  1. Thanks to everyone who enjoyed listening to the clip and doubly-thanks for the kind words. Y'all know I Love Youse Guys. I could write a volume about how so very much I love Paul Kossoff's playing so I won't. Philip.
  2. Nicely understated; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7owzdGKelY Philip.
  3. My most sincere congrats, Scales! Great news all round! P.
  4. Are you the same Farnsbarns as had that weekly programme on the wireless a few years back? Oooohhh!!!!! You were right BRILLIANT n'that! P.
  5. Hi folks. Hope everyone is well? Not been posting around this place much but have been delighted to see how things are going on - especially (of course) as regards my old friends. Just a short post to wish everybody the very best for the festivities and hoping for a much healthier 2021. I know that Beano...etc..etc...etc.. are Slowhand's "best" work but as far as coming from the pure fun and enjoyment angles are concerned I have decided my #1 EC is the poorly recieved 'Backless'. What Say You? A very sincere Happy New Year to everyone when it comes! My Very Best Wishes to All, Philip P.S. : Ron! Let me know if the Cristal is any good?
  6. Hi and welcome to the forum and congrats on acquiring a very beautiful 'bird. Up to you, of course, but changing the tuners would be a massive mistake - and that's an understatement. Happy Learning! P.
  7. Thanks for that, jdgm. A bit more 'Old Skool' than the ubiquitous use of numerous digital delays (not that I'm casting any aspersions in that direction whatsoever; highly impressive stuff!). Numerous uses spring to mind for this instrument used as a blues tool with some basic drone bass notes, strummed triplets left to resonate and with single-note fingerwork over the top of all. I wonder what music John Martyn could have performed in a live setting using this instrument?........ Very enjoyable and thought-provoking. Philip.
  8. At least it was 'just' a 1959 reissue. This is (was?) a real '59; P.
  9. Very Nice Haul, rct! Philip.
  10. Your wish is my command, Scales, and I hope everyone is well in these strange times! Almost universally the 1959 re-issues have just the 9 XXXX serial number (occasionally 9 XXXXX if more than 9,999 1959 reissues were made in any one year). The 'R' designation usage was originally merely an informal way of identifying these models by 'The Public'. AFAIK Gibson do not call, nor ever have called, a re-issue by the R prefix although there is almost(?) always an 'R9' (or 'R8' etc.) ink-stamp in the main control cavity. There are notable exceptions (such as the chambered reissues) but we needn't concern ourselves with matters which will only confuse the main issue. Pippy.
  11. I'll have One Bourbon, One scotch, One beer please. P.
