    That’s a coincidence. I just found this yesterday and was going to post it.
    Earlier I took down my Christmas Lights and decorations listening to Eat A Peach, Brothers and Sisters, and Back Where It All Begins.
    Glad you did because it’s a mindf—-er. I’ve watched it three times.
    Thanks!
    Setzer’s Tele is a monster for tone and appearance. What the hell IS that thing? Anyone?
    Betts more than kept up with “the kid” which, initially, surprised me but then I realized it shouldn’t. And they were going at it so fast it was almost like listening to fiddle players.
    I’m always up for a live version of Jessica. When I first heard it in ‘73 it seemed impossible without a looper. Ah, the ignorance of youth.
    The buzz is always around Clapton, Page, Hendrix, etc but these guys are right up there.
    P.S.
    Kenny Aronson is on bass and really tore it up too.
    Thank you again for posting.

    Brian is playing a 1983 Schecter Saturn like this one.

    [​IMG]

    Up to about 1980, Schecter had been marketing high-quality replacement parts (bodies, necks, and hardware) for Tele and Strat-style guitars, as well as their own offbeat bodies and necks.

    It was around time they saw a market for full-up guitars using their own parts, so they established a custom shop and started taking orders. Pete Townshend was their first high-profile customer, and Brian didn't wait long either.

    Setzer's "tele" is a Schecter Pete Townshend model

    You should check out his "the knife feels like Justice" album, which is the most UN-Setzer album he ever did (as in NO rockabilly) but it's still awesome.

    Yeah these were the heydays of Schecter. Even the bass player seem to play a Schecter with a brass pickguard.

    Two of my very favorite players. Certainly in my top 5, both of them. Jessica's a top fiver as well.

    Interesting that, even when chicken-pickin, Betts has that airy, sweet Allman tone. And can anyone make a guitar duet soar any better than Dickey?

    THANKS for this one!

    Thanks man. I always thought Setzers first solo record (Knife Feels like justice)was underrated.

    We sure have to give him credit for trying something different, going for a Bruce Springsteen, John Cougar Mellencamp style of songwriting and pulling it off.

    He had a Guild Signature model at the time which STILL has people go "HUH?" when they see it.

    I mean, double locking Kahler Whammy, EMG pickups, it's a world apart from his Gretsch 6120 but at that point in time it was making perfect sense with the music he was making.

    Thanks for that! I'm grinning from ear to ear (w/ a chromatic run buzzing in my head).
