I think I have mentioned that eight years ago or so my wife and I explored the option to have him to play at our wedding. The cost was more than we could afford, but he was really cool about it.
Most of the time when I watch telecaster masters play with skills, technique, and tricks I could never dream of I just sort of watch from a safe distance where even I *could*
play that well I'd not want to be such a hot dog playing nebbish show-off tunes. Jim Campilongo is one of those hot dogs that plays and sounds so good that I'd love to have his skills. He is a hot dog made of unicorn meat.
I look at that guitar, knowing that I don't bond with teles nor do I need another guitar at all, and I WANT it.
Wow! That would have been so very wonderful if he could have played at your wedding. Y'all have exceptional taste.
For my first wedding, we got a cover band from Lake City, MN.
1. Mummmmm, unicorn hotdog.
2. Jim is one of those guys who only uses his powers for good. To me, he's the Nels Cline of the Telecaster. (BTW, he and Nels do a duet on Jim's new live album: Live At Rockwood Music Hall Nyc
3. Maybe it's because I've got mine top-loaded, but it's got midrange timbres that jump out; it's an electric version of my Waterloo WL-12. Both are very basic, stripped-down instruments where you can feel the grain against your hand (not on the back of the Hahn's neck- it's polished smooth) and both have an expressive vocal quality. The top-loader is more slinky and reminds me of Nelvis and my JM Jag.
4. Neither Chihoe nor Jim are paying me to say any of this, nor did I get a discount.
5. A Hahn Model C is less expensive than a Fender AVRI, or whatever they're calling them now.
