Big Head Todd playing a CF Guitar
We went to see my favorite band last week (Big Head Todd & the Monsters), and we were pleasantly surprised to see Todd playing a Blackbird. He used it on a few tunes that he usually uses a National Resophonic. He was running it through his pedal board, and the tones ranged from acoustic to raw and cutting electric with a slide. You just couldn't get all those tones from the resonator, or a conventional acoustic.

Have seen him using a SG Doubleneck at times, and it would have been cool to have seen him using an Emerald Chimaera, or X20-OS. There are usually YouTube vids of his new stuff, so I'm sure with a new album in the works there will be vids of him playing the Blackbird.

It is great to see the CF Wave gaining momentum! I am really gassing for an Emerald X7-OS now.

I have a pic. If there is a way to insert a JPEG here, I don't see it.

You need to upload the pic to a site like Flickr, then you can use the "Insert Image" icon to link to the photo.

There is a show gallery in the link. One of the pics is of Todd playing the Blackbird. Maybe it will work. Don't see a way to insert my pics in AGF threads.

I saw them this past summer on the multi-band tour with BNL.

I don't remember him playing that gtr. He did play his K-line electric.

I saw them on that Last Summer on Earth Tour also. He's a purist and loves those K-Lines. Seems he is lately playing the Blackbird instead of his early '40s Gibson L-00 though on stage. There is a YT Vid of him playing Bbird in a songwriting session on the Blues Cruise that was in December. Thanks for putting up the links Brian.
