Mr. Paul

By way of introduction, a song and photos

Recommended Posts

I understand that to get ones ticket punched here, a video is suggested. Well, alrighty then B)

 

When I retired, I sold some nice guitars, one of which was a J45 standard, 2006 or so. After 5 years of having one nice guitar I got bit by the bug last February and spent 2016 restocking. In August I road tripped to Alburquerque, 350 miles one way, to check out a '46 J45 and it came back home with me.

Here is one I recorded this afternoon. I'm mostly a fingerpicker, using Alaska picks and various thumbpicks. The song is 80 Acres, written by Tim Grimm.

Welcome, Mr. Paul...isn't that one gorgeous-looking and sounding guitar. I won't say anything more and will let those who know a ton more than I do about guitars exclaim about it.

 

Very nice singing too. I like your and clear and honest vocal delivery. Very well-suited for this story-telling song.

Nice song, well performed, and a wonderful guitar. Looks to be in beautiful condition too! 1946 is my absolute favorite year for the J-45.

 

It was worth the drive for that one!

Nice. And what a nice recording to wind down a day with.

 

Beautiful guitar. The ’46’s have as much of a mystique about them as do the Banners; former Gibson workers were returning from the war, building guitars again, and things were looking up.

 

A fine song, and a good sounding J-45.

 

Welcome in.

Good on yah Paul! [thumbup]

Great intro to the walls of Gibson. :-({|=

You've done good, It's never too late to reach for that one thing you missed/liked in life when it comes to Gibson.

Congrats!

Welcome to the forum, Mr. Paul. I really enjoyed your song. You and the guitar sound like you belong together...lol.... I like your soft and easy fingerpicking and your performance was solid too. Hope we get to hear more your songs. Glad you've joined us here. [thumbup]
