Thanks for all the responses. They're all real nice pictures but some are too close to what I have and plan on using.
Still looking for a few more.

I had a little down time today and started working on the calendar.
I have a portfolio type holder so I can put pictures I want in it and then buy a inexpensive 12" x 12" calendar for the days

Posted Image



I gave up on finding pictures I like that will fit a 12" x 12" format so I started using some Gibson factory pictures for a background.
I'll download some Montana pictures for the newer guitars. I'll also get a Nashville picture for the L5.
Here's a couple quick looks

It's a small point, but the Gibsons in Tom's handsome group family portrait are not all "war time" Gibsons. The one on the far right is a J-45 from around 1950, and the sunburst LG in the back row is a script logo non-banner guitar, so probably 1946 or 1947.


Picky, picky, picky. It's my nature. I live by details.

Yeah, I know- most folk who aren't up on the clarifications that Nick provided won't know or care. . . pretty sure the intent of your composition will still hit it's mark. At times, people who are really into the subject will look at the image, and at other times they let the image take their imagination elsewhere. Ask him again and he'll probably talk about the other.

The one below it, John Thomas' LG at 225 Parsons, with the Gals below, their faces slightly out of focus, kind of abstract. . . how many of them are gone now.

And of course, Mr Paul's Nick Lucas at the wood pile. Wonderful. You have to wonder of the man rasping, block planing, filing. . . is that a mallet, lower left? Could this have been the person who fit on the neck of the Nick?

One Gal remains. She'll soon turn 97. I've arranged for a video shoot with her in the old factory this spring.

Never criticize a musician until you have walked a mile in his shoes. Then you will be a mile away and you will have his shoes.

Here is an interesting historical grouping. Sort of the alpha to omega of the power Js. 35 RSRG, 36 RSSD, 35 Jumbo, 36 AJ, 36 J-35 (Trojan), and 43 SJ RW.
Because of the comparative drop off in power of wartime banner years, these were the only models that ever got the attention of the rural bubble the way the early Martin dreads did.Posted Image

Tom - I'm guessing the one in front is the '43SJ RW... what does the 'RW' indicate? Rgds - billroy
'18 Gibson J45, vintage
'86 Guild D25
'00 Fender Strat (American Standard)
'90 Fender Strat (Korea, bought in an open market in Korea... yeah it might be real)
'68 Gibson SG
'17 Several 3 String CBGs
