his #2 stage guitar)... bought by Nicole Kidman for Keith.
Keith kept most of his gear in Sound Check... storage facility near the Cumberland River.
There was horrific rains from the heavens... the rivers swelled and the land (and storage facility) was covered in water.
After that... it all gets fuzzy, but I am afraid.

Soooo.... all "Nashville Crapola" aside... and it sure as hell is CRRAAAAAP-OLA!... what's the scoop on the leatherbound blackguard?

What I meant by "country crapola" stuff is like what scantron81 said, the formulated stuff, not real country.

Conway Twitty
Lester Flatt
Hank Williams

Now that's country

Grew up on WWVA radio station as a kid, and like country. The REAL Country, not this "POP" stuff that all you got to do is change the tempo a little, and some different lyrics and it will become "ROCK"

Honeymooned at Nashville and took in the shows at the Ryman and the G.O.O and loved every bit of it and went to several of the must see places.


It's just what is passed off as country today is not real country IMO.

The point I was trying to make with you is that you need to separate the "records you hate" from the "musicians that make those records" none of these guys are 2nd rate rock refugees........I can assure you that every session player (including myself) has been asked to play licks that we though didn't serve the song well, or help lift up a song with catchy riffs that probably didn't deserve to even be cut....BUT WITH THAT SAID all my session buddies have played (and continue to create) some of the best music when given the opportunity on the planet.....

In the spirit of the thread, I hope that Waylon's guitar is safe and sound in a case under a bed. I don't care who's bed that is.
To comment on the side thread, I read an interview with Jeff Beck prob 20 years ago. He was talking about being in a recording studio in Nashville. One of the session guys was there and checked out Jeff's guitar. Jeff said "That cat could flat out play, I was happy to get out of that town. People there are scary good.
It's not the musicians that make crapola, it's the executives that pay them to play.

Amen brother (on atheism and on the trash talking of modern country)!

Just because some of us don't like Keith Urban's music doesn't mean it's "awful" or not "real country" - music's quality is based only on individual opinion (and unfortunately, record sales). The music business is a business first and foremost (it sucks but it's always been true).

If you want "real country," go support your local musicians - they need all the help they can get. That is the "right to choose" that never gets exercised enough. That is how some "fake" Aussie with "girly hair" got the stack of gold and money to afford Waylon's guitar.

In the end it's just a guitar - it could've been a human life drowning and lost. As long as we got Waylon's recordings, we haven't lost anything too important.

PS Jerry
As a fellow atheist (and non-Clapton fan), how is Clapton god? HAHA! Although I do enjoy his work on that Mayall Bluesbreakers album - pure mayhem and fantastic tone!

I cannot stand most "pop" and I cannot think of one "country crapola" song I like (as opposed to the old-time country, which I love), BUT:

it is hard to play that sort of music well. Fans of that sort of music typically want a slick, glossy, flawless performance. Live, the fans want their favorite hits to sound just like the recording did.

That sort of music (basically background music) is rarely adventurous, but at the same the tolerance for error is very low. This means that country pop still requires a high level of technical skill to pull off.

To be fair, the poster you are referring to says he is patriotic, and you pull out a quote about nationalism; they are not the same thing.

And, no criticism of Thomas Paine intended,many people have done a lot of evil with what they considered to be good intentions.

John, I never played one down here that had gotten wet, that I'd want to own, even after extensive restoration.

I know this was a much shorter period of immersion but things just happen to these guitars; whatever made them exceptional is almost always lost.

I'm just glad Shooter still has the main guitar. Looking at all the ruined guitars in this clip is really more than I can handle.

I wonder how the people who had a major role in the decision to demolish the Hall of Fame building are feeling right now. :sad:

When I first heard about the Sound Check facility and all the equipment stored there it struck me as an odd practice. What are (were) the advantages of keeping so much equipment in one place, in a flood zone, no less? As far as I know this is unique to Nashville artists, though maybe not.

How many of the leather covered Tele's did Waylon have? I know cat in CA that has one. I believe it's a 53. If his son has one and the Bcaster and T. Tritt's got one, and the guy I know makes 4(unless he sold his?)
I know lots of people lost waaaay more then some wood and wire but my heart sunk when I saw the first images. I hope the rest of the story gets out there. Seems like a subject for it's own thread?

Not to way-lay this topic any further but I registered and watched the Christies auction with the Broadcaster and Luther Perkins Esquire among the great guitars. I was hoping to get one of Hank Thompson's guitar straps. I was shocked that Hank's Bigbsy necked guitars brought so little. His signature J200 went cheap IMO. I recall Rodney Crowell's 50's J200 went for a decent price, seems like there were some good buys actually. Not on straps though!

A lot of session musicians in Nashville hire a cartage company to store and deliver their gear. So, when Big & Rich call you for a session, you call the cartage company and give them a list of what to bring for you. Since they often have several guitars, amps, and effects, I can't blame them for not wanting to haul all their own gear, especially since they often play multiple sessions in a day at different studios.

I don't understand this old country new country stuff that somehow means Keith Urban suck. Why? Because he can actually sing and does sound like a victim of throat cancer, because he writes his own music or because he is one of the best guitar players in the world. He was a studio musician before he made it for garth, alan jackson, vince gill and everyone else. Vince gill has said he is one of the best guitar players he has ever seen.

Here is some proof. Keith singing that "old" country and for the guy that wanted to hear him with just a guitar and an amp.

I just saw Brad Paisley's excellent H2O tour show a few weeks ago - my first ever country music (genre) concert. It was my daughter's choice as a reward for her good year in school.

He can play that double stop like nobody's business!

I wouldn't call myself a country music fan, as I rarely listen and own no CDs; however, I always watch the awards shows cuz all the stars come out and play live. Keith and Brad especially.

Actually the guitar was sold for 98 thousand by reggie and nicole did buy it for kieth. If you do a search on youtube on waylon there is a posting on the auction.

yup...and according to this guy it is the number 1... :cry:

And yes, (since we somehow got on the subject), most "country" does stink to high heaven these days...but Keith Urban, while some songs are definitely suspect of a certain amount of suckage, due no doubt to selection by the Nashvegas "machine", but folks,,,,friends,,,,, neighbors!!! Keith Urban, the guitar player, most assuredly DOES NOT suck...as you will see here:

I bought the debut "Ranch" cd in Walmart years ago before I heard even a single note, mainly based on the looks on their faces that said (to me) "We do not suck...." :cool:...and sure enough, they didn't !

God knows I am not nor do I want to be the conscious of this interchange BUT I feel compelled to state that we are all here for our affection for music and particularly guitar and especially Telecasters. Not all of us prefer one style. We need to respect other's endeavors whether or not they fit ours. I don't really understand fusion but more power to those who pursuit it. Now if you really want to get me on my high horse say something negative about Dangerous Don. Long live Johnny Crash!

i know that the guitar had 2 scruggs tuners on the two e strings
so ..do all 3 or 4 all have the 2 scruggs pegs?
is there a link to more info?
i've seen articles in vintage guitar talking about the destruction of
historic equipment in the flood
thank God gruhn's shop is up the hill
even peter frampton and cats not associated with country had tons of gear
there
the powers created a triage board to discuss repairs(vg mag)
including the famous repair cats and experts( gruhn/joe glaser)
vg said the damage is unmeasurable in respect to hit record instruments
and music in general
any acoustic submerged for a week the articles said is lost
