    Play it Loud

    Make sure you see this show. It’s like going to church. The Holy trinity is there. All the gear of Clapton Beck And Page. I’d post some closeup pics but this site drives me crazy with the uploading nonsense.
    Clapton’s Blackie and fool SG. Becks Telecaster from the yardbirds. Page’ whole live rig Marshalls and effects. Dano, number 1 les Paul, and doubleneck. His dragon Telecaster and Supro from LZ1. Hendrix’s Flying V And strat from Woodstock. Eddie Van Halen’s rig and Frankenstein guitar. Kieth Richards stage rig and Mcawber tele. And bixby Les Paul from Ed Sullivan 64. Elvis first acoustic. Chuck Berry’s guitar he recorded Johnny B Goode with. A prototype tele from 49, a 54 strat, and an unidentifed 59 burst. And much much more.

    Love to see those pictures if you could persevere with the hosting thing...imgur perhaps (free and easy to use) ?

    A simple right click to save image in imgur, then right click again to paste it into your post. A bit of a faff first time, but simple after that.

    Re: Play it Loud

    I went to see this yesterday, and I have to say that if you can find a way to get there, do it, you won't be disappointed! Once I got over the initial awe of seeing so many iconic guitars in one place, I couldn't help but feel that these guys, EVH, Page, Clapton etc. could've made just about any rig sound great. But seeing Blackie, Frankenstein, JP's Les Paul Custom and all of the rest just inches away was unforgettable.

    I made the trek from Los Angels to New York just to see this show. Itís a once in a lifetime chance to see an incredible rock níroll instrument collection up close. Donít sleep on this exhibit, find a way to get there and see almost every iconic classic rock ní roll guitar up close.

    Re: Play it Loud

    So I’ve been there several times since I’m local. The last visit I was really looking at Pages number 1. I took many photos but again, I don’t have the patience to deal with another site to upload photos. I wish it were easier or I’d post more often. Anyway, I noticed an extra hole in the pickguard bracket. Anyone have any ideas or info on this?

    I’m about a three hour drive to NYC for me so I’m planning to head down there in August to see the display. Can’t wait, looking forward to this, especially Page’s #1 and backline, the EVH FrankenStrat and Clapton’s Blackie.

    Thanks for this. I always thought Page’s Zoso Marshall cabinet was simply a standard Marshall cab with “Zoso” painted on the grillcloth. It appears it’s a white plastic overlay, screwed over the grillcloth.

    Planning on seeing this exhibit sometime this summer on a day trip to the city. Living close to NYC I have seen a number of exhibits and shows that have allowed me to see famous guitars up close in the past. I hear this one is quite amazing!
