    Love me some Twitty. I was on the fence about buying my thinline until I saw an old vid where he had a similar one.

    I like this clip from the old Porter Wagoner Show. I mean they took time to set up their own gear. Vox Super Beatle!

    I’ve told this story before on the TDPRI - My first vivid memory of a telecaster was seeing this performance on Hee Haw at my cousins house....


    I love that black tele with the painted black headstock and CT initials!

    He died on my birthday in 1993.
    He’s been gone 26 years.
    My favorites are It’s Only Make Believe and Lost In The Feeling.

    Jesse Ed Davis' first gig ever was with CT's road band. He considered
    CT a great white soul singer. Damned good compliment... :cool:

    R.I.P. to both. :cry:

    His duets with Loretta were great. Thank God for Youtube. Being able to see these performers again really makes you aware as to how good they were. I hope some of the current crop of "country stars" are watching.

    He was a rockabilly cat once upon a time.
    Wish he'd kept at it

    I played the heck out of my mom's 45 of this. It had "Halfway To Heaven" on the other side

    It appears so. The video quality isn't the best, but the timeline
    looks correct. CT is playing one of those Godawlful Fender
    acoustics. So, that would be mid '60s. It does look like JED.

    Thanks for the clip, BobRob! :cool:
