    Joe Ely - If You Were A Bluebird

    ... for me, this has long been a much-loved song, so much so that I recorded it years ago. I guess you probably don't need to listen to my recording if you already love Joe Ely's version, or Emmylou's, but if you feel that you have to hear every version out there of this sweet song, then I...

    Yes, Tone Quest, that's the very thing. Lots of different options.

    Somewhere Wrighty there may well be a sunburst guitar with your name on it - you just haven't found it yet! As for the skunk stripe thing, presumably Fender has arranged its neck-manufacturing process in such a way that all the truss rods get fitted from the back of the neck, regardless of...

    Yes, you're right. In fact I do have a standard MIM Tele, but it isn't sunburst, so I guess I missed a trick there!

    Hi Danb541. Initially, on seeing your first photo I thought your Les Paul looked perfectly fine with its chrome pickup covers. Then , scrolling down, I saw the second photo and I liked the way the black in your guitar's sunburst was accented by the black coils and the black pickup surrounds...

    Hi ponycar. I've just been playing the Cabronita, so to try and answer your question I have just done an A/B test with it and the Nashville, to compare neck pickups. Firstly of course, it isn't a true Filtertron pickup in the Cabronita. It is what Fender called their "Fideli'tron". I'm not...

    Thanks folks. The different pickup configurations on the three guitars provide plenty of variety of tones and they're all equally nice to play. The weights do vary a bit though and I'm at an age now where an instrument's weight has a big effect on how often I'll feel like playing it. If a...

    For no particular reason, other than it being a beautiful sunny day here, I thought I would line up and photograph my three sunburst Teles together, (well to be more exact, a 2006 Esquire, a 2003 Nashville and a 2013 Cabronita - all three are Mexican-built guitars).

    Curb find in need of repairs

    Hi Rolling Bender. Lots of good advice on here already. I am fond of old 1960s Fender Newporters, so much so that about 12 years ago, I put together a four-minute video about one of mine: I still have that guitar, in fact I'm looking at it right now...

    Should I or shouldn't I (old Fender Palomino)

    ... or, (and to be clear, I'm not advising this), you could go off in an entirely different direction... This is my old late '60s Fender Newporter, (from the same lineage as your Palomino). It got all smashed up and then reborn again about 15 years ago...

    Reverb pedal for 70's Vibro Champ

    Hi kuch. Like you, I also have an old 1970s Fender Vibro Champ. In fact I've actually owned it since the '70s and it is still going strong. I use it regularly for recording and it was in action only yesterday. I see no point in spending a whole lot of money on vintage reverb units, when...

    Peavey T-15 - a photo from 40 years ago...

    Hi HaroldHill. Yes, same here. Peavey amps were the backline - and the backbone - of lots of bands. I've still got a couple of small '80s Peavey Studio Chorus combos sitting under my workbench in the garage!

    Peavey T-15 - a photo from 40 years ago...

    ...while I'm at it, for any Peavey aficionados here, I might as well post a couple of more recent guitar photos. Here, not looking too bad for guitars that are both around 40 years old, is a sunburst Peavey T-15 guitar that I've got, along with an all-natural finished one too...

    Peavey T-15 - a photo from 40 years ago...

    Another photo from my archive! More music gear from the '70s and '80s. This one's from about eleven or twelve years ago I think. Two sunbursts! My Music Man 210-65 with my Peavey T-60 and Peavey T-27...

    Peavey T-15 - a photo from 40 years ago...

    ...thirty years or so after the first photo in this post, here is another Peavey guitar photograph, this time from 2014. The guitar is my Peavey T-27. I've still got it but haven't taken it out of its case for a little while. I must give it a run sometime soon, it is a very versatile...

    Peavey T-15 - a photo from 40 years ago...

    Looking back through my old photos from exactly 40 years ago, I unearthed this one from Feb/March 1982. In it I'm playing my short-scale Peavey T-15. As I recall, it had a dark brown/metallic bronze finish. At the gig back then I would have been playing it through a Music Man 1 x 12 combo...

    Old Peavey Pacer Question

    I've got two old Peavey Pacers in my garage. I expect they probably still work, although I haven't dug them out for a couple of years. What I particularly liked about the Pacer was its large cabinet, because it meant that I could sit on it if I wanted to when I played!

    Anyone successfully (or Happy) found an affordable/cheap Slope Shoulder (J45) acoustic?

    Hi dreamingtele, I bought a secondhand Epiphone EJ-45 about six or seven years ago and it has turned out to be a pretty good guitar. It isn't a Gibson J-45 of course, but then again it cost me only a tiny fraction of the price of a Gibson. When I was younger I used to own a couple of nice...
