Found this interesting picture of Steve and Eddie Floyd with a pair of identical (white) blond Teles. The Telecaster was obviously the guitar of choice with soul players in the 60's. In late 1963 Steve bought 2 Telecasters - one which was tuned in the standard tuning, and one that he tuned in open E "'cos that's the way Otis played it". You can bet that it's the same one that Eddie's playing in the pic. Steve brought both these Teles with him on the Stax/Volt European Tour in 1967, and one of them was stolen, according to Steve. The first Tele type guitar that Steve owned, he got from Duck Dunn. It was a 1959 blond Esquire that was used for the recording of the first Booker T & the MG's album (including "Green Onions"). It's the same Esquire he used on "Minnie the Moocher" in the Blues Brothers movie. Just a bit of trivia for fans of The Colonel and his Teles.
