This happened almost a month ago, but we just noticed that Fender has posted a video from their NAMM Kickoff of the Jim Campilongo Trio. Click here to watch. Jim is a local hero in New York City, and we’ve checked out his regular gigs at the Living Room on Ludlow Street many times. Anyone in New York on a Monday night could really do a *lot* worse than to drop by and catch his no-cover performance. His incredible tone (aided by the vintage Tele plugged directly into the amp), combined with his behind-the-nut string bends and endless bag of country-fied licks leaves guitarists in the audience shaking their heads.
