    Default The Johnny Cat Tele

    Took me a while to get this one done and it was my first Tele build. Man John was thrilled! I watched like one of my kids was leaving on a first date. I waited through the entire first set to see him tune and he never touched the tuners. This was at Blanco's which from what I've heard is one of Houston's oldest bars. Very Honky Tonk and John has a Rockabilly edge to his music. He played the crap out of the Johnny Cat. I'm the short guy in the last pic. Actually I'm not the short guy; I'm the normal sized guy standing next to the freakishly tall guys! The guy on the left is my good friend Chuck that helps with the inlay work because it would keep me from getting anything else done.



    Not the Rock that everyone here is accustomed to, but good music and really the root of the Rock we have today.

    i know exactly where that is! I used to work down the street from there...I used to work on Edloe between West Alabama and Richmond...I can't believe I've never been there before...I'm going to have to check that place out soon...I take it they play mostly honky tonk and rockabilly?

    yeah, it's definitely a honky tonk in the truest sense of the term.

    i'm going to have to check it out...it's been a long time since I was out and i'm kind of burned out on the places I used to hang out at...so much of the scene here in Houston inside the loop is full of the "are you cool enough to be here" bullshit hipsters that it's just not fun anymore...even places like Lolas are just not the same as they were even 5-6 years ago. I've been looking for a cool place to spend time listening to good music without pretense and without everyone sizing everyone up to see if they're going to forever ruin the sacred balance of their club/bar simply by being there. You know what I mean?

    On an aside, I was just on your site, I see you're here in Houston. I think I'm going to be contacting about something I want to have made!

    Check out The Derrick Tavern at Eldridge and Memorial out on the west side; I spent a lot of time there in the past and I still know the owner. It's a mixture of R&R and a little Country, but not too much.
    My site is giving me fits right now and I'm trying to get it fixed. Thanks for checking it out; it's about to go under a major reconstruction and my products are changing some too.

    I can't believe nobody noticed the blonde in the cowboy boots with the drumstick... She's the 1st thing I noticed in the picture. Is she playing the hi-hats or something?

    Ha! I was waiting for someone to comment on her. You just won a free membership on vhlinks so now you can post in the forums. Oh, wait... you obviously won that prize already; I'll have to think of something else.

    Yes, she's playing the hi-hat.
