The “T-Top” pickup has a “T” embossed on the pickup bobbin, allegedly to
indicate polarity. I have heard stories ranging from “early ’70s only” to
“it’s actually a Dirty Fingers pickup”. I tend to believe the former, since
the DFs sounded crappy and mine sounds nice. Also, I believe the one I have
came out of a ’70s LP Custom. They make a big deal about these things in the
vintage market, and attach a pretty hefty price, also. That’s why I was
wondering about IDing by the # on the base. How many different varieties of
HB was Gibson making circa 1981-82?

 

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

Harp Tab

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
