    They were showing on TV the Navy? band downtown (in DC) and the guitar player had some kind of dark wood Tele clone.

    One song has a bit of a tremolo effect and I saw him grab the body and neck and yank it to get that effect.

    Good player. Much better than me. Full time job as a musician and health benefits!

    one of the interesting things about the DC. area is when guys from the service bands show up as subs or band members. Fantastic players.

    Until the epidemic I played in a Gypsy jazz band with a guy whose real job is violin in the us marine orchestra. Holy hell is he a great musician

    This little Navy combo was playing pretty tight, covering a lot of pop ground

    The Tele ( ugly wood/stain) looked like a Suhr? Probably a great pro player guitar.
    The guitarist was pretty good, and the singers ( and band) got into it!

    ( I'm from DC area, live in NoVa always loved seeing the free military concert bands for free, as a kid)
