    Got to see Bill Frisell and Julian Lage perform together last night in small, maybe 300 seat, concert hall. Checked out the gear, of course.

    The stage had a smallish 335ish Collins with small humbuckers in front of a Deluxe Reverb with one unidentifiable pedal. Didn’t get that close. There was also the expected Tele, never got close enough to see the pickups, connected to a large string of pedals into a Hot Rod Deluxe.

    Had a laugh when they came out and Frisell grabbed the Collins and Lage the Tele. Julian never touched any of his pedals while Frisell constantly adjusted his one. Sounded like some kind of Delay Reverb combo.

    The music was most excellent. Mostly American Songbook. Shenandoah had me in tears. Incredible sound.

    ahhhh...I'm so jealous I'm searching for that gig on youtube everyday to see if I can hear just a single song. I'll keep waiting!

    Did they play any of Lage songs?

    Hi Ted,

    Bill's single pedal on these dates has been a Strymon Flint (reverb+tremolo in one pedal).

    Julian's pedalboard comprises a mini Turbo Tuner, JHS Superbolt, JHS Morning Glory and a Strymon Flint.

    Embarrassed to admit I’m not familiar with Lage’s discography, a situation I will begin to remedy today. There were a couple of songs with, choppy?, rhythms led by Lage that I assumed were his.

    If I am not mistaken, the Deluxe Reverb that JL uses onstage these days is a Magic Amplification Vibro Deluxe.

    Might well have been. I could tell it was an odd deluxe and guessed a hot rod.

    I was in the same concert yesterday. So great. I was in tears, too.

    I posted in this in another thread. From the show at UCLA last week. Looks like Julian has a P90 in his Tele.

    actually that might be a lollar p90 staple pickup...doesnt use screw pole pieces and bar magnets like a typical p90...uses rectangular alnico magnets as the actual pole pieces...

    Bill was playing that Collings at a show at Jazz at Lincoln Center a few weeks back, I wasn't crazy about his tone that night, through a silverface princeton

    Caught them at the Ent Center in Colorado Springs Friday, Dec 6. Full house of around 300 and except during the applause, you could hear a pin drop during the whole performance. Songs ranged from Days of Wine and Roses, a couple of blues, Shenandoah, Seven Come Eleven, All the Things You Are, Someday My Prince Will Come and more that I can't recall or don't know by name.

    I really hope they release a live recording from one of these shows during this short tour. It really was a very special evening!

    I haven't seen the Superbolt on Lage's board in a while. It seems to have been replaced by a Shin-ei B1G and a Boss EQ-pedal.

    Both great players and guys...

    Frisell plays with Lucinda Williams, and Lage plays with Wilco, and that's enough to vouch for them in my opinion...

    LOL, perspectives differ... "Wilco plays with Lage? I should check them out..."

    Julian's Tele with a P90 is a new creation from Nacho Banos.

    FYI the Collings is a custom I-30 LC with humbuckers. Fully hollow with trestle bracing.
