    Decided to take a leaf out of the @johnbohlinger playbook and add some Les Paul (the guy, not the guitar) licks into my western swing bag of tricks, so after giving this old Les Paul Custom a fret dress the other day I figured it'd be a good shakedown test. Bonus points if you can pick some of the other players I've borrowed from here (the end one is pretty blatant!)

    A 90s-pre-Fender-Japan Era @officialgretsch Duo Jet.
This one, @alexiuspeter showed me in 2006. He may have known that the gold sparkle perfectly matched our Slingerland drum set. Or I may have mentioned my love for Bigsby trend. It he may have sensed that the mix of elegance and slight clunkiness that makes a Gretsch a Gretsch would appeal to me.
Either way - he always knew what I needed and this is a fantastic guitar. The D’Armonds are prone to whistle feedback, but it sounds so good when played loud.
It tends tobe at its best with slightly worn-in strings and low powered tube amps.

    Someone just ordered himself a Hofner verythin CT electric guitar as an early bday gift. I do plan to buy the bigsby vibrato attachment for the final look. Also plan to give the pick guard a red custom paint job to give it that same SPG aesthetic.

    P90 in the neck, and a coil splitting humbucker in the bridge is really one of my favourite combos. During the extensive playing in/testing I spent on this today I almost forgot it had a bigsby, as I was having so much fun just with the tones available from the pups. This is a really cool guitar.
