    Re: The Big Al Good Mojo thread

    Thank you all so much. It has been hard but good vibes really help a fella feel better about life. Any one who knows me well, knows how much I love the love you all have shared with me over the gear we love. I have never looked down on anyones babies. I always see something so cool in each of them, mostly the esteem and pride of the owners who have shared them. Much like a persons playing, they are all unique and so cool. Ain't it neat we have such wonderful gear to express ourselves in our own unique way? There hasn't been one yet that has failed to perk me up.

    Here's a four gun R9 salute for Big Al! Basically four identical playing/sounding guitars with different tops...

    Yeah, that picture with Joe is killer, Mike. That guitar looks brand new (except for the tuners and dirty plastic)!

    Seriously, though, is the top still so shiny and color saturated, even though it looks like the fingerboard has seen some significant play wear?

    Re: The Big Al Good Mojo thread

    Ooooo I like the Jrs! Nothing growls like a P90 Jr!! Joe is indeed my hero and a mighty fine man and new pal. The BAD COCONUTS came about when a rather exuberent (Jamacan) forum member, who's name I forget, ( think carribean Stock Hippy), posted that abortive attempt at moding a righty too lefty, as his ideal Les Paul . I said he must have ingested some bad coconuts to believe that. Actually the simularities to Stock Hippy are kinda spooky now that I think of it.

    There are too many sunburst Les Pauls in this thread in the Sunburst Pub on the Les Paul Forum!

    Here's an SG instead.

    Ahh... A very cool and somewhat evil looking P90 loaded SG... Very nice

    I'm sure Big Al will appreciate the reflector knobs...

    Let's hope so! I just switched the knobs on my Les Paul to reflectors. Will have to take some new photos of that.


    Hope you like the SG Big Al! It's not vintage. It has a two piece body. It has stock electronics. It has a set of vintage Grovers. It might be the best guitar I own.

    No. He was from the Carribean or Cental America some place warm and tropical. He was always cryin' 'bout not having a Les Paul. A lot like STOCK HIPPY only he had a little anti USA streak to his views, he could be funny. I cannot for the life of me remember his name. He took great delight in posting pics of Bad Coconuts much too our collective dismay. Yet when I see those pics I get a chuckle and remember how it gave so much silly goofery joy to that dude.

    Big Al, here is one I know you will like. This is my 1970 routed Les Paul Deluxe. This is a modded Norlin that I have had since the summer before the 8th grade in '75. It has all the wrong stuff and is the best sounding LP I have played.

    You struck a chord in me with that post Al. I lost my best friend of 30 years to an auto accident 11 years ago. I've never laughed so deep with any human being before or since him. He and I could go off on a topic and the tears would flow. Goofy a sublime state of the mind? Oh yes!

    That's so cool Elmore, I miss the one I had back in the 70s as well as a few other things from that time in life! Mine still had the Mini's when I sold it to buy a coach, my perspective was way off back then! I waited almost 40 years to get another LP....foolishly! Wish I still had that ole girl, killer guitar "even though it did not come out of the 50s" like some of us and all the other good vintage stuff.

    Big Al, never met you, don't know you, other than here on line, where I still get to enjoy your unique sense of occasion and humour along with your ability to say things just right.

    Same with you Stock Hippie. An amazing individual and one who adds a dash of colour to this overcrowded grey rock we live on.

    You guys are different to the rest of the herd, yet you don't take yourselves ultra seriously all the time, as many of the others do, and when you have something to say, it's usually worth listening to.

    You guys are rare diamonds

    Don't ever change guys!

    Thanks, moonweasel and tdarian. I just got up the nerve to route neck pickup cavity about 3 years ago. I am glad I did. The bridge was done before I bought it way back then. Big Al, I bet if I had asked you about my hesitation to route it, you would have told me "WTF!, the damge is already done! WTF!". Makes sense to me. Keep fighting big guy, the world needs someone who can cut through the crap.

    Well, I get it Big Al and I always have. And I want to say I love you ALOT and have always enjoyed that BIG sense of humor of yours for so many years now. No doubt, you've shared that goofalicious joy with us over and over again and bring so much laughter and joy to the members of this forum, ME included. Thanks for that and please 'er coming.

    You know some scary life events seem to be happening everywhere recently, including around these parts - which is why I've been away for the most part recently - dear friends, loved ones and fellow musicians. I guess its just how life is but lately it seems more intense than ever...but anyway, you know I love you and my prayers will be going out for you every single night and that is a promise.

    Sending my goofalicious good vibes your way, my friend.
    Love ya! Lily
