I can't remember the exact name of the stompbox, but the one put out by Wampler was really, really good to my ear.

I like tech21's version, also has a speaker sim if you're in a pinch.

If you can find an old Marshall Guvnor, that's the best Marshall in a box I've ever played. Nels Cline agrees.

I love the electro harmonix pedals and my allen&heath mixer!

Found the DSL40 with a Creamback already in it from Sweetwater for a good price for a demo unit. It's on it's way here.

Here's a good tip:
If you want to stop buying guitars, make your next desired purchase something super rare so that it's near impossible for you to find.

I'm looking for one of these:

Deets?

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?

A coil split in the bridge humbucker would likely work too.

It's a Fender Japan copy of the Tele-Gib Seymour Duncan cobbled together that was used by Jeff Beck on Blow by Blow.
I don't know why I've always loved the idea of a two humbucker Tele, but Beck and all the Steely Dan guys from the 70s can't be that wrong! Though I think Beck has regretted the trade he made for it (he traded an Esquire to SD) ever since.

I think Johnny 5 has a signature dual humbucker Tele now.

Fender made those Tele deluxes with wide range humbuckers in the 70s, but I never wanted one of those. It's this particular one I want. Plus I love the MIJ stuff.

The same reason you'd want a humbucker in the bridge of a strat, or any 25.5" scale guitar?

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)

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90


On early recordings Dias's (Steely Dan) heavily modified Tele had two PAF's that had coil taps and a PU switch in the upper bout where you would find it on a Les Paul.. (At that time Walter Becker was playing heavily modified basses) But if you want the tone of Elliot's Steely Dan's "Reelin In The Years" solo that was played on a vintage Strat with a humbucker in the neck position and run through a massive, solid state Ampeg bass amp because that was the only amp they had that day.




Another pic:




Jeff Skunk Baxter, while in Steely Dan, often played yet another heavily modified Tele for liver performances (as well as Strats). Note the Stop tail piece and two unknown pick ups and Strat neck.





By the way, Seymour claims to have been given the Beck Esquire in return for delivering the Tele-Gib. But in a recent interview about his guitar collection, Beck is still clearly pissed about that "story" claiming it wasn't true and irritated that Seymour never returned it to him.
