You can read about it here. But I was never aware that there was a significant variation in the headstocks as well. You can read that post here. The headstock of a is wider and longer than a headstock. The discrepancy in headstocks is in these conversions-all of which have a stinger. One has a bigger headstock than the other.

Well known users “With a balanced low-impedance output, you could use long cables without all the problems inherent in unbalanced high-impedance lines. Gibson was keen on having the low-impedance transformer close to the amp, so we made a special cable with a transformer on the other end, which you had to have in order to use it. But if you forgot your cable, you were out of luck—so we added the switch to go from low to high impedance.

He bought it new in I really feel like a guitar should be played and should have a life and not just look good. These guitars had a few interesting characteristics like no channel rout and a blend knob instead of a tone knob. The blend disappeared around Plus, you get flathead screws all the way around, including the truss rod! This example is one of the lightest Broadcaster guitars I have ever played. I am lucky to own it, and is one of my cherished Fender guitars in my collection.

It still has the original receipt and pictures of the original owner. It has been in many books, and is widely considered one of the very first if not the first black Stratocaster guitars ever made. He was responsible for some of the greatest country-tinged folk-rock of the s and s. Terry bought this guitar in when he was supporting Cream on their final tour in Chicago.

This picture shows Joe with the late, Great Rory Gallagher’s guitar. I knew it was Rory’s the minute I saw it as the last time I did was back in the early ’70s in Rory’s hands. Such memories brought back to life as only Joe Bonamassa can. I will post up pictures when I get back home this coming weekend. Can you go into a little more detail about Rory and his guitar?

Go to menu top I never heard anything better than a Fender if we’re talking about the big manufacturers. Later on, in the Guitar section, I’ll also talk about Standel and EchoSonic , but they’re produced in such small numbers that it’s fair to say they’ll only have historic interest to the most of us So As long as you get a tube Fender you’ll probably be on the right track, because they all sound pretty good.

It doesn’t have to be vintage at all, but they do look pretty cool. Actually I started out playing a vintage Vox AC 30 and it wasn’t bad at all. The sound was very ‘tube’ and that’s what you’re looking for, but Fender is still the better choice for Rockabilly. Fender Bassman ’59 reissue Many Rockabilly guitarists play a ’59 Fender Bassman or similar – vintage or reissue. It sounds perfect for rockabilly.

The Gibson Les Paul Studio is an electric guitar made by the Gibson Guitar Corporation; it is a less expensive, stripped down version of the popular model. Its users include Jade Puget of AFI and Paul H. Landers of Rammstein.

Posted by Joanne Brokaw With the news last week that guitar legend Les Paul passed away at age 94, I asked a couple of Christian musicians to share some thoughts on the man who changed the music industry: Everyone can be inspired by what he did. His early work on amplified instruments led to one of the first and most successful electric solid-body guitars, the Gibson Les Paul, still a top seller after nearly sixty years. His invention of multi-track technology literally changed music recording forever.

We will miss him! I being a producer as well as a musician see his invention of overdubbing in a studio environment as being pure genious. Also, his innovations with delays sound on sound paved the way for us to have experimental guitarists such as the Edge and Jimi Hendrix. Where would we be without them? Les Paul will be missed. His humble attitude and pure love of his instrument is inspiring.

He contributed more to music than I can fully grasp. Everyone making their living in the music business owes Les Paul a massive debt, and he will be dearly missed.

But, with more than 75 years of shipping records in the Gibson books, and dozens of variations on numerical schemes used over the years, serial numbers sometimes do little to shed light on the origin of a mysterious Gibson. With vintage Gibsons selling at auction for as much as half a million dollars, Davidson will sometimes roll up his sleeves and poke around in the ledgers, but only as time allows.

The earliest volumes contain hundreds of yellowed pages covered front and back with rows of handwritten numbers. It can take Davidson several hours to locate a specific serial number, if he can find it at all. Even then, there may be four other guitars—of all different models—with the same number sequence. Serial numbers can pull up multiple guitars from multiple years. To combat the problem, the company upped its serial number sequence last year from eight digits to nine.

For the most part, it looks real.

Jan 04,  · Re: Les Paul Studio White Sorry about a slow reply, but new activation through the holidays took a long time. I bought an excellent ’86 Studio in blue off of ebay with a brand new Gibson case; the cost was around $, which I thought was an excellent price compared to the newer Studios being auctioned ($ higher in worse condition.).

I chose practice-led research as my research method because I was not familiar with the industrial production and constructions of clipped designs. By creative practicing I gained a deeper under-standing and new insights into the technique of floating and clipping. The creation of an idea port-folio by using various sketching methods and the development of the designs for production, represent an instrument in this research. In this study, creative activity meets theoretical background.

The idea portfolio supports the dialogue between the designer and the technician in a design case in collaboration with the Italian weaving mill Lodetex. A little bit of luck contributed to the final outcome of this study as well. At an early point of my study, I wanted to discuss the material and col-our design of woven textiles. I considered various ways on how to approach the subject from a fresh and meaningful point of view. In the beginning of the spring of , I spent three months on an internship at the Italian weaving mill Lodetex.

Lodetex is specialized in the production of jacquard fabrics for furnishing markets. I decided that doing my thesis in collaboration with Lodetex would be a viable continuum after working in the company as an intern. I discussed the matter with owner Luca Farhanghi and he agreed that a thesis collaboration would be interesting and beneficial for the both of us. He informed me about a few production lines that the company planned on developing.
