    OK you guys are maybe turning my head around a little. My brother had one of those big ole Gretsch Chet Atkins models and it sounded just like "Hanky Panky", so I've always assumed that's what it was. I played on a Jazzmaster the other day and I'll admit that it's similar enough to be a possibility. The guitar in the YouTube video is a Jaguar, by the way.

    Found this

    But then I found an old vid of TJ and his band playing different instruments in the 60s for Crimson and Clover. One of them was a Gretsch. Will the world ever know?......how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop.

    Jazzmaster has the big pickups, Jag has the skinny ones. That's the way I always told them apart.

    And a whammy bar that you apparently work by spinning it around.

    Could have been a Gretsch if they sound similar....am I going to eat my shorts, or not?

    I think the "whammy bar" was how you wound it up to play. 8)
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Gentlemen, back to the topic...my ALL-TIME favorite JM album is 1959's "Wildest Guitar" by Mickey Baker ("Mickey" of "Mickey and Sylvia"--remember "Love is Strange"?).



    This album DEFINES ping pong echo. Mickey had one crazy vision, and the JM gave him free rein! Could he have conceived this on a Western-inspired Gretsch (like he played later in his career)? I seriously doubt it, and firmly believe that the JM's "look" was part of his, er, inspiration. The rest was miss Mary Jane, I think...

    I read recently that a Jazzmaster was used on Roy Orbison's "Oh, Pretty Woman".
