OK, I get it.I was hanging out with Seymour Duncan at the Dallas Guitar Show ages ago and he had the Beck Esquire (which he let me play back in his hotel room). He told me about the Beck Tele-Gib. He said the magic in that guitar was in the PU's that he wound. He also added a Gibson style stop tail piece (which I later saw on a number of other guitarists Teles into the early 70''s)On early recordings Dias's (Steely Dan) heavily modified Tele had two PAF's that had coil...
I just heard from Suit Supply about hosting a San Francisco Meetup. They will be setting up their all new Fall 2016 suits, jackets and accessories August 29th so we are looking at having a party in their Maiden Lane location on Sept 1st or 8th. I'll post more details in a separate event/Meetup thread as soon as they are finalized.
Although the thought of a humbucker in the neck position of a Tele always appealed to me, I never understood why you would want a HB in the bridge position. The classic Tele lead PU is where all the personality of a Tele originates IMO. If you want a double HB solidbody it seems there are plenty of other options that would also hold greater resale and trade value. Or, in the pic you posted, is the HB wound to sound like a Tele lead?
I've meet such an interesting assortment of people at Denimbruin. If you haven't been to one, make the effort to attend. Its such a unique opportunity to meet people involved in all areas of denim in an intimate and enjoyable setting. It is easy to hang out, grab a beer and meet people from around the world who are writers, historians, designers, production and retailers. I'm especially looking forward to this years featured guests at Standard & Strange on Sunday. See you...
How do you care for the Chromexcel natural? Clear cream polish?
I see that Standard & Strange has some special Alden pre-orders going on right now: http://www.styleforum.net/t/392829/standard-strange-official-affiliate-thread/150_30#post_8508474 The Natural Chromexcel blucher is especially nice!
Suit Supply contacted me about hosting a Styleforum Bay Area Meetup at their new San Francisco store. I'll get more information and pass it along. Suit Supply seems to be a brand that meets the needs of many Styleforum members.
Have fun guys!
