Yes, its been done. Its a matter of taste. For that Chicago sound you cant beat the Green Bullet aka 520 DX, this site wouldnt steer you wrong. The Blues Blaster has a thinner sound IMHO, the JT-30 is basically the same mic as the Blues Blaster. The down side of the GB is its heavy and big, I use an old JT-30 rivet label body from back in the 40s with a GB element in it with no volume control and the shell grounded. With this set up you get the best of both worlds. A small light mic that sounds FAT. The less you put in the signal path, the better it sounds., so no volume pot, no effects, just straight into the amp. Best of Luck to ya..
