    Thanks for the nice video.
    Do you know of the neck PU on the tele?
    Is that Chrometone by Harmonic Design?
    (Seems not a stock just because of the SN ratio.)
    I'm a big fan of Harmonic Design PUs, and think know Bill love theirs, too.

    Is that a 50's MIM Esquire? Looks just like mine. Been contemplating weither to add a neck pickup or not. This might be the push, always been a big Bill Frisell fan.

    Nice, thanks.
    Big beach boys fan here.

    Saw Bill play 20 years back.
    Is it just me or does he now look like Warren Buffett?

    OMG, a Tele, in the hands of a master, without reliced "UGLY" all over it…. sup wiff that.. :eek:

    and for all y'all looking for that tone… there are ten things in that shot that give him that sound… you cannot buy any of 'em, you can only develop some of your own.. ;)

    I've been obsessed with this video, I've watched it dozens of times. Such a great song, and such a wonderful transformation of it.

    And yeah, the tele is awesome and tone is gorgeous.

    Like Jim Campilongo, Frisell makes a song his own on a Tele...
    Thanks for posting.

    I still wouldn't miss a chance to see him live, but I way prefered him when he played an SG jr and had balls. Very serious balls!

    Common misconception, too often repeated here. Many tele players have ten fingers.

    What we lack is Bill's brain.

    He clearly didn't get the Fender CS memo. Jason Smith is phoning him right now...

    That was great! He has a kinda Stuart Smally vibe. I really enjoyed his playing!
