    Also, wanted to say I loved the first batch of demos. Very tasteful playing, particularly in the middle position video. You've got a nice Mark Knopfler thing going on, I think. What amp are you playing through? Was it straight to amp or are there pedals being used?

    Thanks a lot guys, really appreciate it :)

    I`m playing through my Swart AST. Using two drive pedals, first a fairfield barbershop overdrive ( this is my "always on" pedal - just buy it, I guarantee that you won`t regret it ). Then I use a Durham Mucho Boosto for that extra gain. Both these pedals were on all the time. The reverb is an old Hermida. Tremolo is Stigtronics - one of the best simple trem`s out there!

    I've never played a real black or white guard vintage Tele but from all the video clips I've heard, I prefer the sound of mid-late '50s Teles myself.

    Yes, tasteful playing and tasteful purchasing. Thanks for posting them.
    That Tele sounds killer in the videos. Maybe you could do something similar with the jr, comparing both.

    Agreed, a beautiful sounding and looking vintage fender.

    This picture has freaked me out a bit, it would appear we have similar tastes, I have a 57 Esquire and a 55 LP junior and I also play through a Swart AST, I know it's just a coincidence but I thought it was worth mentioning.
