Here's another email from a Guitarz reader:
Steve Albini (of the eighties noise rock group Big Black; he's in a band called Shellac now) is a hero of mine, and I was wondering if you could identify this guitar for me. (See photo above)It looks like a custom doublecut Tele-type guitar. Fender had a similar-looking Korean-made model, the TC-90, in their catalogue in the the early 2000s. However that does not look like a Fender logo on the headstock, so I'm not sure what this guitar is. Is anyone else reading this able to identify it? Answers in the comments, please.
He used several with the band, but he used that one on certain songs because he would pick behind the bridge (I tell you, Big Black's music is an amusing way to clear a room). He is famous for exclusively using Travis Bean guitars in Shellac now.
Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
