    Just came across this... Jerry has a nice Tele here, But any thoughts what Pickups they are?

    Ol BB is smoother than butter. Enjoyable song.

    They look like Bill Lawrence blade pickups.
    That’s my friend Kenny Penny playing the sunburst Les Paul Custom in this video, BTW.
    The Lawrence pickups sound grdat, and are hum cancelling (humbucking).

    Funny! I actually just discovered as well, and borrowed Jerry's comping @3:09. I've been drooling over this for the last two weeks, can't count how many times I've watched. B.B.'s a little hesitant in the beginning, but he cracks a smile @3:22.

    I've been a fan of both these cats forever. Thanks to you, guess I have to watch another million times!

    Excellent choice!
