  1. Well, I started with the P90 and also with Gibson less than a year ago with this one - the cheapest Gibson in the catalog - and I love the look, the feel, the sound, everything about it. How does one know if it's a great guitar? You can never stop playing it, that's how. 😁
  2. Incredibly good music, never heard these guys before! The sound, the rhythm, the jazz, the bass solo, everything... 😁
  3. Nice wood pattern on the first picture, and the guitar is beautiful. This cutaway is interesting. It is probably because the maple top is thicker at the neck, then at the sides farther away, and the binding is uniform height. So, pure geometry. I assume the mahogany below is of the same height all around the guitar. I wouldn't notice it on the second picture, if I had not been told.
  4. Looks very high end! πŸ‘ The fingerboard is ebony? (seems too black for rosewood)
  5. Haha, and I thought this was a fishing-oriented topic! 😁
  6. This is not Gibson oriented, just great guitar-playing. The performance of these two guys is absolutely incredible. Plus, there's a hint of "Stairway to Heaven" right somewhere in the middle. MAJESTIC! 😎
  7. Of course. My thinking was that it might get too muddy, so that's why they don't do it. I was wrong here, they do make them!
  8. Do I see "Alnico II" on both? I thought those go up to like 5K max!
  9. I thought only Mike Oldfield plays the mandolin.πŸ˜‚ Joking aside, it's just another sort of guitar, which is longing to be played on. Go for it!
  10. Yes, that's true, agree 100%. I'm just saying they're doing a might good job doing it. Probably the only way... And that's on top of the #covid19 situation.
  11. One thing is true, we can trust the KKR guys to do what's best for Gibson. They saved the name, the process and the factory (two?), what's left is pure gold. Trust is the word!
  12. My estimation is this: There's a huge shortage of quality guitars and all pertaining equipment in the market (Gibson, Fender and all other names!) due to the stupid #covid19 pandemic. It will take years for the supply to stabilize. So, they did the right thing and oriented their efforts towards the products which are in highest demand and pay the best. That is pure math and any responsible entrepreneur will think and act that way. This brings long-term stability to the company, not just short-term profit. Good for Gibson and everyone else, including customers. Cheaper items will come b
  13. This is a really great question. Besides, can anyone DEFINE the concept of music (or any art, for that matter)? If we try to define music as an art of expressing oneself (to self and others)... then all beings have this, including animals. Some have this gift very wildly evolved (i.e. Blackmore in the seventies), and others somewhat more subtle (like laughing dolphins in a seaworld park). But it's all music; a natural way to express oneself! (EDIT: just found out this topic is almost as old as Beethoven's 7th symphony 🀯)
  14. This guitar looks so spectacular, that I had to click on the link... YEP, there is no pickup system. If one wants it amplified, an external mic has to be used. Simple, no drilling and the best possible natural sound.😎 (Drilling that precious wood is a travesty that should be sanctioned, Gitmo comes to mind. Of course it is just my subjective viewpoint and I am not going to war over this.)
  15. The magic is probably what drives some of the great artists to live here a part of the year. This must be an incredibly peaceful (quiet) place, and those autumn colors must be "killing it". Plus the sound of the waves, with no predictability... There is probably a full moon now and then, lifting the ocean. Pure inspiration. Plus, one can brag about the neighbors! 😁
  16. O wow! Huge and beautiful, I like that. Plus, the nearest neighbors are probably far-enough away, that one can play guitar all day, at any volume. It's definitely a BUY!
  17. It's a rhetorical kinda question. Besides, the $12M seems kinda bloated.
  18. $12M And what's the yearly tax on such a property in NY? πŸ˜…
  19. GEEEZAS, what a beautiful piece of poetry!! πŸ˜ƒ #345
  20. I would like to see an ES-335 from Gibson, just like the one I ordered last year in May. πŸ˜…
  21. Great review, the clean sustain is the magical part, I agree. And if it's even half as beautiful as the one on the pic, you've got a great guitar here! 😎
