While recording the World Gone Crazy album with the Jets, we really wanted a Telecaster, Fender sent some over but they were all 'hot rodded'. Grubisa put together this vintage replica for me from swamp ash, and rewound some old pickups, even the correct cloth wire was used internally.
The result was spectacular, a completely authentic sounding Tele. It's the first thing you hear on that album ... my Scotty Moore impersonation on 'Elvis'. I then went on to use this guitar for my first blues album Blue Guitar, the Tele through a Boss SD-1 into a little 'Goldentone' amp. I still have people ask me about the guitar sound on that record.
