Rayna's (whtlitewhtheat) son found this and she posted it on the CCC board. It's the acoustic version of the ad.

I don't think anyone ever heard the third version of this:
Thanks for posting this! A very interesting article...
THIS is going to be interesting... 3 versions eh?
White then went on to record three different versions of the track - rock, horns and acoustic - which will all air.
Meg and I also forgot to give you advice about books about our band. Here it is ... don't buy them. They are all horrendous, but Especially stay away from "fell in love with a band" by chris handyside. What a load of excrement he got published! Absolute Shit in our opinion, despite a luke warm review from the new york times. Chris is Another one of our "friends", more so a detroit opportunist, who saw to it to ask all The wrong people, the wrong questions, and have it printed. Of course you realize you can write a book, put someone's picture on the cover, and their names, and not have to get permission or give them a dime for it ... or have any ethics about it at all really. Well chris knew that! Having read it after tea on Sundays (which meg and I do with all the books about Ourselves) we really got tired of hearing lies about some things that never happened. Another shit horrible book about the band is everett trues book. Both of these Are more about cashing a check from publishers who could really care less, than informing a fan about the band. Note to anyone else interested in writing books about us: Why don't you wait thirty years first ... and then write about a band that you actually like.
When I was young, our drinking water occasionally went brown or purple in colour due to manganese deposits in the pipes. That only lasted for a day at a time and didn't cause any health issues. The idea of deliberately letting a whole city drink poisoned water for years is just unthinkable. Does no-one have responsibility to monitor or regulate water quality in Michigan?
It's a reflection in a glass ball between a thumb and index finger, of a house turned upside down. The image is green, mostly. I know what movie it's from, but I'm curious if anyone else here knows.
The Double Life Of Véronique - Kieslowski again
I will confirm that the Gretsch "Triple Jet" shown on the Stellartone site is Jack's personal guitar. Randy Parsons of Parson's Guitars built only three of this special model, which are all custom-made, and not in the Gretsch catalog. No more Gretsch Triple Jets will be made.
Both of the preceding photos in this thread show the semi-completed guitar with the non-gloss copper metallic finish. The final finishing phase created the ultra-glossy zero-texture copper finish, first seen on Conan O'Brian on May 18th. I am uncertain if the other two Triple Jets have received the high-gloss treatment as yet.
This is a truly beautiful instrument. I believe additional photos can be viewed on the Parson's Guitars website. Please click below for photos of the completed guitar.
About the electronics: Stellartone provided the ToneStyler 16-position tone selector, which is wired as the master tone control, installed in the first (upper) control knob position. The center knob is the gain control for the custom active circuit dedicated to the middle pickup; and the third (lowest) knob is the master volume. All three pickups are Gretsch Filtertrons; the set of three toggles select the three pickups; and the single toggle is a master mute switch. For you Gretsch fans out there: the ToneStyler provides 14 discrete capacitor selections; setting #2 & #4 are the same as the Gretsch three-way tone selector switch. http://www.gretschgu.../schematic2.pdf . The next ten settings (#5 through #14) in the ToneStyler's capacitance series are progressively brighter & clearer; #15 is true bypass, and #16 is "stock tone pot on 10". Check out the website for more information: www.stellartone.com
I've got a better idea of the equipment now:
Dean - keyboards, tambourine, vocals plus yellow Airline (from "Steady..." video)
Brendan - two pickup Guild with harp-shaped metal piece where the lead plugs in (rather fancy looking); Gibson semi-acoustic with white parts inlaid between the frets (i.e. acoustic which plugs in - this is what I mean by semi-acoustic)
Jack - three pickup yellow Gretsch with silver knobs and arm; yellow three pickup Airline similar to Dean's one but Airline written diagonally and there's a bit more black on the body of Jack's one (not used at all in Glasgow); Gibson semi-acoustic (different to Brendan's)
Lil' Jack - bass (looked like Gibson on the head but too far away to be sure - looks just like the bass he uses with The Greenhornes)
The spare guitar looked pure white but it was never used so I don't know
Tidal seems wrong-headed to me as well. I much prefer the Audiotree model of putting almost everything on YouTube for free but letting you buy a copy if you really like something. Monthly subscriptions like Tidal might be great for business but I'm always going to pick and choose what I want to pay for. Personally I'm not going to download this show but I'm not a fan of Jack White's solo work so that's not a difficult choice for me to make. Everyone else can make their own choices and can, within reason, praise/criticise the choices other people make.
Our longstanding policy of "no links to officially released stuff" was originally meant to prevent the various bands and their management from having any issues with the board. These days it's there to prevent us from getting cease and desist letters etc. I still don't think we should be hosting links to officially released stuff but it's ultimately Brian's decision
