    Lowrie is in his 20s and has low mileage in MLB. Why is he not playing?

    If he really knew les pauls it would be a 1956 or 1957. 1956 was the last year of the single coil AlNiCo pickups. 1957 was the year Gibson first went with the humbuckers, and they still sound the best.

    I am a fender man myself carnie, born and bred.  but my favorite rock guitarist is billy gibbons (well, pre-1983 or so), so i appreciate what a les paul can do.  Just wondering whether Softy's spelling is intentional, and if so, why.

    I didn't catch the spelling. I like Fenders too, Hendrix and EC certainly worked some magic on stratocasters, and I've always loved teles as a country/rockabilly guitar.

    1. He's hitting less than .050 in his last 25 At bats.
    2. He's in his 20's, but has the baseball player body of a 50 year old.
    3. He can't field.
    4. He's hurt.

    Anything else?

    Yeah, funny thing about the tele, given its primitive design, is that it is actually quite versatile.  Great for noisy art rock too (see Sonic Youth, Pixies).  But the best and most tasteful purveyor of a tele growl, to me, is Steve Cropper.

    Lowrie has simply been ineffective at the plate, especially in crucial situations much like Crawford.  Aviles should be playing in place of Lowrie at all positions right now.  Mike is a better hitter and equal fielder.

    lesspaul is a professional musician's standard slight on inferior luthier design and craftwork that is Gibson. That said, 1958 was the final year of better quality Gibson guitar work, and was the chosen favorite guitar of one of popular music's best stage performers, but not professional musical talents.

    Most American quality crafts ended with the "retirement" of the first entitlement generation.

    Danny Gatton is probably my favorite tele player, followed closely by Steve Cropper and Albert (the iceman) Collins.

    right, but why the misspelling?  Intentional?

    "less paul" is a slight, for the second intentional time.

    I collect guitars, as well as play them. I have a 1918 Gibson O.

    I guess you are Softy???   Can't believe I'm going to agree with you twice in one comment!  :(

    1)   Lowrie does seem to be Soft!  I hear he hurt his finger & is seeing J.D. Drew for rehab ideas???

    2)  The raid on the Gibson Les Paul plant is an outrage!  All Liberals should be outraged!!!!  All Americans should be outraged!

    Having said that.  I would like to go back to hating Softy!    :)

    I really don't like this guy!  I don't like his demagogic politics, or his race baiting social tactics!  :(

    It sure is fun hating him though :)

    Chet plays a Gretsch. A country gentleman, I believe.

    No, Chet played a Gretsch model 6120. Chet later endorsed a later model Gretsch 6122 marketed as a "Country Gentleman", after a prior popular Atkins' 1953 instrumental.  As with Jimmy Page and other professional musicians, they endorse new series models but continue to record and perform with the original guitars models which are maintained by luthiers. Most guitar professionals will use other brands and models for different sounds, affects and ease of playing for varied songs and rhythms, but always favor the original guitar. The best musicians are session musicians, not pop music celebrity performers and recording acts. A few session musicians posess the visual stage presence and/or vocal tenor to reach celebrity status. See Glen Campbell. One of my regular local gig partners was one of Glen Campbell's chosen Nashville studio banjo musicians, when Campbell moved to LA. Studio musicians who did not write and copywrite recordings that reached hit status did not make much money.             

    Sadly, Chet Atkins only plays in heaven and on recordings. He passed away over ten years ago.  

    For you hobby musicians out there, the music business is entirely different than musical peforming art. It is dominated by unions and media empires that market it based upon cultural fad, and the performers are typically image props, not talented musical artists. The recent biography of Phil Spector is one of the best quick reads on the ugly jungle that is the music celebrity business.

    I think I know who you are referring to. Terrific player.

    As for Chet, he and his one-time protege` MR. Jerry Reed Hubbard now play to sold out audiences in heaven.
