    Re: 0 0284 The Duggie Lock Burst

    Congrats on an absolutely awesome guitar, and welcome to the plaintop ‘burst “club”! Wow, that thing just oozes character, from the grain and color to the checking and battle scars. Very cool! And also very cool that you got to hang out with Ed...a truly wonderful guy and gracious host, as I’m sure you experienced.

    Enjoy!

    Here's a little video of Charlie demonstrating a 1960 Les Paul Standard, 1960 ES 335 TDN, 1961 Les Paul Custom, and 1952 Goldtop.

    Demonstrating may be a stretch. “Wanking on” may be more accurate!


    Great hang.

    GREAT guitar!!!

    Re: 0 0284 The Duggie Lock Burst

    I really had a fun hang with Mark, his beautiful wife Maile, and Mick the dog. Mick was the star of the show! Coolest dog ever!
    The weather in Nashville was freezing and overcast, so we did the best we could do with our photo shoot (y'all know how I love sunshine outdoors!).

    Anyway...here's a few shots of Duggie. This is a phenomenal sounding and playing guitar with a ton of character.

    Amazing guitar and a cool story. The faded burst makes it really awesome. To much red and the look is dead

    A fantastic showing and a beautiful guitar. Thank you for sharing!

    Mt1986, please make sure that when you get the '58 back, you give us the same treatment with that guitar. All you had to say was 'Carters' and '1958' and I already knew which Les Paul you were talking about. As soon as I heard that guitar in a demo, that was it. It had the 'IT' factor, for me at least. Just absolute tonal perfect. I've got that demo of your guitar on regular rotation in my 'best guitar tone' playlist (as well as a lot of Joey Landreth demos!). Even with whatever issues it presented, wow...just what a fabulous guitar and when I saw that it had sold, I wondered where it had gone. I'm so glad it went to someone who sounds like a wonderful caretaker, who is also on this forum, who is also willing to share! I would LOVE to see more of this instrument and will thoroughly enjoy anything you decide to share of it!

    Thanks again and cheers!

    To all the Chicken Littles who proclaim the sky is falling in the vintage world because there's no new blood in it, I love pointing them to guys like Mark.

    And oh yeah...he's got GREAT taste in guitars!

    The 58' will be covered in great detail with photos documenting the entire process. The sound of Tommy nailing Brown Sugar is forever etched in my mind as well! I will try and get him to have a go on it again if I can find the time.

    do you wait for a certain part of the day in order to get the light just right for those shots?

    Under ideal conditions, I like shooting mid-morning or late afternoon, and always outdoors. The natural sun makes the flame pop.

    These were not ideal conditions. It was freezing and overcast in Nashville. Thus, we shot indoors with whatever natural light there was coming in from the window. I had to bump the ISO (film speed) up really high.

    Given the conditions, I was happy with the results.

    Re: 0 0284 The Duggie Lock Burst

    The one aspect the relic guys have not addressed is that ultra-high polished lacquer look. A million shirtsleeves and grime and sweat, and some beer create something in a notch between right off the buffing wheel and 15000 grit polishing cloth. Varnish filled with hideous metal-based toxins and organic solvents.
    CD's last shot really captures that.
    Congrats on your new guitar.

    I’m just learning about cameras and until you mentioned that I didn’t get that ISO in a digital camera (sensitivity of the sensor) is based off the same thing as the old film speed.

    now the real question is — when you change the iso on the camera to a certain number does that correlate in a relative manner to what old film speed sensitivity was and if so- it may be correct to still use that terminology even though it is “digital” film speed its basically the same?

    Yes...as with film, the higher the ISO the "grainier" the photo will look. In the digital world, they call it noise, but it's the same thing for all practical purposes.

    Mega congrats and play her in good health .I have to say that after listening to the 2 clips that the tone of the bridge pickup is to die for and I am most certainly in lust of that tone .Wow , nothing beats a vintage Burst with some super amazing PAF'S ! (What amps were used in the 2 clips ? )

    Thanks for the kind words. The bridge pickup is no doubt one of the finest I have ever heard. The amp used in both clips is a 1958 Hi Power Tweed Twin that used to belong to Tony Joe White.

    I have learned quite a bit more very cool info about the guitar and some previous owners in the last weeks as well. It wouldn't be fair to share until the incredible article by Huw Price comes out as he did all of the legwork.

    They line up with the string mounting posts on the Bigsby. Somebody was less than gentle while stringing most likely.

    With The Guitar Magazine article coming out tomorrow I will be able to update some further information about the Duggie. In the meantime here's some raw sounds of a couple old guitars.

    Re: 0 0284 The Duggie Lock Burst

    As Huw Price's article in The Guitar Magazine is now live, I thought it would be cool to add some further backstory about 0 0284. Although Doug Lock's previous ownership has gotten most of the attention, I think the period of 1970-1971 when Luther Grosvenor had possession of this is well worth exploring. Luther played in Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, Widowmaker and many other bands. During his time with Mott he went by the stage name of Ariel Bender. From the photo and video attached he played this guitar for a period of a couple years and during that time Spooky Tooth put out The Last Puff album. The same year Luther also put out a solo record called Under Open Skies that is nothing short of excellent. After listening as close as I am capable of, it seems to me this guitar was played on both of those albums. That nasally cocked wah bridge sound is apparent and screams this guitar to me. I have been trying to get a hold of Luther, but haven't had much luck yet. I think it would be great if he could share some memories of his time with the Duggie and any recordings it might be featured on.

    Beautiful guitar - congrats! And I too am looking forward to the thread about the ‘58 from Carters. I got to hold that jewel when I was there a little over a year ago. Congrats again!
