That's either a Beatle playing a Mosrite or a very young Buck Owens.

Which is it?

Either way, I like your avatar.

...with his Silvertone Buck Owens Silvertone 3219 (made by Harmony USA)..I really love the sound Ryan gets out of these cheap Ladder braced guitars...

I've got a H164, which was a similar spec,...but in plain black, less Bling! I'm in the process for fixing her up (Neck re-set, new bone nut and saddle, new tuners, fret dress, etc)

That's Awesome Spot!.

While Buck's was a Mosrite, copies sold for serious money, Harmony mad a Red/White/Blue version for the masses. Wish I had one.

I really dig post 3. The picture and the avatar placed like that has a touch of beauty, if you ask me.
Do you ever do that – evaluate a post from an aesthetic view point. . . .



Btw. Spent some time wondering if the cartoon was a Liverpudlian now and again, , , and never knew these guitars were ladder braced.

Thanks dude. I love the photo of Ryan taking off his Buck Owens from last years solo acoustic tour....

Yupppp,...... the Buck's were Ladder braced like most of the Harmony USA made guitars of this era....I'm somewhat amazed at how Ryan gets such a sweet tone out of these Birch back and sided models...

Sweet, enjoy it mate! I'm pumped for the London gigs....

As pFox has got the hump with us on this thread I'll throw in a few photos of Ryan playing a few Gibsons. This way we won't get Nicked by the Forum Pigs....
