What style would a Byrdland be most suited for? Blues? Jazz?
One of my favorites from over 45 years ago when I was a kid playing Cat Scratch Fever and Stranglehold . Seen Ted Nugent several times live and the first time in 1979 was pretty awesome !Thread revival just because... Uncle Ted is being extremely NON-sensical here:
Also: 3 different Gibsons onstage.
I’m still amazed that Nugent came to favor Byrdlands!
The "rule" for pickups in Byrdlands and ES350Ts from the early 1960s is "it's all crazy, there is no rule".
That’s wild..well when love bites, it bites!True love exists: aged 12, Nugent saw Detroit guitarist Jim McCarty using a Byrdland onstage at a gig with Billy Lee & The Rivieras, instantly transfixed and forever bonded.
In an August 2006 interview on VH1 Classic, Ted Nugent remarked: "I'm the only guy in rock'n'roll that plays that hollow body jazz guitar and it's because in 1960 I saw Jimmy McCarty creating those big fat full chords like I do on 'Stranglehold'; I learned that from Jimmy McCarty. Remember the name Jimmy McCarty. He is as important as Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry and Les Paul...a god on guitar."
