A Strange B-16

TK Smith

My friend Deke Dickerson sent me this photo a few months back and I thought that a couple of you might like it. It’s of the Fender powered Smokey Smith band and I thought the lead guitarist might be Morrie Jones. But, after looking other photos I’m not sure. The interesting thing though is the Bigsby B-16. It’s reversible for both left and right handers. Maybe it’s a one of Bigsby’s prototypes? The tele also looks to have a bridge pickup in the neck position, and a selector switch and another knob up front. I love modified teles.
