    It's Grandpa's Nocaster's birthday! 67 years ago today Tadeo Gomez initialed the neck & this Nocasters story began.
    Thanks to all here on TDPRI for your help, comments & for following along these past couple of years.
    A special thank you to all the guitarists, beginner to pro, that have contributed to my guitars history & story. Had some fun we did!
    May the adventure and good times continue. Thanks for listening!

    Here is anouther video of the 17 year old(!) Nick Mardon playing Grandpa's Nocaster for some Chuck Berry's ''Johnny B Goode".
    We recorded this before we did the Emerald City Guitars video with him. This was his first jam night with the Nocaster & was the reason I started stalking him, lol.
    I have several videos of Nick playing Grandpa's Nocaster now & I will try and post a blues number or two from him later. Kid can play! Enjoy

    I finally have a YouTube channel up and running. There are only a dozen video on there so far, but it's up. (only took me a couple years, lol)
    There are clips and videos of different guitarists playing Grandpa's Nocaster at several venues. You should be able to get a decent sound sample from them.
    There is even a clip of me introducing Grandpa's Nocaster for Nick at the Highway 99 Blues Club in Seattle.
    Here's the link & thanks again to all. Please enjoy

    For those of you who wanted to hear a good sound sample from Grandpa's Nocaster, this is a great sound clip that Dan Galanti put together for me on our latest trip to Alaska.
    This was an improv he did after the Nocasters set up to sound check. Except for most of the bass, it's all the Nocaster. Dan used about every setting on the guitar; neck PU, bridge PU & both of them with different "blend" settings.
    This is the best sound sample I have of Grandpa's Nocaster so far.
    Audio only... Please enjoy

    I know there are a few people here who might be interested in what the sound clip "Loop & Noodle" was played on, recorded with plus any effects that were used.
    Here is a quote from Dan.
    "Just a little quick improv on Twisted's Grandpa's Nocaster when He was over in my studio. I used PODHD on a tweed setting with no effects. I put minimal reverb on in the program to give a little depth. Man that guitar sounds great!"

    Thanks for listening
