Joe Bonamassa With Kossoff's Les Paul

Not wanting to hijack Rabs Bad Company thread, I thought I'd start a new one for this. It's a film that I found showing Joe Bonamassa being introduced to Paul Kossoff's 59 Les Paul:

And here are the two of them in action:

Interesting.

 

Clicking on a couple of the related clips I found this one to be interesting as well;

 

FWIW I had a play on one of the Koss R-I's a couple of years ago and it sounded absolutely amazing.

A genuine 'Wow!' moment. Don't know why that should be the case but it was.

 

I couldn't in all honesty say I liked the neck-graft but as it's a replica I suppose there was no choice in the matter.

Yes Pippy, I played one of the Koss VOS models when they were for sale (I think we may have discussed this before!) and it was fantastic. I very nearly bought it (I wish I had) I was thinking about it for quite a while but I wasn't sure that I could justify spending £5500 on a guitar just as I was planning early retirement. One hell of a guitar though!

 

Interestingly Arthur, the current owner of Koss's guitar says in another video on YouTube that he believes the guitar to be a 58 (it has no serial number due to part of the headstock being replaced) but Gibson's re issue's were advertised as 59's, so I guess they should know.
