Nicknamed the "Humbler," Danny was regarded by many as one of the finest guitarists ever. He was instrumental in the development of his signature Tele set, which is subsequently the basis for the entire line of JBE products.
As Danny himself put it they are " the best pickups on the planet"
John plays other basses in his gig with The Afghan Whigs, but is most at home with his Ric and needed to tame the noise. He chose a set of R4000 pickups and quickly found that he not only eliminated the noise of stock pickups, but he also found a broader tonal pallet ...all without sacrificing the classic Ric bass tone or cosmetic vibe.
If you're a fan of Counting Crows, and who isn't, chances are you know Dan Vickrey and have heard him with his JBE-equipped Baja Tele.
Dan joins us as a JBE Pickups artist using a set of Gatton T-Styles for his Baja. Dan says the tone and performance of JBE pickups bring his Baja alive...and who is not to love the fact that there is no noise.

Our friend Jimmy is one of the few blues guitarists who learned first hand from the masters of the blues, not off a blues record or DVD. Jimmy is often known as the co-founder of the Nighthawks to the time he ended with them in 1987. Since then, Jimmy has been on the road as a solo musician doing nearly 300 shows a year proving each night that he is still the guitar powerhouse in the blues.
