Topic: What guitar is that of Joe's?

Hey Joe or anyone else... What kind of guitar is that in the Miss You hate You Video? It's easy to say tele but I don't think it is a tele. If It is not a tele then what is it? I  think its the same guitar he uses in the New Day Yesterday DVD.

It's a Fender Telecaster with one pickup. So that means it's might be a Fender Esquire? I know they only had one pickup. But it's a Fender, regardless.

Re: What guitar is that of Joe's?

Yeah its a Fender Esquire- they were the first Fender guitars made - before the Broadcaster / Nocaster / Telecaster (in that order)...
basically Leo Fender came up with the Esquire, started to sell that, then decided to put in 2 pu's and call it the Broadcaster.  Fender got sued by Gretsch (I think it was Gretsch at least) for copywrite infringement, which is when the Nocaster came out (basically a Broadcaster without any decal on the headstock) then Fender finally settled on the name Telecaster and its stayed that way ever since.

I believe Joe's esquire is a '52 (?) I know he said something to the effect of its gotta be the loudest Esquire ever made.

Re: What guitar is that of Joe's?

heck i got a buzz if he replied to anyone....except the haters.... big_smile
still wonder why he's not here but it now comes under the category of it is what it is to me
glad they are keeping the lights on here for us

anyway good to hear from you here Josh m.
I bet he does still have that guitar. I am wondering if maybe it on instragram somewhere...but he has a bunch of similar looking (to me) ones.

the exciting thing I have to report is that I THINK i recall seeing him say somewhere recently that he's going to be re-doing the Miss You Hate You video
i mean its not thrilling because i love that video, but it was a time in his past i don't think he was thrilled about directions he was pushed in? I dunno, he disses So Its Like That album etc. and I am pretty sure I heard him say he didn't like that vid - after i had made many fun avatars from it and expressed my love for the vid and how i thought it was great. I mean preferences are preferences but as a fan it kind of bums me out when i go on and on about what i think are the best parts of Joe and his catalogue and they consistently match up with what he says he doesn't like big_smile not all the time but still...

Its still exciting...but not as exciting as a new video for a new song but I am still looking forward to it.

and I still wonder where would we be if MTV ever played that video....or if MTV was still really MTV then etc. etc.

anyway if i find more definite about the guitar i will share but i predict it may appear in the video re-do?
