Rory acquired this Telecaster Deluxe around the time of the Notes From San Francisco recordings in 1977/1978.
“I got a Fender Tele-Deluxe with the humbuckers, might as well see what they’re like. There’s no doubt they have that heavy fat sound the single-coils don’t have, but the main problem with most guitars with humbuckers, until recently, is that they used to put the wrong values in the tone pots and volume pots, so when you took your volume down to 8 the guitar went dead, and you couldn’t get that natural fade away sound.”
