Three guitars, three strange decisions
Feat. Carson Ellis whispering "action" at the top 🤓
Bob Mould! Love all his iterations. I’ve been particularly enjoying nostalgic listenings to Sugar. Here’s a very interesting interview with Bob Mould about the making of Copper Blue and the gear he used..... that ‘87 strat he uses has always been a source of eye candy for me: https://www.musicradar.com/news/guitars/interview-bob-mould-talks-sugars-1992-album-copper-blue-528887
Now all I can picture is, Colin, coming out with a Flying V to start “Make You Better”.
Thank you! As a person who doesn’t play guitars , but likes them, that was very interesting . Yes sir, you are a hoot!
So glad someone mentioned Bob Gould! It reminded me of the AV Club Decemberists cover of “If I Can’t Change Your Mind”, which I adore. It disappeared from YouTube for a while and slipped my mind-thrilled to find it again!!!
Lovely episode of “Gear Talk”. I saw The Decemberists with you playing the Gretsch in Winnipeg during WTWWBW tour. Nice to know the back story. Can you do Gear Talk on pedals? Pretty please, Colin ❤️
Always been a fan of Gretsch guitars. I have an Electromatic in the sea foam green, which I always thought was the perfect color until I saw yours..... quite a beautiful color your impetuous decision makings led you to.
I fell in love with a Gretsch 6125 in smoke green that David Schelzel from The Ocean Blue used to play back in the early 90's. I spent a lot of time in guitar shops playing that guitar, but never dropped the money on one for myself.
Thank you for another episode of Gear Talk, I really enjoy them.
Thank you. You, Sir, are a hoot!
Oh this was enjoyable. And I totally agree with the whole relic thing. I once owned a Fender Road Worn 50s Precision Bass that was made in 2017 but was supposed to look like it has been played since 1957. I just couldn't get comfortable with it and it and how fake it was. And when I saw others, they all had the wear in the exact same spot. And like that belt buckle wear, some of it was so excessive or just in a weird spot that would never get so worn. I loved the flying V story. We've all lusted over guitars or basses that our heroes played. Good for you for getting one and keeping it. Thanks for sharing, Colin!!
Very entertaining and self-effacing.
Love those big old Gretsch guitars.
Once again, even though I’ve not seen it, I already love it.
