  1. Now there's a bit of confusion on the line. Wasn't the B-25 the same as the LG-2, only with a new name. As falcon-eyed BK777 noticed on March 22, the new Neil-guitar hasn't got the mid-seem-brace, which would make it an LG-1. Into a little sherlocking here 🔎 - not because of the times, , , but because of the place.
  2. Hehe, , , that's what I thought - not only 1 big star, , , 8 different sized smaller ones . . 😮
  3. Aha, , , but to me the force of these first videos was the triple-point in both the man-machine-connection, the look and the actual sound of this creature. Anywayzzz. .
  4. Sure, , it made him some sort of saint he may never have been without it. . . Not really understood - d'you mean the T-O-M didn't play a role in the first place. .
  5. Starry starry night, , , , paint your palette black and grey. I'm glad the soundhole is still round. ✰ ✰ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ✰ ✰ ✰
  6. Yes, , , and I was afraid he'd decided to switch the T-O-M . Luckily and wisely he did not. Let's hope the best. Well, it's hard to see where it can go wrong.
  7. Then I'll say OUCH for him - and then remind us that he actually had a discrete and unplayed J-45 under the clazzic BBC-session just after his big break. That's looong time ago so he could have forgotten and lost G-overvue. Never seen him with 1 single slope Gibson during all these years. He might need to lurk here.
  8. Hey Arlington - and welcome. Nick has a strong point above, but I have heard Clapton praise the D-45. Never seen him with one though, , , yet. What I like about this little groove is that they show how it should be done when 2 guitars meet for a kitchen jam. And the simplicity of the 12-bar makes it very easy to decode : Listen the man who carries the torch (the singer), , who for his part naturally listens back and serve space for the other. Here done on a silver-plate.
  9. , , , well, never mind too much - it's just a number. But talking 'bout numbers here's a nice little acoustic duet. Sometimes things like this end up in a mess, but the jam below actually shows how to do it. It's good. Sorry - no Gibsons
  10. Didn't the one Oasis-brother smash the other Oasis-brother's J-200 after the other Oasis-brother had smashed the first Oasis-brother's 335. . .
  11. Wait till you get it right - it'll change the perspective. I remember feeling slightly lame when trying to get the intro under control back in 74. It gradually fell into place during a month or two. . So just keep dodooing it. . .
  12. Never knew P. Townshend had a Southern Jumbo. .
  13. Agree with everything you say, , , and yes, noticed the outroline too ^
  14. Some of it yes - but a lot of the latest records I have to avoid. The track above however, I find very inspired, , , as if he got through to the main source. Even the greatest artist can sink in the swamp of skills and craftsmanship. Sometimes they sense it sometimes they don't. But when it happens - and no matter what awareness - it means moving below the level they travelled on when becoming who they are, , , or were. There has to be a third factor in the pic. The 1 with no name. Your insight in the early period is impressing. I had a friend who owned the Great White Wonder. Must say I recall the myth as bein' greater than the music. Ouuu, we were a group of guys who heard a lot of bootlegs and circulating tapes in the late 90s. There was a book called The Invisible Republic too, , , we felt like citizens there. . Stay bob'd
  15. One of woodiest I heard as well. . Dripping dry acoustic drops like tears of joy.
  16. My 1996 Dove is a stellar guitar and funnily enough is far the most sensitive acoustic here when it comes to winter humidity. Simply have to shim or change saddle to keep it goin'. But now were talking about maple squares, don't dismiss or forget the Firebird Custom. 4 versions of this monstrous and majestic flier coming up. Lots of green flamery there, , , I had to put the ones on my guard out. . .
  17. Necessary to notice the fixed saddle. Not a long video, but a rather serious recording.
  18. Of course, , , and you are not the first. Must say you stepped off quite early. 62 to 64. In all respect - would it be unfair to place you in the narrow-fan category. .
  19. "I'm one person when I wake up in the morning and another when I go to sleep. I don't know who I am and don't really care" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . B.D. in the late 90s But sure, , , we kind of recognize him, don't we. There he is, , , no, a ghost casting shadow, , ,there, there, , , narhh, a phantom behind a glass of scotch. Watch, he comes, he comes, , , he is here, , , listen. Yes, sometimes he is, yes. .
  20. Excellentos That Bluebird's got soul - so has player behind it, , , and the singer. .
  21. So right - and B.D. was among it's finest messengers. . Yes and Ruby is also mentioned earlier in the text, , , actually in connection with Oswald. But the whole tale is a historical prism with Dylan reflecting from his side while others would reflect it from theirs. Bet millswinging P.T. is proud to be in - the Fleetwood Mac-turtledoves too. Especially the latter who don't really belong in the frame and therefor enjoy a heavy cadeau. And then we have the Fabs with their song I Want To Hold Your Hand, which as we know was a topic when Bob first met the group. He thought they sang I get high I get high. . .
  22. Must underline I don't want to throw a politically biased card here. It's sat up like the message it is - and must be seen as, , , a piece of art. What strikes me is that Dylan seems to have been contacted by his muse, both in lyrics and performance. A wonder which doesn't happens as often as often as earlier and therefore is equally uplifting to hear, , , even though it resulted in a dark tune now aired in a dark phase. We may like or not, but Bob carved a rock with this statement . And showed his format as a living world class artist with an intact key to the lounge'n'league of his own best. As a (sometimes dropping) fan I found the track very impressing. On more levels than 1. . .
