Since I deal with digital pictures all day I rarely take any.
But when I do, they come out very funny, much to my embarrassment.

Those semi-hollows look very attractive to my G.A.S.-ing eyes

Each orange beast was a major GAS attack requiring large sacrifice.
The old one I got in trade for a '62 SG I'd had since 69.
The newer one cost me quite a few vintage pedals.
Thanks for digging them,
Jim

The double-cut is a 71-72.
About the last of it's original type.

I'd say the latter, myself. Nice boxes!


Always remember that you�re unique. Just like everyone else.

Tripod and timer, please. \:D

I love the first pair. Dark, demure and smoky.

Jimash, I own a Gibson like the one on the right in the top photo. I've always wondered what model it was. Do you know? What is it?

Thanks.

Oh,
That is a Gibson Les PAul '55 .
Some of them have one peice bridge/tailpeices.
Some have gold lettering on the back of the headstock, saying "Les PAul 55/78" ( especially the 78's)_
They usually have a tan case that is wearing badly.

Mine has none of these features (except the really bad case) and has the wrong type of serial number for this guitar.

In this particularly eerie pic you can see the plastic circles under
the bridge where it was apparently drilled for an old style and then factory filled and covered up. They are glued on.

It's some kind of second or prototype.
It picked me up in a bar.

I have to say: I didn't want that Gibson..
It sounds deadly.
The body is one peice, the neck a fairly typical mid-seventies three peice with a dainty volute.
You can see the big 70's bridge that must have been an afterthought,
It has a feel like an old guy who really knew , did the fretboard and scrounged up old P90's from somewhere.
It's also extremely heavy.

By, "It sounds deadly", do you mean b!tch!n'-deadly-baaad@$$-in-a-good-way, or just "dead"?

Jim, if you're using a digital snapshot camera it's definitely the... magical vibe off your guitars! ;\)

I don't want to wreck your vision of guitar mojo, but the reality is, if it is a digital snapshot and you're not using the flash, it's too dark in the room to take that shot without the aforementioned tripod.

I was thoroughly pissed off when my digital camera arrived because only then did I discover it had no manual control. I took a bunch of similar pics because I didn't want to flash the subject. It's turned out ok, but I really need a digital SLR. The snapshot drives me nuts in situations like that. :rolleyes:

Here are a few examples that still look good:

This is the shot that told me I was SOL for sharp shots sans flash indoors:


Another from the same experiment:


This was a shot I had to take many times before getting a keeper. It was in the dark with a single par16 with an orange gel shooting up to my then 4 year old's face. Flash would've ruined everything.

A tripod is definitely in order. It's my wife's mid-line Sony, which I guess I have to bone up on.
I think I do alright with my video camera tho' I just did these in like 30 seconds w/ lamp light. [img]http://www1.snapfish.com/slideshow/Album...149/t_=17909149[/img]

Nice p'up pic of the Gibby!

Yep, you've a long exposure. You can get good still life shots with the tripod, but forget about movement without the flash, except outdoors. ;\)

I think tripod flash and fill lighting too.
What does the 200-400 etc. setting do in a digital camera anyway?


Thanks Neil
