  1. 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. .
  2. "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. .
  3. Excellentos That Bluebird's got soul - so has player behind it, , , and the singer. .
  4. 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. . .
  5. 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. . .
  6. Good question. I have doubts, but for no particular reasons, , , other than I really dig rosewood and ebony f-boards. Both in sound, look and thought.
  7. Greetings to my fans and followers with gratitude for all your support and loyalty across the years.This is an unreleased song we recorded a while back that you might find interesting.Stay safe, stay observant and may God be with you.Bob Dylan Murder Most Foul Twas a dark day in Dallas November '63 A day that will live on in infamy President Kennedy was a-ridinโ€™ high Good day to be livin' and a good day to die Being led to the slaughter like a sacrificial lamb He said "Wait a minute, boys you know who I am ?" "Of course we do We know who you are" Then they blew off his head while he was still in the car Shot down like a dog in broad daylight Was a matter of timing and the timing was right You got unpaid debts we've come to collect We're gonna kill you with hatred without any respect We'll mock you and shock you and we'll put it in your face We've already got someone here to take your place The day they blew out the brains of the king Thousands were watching no one saw a thing It happened so quickly so quick by surprise Right there in front of everyone's eyes Greatest magic trick ever under the sun Perfectly executed skillfully done Wolfman oh wolfman oh wolfman howl Rub-a-dub-dub it's a murder most foul Hush little children You'll understand The Beatles are comin' they're gonna hold your hand Slide down the banister go get your coat Ferry 'cross the Mersey and go for the throat There's three bums comin' all dressed in rags Pick up the pieces and lower the flags I'm going to Woodstock it's the Aquarian Age Then I'll go to Altamont and sit near the stage Put your head out the window let the good times roll There's a party going on behind the Grassy Knoll Stack up the bricks pour the cement Don't say Dallas don't love you Mr. President Put your foot in the tank and step on the gas Try to make it to the triple underpass Blackface singer whiteface clown Better not show your faces after the sun goes down Up in the red light district they've got cop on the beat Living in a nightmare on Elm Street When you're down in Deep Ellum put your money in your shoe Don't ask what your country can do for you Cash on the ballot money to burn Dealey Plaza, make left-hand turn I'm going down to the crossroads gonna flag a ride The place where faith hope and charity died Shoot him while he runs boy Shoot him while you can See if you can shoot the invisible man Goodbye Charlie Goodbye Uncle Sam Frankly Miss Scarlett I don't give a damn What is the truth, and where did it go ? Ask Oswald and Ruby they oughta know "Shut your mouth" said the wise old owl Business is business and it's a murder most foul Tommy can you hear me ? I'm the Acid Queen I'm riding in a long black limousine Riding in the backseat next to my wife Heading straight on in to the afterlife I'm leaning to the left got my head in her lap Hold on I've been led into some kind of a trap Where we ask no quarter, and no quarter do we give We're right down the street from the street where you live They mutilated his body and they took out his brain What more could they do ? They piled on the pain But his soul's not there where it was supposed to be at For the last fifty years they've been searchin' for that Freedom oh freedom freedom cover me I hate to tell you mister but only dead men are free Send me some lovin' tell me no lies Throw the gun in the gutter and walk on by Wake up little Susie let's go for a drive Cross the Trinity River let's keep hope alive Turn the radio on don't touch the dials Parkland hospital only six more miles You got me dizzy Miss Lizzy - You filled me with lead That magic bullet of yours has gone to my head I'm just a patsy like Patsy Cline Never shot anyone from in front or behind I've blood in my eye got blood in my ear I'm never gonna make it to the new frontier Zapruder's film I seen night before Seen it 33 times maybe more It's vile and deceitful It's cruel and it's mean Ugliest thing that you ever have seen They killed him once and they killed him twice Killed him like a human sacrifice The day that they killed him someone said to me "Son the age of the Antichrist has only begun" Air Force One coming in through the gate Johnson sworn in at 2:38 Let me know when you decide to thrown in the towel It is what it is and it's murder most foul What's new p****cat ? What'd I say ?

  8. "Sounds great," said the Molly T fan. . But it really does
  9. High altitude artisanry ^ always a pleasure
  10. Good to hear Regarding the scale-length it has been up here before. We all brought our measure-stick forward and confirmed that the oldies came in both versions - where the new ones are all short. My 3 early squares are short - not so with the 68er.
  11. They are and will be mesmerizing guitars - glad you found your acoustic s-mate.
  12. Appreciate your honesty EA - keep Prague groovin'
  13. Brraavou - giant steps forward since the beginning. Are you auto-tuned ? The butterJumbo sounds superb ^ Must check the previous song soonest.
  14. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ - you just were invited home for a cup of instant coffee with a brandy on the side. . . . . . . Seeing the macro in micro will allow us to see micro in macro
  15. Yes, it's a very intimate almost private scene. And that stative ain't seen every day. .
  16. Ouhh, , , 1 not 2 ? - I just automatically assumed he would choose the X- not latter-braced version. You may know better. .
  17. O yeah - seen that one And let's not forget that Neil is such a Stones-fan he once borrowed a tune of them. Can you or anyone else guess, , , eeehhh hear the mother track. .
  18. Perhaps not - but it doesn't sound to plasticky. Will listen again. Next time only to the bridge ๐Ÿค“
  19. Had the same thought - but it could be wooden a replica.
  20. Here's a ticket to Neil behind an LG-2 and a horseshoe (rhyme). Can't decide whether the bridge is fixed, not talkin' saddle, but the whole thing. Then again I'm small body person. Others might see exactly what's goin' on. https://neilyoungarchives.com/movie-night
  21. This guitar never was a 1962 J-45 the way I never was an olympic triatlonist. Can't believe the bridge was fixed either. Your good neighbour needs to prove that his memory isn't failing. Looks like a late 60s Southern Jumbo in fine form and since the guard seems to be screwless 68 may be out of Q. The case is a bit disturbing. Could it belong to another older Gibson guitar. A 1962 J-45. . . .
  22. Sure - but this is heavy s... And how much it weighs no one yet knows. Stay strong
  23. 1 - Yes 2 - Hope so (and yes, he had the H. Snider-detail in place) 3 - Mentioned the E F, but didn't place it in the right context - as the trailblazer it was 4 - A job offer from Martin might make Mister P. move to Nazareth. Then again he is pretty much his own man, which is 1 of the things I like about him. As a matter of fact wouldn't write this if I didn't expect more.
  24. You can never take a general J-45 voice for granted. They are related, but like colours - red/green/purple etc - they come in different hues. As said many times here, my good pal fell in lOVE with my 2010 Std. and went out hunting. Soon found and long-distance bought a Historic Collection from approx 03. It turned out to be a completely different animal - milder, lesser bass, more lady-like (if you allow the expression). Nevertheless he liked it so much that it outshone his Santa Cruz D-28S and became his main guitar. So go out and try, try and try again. You'll see what I mean - then find out who you are. Good Luck @Pepper - there's also the logo variation.
  25. I'm disappointed. Like him a lot, but I don't see Polecastro get into the Bird at all. Might be flying around it, presenting other similar models, artists playing the creature and stuff, but there is no special knowledge, no real insight or soul-mirror. I mean where's the telling of the adjustable bridges/saddles, how they influenced the original sound and were exchanged. We hear nothing about the proud predecessor ! Epiphone Frontier ! - not to mention the critical period of the double X, how the hog-square survived it, eventually returned with ordinary saddle, thus restored its reputation, , , and even in certain cases re-introduced the adj. concept. Details 'bout bursts and tuners are muted, , like the basic differences between TV and Standards, , , , , , the tulips/chromes, the guards, the rest. Now, , , T.P. may appear enthusiastic here, but it's his guitar enthusiasm we get, not a faible for H-birds. Don't forget he doesn't own one himself (unless it recently sneaked in through the backdoor, which I doubt), but rides a slope Southern Jumbo (if memory doesn't fail me). He might respect the Hummingbird, be fascinated by it and acknowledge it's legend. Yet - carries no real feel or glazed lOVE for the complex and vulnerable flier. Sense of nectar ? - what, , , wrong number. . What we also notice is that he apparently doesn't check these pages for Gibson information. It's between the lines here and there and obviously is a mistake if you want to know about acoustic Gibsons and the culture surrounding them. This Board has all the information in the world. Not that you need to be a librarian, but if interested, , , , , search and you will find. I'd say to T.P. : Don't make so many shows they become pop-hollow. It would be a waste of splendid resource and healthy spirit. Skating restlessly over the surface can be okay for certain models. When it comes to the heavy classics we must dig deeper to reveal the jewel. CU ^ cheers The guard looks as if it's the Standard version, doesn't it. I think the Epiphone has it thinner. What puzzles me is the guard-label-rosette-combo. It isn't following the common scheme. This is a Gibson Std. Check the black-ring rosette.
