    Wut? :lol:

    Kenny is approachable and friendly. I had the chance to meet him last year and didn't try to talk guitars at all. It was a pleasant experience.

    The guy playing the green Cassista Tele copy. Monster player. Kenny's no slouch either.

    I have seen Marty play that guitar, up close, and it really is an amazing sounding guitar.

    It sounded pretty good in 1968 too...

    These are nice guitars, my bandmate has one and with no setup, it's close, pretty good. He too had a Glaser system installed in his. Nice guitar. I'm not certain what makes it a $1300 new guitar, as is though. My bandmate acquired his on the used market for much less. They should have stuck a Glaser system in it and charged $2000 ! :)

    It's not a standard construction. Paulownia wood sandwiched between pine (super light) . Plus, I guess sparkle finish is more costly, plus they do that dumb worn stuff that is extra work, plus it has great pups n adsustable compensated bridge, plus, plus

    ..... Maybe it shud be even more expensive?

    Oh gosh! Marty and Kenny rule!

    Oh gosh! Kenny and Guthrie rule!

    And to the OP: put a MIM tele through a nice amp, and it will sound just like a good tele should, on any stage. I know, this could have been a line from Fender's marketing department (hey Fender, with small royalties it's yours) but it's true nonetheless. With a little love and tweaks, a MIM tele will also play great.

    I prefer AVRIs just because, but a Vintera sure wouldn't hold me back…

    PS: I am now having the show running in the background while working. I subliminally hear delightful licks, and pretty hilarious (to a non-American) radio comment. "Isn't that a-MA-ziiing?" "We wanna give a big shout out to meat and fish consumers!" "In this a-MA-zing night!!" "I'm such a BIG faaaa-aw-n". But Marty, Marty is the real deal. I'd love to meet and greet…

    Great clips both! Anyone what kind of tele Kenny is playing in the video quoted? There is no Fender decal on the headstock, so it might be some special build?

    Google is your friend.

    The phrase "Grand Ole Opry" was first uttered on radio on December 10, 1927. At the time, the NBC Red Network's Music Appreciation Hour, a program with classical music and selections from grand opera, was followed by Barn Dance. Opry presenter George Hay introduced the program:

    "For the past hour, we have been listening to music taken largely from Grand Opera. From now on, we will present the "Grand Ole Opry."

    Opry = hillbilly opera.

    It's a chambered Tele copy made by luthier Floyd Cassista.

    That, for me, was the missing link, hillbilly opera, thanks!
