Larry came to my home town in Southern Spain and a few guitar players were chosen to be his pupil for a 15 day course.

I couldn't "compete" with his jazz playing as I am not a jazz musician but hey he really enjoyed my blues playing. "You must be making records, young man" was his veredict.  I must admit I was pleasently flattered!!
Why waste your breath moaning at the crowds? Nothing can be done to stop the shouting; if every tongue was still, the stones and rocks themselves would start to sing.

Hey! You can download a very crude video I've just done. Sorry for the lack of preparation. It's een recorded with a SONY digital still camera. The sound is nothing like the real thing but hey.... you might get an idea.

My Fender reverb was in a studio so no reverb watsoever. Only some nasty echo from a rather bad sounding room.

please be kind....

What I meant is that I'm wearing a tracksuit. The thing is I'm recovering from a minor operation so comfy clothes are a must.

BTW, the tone you can hear is NOTHING like the real thing. the built-in microphone is not for judging tone really. LOL

Great lookin' guitar. That has got to be the best clean (well almost clean) tones I've ever heard coming from a Les Paul.

It could be a great rockabilly guitar as well with that tone. Very sweet. I feel GAS coming up.

Cheers!!
The amp is pure class A with no negative feedback loop so perfect clean is not really easy to get nevertheless a very nice and unique sound!!

Those raw nickel covers (thats what they are right?) look AWESOME. If I get an LP that colour scheme I will definately go for some of those. Sounds very good to me even with the cr@ppy in built mic.

That Bigsby looks cool as $%&# - I've thought of doing that to my own LP std before.  what is the tuning stability like? how do you think it impacted on your tone versus the stopbar?

I use the Bigsby a lot there're no tuning problems whatsoever. The tone didn't change much, it improved if anything really.
