    It's the Blind Owl (Alan Wilson) who looks like a school kid.

    That looks like a Les Paul Junior Special. In Alex's master hands it sounds great of course. I had one just like this that I didn't like. I really wanted to like it, but the finish was weird. It felt totally plastic and the guitar would 'sweat' in 80 degree California weather.

    I was considering one of those that’s in a local GC. Sherman Oaks, in the Valley in LA, still there the last I looked. There was a sale going on and I think I could have had it for 3800, it’s marked price was I think 4300. I suspect if I offered them that today they might go for it. I played it a good while, it is indeed very nice, neck isn’t quite what I’d call fat, but close enough for me. But not cheap of course. Ultimately I just didn’t want to deal with it being stereo—that has some appeal, but overall I just decided against it. Right about then I found a 2015 RI in the Emporium for considerably less, and not stereo, so I went for that one. Similar neck profile to the FK.

    The color of the Freddie King model was really calling me, I usually don’t give too much weight to color as a factor in deciding. The one I wound up with is sunburst, like Matt Murphy’s and Little Milton’s. Looks great but it matches my 335.

    Broke this record out today after a friend reminded me about it. Great from start to finish. Makes me miss Lynwood.

    GoFundMe to raise money for a show? Is this a thing now? It's heartbreaking that you have to take such measures. On the other hand I don't know how it would be in Europe if it wasn't for state money and corporate sponsors. 2 of the 4 JW shows I have seen had probably around 100 people attending maximum, the other 2 around 50 max. - either way, the admission for all shows was between 15 and 20 Euro (very good price!), you can do the math, you can't pay 4 guys, a tour manager and a sound guy for that money.

    I hope the GoFundMe works out well, JW shows should be available for everyone, you can't get enough of that guy.

    The ES 5 in 1994 moments after restoration in our shop. We worked around the clock to get Anson's instruments and amps ready for a long tour. The band finished up in Kansas City, where the "Live At The Grand Emporium" album was recorded. This particular instrument has spectacular tone and projection.

    Must be the same one that sits on the stage throughout this set, I ordered the VHS from the producers way back when. Around the same time as the Grand Emporium CD, and it was shot in KC as I recall, maybe even the Grand Emporium, but not the same set.

    The only disappointment in the video was that he never played it!

    That's not even crazy money... I mean, it's more than I have in the gear fund. But, I would not be turned away for that price! And that one is beautiful... and has cool history to boot!
