I've been trying to get this extraordinary tone from my stock mim tele for ages. I know Julian is running a boutique tele into a tweed champ which has quite a different characteristic compared to my blues junior. But I've been obssessing over this tone... I hear it in my dreams! Possible pick up swap? Pedal? Amp? I'm going to get a set of 11's after these 10's break or wear down to get closer. Who needs to bend on the high e string anyway right?
