What an amazing ambassador for telecaster greatness. I really enjoyed this new rig rundown.
How good was that?! Thank you for sharing, G.E. was so laid back but cool and so knowledgable. Loved it!
He was 90% of the reason I would tune into SNL.
He's got the guitars just leaning up against amps, laying on top of bar stools, etc. Love it!
GE Smith corroborates John Mayer when discussing Fenders level of cooperation when details of a signature guitar are being agreed upon. If they were to build a GE Smith Tele with a price point of 2K like a Silver Sky it might be a better guitar, but GE was quick to point out how cheap and random things were early on as well. I love his attitude about everything. Great vid...only made it half way through but will get back to it. Thanks!
The guy's humility and generosity is astounding for that business. Every interview I've heard him in, you realize one reason why pros must like to work with him. I think he just remembers and realizes where he came from. He is a great player, as are many, and recognizes that he blessed.
G.E. Smith might be the coolest guy in the world.
And he'd be the first to tell you otherwise & politely thank you.
There's a broken down segmented interview (PBS?) on youtube of him talking about his career, etc for about 90 minutes total. Its incredible to listen to, all the while he's holding a vintage burst tele, taunting us. Great interview. I strongly recommend it.
Very cool video, thanks for posting it. GE is so interesting to listen to, and so down-to-earth. Now I need to go watch that video with him and evh playing together on snl that they were talking about.
I liked when they showed him on The Simpsons, with that little guitar move.
Fabulous. Thanks for posting.
Where is the footage with him and Eddie playing?
I haven’t got a clue who GE Smith is, but I watched this last night and it’s probably the best rig rundown I’ve watched (and I’ve watched a lot).
One day, a long time ago, it was announced that Bob Dylan would be playing the Adler Theater in Davenport, IA, & that it was supposedly his 1st Iowa appearance. The next day, the local talk at the music stores wasn't "did you go to the Dylan show", it was "did you see G.E. Smith last night"! I was lucky enough to get seats in the 2nd to last row of the upper balcony with the standing waves that occur in that room.
One of my favorite players going way back…
Watched this earlier this week and I agree it was one of the best rig rundown I have seen.
G.E. is the man. Used to live to catch his licks in those short SNL segments.
He's a terrific grandma too.
