I have the pleasure of owning several TK Smith pickups and one of his Telecasters. Several months back TK sent me his Summertone pickups to try. They are a Bigbsy inspired design/tone that drop in a P90 Dog-Ear route. I have been waiting to find the right guitar to put them in and decided on a Baritone! This was not a drop-in! I had a luthier route the body and the pickguard to accommodate. The results were phenomenal. I wrote this little ditty below with the Summertones. It is an appropriate tune!
Had the great opportunity to throw down a few examples using the Carr Rambler. I had about 100 gigs with this amp this year, giving me many opportunities to get to know it. From Huge Tin Roofed Texas Dance halls to really small packed bars I was able to get absolutely killer tones from this amp. The quintessential gigging amp as it is know for. A Modern Classic!
I have recently had the privilege of working with Michael Tuttle Guitars as an artist. It is a real honor. Michael makes very high-end instruments. Classic, but refined. Known as one the best ‘fret’ men in the business. My own guitar was made to my specs and is a beautiful example of modern vintage. 2 tone burst Classic ‘S’ style with a humbucker in the bridge. A few touches like roasted neck and stainless frets are further examples on his exemplary luthiery.
I have a few video examples on the site and on my instagram page here: Rodney Gene Junior Instagram
