Telecaster... Or Pedal Steel? What's he using?

Do you think he's using a telecaster to get that sound? Or a pedal steel?
If he's using a telecaster-- how does he get it to sound so deliciously whiney?

P.S. Why doesn't the Youtube button work, on this forum?

It's Luther Dickinson on slide (obviously inspired by Cooder). Don't know if it's a Tele though - probably not.

Copy the part of the URL after the "=" sign and place it between the YOUTUBE brackets.

The credits on the album do not list any pedal steel. Sounds like just a slide.
That's Luther Dickinson on guitar. I have seen John play with that band lineup but can't remember what kind of guitar Luther was playing--pretty sure it was not a Tele though.

Luther plays a lot of different guitars, including several Teles, but my guess would be he used some Gibson model (LP or SG?) for this recording.

It's definitely not pedal steel....my guess is regular old slide guitar... not even a dobro type guitar... Sounded kinda soft and thick, I'm thinking a semi hollow body or something along those lines... Gibson would be a good bet.

Looks like the OP has lost the interest ...

Well, he got his answer anyway.

Everytime I've seen Luther, he's playing a Gibson or Epi. Never seen him play a tele or pedal steel.
