Young by the fire, , , with a cherry G.....

Recommended Posts

Looks like maybe a plastic bridge to me. No sign of the bolts outside the bridgepins you would have with a wood bridge.

Had the same thought - but it could be wooden a replica. 

Could be, but there's no way to tell.

Perhaps not - but it doesn't sound to plasticky. Will listen again. Next time only to the bridge 🤓

Thanks for the link, Em7!

Fantastic!

Ibanez in black at the beginning and an Gibson LG1 for the rest...

 

Speaking of old timers, I watched Ole, Ole, Rolling Stones last night.....more fabulousness! The Rollingas come out of the woodwork in Argentina.

Here is a tune unplugged from Mick and Keef in the dressing room :

O yeah - seen that one 

And let's not forget that Neil is such a Stones-fan he once borrowed a tune of them. Can you or anyone else guess, , , eeehhh hear the mother track. .

Ouhh, , , 1 not 2 ? - I just automatically assumed  he would choose the X- not latter-braced version.  
You may know better. .

Very low light in the footage but I couldn’t see the internal brace through the middle that you see in LG2/3s.

And the strings on both Ibanez and Gibson sounded like the ones they were born with!

But the whole production was just cool for the non coolness. My opinion.

I know this is a Gibson site but I thought I would share this lifetime classic,  Im not a brand loyalist more a tone addict. And all brands have THAT tone for me, I just have to find them.

Im sure most people have seen this video but this one seem to stand the test of time along with the other posted videos, thanks Ive really enjoyed listen to original works by some of the fine players here, and its fun to see and hear some of the old classics, for me.  I think our own music has been influenced by a lot of those great old songs,  Again thanks for the music,  now I need to return to my search for that special tune. Cheers and I hope you all stay safe and keep on picking , All of this is IMHO.

I love that video, but would much rather hear that D-28 mic'd directly than through that really quacky pickup. Obviously not so easy with a big string section, but the guitar isn't that critical in those sections of the song in any case.

That looks like a huge flatpick that Page is using here.

Yes, it's a very intimate almost private scene.  And that stative ain't seen every day. .

Some great videos in this thread.  I'll add another classic from the 60's, pared down and played by the fire.

To me, it was strange when Neil was walking around, facing / not facing the camera... huge audio quality differences. I suppose I should salute quirky.

He updated his website and says the Gibson is a J45 he bought off craigslist.  I love the Fireside sessions...waiting for number 3

I  hate to tell Neil this, but if someone sold him that guitar as a J-45,  I think he's been had.

Then I'll say OUCH for him - and then remind us that he actually had a discrete and unplayed J-45 under the clazzic BBC-session just after his big break. 

That's looong time ago so he could have forgotten and lost G-overvue.  Never seen him with 1 single slope Gibson during all these years.  He might need to lurk here.

The Gibson he is playing there is probably a B-25, and someone(Neil?) conflated B-25 and J-45. There's plenty of folks who think every Gibson is a J-45, and every Martin is  D-28.

No, in the current video which raised the topic of what he is playing. I haven't seen the BBC show.

Now there's a bit of confusion on the line.  Wasn't the B-25 the same as the LG-2, only with a new name. 

As falcon-eyed BK777 noticed on March 22, the new Neil-guitar hasn't got the mid-seem-brace, which would make it an LG-1. 

Into a little sherlocking here 🔎 - not because of the times, , , but because of the place.
