Twin Peaks’ Cadien Lake James

To match the vintage-vibe jangle rock that Cadien and his bandmates play, he specifically sought out older instruments, like this ’60s Silvertone EP11T, even before he hit high school: “I've always been attracted to vintage gear, both in its appearance but also in the character you feel playing an instrument that's more than twice your age. I got my first one for $100 on eBay in 8th grade, and then had it souped up at Chicago Music Exchange in 2013. I recently acquired a second EP11T and had it modded to match the first for backup onstage.”

These characteristics become the stuff of legend, passed on through the years via rumors and anecdotes in shops, forums, and community networks.
