Hats With Musical Instruments

  1. I saw the one that interviews David Crosby a lot, & talks about Mama Cass a lot. Whichever title that was.
     
  2. Could be Laurel Canyon. Part 2 focused on Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, Eagles.

    Looks like Lucy has a hot date today, she's all spiffed up with this old Dobbs.

    The thrill is never really gone when you have that combo in the house!

    Yep, that's the old girl.
    I know why BB was always sitting down, that thing weighs more than any Les Paul you'll encounter.
     
  7. I've always thought flying V's are the most awkward things to play. I can see why heavy metal guitarists like to point them straight out, so they can hook the V on their leg.

    Did someone saying Flying V?

    You have to play them like a classical guitar when you're sitting down.
    One thing's for sure, there's no problem with upper fret access and they're light enough.
     
  9. Albert King had 5 V's & they were all carved with an arched top across the face as he preferred. I believe Joe Bonamassa owns one, Steven Seagal owns three in his collection, & one went back to Gibson.

    I didn't know that about his guitars, thanks!
    I knew he played a right handed one lefty and learned how to play by inventing his own tuning to where it sounded good to him.
    I had never seen a Flying V until I discovered Wishbone Ash as a kid after reading about them in Guitar Player Magazine.

  11. I think when Gibson quit using Tom Nelson pickups (or Nelson left Gibson, whatever that deal was) Albert stayed with THN pickups on his guitars. And Nelson may have actually carved & built the last couple of guitars for him. He gave credit of his sound to those Nelson pickups.
