    Sounds amazing!
    In fact, it sounds almost exactly like my self-made partscaster with its Bootstrap Pickups Pretzel Set. ;)

    Ummmm.... A dime store ukulele would sound great in that guy's hands. I would much rather have his skill than that guitar!

    A new Tele with any good pickups will get you 99.9% of the way there. Vintage guitars are now just more overpriced trinkets for those with too much money and too little brains.

    Man, that's just some tasty playing. And that twang. He is all over that fretboard! Thanks for sharing.

    and your guitar is probably easier to play too. I can't deal with 7.25 finger boards.

    That reverb unit though, I think need one of those. On a few of last months videos they had it set up with the brown deluxe they recently sold and ohh yeah...

    sure sounded like a good bridge pickup..

    in a test like that I like to hear him play the 52, then plug straight in to a modern std tele to hear the comparison ..same player.amp settings...

    It would take a lot more than $33K to make me sound like Guthrie...

    Well, see, as cool as Walter Carter and his wife are , that’s the last thing they would do , because part of the job of being a vintage dealer is perpetuating the belief that a real ‘52 Tele is the only way you can get that sound.

    Now , as vintage-collecting boomers turn into vintage-liquidating boomers, the next generation has to be groomed and “educated” into the cult of vintage.

    The writing is on the wall. They’re just trying to delay as many people from reading/understanding it as possible.

    One of these days, those "vintage" guitars will be sticking up out of one of those paper barrels you see, with two for a dollar on them. Everyone who collects them should send me money not to buy one. If I ever bought a vintage guitar, the market would tank within forty eight hours, two weeks and it would be unlawful to have one in your possession.

    Hear hear. Great teacher too. I take his "lessons" and that guy has opened the instrument up for me in myriad ways... the playing is endless inspiration.
