    Okay, that's it. I'll stop pretending to play guitar this second. God, this guy is good!!!

    Also, if I hadn't quit playing the geetar 5 sec ago, I'd take that gold top over the burst ... but only in a package deal with J.D.

    No. That's the Goldtop I've owned for a LONG time. It goes to every gig with me!

    It's been refretted with larger wire. It was that way when I got it. I don't know who did the job, but they did a great one.

    I think most will agree, 1:24 and 1:31 is not enough. We need more. Feed the need.

    Great tone and great playing. I'm looking forward to catching JD's show again in Cincinnati Thursday night.

    That Goldtop is special. JD is a great player and a good dude on top of it.

    Different but amazing. I think I like the sound of the Burst a little better, because it's honkier and hairier. The Goldtop looks better.

    JD sounds smoking in both clips. A good bit of difference between the sound of those guitars. Both great but different. Seems the burst has a bit more output. But I'm not exactly listen on a Bang and Olufsen It is an IPAD to be exact.
    Again it's giving the right table saw to a great carpenter. Still gotta know how to measure twice and cut once.

    Man, this guy is an unleashed animal on that plank with strings. Or in Joe B.'s words: This guy is a hell of a carpenter!

    But Charlie, you should really film/upload these videos in high(er) definition. They're totally worth it.

    Awesome. Two beauties in the hands of a master.
    Charlie, out of curiosity, what year is the wine red one(custom?) sitting on a stand?

    great post, that playing was searing hot, loved it!

    I rate that burst, I think the colour is just right, it's faded nicely but still retains some of the original red. Both guitars sounded HUGE!! Couldn't pick a favourite

    The 57 is my favourite.
