Oh, you mean Buzz & Woody! Heh. Great vid!
They should have a Don Rich model of one of these. Seems to sound just like a tele.
I built one myself. I call mine a Doncaster.
I saw Don & Buck playing on flat bed trailer at a football field in San Jose and many times at John Asquaga's Nugget in Reno. He will always be my hero and in my opinion he was also the quintessential side man. Every thing he did was to make Buck look and sound good. Harmony? OMG!!!!
Just gonna drop this here, it's the first of two parts:
Anyway, that specific podcast turned me onto the influence of Bakersfield on the music I grew up listening to and enjoying, and the podcast really opened my eyes to the possibility of playing like Don and Buck.
Two of these were briefly available recently from Daves Guitars...
This is my TL-62 Japanese bound Tele. It's pretty close.
And I have the Japanese Buck Owens Tele as well.
It makes for a pretty sweet pair of guitars.
There's room for both.
Robert Cray has a CS model and a MIM model (I like the MIM better). And James Burton has a high zoot model but also had a MIM and now has a Special Edition Road Worn model (buy it through CME, supply limited).
I mentioned Don Rich to some younger player the other day in passing and he wanted to tell me about Buddy Rich. Then he starts telling me about another guy and I figured he was talking about Ray Price. I guess if you set your Price right you get Rich.
Here is mine. Custom Shop dated this build 3 weeks ago.
One of the greats of country lead guitar, for sure. He was killed about 3miles from where I’m sitting, in Morro Bay, CA. By the way, Saturday I see Albert Lee.
GFS had a silver metallic tele body for a while. I kind of hemmed and hawed and when I decided to pull the trigger they were gone. Can't believe that those (and the red, white and blue Buck Owen's models) aren't being reissued. I, for one, have no idea who Jim Root is and how possibly he has a tribute tele and Don doesn't?
They need to reissue the silver sparkle body and headstock, with black binding and just call it the Buckaroo. Guys who know about Buck and Don Rich and other guitarists who listen to recordings will know. It avoids all the estate wrangling of both artists. It could be a special run and avoid the price of the custom shop. After all it is just a Tele....
Forrest Lee made me one similar, but with no binding, or painted headstock, plus a pull string...
