  1. Gotcha! I was still thinking stock pickups... I like the DDs.
  2. I like all the twists and turns... you might be missing out. Give this song two minutes and see if the groove doesn’t grab you. And I would almost swear Jeff Tweedy is channeling some early 70s solo John Lennon here....
  3. That’s funny, I saw Nels Cline and Julian Lage from the front row at UT’s Cactus Cafe. Less than 5 feet away from both of them. I got to speak with Cline afterward and he asked me if I enjoyed the show. I told him “I’m not sure. I was lost the entire night!” It was an honest answer. Half the time if you’d have asked me the key or time signature, I would not have been certain of either! Those guys were out there... I did enjoy listening to something outside my norms and challenging myself a little. I also enjoy the Nels Cline Singers, but I think he’s perfect for Wilco. The whole band is great but he pushes things in weird directions, and I mean that as a huge compliment. Jeff Tweedy is a great songwriter and a solid guitarist. I like the way he and Cline mesh, but still leave room for the rest of the band to excel. Love Glenn Kotche’s drumming, too!
  4. I’m going both nights in Austin. Wilco always puts on a good show!
  5. Thank God! That’s one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands. And I agree with you completely, Nels Cline fits into all the weirdness perfectly.
  6. Oops, I forgot to come back and post a pic. Here's mine...
  7. I’ve got one. Will add a pic in a few minutes...
  8. Absolutely!!! Gotta admit, I’m a little sad I never got to see one of Chris’s guitars onstage at a Steely Dan show.
  9. I have one of these 90th anniversary Celestions in an open-back Mojotone cabinet. It sounds great, like a classic Celestion should. (I’m using that cab with a 17 watt Fulton-Webb head.) https://celestion.com/product/143/g1235xc/ Thought I was an alnico speaker guy until I found out this model has a ceramic magnet in it. I really like this speaker! Just FYI, here’s the cab it’s installed in. https://www.mojotone.com/Cabinets_x/Cabinets_xx/British-18-Watt-Style-Guitar-Amplifier-1x12-Speaker-Extension-Cabinet You should ask the Mojotone folks if this speaker would be a good match for your cab.
  10. My friend Chris Forshage built 3 guitars for Walter Becker, but so far I haven’t seen any mention of them. Please let me know if anyone comes across a listing. I doubt I’d be able to buy any of them, but it would be cool to see some Forshages keeping company with all that great gear!
  11. Mine is from the mid-70s. A previous owner converted it from silverface to blackface specs (which I’m told are very minor changes) and added a black faceplate. It’s a great amp - small, light, killer tone, relatively pedal friendly but sounds just about perfect on its own. Here it is next to my EBMM Albert Lee, my favorite Strat-style guitar.

  13. Yeah, my ‘96 also has Seths. Great guitar - congrats!!!
