Interesting video that gets into Steven Wilson using a Tele on his new album.
Thanks! I generally prefer his Porcupine Tree stuff but awesome artist. I've seen him live several times.
Have seen him number of times too. Have you heard his new album "To The Bone" yet? Songs are more concise and it is more PT-like than the previous solo albums.
This is the guy behind Porcupine Tree? Who also helped make Opeth's Damnation? A freaking genius if you ask me.
Just got it but I haven't had time to digest it yet. I'm sure I'll like it. Next to Frank Zappa, SW is most responsible for putting me in the poor house. Let alone running out of storage space. LOL. Too many releases.
You know , I like Steven Wilson, I like That Pedal Show, but I hate how they talk about "just a Mexican Tele".
I've had American, Custom Shop, and a vintage Tele early 60's/late 50's mongrel and if asked to name a favorite Tele or two - my mind immediately jumps to some early 90's MIM's I've had.
Remember - all the old 50's Tele's that we lust after were MBM's...
Anyone else weirded out that he's barefoot???
Pretty usual for him. I recall being at a Porcupine Tree show one time where after the opening act, they brought out a vacuum cleaner to ensure the stage was clear prior to PT coming out.
Does it help if you imagine he is using it as an indication of an amount of money, eg 'this is only a 1k guitar'?
I don't think any knowing person runs down Mexican or Japanese
Cool sound....what model is exactly that Mexican tele???
Nice interview. I don't love everything he's done, but I do appreciate his work.
His analogy of effects live vs recording was interesting, comparing actors who do live work vs movies.
Funny he is just now discovering the simple joys of the Tele.
It's the old Joe Strummer signature model.
And as far as a "cheap Mexican Tele" goes, my #1 is a converted MIM Esquire.
Two others that I currently favor are MIM Cabronita's - one solid and one hollow body.
Nice to see that Mr. Wilson has finally come around to realizing what great instruments they are.
IM(not-so-humble)O, the MIM Fender guitars are the best bang-for-the-buck guitars on the market. I know they historically didn’t hold their resale value as much as an American-made instrument, but that's beginning to change, too.
Plus, their playability and quality of build is only surpassed by the highest-rated American guitars. The only thing American instruments have on the Hecho-en-Mexico instruments are the features that are offered "stock", which due to the modular nature of Fenders, can often be put together after the fact.
My '60s Baja is the best Telecaster I've ever played.
Oh, the guy ruining XTC's catalog.
A new MIM Nashville Deluxe Tele is going to set you back about $800 without a case. I think with the new CA laws about using the Made in the USA label, American Stats and Teles will not be labeled that way any more. This will allow Fender to bump up the options and price of their MIM line of guitars.
