    Recorded I think, with an Esquire, but played often live with a Fender Jazzmaster ( at least clips I've seen)


    I think of Don Rich with Buck Owens also Buck Owens himself and Roy Nichols with Merle Haggard

    Excellent guitar work in that video.

    Don't tell anyone, but I think Dwight might have mistakenly put on his wife's pants.

    RE Dwight Yoakum. Violin (fiddle) gets in the way. Classic country ax-playing I agree

    That's what an Esquire is supposed to sound like!

    it sounds so good. Please educate me. The "solos" he's taking, is he basically playing the chords all over the neck as opposed to any sort of scales?

    Seen Dwight in concert once....a lady in the audience snapped her "upper undergarment" at him....and it absolutely nailed the mic stand perfectly....hung there the rest of the night.
    It was an impressive shot.

    This picture of the concert shows Luther Perkins holding an Esquire, and his brother Carl Perkins holding an archtop :) Edit: Luther and Carl Perkins were not brothers. Sorry for the confusion 20201028_155407.jpg
