Man - love your set!! Some great stuff.Except: As I was leaving, an older fellow leaned over to me and said, "That little yellow guitar... it sounded pretty good."
To the original question: Yes. Not always, but often. At various times:
'57 LP Special
'67 Country Gent
'60 LP Junior
'52 LP ('56 conversion)
'69 LP Deluxe
Probably more; that's all I can recall off the top of my head. People roundly ignored the guitars, which was a marked contrast to the group of aficionados who hang here.
I remember taking the LP Special to a blues jam one time. Major paranoia at the time. Played great, sounded great, and nobody paid any attention at all. Except: As I was leaving, an older fellow leaned over to me and said, "That little yellow guitar... it sounded pretty good."
That would be fun! We expect a video, with you playing all of Barney's licks perfectly!I am going to be playing Barney’s in the near future
As I mentioned in the other thread, Bruce offered to let me play Barney several times during our lunch, but given the timing, he had my Isanas to focus on.That would be fun! We expect a video, with you playing all of Barney's licks perfectly!
That reminds me that I was once at a guitar show and I played a famous jazz session player's acoustic guitar (I think it was Barney's). It was a beat but sweet early '30's L5. To this day, it is one of the finest sounding guitars I've ever played. The neck felt modern, and the thing rang like a bell. I thought I could hear all of those motion picture swing dates in there!
No, it's a Houston, TX guitar.@hogy did that smoked ‘54 Strat come out of Iowa, by chance? I saw one there about 25 years ago, a very early one with the serial number on the plastic trem cover. I passed on the guitar, but bought the ‘67 Super Reverb. I’d never seen another maroon maple smoker’s neck until now.
