    Is it a new instrument or an old one he has owned for awhile? It differs from all the old ones in the Ibanez catalogs from the early '70s in that they all had plate-style truss rod covers on the headstock, whereas the one he is playing recently does not.

    Any info appreciated. I love the way it sounds in his hands.

    John is unique in his phrasing and timing, but a major part of his tone is because he plays with his fingers...
    This seems to create a slight compression because of the lower attack in each note

    He plays with a pick AND his fingers. I think his AC30s are a huge part of his tone, as well. Alas, that's a subject for another day.

    There are some Uberjam videos where he playing a Tele style with rosewood fretboard, too. There are also some with Tele/AC-30 playing in the JS Organic Trio.

    Either way, I'm really enjoying the tele/AC-30 tones.
