Yeah, buddy. I tried more horizontal separation, but that wasn't exactly interior-decorator-approved. The vertical separation works really well, though.
Not exactly a portable rig, but if I really wanted to sound my absolute best without post-performance processing, all three would have to go. If there was no house PA, all four. They sound great at any volume, even really, really low. Root-5 9ths and 13ths just melt and run down the walls.
I suppose not. At least, the name doesn't ring a bell.
There may well be something special about MY Tele (which, as you know, is not a Fender). People have been going "oooh!" over it in recordings for years now, even when they have no idea it's a Tele (seeing as how my '92 Std sounds like one, anyway).
The thing's got mojo, and I think I know why. Hopefully, you'll play it someday soon.
