There's a 1984 Gibson on Display at the Smithsonian. I got to see this yesterday.



Initially I misread the placard and though it was a 1952, with this excitement, I create a blog about it:

Gibson Electric Guitar on Display at the Smithsonian

If I noticed that it was 1984, I wouldn't have blogged about it... but I do think it's great that they are sharing the story of the Les Paul and do have one on display.

Hey guess what section of the forums this is? Not the one where guitar talk is relevant.

just about everything is relevant here

if chucklesmcginty can post a new thread about something i cant make sense of that just turns into a chat thread every other day then this dude can share his experience of seeing an old guitar in a museum

OT: TS, if you liked that, you should go to the EMP museum in Seattle someday. I'm going there in a few months to see the guitar that hendrix lit on fire, or what's left of it. Plenty of other rad music related things are there too

And a section of highway. The Les Paul Parkway. It goes past a mattress store.

I like the other items more.

'Atlantic cable souvenir' - 'first submarine cable connecting Europe to North America... Pieces of leftover cable were sold as souvenirs for 50 cents. The cable itself failed within a few days.'

Now, that is exciting.

It's a Les Paul Studio...

Not exactly a riveting piece of gear, if I do say so myself.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

This is such a non-event it definitely didn't need a thread… which conveniently has a link to your blog in the first post. This is not a place where we let users post just to advertise their business/blog etc.

If your intentions were genuine, well this is not really anything special - the guitar there isn't anything special or revered and plenty of people have played rarer and more expensive guitars here.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.
