One Question Interviews: The Blind Shake

Jim Blaha (The Blind Shake - guitar)

SPB: What type of guitar do you play with The Blind Shake and how did you pick that model? 

Blaha: For The Blind Shake I always was drawn towards the cheaper models like Univox, Tiesco and Danelectro (they were cheap when the band started at least). I never wanted the guitar to be too precious. I liked them because they were really light and I could move around with them more on stage. As things progressed I ended up playing a Telecaster. I love it. It stays in tune so well and it is so normal it's weird again.
