    Introducing the "Other Gibson of the Month" feature and its new Host!!!

    We are VERY excited to introduce what we believe is going to be a very informative and fun new feature called "Other Gibson of the Month" which will feature, every month, a very cool Gibson, it's owner and the back story to the guitar and the hunt to get it.

    Tom could start this Other Gibson of the Month feature with a thread on this cool guitar.

    Guys,

    As this feature progresses, we'd like to feature our members' guitars and their stories behind them. Thus, get in contact with Tom with pictures and the guitar's backstory!

    I think this will be a great way to build community.

    This is awesome, Charlie. So excited Tom will be hosting. I second Tom W's suggestion. Starting with that beautiful, blonde, svelte L5 CES is a great idea! What a fabulous guitar!

    Hey guys, thrilled to do it.

    Charlie had asked for a different first Other Gibson of the Month than what TW suggested, but I like TW's idea better. Sorry Charlie. Give me a couple of days though to get it up. Oh wait, that's not what I mean. I mean to get it posted. I'm swamped at work right now because I lost 2 weeks to open heart surgery. I needed a new valve. All is well but I'm still catching up.

    And as Charlie says, I'm going to need some help here, so send photos and stories and they will get featured.

    Looking forward to this. At some point I hope I can offer something myself.

    Tom, glad your surgery went well. I just had an ablation procedure (for atrial fibrillation), which is way easier than what you went through, but I'm still recovering. Take care, and be well!

    Has burst of the month died too?

    I'll do amp of the month if you like......but it would be almost entirely Marshall.

    You are hired! That would be great. I'm sure some of our guys with some vintage Fenders would be happy to help you out!

    I think you've got a pretty nice recent acquisition that would start us off right!

    John, thanks for agreeing to host the amp section!

    We list the host names on each Forum, so let me know whether we can use your "real" name (which we prefer) or your LPF user name.

    I ended that in late 2013, after 10 years of a weekly feature. I got worn out trying to keep it fresh at that pace.

    However, monthly features are another matter.

    Thanks John and Tom .... really looking forward to what you both have up your sleeves.

    I used the 'Burst of the week feature as the basis for my personal study...learned so much from it over the years.

    Having a reference type thread for vintage Marshall's is a superb way to do the same.

    As the young 'uns say...subscribed...
