"When I played with the Brooklyn indie-rock band Parts and Labor my guitar was a 1972 Fender Custom Reissue Telecaster. They didn’t like the way it sounded. It was piercing and not full enough, it was fine for live shows but they were going to be recording and they encouraged me to buy a new guitar for that. I had always been interested in the Jazzmaster and Jaguar models but never had the money to buy one. Since it was being demanded of me, I found this one at South Side Guitars in Brooklyn. It was a 1995 Japanese model so I could afford it. I fell in love with it and started using it for Noveller stuff. There is still one song that doesn’t sound right called “Bleach Beach”—it needs the piercing sound of the Telecaster."more
