    “It’s so simple, but it’s so versatile. I could just use it for…,” he continues, trailing off. “[I can] just go to any kind of extreme.” Like Frisell’s musicianship, the instrument boasts a rare adaptability as well as a clean-slate purity; in other words, it allows the player to cast a wide stylistic net while seeking out a personal voice. And its telltale characteristics, both physical and tonal, can offer the possibility of an alternative to jazz-hollowbody clichés. As guitarist Jim Campilongo puts it, “To me, Louis Armstrong doesn’t sound like a Gibson ES-175 through a Polytone amp.”

    YES!!!....I, too play a lot on neck pickup...or middle selector position.....rarely on bridge only. All those guys who weld their p/u switch (figuratively) on bridge are just missing out on what's available.
