    I go back and forth between the southern Bobby Womack/Reggie Young Tele-style tones of the mid to late 1960's, like this:



    Then again I love the NYC Atlantic Records, Gibson Jazz box stuff like this:





    This is why I own six Telecasters and one 1968 Gibson Byrdland

    I think Bo Diddley has some great tone and unreal rhythm. So much was done with so little. No fussin over pedals and pickups!
