Is that a Gibbo wrap around tail piece there Rob? Combining my two favourite electrics. A Tele and a '54 LP Goldtop. 

Cheers, Scott.

Here is a couple of pics of the Fender Classic 70's Thinline reissue I am retrofitting in an attempt to create a substitute for the Larrivee Malibu that I so wanted to obtain before they stopped production of Larrivee electrics.  I have not done much to it, just replaced the tuning machines with Graph Tech Ratio F style locking ones and set it up with the strings I prefer.  So far it plays and sounds better than I had expected...

I have avoided responding to this thread (see my thread earlier this week about being a thread ender) , but finally had to get in on the current topic. In 1971 I bought a '68 Les Paul reissue of the famed '50s model. It was a gold-top with P-90s and the wrap-around tailpiece. It was beautiful, sounded great with the big Gibson amplifier I had recently bought, and completely too good for a 19 year old country boy that was trying to go to school and find out what I wanted to do with my life. I kept it for a year or so and traded or sold it for something I don't recall and moved on. I have always regretted not keeping that LP and have bought many, many guitars in hopes of recapturing that allure.

The only way to get that sound is with an old style wrap-a-round.The one's they sell now don't get that tone.

Can't remember the name of the thread about pix of us with
guitars in the past. Plus I don't have the right stuff to try and find it.
So here is a pic of me, the little lady and my old Korean made Goya. I wrote a song for her to the tune "Never comes the Day.

I found this picture when I was burning about 10 boxes of old records.

Oh to be young again.  Being able to croon a song certainly doesn't hurt when it comes to the ladies.  I see a lot of love in that picture.

Danny, you look just the same lo these many years later.  How has your playing evolved over the years?  What (and how) did you play at the time of that picture and what do you play now?

I haven't played long enough to have a stylistic evolution.  My continuum is from wrong to right.  We'll get to real style...um...later.

   I had a friend drop by yesterday who had not seen me in a long time and the first thing he said was "You look the same". Of course I had shaved off my beard (which is mostly white) and that does take some years away. But I sure don't look the same as the picture above. When I look in the mirror I'm surprised at times to see the old man looking back at me.

      Back then I was 90% a strummer, thru the years I've played with much better players than myself and have had some improvement, but never really dedicated the time to get a proper style down. Eventually I gave up on tabs and such and just play a fingerstyle that comes to me naturally. One thing that improved was the ability to write a song with the music as well. That's where I'd like to improve more.

"Gotta say your lookin older...she told me your quittin...Well all the time you spend trying to get back what's been took from ya, more's going out the door... After a while you just have to get a tourniquet on it..."
   ...I feel overmatched... I always figured when I got older God would sorta come into my life somehow...And He didn't.And I don't blame Him...If I was Him I'd have the same opinion of me that He does..."You don't know what He thinks...what you got ain't nuthin new, this country's hard on people. You can't stop what's coming...It ain't all waiting on you...that's vanity..."
Maybe I'll go riding..."how'd you sleep?" I don't know, had dreams...both of em had my father in em...I'm older by twenty years than he was...I was a horseback going through this pass in the mountains. It was cold, snowing, but he had fire in a horn, like people did in the old days...He went on ahead
and I knew he'd be there, ahead of me.
