The Collection of J. Geils In the early winter days of 1967, I found myself sharing an apartment in Worcester, Massachusetts, with my friend, and soon to be bass player, Danny Klein. I had transferred to Worcester Tech in the fall of 1966 and very shortly thereafter I had met Danny and Magic Dick (then known as “Pittsfield Slim”), who was in the early stages of becoming one of the world’s great harmonica players. I had been playing acoustic guitar for about three years (trumpet and other instruments for about twelve) and Dick, Danny, and I had formed a jug band which soon evolved into the J. Geils Blues Band. Having decided to pursue music as a career, I dropped out of Worcester Tech at the end of the ’66 fall term. Naturally, my parents had cut off my funds, so I got a job at the Polar Soda bottling plant in Worcester. It was a lovely place to work in the winter, as they kept the place at a toasty 40 degrees or so for the brewing/bottling procedure. With a number of day jobs, much hard work, and a lot of good luck, the J. Geils Blues Band eventually became the J. Geils Band. We recorded our first album in 1970 and “only” twelve years and twelve albums later, had successfully made the number one spot on both the singles (Centerfold) and album charts (Freeze Frame). A dream come true for any young guitar player. By this time (’67), we had heard and dug the first Paul Butterfield Blues Band album and collectively went in search of the source material that Butterfield covered on that record. That led us very quickly to the top Chicago blues players: Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin’ Wolf, Jr. Wells, Buddy Guy, and others. We literally bought out all of the Chess records from Union Music, our local record shop! Eighteen months earlier, an amazing thing had happened in the folk/blues world. At the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, Bob Dylan, backed up by some members of the Butterfield Blues Band, had “plugged in,” so to speak… he had gone electric! Over the next few years, this changed everything in the music industry, especially in the New England coffee house/folk music scene. While the die-hard folkies hated the electric Dylan, many people loved the new sound and the coffee houses started bringing in electric blues bands from Chicago. The two main places were the Club 47 in Cambridge and the Unicorn in Boston. By the fall and winter of 1966/67, Dick, Danny, and I had piled into my old Austin-Healy Sprite more than a few times and made the hour drive to Cambridge or Boston to see some of our blues heroes, and hopefully to learn from them too. One day in early ’67, a mutual friend of ours, whom I will call Harold, told us that B.B. King was playing that night at the Café Au Go Go in Greenwich Village, N.Y. Harold had a large car, never seemed to have any shortage of funds, and was always up for a musical adventure… so the four of us jumped in his car and drove to New York to hear B.B. that night. To say that I was blown away by B’s guitar playing would be putting it mildly—it changed my life! After seeing B.B. that night, I decided that I must get an electric guitar and an amplifier “just like his,” so in the spring of ’67, I arranged to sell my Sprite to a friend in New Jersey. I drove down there and he gave me something like $700. I took a bus to New York City, bought a used guitar and a new amp (with wheels!), pushed the amp with the guitar on top down 8th Ave. to the Port Authority terminal, and took a bus back to Worcester. And, I still had about $300 in my pocket. The guitar and amp B.B. was using that fateful night left a vivid impression on me: a cherry red Gibson ES-355TDC (Stereo) plugged into a blackface Fender Super Reverb amp. When I made my guitar buying trip that day, I quickly learned that I couldn’t possibly afford B’s rig and still have bus money! What I wound up with was a used Gibson ES-345TDC and an Ampeg Gemini II amp… not my “dream gear,” but not bad for $400. During the later sixties, I studied the sound of the great blues players as much as what they actually played; I asked as many of them as I could what they had used when they had made this or that recording; I studied what few pictures were available and in this way, I learned as much as I could about the equipment my heroes used. I eventually formed a theory which I believe to be true, and which I have put into practice on our Bluestime records: if you want to get that authentic sound like the guitar greats, a big step toward doing this is to use the equipment they use. (Sounds simple, but then, of course, you have to learn how to play a little bit, too.) Over the years, this led me to try to collect some of those particular guitars and amps. I usually snoop around guitar and pawn shops in the various cities in which we play. Often, with good luck, I will stumble upon something I have seen in a picture or something I have been told about by another player. I eventually gathered a collection of guitars and amps that represent most of what all major blues and jazz artists use or have used. I thought it would be fun to put it all together in a book with pictures of my equipment juxtaposed with pictures of various players holding the same gear. This book is the result of that effort. I hope you enjoy looking at and listening to them as much as I have enjoyed finding and playing them. —J. Geils, December, 1996 (excerpt from an unpublished book project)


An Evening with Deke Dickerson Friday, November 17 | 5:30–7PM 63 Park Plaza, Boston photo credit: Susie Delany

Deke Dickerson, musician, producer, historian and author of the books ‘Strat In The Attic’ and ‘Strat In The Attic 2’ will be appearing at the preview for the J. Geils Skinner Auction doing what he does best—getting excited about guitars. Dickerson will be on hand to discuss rare guitars, his books, answer questions, and do solo performances on some of the guitars featured in the Skinner Auction of rare instruments from J. Geils collection. Deke Dickerson has been carrying the torch since he was 13, playing in his first rockabilly band in his hometown of Columbia, Missouri. After moving to Los Angeles at the age of 22, Dickerson carved out a niche for himself in Tinseltown. In addition to playing in his primary band, Deke Dickerson and the Ecco-Fonics, as well as several side projects, Dickerson has provided rootsy music for a slew of television shows and movie projects (including scoring the music for the cult favorite, Johnny Knoxville–produced The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia). “This music isn’t a cartoon to me, or some weird retro thing to be laughed at,” states Dickerson. “This is the great music of the American 20th-century experience: rock and roll, rockabilly, western swing, rhythm and blues, surf music, garage, and punk. It’s every bit as vital and important as jazz or classical; it just hasn’t gotten its due yet. There has to be somebody out there waving the flag for this music. Wherever I go, anywhere on the planet, people love this music, yet it’s kept out of the mainstream media simply because it’s considered ‘old.’” Dickerson has also made a name for himself in other avenues. He has his own signature guitar, manufactured by the Hallmark Guitar Company of Maryland. He writes for several guitar magazines and has two books published by Voyageur Press, The Strat in the Attic and The Strat in the Attic 2. Two of Dickerson’s songs are used in the newest Disneyland ride, Cars Land, at Disney’s California Adventure theme park. Dickerson is well known as a historian of roots music and regularly contributes liner notes to reissue projects for such labels as Capitol, RCA, Bear Family, and Sundazed.

356 Gibson ES-335 TD Electric Guitar, c. 1962, serial no. 86288, signed by B.B. King, with later hardshell case. Provenance: The estate of J. Geils. “The chances of finding, never mind affording, a 335 like B.B.’s were slim to none so when I stumbled across a ‘62 at Gil Southworth’s shop with a factory Varitone and correct shade of sunburst finish I decided to make it into what I call my B.B. 335. It was in tough shape as someone had removed the finish from the back of the neck, it had badly worn frets, and the original tuning machines were shot. It also had a stop-bar tailpiece, short pickguard, and the later gold anodized Varitone number plate, but these things could be easily changed. I already had some old nickel Grover tuning machines and a correct style Bigsby in my spare parts drawer, but the guitar being a ‘62 had rectangular block neck inlays. I took it to my friend and guitar repair wizard Jimmy Mouradian in Cambridge and he said making up a long pickguard was a piece of cake but changing the block inlays to dots presented a bigger problem. Jimmy, however, loves solving these out of the ordinary dilemmas and said he would cut out the dots from the block inlays he was removing and that he had some rosewood from an old fingerboard that would match this one. Since we were doing a fret job anyway, this would be the perfect time to change the inlays. He also made up two little wood caps for the stop bar screw holes and scribed the numbers on the now black anodized Varitone number plate. As you can see he did a great job. The finishing cosmetic touch was the addition of a ‘60s metal cap volume knob. “The guitar now looked correct but sounded bad. Someone had done some weird coil tap wiring to the pickups and compared with my stock original 345 I knew the Varitone circuitry was not working correctly. As I knew that B.B. never used the Varitone anyway, we decided to remove the capacitor unit but leave the switch and wire it to throw the bridge pickup out of phase on the number 2 position. The pickups were replaced with nickel Gibson re-issue PAFs and Jimmy worked his magic on the covers to give them that nice worn sixties look. The guitar now sounded as good as it looked and I played it a few times on the ‘95 B.B. King summer blues tour on which we were the opening act. We attended a big 70th birthday bash for B.B. put on by Gibson in conjunction with a concert in Nashville and after showing the guitar to B.B. he nodded his approval and signed it for me.” —J.G. $4,000-6,000
