Not a Glamour Shot. But a quick one. Other case holds a Heritage Cherry SG.
You can go out, have a bite to eat and still be hearing that one. ;-)
I gave away both of my guitars, it's great to see a thread like this as it reminds me of my youth.
My first “serious” guitar was a 76 SG I bought new in that year. Within a year, I switched to a Strat as my three biggest influences were Beck, Blackmore and Rory Gallagher.
These days I have guitars beyond the Strat, but that is what I cut my teeth on and made a nice living with up to my 30’s.
I’m glad you like the thread. I’ve mentioned my music job in threads here over the years, but I’ve always been reluctant to start a thread.
Happy to talk guitars, amps, gear, and such.
Aye, Sir. Rory. Experienced Uriah Heep twice. Mick Box was no slouch. And still playing, I believe.
Saw Faces first US tour with Mr. Stewart. With Savoy Brown and The Grease Band. What a time - when youth was never ending. Y’all have a good weekend.
100% awesome. Somehow I missed that you built pro-audio tube gear.
I'm listening through a Cary SLI-80, via 'phones, right now.
I put Weber speakers in my Music Man 4-10 65. Same Weber?
Different Weber. Those are great speakers though.
Gerald Weber. I've used his speakers in amps also. Here's a funny video of Gerald.
I believe those are Ted Weber, not Gerald. https://tedweber.com/
Gerald Weber's speakers are branded "Kendrick" and that's what comes in my amp posted in the thread.
Looks like Tod Rundgren there.
As promised, here's a link to a Black Pearl demo I did many, many, many moons ago. You'll recognize the guitar from my original pic in this thread. Don't be too critical . Back when this was made, you had to make a clip 20 seconds or less or it wouldn't load up. Footnote: That's a Tommy Bolin lick I'm playing from a Deep Purple tune.
For years I played through a Victoria Bassman, that I wound up selling to a friend of mine. It works great for guitar, harmonica, baritone, and I've even used it for a PA. Never tried the Kendrick version, but I have a pretty good idea what it would sound like compared to the Victoria.
Mark Baier is the founder of Victoria, and a wonderful fella. "Need tubes? What's your address?". One of his prototype amps was stolen from us by some sleazebag at a festival in Florida. I often wonder what ever happened to that thing.
Back in the late 1900's, we were sitting in the dressing room at Buddy Guy's old place, and I was talking to Mark about Ishmond Bracey, an old blues guy that nobody has even heard of except me and Mark. I remember telling him that I couldn't find any of Bracey's music anywhere. Mark reaches into his coat pocket and produces an Ishmond Bracey CD out of thin air, told me to keep it! That was weird. I'll never forget it.
Amps? I've had a few.
I've been away from guitars and amps for a few years and getting old and mixed up. Yes, the speakers I got from Gerald are labeled Kendrick. The Weber's I bought were Red something or another.
I've got cabinets all over the place and I forget what speakers are in them.
Another totally underappreciated bluesman.....Skip James..........note some of the greats just listening.
Hello, it’s me......
I've thought about us for a long, long time....
