Wilco & Jeff Tweedy (& Nels Cline)

Postby (linclink) » Sat Oct 01, 2016 11:56 pm

Over the last couple of years/tours my fave band in the world, Wilco, have consistently called on Rickenbackers as part of their incredible sonic arsenal. Jeff Tweedy in particular has ended up playing a few different Rickenbackers. (and on rare occasion Nels Cline with one 12-string).

~ Fireglo 381

~Fireglo 360/365 (think the arm is off it...but accent vibrato tailpiece)

~Mapleglo 360

~Jetglo 360

** And I could swear I remember a Fireglo F-hole 325 or 350 of something like that too...just can't quite recall, but remember seeing it, for the first time, at Brooklyn shows (Prospect Park) in the Summer of '13 I think it was...

He also owns
~Fireglo 330 (F-hole)

Nels Cline usually favors a Jerry Jones 3 pickup Neptune 12-String, but I have seen pictures of him with Fireglo 360-12 too.

I might post some pics or add some videos here later... Feel free to add to the fun!!

Pictures of Wilco's studio also show a '70s 4001.
