New Gibson

September 3, 2009

New LP Studio arrived today. Plays and sounds great! Just waiting for the Bigsby to arrive so I can fit that. The epitome of cool or complete sacrilege?

    Watched a documentary about Les Paul a few nights ago, and it looked like his own personal guitar at the end was a heavily customised LP with… a Bigsby!

    The guitar looks great can’t wait to hear the Bigbsy at the end of Walking by Myself. Is this the right place to comment on your pedal obsession? Or do you want to keep that private:)

    Nice photo !!

    I’m just sitting writing lyrics :

    You’ve been sitting around for years thinking how to get over
    You’ve been hiding what you do and who you are ;
    In the dark creeping around watching ;
    Saying you can do better
    but you don’t . no you don’t
    Leave me alone to try things out
    In the cold you’re still hiding don’t wanna be found out .
    I’m going to put you in front of everyone
    Tell them , show them what you’ve been doing .
    No room for hiding ; you’re out.
    It’s wide open now and you can’t close it.
    Can’t run now.
    What are you gonna do?
    The lights are on you.
    Do what you do and …

      Had a bit more of a play on the LP last night – very sweet guitar. Great neck and sounds very warm so definitely pleased with that purchase. No sign of the Bigsby yet – needs to arrive on Monday if I’m gonna be able to use it on Tues night!

      The new Ibanez Talman electro/acoustic is pretty good too. Thought it wasn’t working at first but all fine. Narrow electric-style neck means it’s very easy to play and should be good for bashing out chords and tunes when writing/jamming. Sounds good through an amp too so might be an option live if we have any mellow numbers to do.

    Boo – Bigsby is looking very delayed. Seller on eBay has gone on holiday (after I paid for it!) without posting so it’s looking like I won’t get it for another couple of weeks. 😦

    It’s traditional that you have something that doesn’t turn up for a practice session let me try and remember some of them:

    T-Rex Phaser Pedal
    T-Rex A,N Other pedal (can’t remember which one)
    New Amp Tubes

    Can anyone else think of any others or correct my failing memory?

    I have the ivory/chrome (not the alpine white). Mine is a solid un chambered… is this model chambered??

    Yours is a nice finish and wasn’t available when I ordered mine in 2007 – mine had to be made to order and shipped to UK cos I just selected it from a catelogue unseen!

    Excellent guitars – so full of tone.
