  1. Reckon you nailed it - Kay for sure after that video of Lonnie..... .....excellent - more pictures would be just peachy.
  2. Some kind of lap steel or similar..... that yellow criss-cross looks familiar, and those huge letters on the knobs..... Two-pup, old VOX or Selmer, Hofner. Beats me, but horribly familiar.
  3. A guitar wiring harness. Quite a good one.
  4. Are you the "G u e s t" from way back when?

  5. . . pippy - you show excellent and eclectic tastes. 4'33" by the Cale is not something I ever expected to see mentioned on here..... .....takes me back to my days at the Cockpit Theatre, Gateforth Street. Man - we put on some weird and crazy concerts back then.
  6. . That's probably a guitar that a dealer picked up at a Gibson event or a Trade Show, or it might have been given to a potiential dealer as a demo. Quite possibly it was a second given to an artist for touring, or a promotional item given to a radio station for a contest - often a way to use perfectly good but less than perfect stock. If the vendor doesn't know, email Gibson - they will for sure !
  7. Johnt said: 'I recall lending my son my J45 "to lay down some acoustic tracks" with his band and it came back with two dings and belt marks.' Maybe so - and it probably had finger-grease on the strings and vibration-stressing of the wood-fibre too not to mention undue fret-wear, it's a guitar, your son is a fine player. I'm guessing he didn't leave it in the case and only get it out on high days and holidays..... ^only joking BTW, I am looking forward to your 24th birthday! Any more cracks about Fenders and I will bring all four of mine up and el-cabong you with them. Wow - the power of those five little words: ^only joking BTW, heh heh heh heh
