  1. Thanks. It's a nice display stand. I almost like it more than the guitar. Alright, that's not true!
  2. Thanks. Yeah the perspective looks funny from this angle. Once I bought it I thought uh oh, this wont fit in the current stands I have and sweetwater just restocked on the gibson branded stands so I figured why not! Yep, that's a firebird and explorer over there. The explorer while much newer than the v make a nice pair. Both natural finish.
  3. I've been looking for a flying v for some time now and this 2000 limited edition v fit the bill. Plays amazing and looks even cooler. For a 21 year old guitar this thing is clean! Not even a smudge on the gold hardware. That is until I got it. It's been played more in the last few days than it likely did in the previous 20 years.
  4. That is an amazing guitar. If it sounds as good as it looks it must be an inspirational instrument. I bought a 335 a few years ago and I understand why they were called burst killers back in the day. Awesome guitars. Hope you get many years of enjoyment out of that one.
  5. I love Ted and Byrdlands. Well beyond my means to afford one but if I hit the lottery one day I'll be in the market for one or three of em'. When in doubt I whip it out, got me a rock n roll band! It's a free for all!
  6. Nice find! Thats a real beauty. I scored the Memphis 335 in the same 70's walnut finish a few years ago and absolutely love it (I think i posted a pic on here). Didn't realize they also did a 339. Enjoy playing it.
  7. Yep. Got one. Didn't subscribe yet but i did go to YouTube to watch a few of the videos. Mark Agnesi does a collection review with Dave Amato and it is awesome. Has the feel of the norm''s videos he used to do. They even reviewed some old fenders which was cool of Gibson to include. Mark says in the video "I know I work for Gibson now but I gotta see some fenders". Check the video out, it's worth it.

    That's a real beauty. 335's are special guitars. I love mine but that one you have there is somethin' fine! Enjoy!
  9. A true gift to music. An influence to many who will never realize it. He played on so many records and in so many musical styles his touch on music was beyond vast. I became aware of JJ through his mention in a Drive By Truckers song (David Hood, a swamper, being Patterson Hood's father). Then as I became more interested in my musical influences history realized his connection with my favorite band Lynyrd Skynyrd. There is a documentary on Netflix called "Muscle Shoals" and JJ is featured quite a bit. The things he was part of is simply amazing. Thanks for all the great music Jimmy! RIP.
  10. I like the look of those phone cases. Might snag one for myself. I personally like it when Gibson expands out into areas like this. They certainly gain more visibility and exposure with items like phone covers, shirts, hats, etc.
  11. The new images have had me thinking! My truck is certainly not ready for pasture just yet but in a few years I might be keeping an eye on the used market. Very impressive looking car chevy put out for 2020.
  12. I ordered a c-22 a few weeks ago while killing time on amazon. Thought what hell, why not. It was a little wider than I preferred at first but after playing with it I have found it to be very comfortable. Nice thick leather, and overall feels like a quality product.
  13. That's a new one on me. I've always heard "tune up to pitch" as well.
  14. I agree with you on this. Gimme three steps, call me the breeze, etc. are more crowd pleasures. You ever cover the Needle and the Spoon?
  15. This is the ironic part. They are both 50. I'm 34 so you would think it would be the other way around. They are more into 90's rock which should tell you something!!
