    Show and tell!!

    Love the L50 Robert! Iíve always wanted a semi-hollow electric...

    3 of my beauties bellow. 1st, my G&L S500 (Ď90). Leo Fender/George Fullerton design. Alder body, maple neck, hand wound p/uís. Besides the 5 way switch it also has a toggle switch where you can tap the bridge and neck p/uís or all three at the same time. Traded a 70ís strat for it. It sounds more like a strat than a Fender does!(if thatís possible). Put a Tube Screamer between it and a Fender Blues Deluxe amp and itís got an extremely similar sound to SRV.

    2nd is my main axe I play the most. Itís a Paul Reed Smith Custom 22. Quilt maple top, mahogany body and neck through top, rosewood fretboard. The p/uís are Dragon ll hummers. Itís a 2000 model. Cost me a fortune, but I figured it would be the last guitar I buy (I hope!). Itís great clean or over drived.

    Last, my SG Standard. (80ís) . Got it from a guy that was desperate for the cash. It was candy apple red. In great condition, except the finish seemed ďstickyĒ to me, no matter how much I polished, rubbed, played, it just felt tacky. So I took it apart and stripped all the paint on it and refinished it with tung oil. It plays like a dream now, and I think it even sounds better. Itís my open tuning guitar I use for slide or open tuned songs ( like ďKeefĒ Richards stuff).

    And no, the pic isnít reversed. Theyíre all lefties, like me. Iíve got 4 other electrics ( mostly Epiís and a Carvin I built from a kit), but they generally stay cased. These usually suite my sonic needs.

    That's it. It's a fairy tale, not too much syrup, a quality production, cast, and soundtrack.

    Full hollow archtop. My second guitar gifted to me by my parents at age 9 (first guitar was a "Stella").

    That's a beauty. Love rosewood fretboards. Just the right amount of bite for my taste.

    That drummer is fantastic! And where the heck did they find Michael Batio to play Highway Star with them?

    They work so well together, the most talented and experienced group of musicians I've seen/heard in ages. A gift from the gods.

    Batio and the rest are Chicago based, he was just sittin' in. I prefer the other guitarist, John Ryan.

    I haven't watched all of their performances, but a few of my other favorites are Tell Mama, Dancing Madly Backward (5/4 time- not easy to dance to!), Ghost Riders in the Sky, You Got That Right, Spill The Wine, Journey to the Center of the Mind, Frankenstein, and of course-

    Yea, they definitely can quit their day jobs..

    Agreed. Ryan is way better suited for their repertoire. Batio is all about speed metal. He does put on a show though playing over and under the neck.

    The drummer was a letter carrier for twenty years, probably contributing to his right foot strength and stamina. Check out Riders on the Storm, another goody.

    Witness an uncommonly high degree of emotion, passion, and skill interpreting a Beatles classic. From the album Blow by Blow.
