I just registered here – I used to be all about Kenny Burrell, Joe Pass, Dexter Gordon and Cannonball Adderly (Bebop, mostly Hardbop and some modern jazz) and so on, but The swing / pre-bop / western swing bug bit me pretty hard. I am listening to a lot of Lester Young, Jimmy Bryant, Lanham, Jennings, and so on These days. Always happy to recieve recommendations what to listen to!
Currently have a tele-type on order with a local builder here: Maple neck, semi hollow mahagony Body (no f-holes, but lots of wood removed) and a TK Smith CCII with Lollars matching Bridge pickup. Have been waiting on this guitar a Long time now (almost a year). So I recently strung flatwounds on my pine Body tele – big surprise, it sounded amazing! Hope the mahagony was the right choice for Maximum woodiness.
I am going to stop here for now. talk to you soon in all these other threads!
