I dig Jason Isbell, Brad Paisley, SRV,
I’m not into signature models.
I think the issue here should be how does it play and sound?
Trust rod cover and etc are a non thing... to me and most of the Free World!
I like it. When I saw it I thought it would be a $3,000 artist vanity guitar but at a list of $1,499 I’d consider it.
That was my (non) issue.
I played Reunions on the way in this morning to atone for it.
The ugly plastic trussrod hole ruins it all.
Check out his CDs "Southeastern and Nashville Sounds." Both are really good.
I don't like the stolen valor look, but lots of people seem to dig relics.
That is a bit strange, especially considering it represents additional cost of production: A number of extra steps and additional material. Weird.
The modified bridge is something I’d go for.
I also think that it's strange to make that a feature.
Has a RW board with skunk stripe ever existed?
Is Jason known for playing a Telecaster? I think of him as a Gibson or Gretch + Bigsby player.
I confess I haven't followed his solo career but I've can't remember seeing him pictured with a Telecaster when he was in the Drive-By Truckers.
This has been discussed before.
I saw a yt demo of the guitar. The pickups sound amazing to me. If I find a set that someone swapped out I'd probably but then for my next partscaster
I rather like it myself. I’ll have to put it on my wish list.
I hardly know anything about Jason Isbell but ever since I saw this guitar the first time, I found it interesting and beautiful in its' own special way.
I think it is worth pointing out that it is not a copy of a guitar of his but a guitar based on his ideas about what he would like and prefered in other Telecasters. I don't remember where I read it, but he has stated that he would like for it to appeal to people who are not fans. So the fact that I like it makes him succesful. I alse like the Hynde Telecaster. And I like the fact that these are available at prices much lower than a lot of stuff in this category. As much as I like Bonamasse his "signature" Telecaster, which is a copy of a particular Telecaster he bought used, can be bought for $8500. Absurd in my opinion.
I had no idea it was priced that well
Yes, this. He does a video of it where he explains that it takes the basic body, neck pickup, and a couple other appointments from a Custom Shop Tele, combines with the bridge pickup and a few other odds and ends of a particular 60's Tele he has. Also, while I'm also not a huge fan of fake relic'ing, I know there are some areas where 10 years of wear makes a guitar feel way better than new, so why not include it.
Saw him at a free concert at LL Bean. He's good. Also saw him open for Ray LaMontagne.
It has now.
But why though?
