    I probably read this when it was first published, but that didn't prevent me from enjoying it again.
    Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for posting - I was tempted to post about the Bob Bain Tele in the Tedesco thread myself, but refrained from doing so after that thread went off the rails...

    my bad, I’ve heard him a million times without knowing who played

    I've seen that guitar at one or two guitar shows. He used to let it make the rounds. And thanks for that great article on a great musician.

    Man that is a great article and those videos with Bill Frisell, Bob Bain and Dennis Budimir are just wonderful. I will be going back for a second look with a guitar playing friend.
    You can’t wipe the smile off Bill Frisell’s face.:)

    Thanks for that! The videos of those guys playing are colossal! They are really listening to each other.

    Nothing wrong with a humbucker on the old Blackguard. Purists may complain, but it greatly ups the performance of the ax.

    Read the whole article. Maybe you'll reconsider.
