Heres a quick video ( I record these a lot to see how things sound ) the first line is the Tal Farlow one that tommy taught to me and the 2/5 is lifted from grady martins solo on my window faces the south. Wack them together and you got a hip little chorus over a blues. The sound is kinda bad something wrong with my speakers when I video on quicktime.November 18, 2014 at 6:21 am #1390
Nice! Is your CC pickup a TK or a Lollar? I had to change out my Bridge pickup when I switched to my TK CC II pickup because the standard Tele pickup I had was a little weak for it. The Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder was a good compliment for it. They are discontinuing them now so a lot of places are closing them out. Some good deals out there if you can find them. Enjoyed the playing.November 18, 2014 at 8:29 am #1391
My friend Don Mare has made his version of the Quarter pounder called the Big Mac. I have heard it is the Quarter pounder with more vibe. I haven’t tried it but I will get in touch with him to do some demos real soon.November 18, 2014 at 2:47 pm #1392
That sounds excellent dan some really tasty playing. I’m new to the forum just stumbled onto to tommy’s site via listening to junior Watsons playing. Who I I’ve just stumbled onto too.November 19, 2014 at 2:09 am #1393
Thanks! Its a tk cc11 gretschman same as yours I believe. In the bridge is just a stock 52 ri pup it matches up well. They are pretty even there is no real noticeable change in output which is how I prefer it and I have cc pretty high the magnet. Actually this just got me thinking the original 52ri the pup came from had a a mini humbucker in the bridge so maybe its higher output than a normal one. All I know is I couldnt stand that pup in the original guitar and I only put it into this rutters body as a temporary thing but it just sounds killer in the pine body. The whole guitar is a funny thing because I sent my original 52 body to t.k its having his c.a.r pups in it and a new neck etc. so I only put this tele together because I had the fender neck left over but it just turned out to be a really killer guitar. Im wishing now that I got a pine body for other one as well as I feel a lot of it has to do with the body. Hopefully getting that one back in december some time so I cant wait!November 22, 2014 at 6:44 am #1418
cool and clean playing and sublime tone! Can’t wait for my CCII’d tele build. Is there much of a difference between the cc and a Standard neck pu?
