    J. Geils Vox Teardrop electric guitar

    I know you guys are sick of me posting about J. Geils, but I purchased the Morning After and Sanctuary albums at a record store today. Saw on the back of the Sanctuary album that J. Geils was playing a Vox Teardrop electric guitar. When did he acquire this guitar, what albums/tracks did he use...

    Ben Franklin wasn't a very good Founding Father...

    Ben Franklin was a pretty good guy, and I don't want to cause irreversible damage to his reputation or to his estate's representation. But I didn't really think he was influential as, say, Confucius or Thomas Jefferson. I like that Ben Franklin patented a lot of inventions, and made everyday...

    Tal Bachman playing a Gibson Les Paul

    Not sure if anybody knows about him, but he is the son of Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive guitarist Randy Bachman, and the nephew of drummer Robbie Bachman. Tal Bachman had a small but classic hit in 1999 called She’s So High. I love that song. So much so that I wound up buying a copy of...

    Jimmy McCulloch—the sad ending of his guitar playing tenure

    I made a similar post on my old account on the My Les Paul forum, before that account got deleted. Jimmy McCulloch is an overly obscure guitarist, and he deserved a lot of recognition in the 26 small years he spent on this planet. He spent a lot of those years playing with Paul McCartney, Linda...

    Vicki Peterson, Les Paul player

    This was originally posted on My Les Paul forum before my account got terminated, but just the same... Everyone always says Susanna Hoffs is the Bangles, Susanna Hoffs is a powerful guitarist etc...but nobody I know ever talks about Vicki Peterson. She mostly played a Gibson Les Paul on some...

    Paul Reed Smith Owls In Flight guitar--would it be worth buying?

    I picked up a Vintage Guitar magazine at Barnes and Noble a few months ago, and saw an ad for the Paul Reed Smith Owls in Flight guitar. It was designed in collaboration with Sweetwater (how's THAT for a collaboration?) It is personally crafted with attention grabbing exotic tonewoods, ultra...

    Should I purchase a Guild 12 string acoustic guitar?

    I have heard many, many good things about Guild 12 string acoustic guitars and thought I might need some help. A lot of them are very very expensive, but some of the cheapest I have seen are somewhere between $400 and $600. That's a decent enough price. Martin and Ovation also make some pretty...

    Paul Kantner of Jefferson Starship playing a white Gibson Les Paul

    Paul Kantner is a deeply powerful guitarist, and it's a shame that not many of my friends know about him. He mostly played Rickenbacker, Guild, Carvin, a Fender Stratocaster and a Gibson ES 355 electric guitar in the Airplane. He may have also played a Telecaster, but I can't remember. This...

    Whatever happened to the Gibson Flying V Electric guitar that Tom Dumont Of No Doubt played?

    I know this guitar is seen in the picture sleeve of the Tragic Kingdom CD (I no longer own my CD copy of Tragic Kingdom, so I used a previously existing photo) and he also played a Gibson ES 335 Electric guitar and a Fender Bass VI. But whatever happened to his Gibson Flying V? Did he not like...

    Some pictures of my Epiphone Les Paul

    I bought this guitar for $100 at a consignment store on Lawrenceville Highway in Atlanta on New Years Eve 2020. It was for $600, but the owner of the consignment store (a Vietnam veteran named Joe) said I could have it for way less. Carl Wilson Of The Beach Boys was a player of both Epiphone...

    Kesha playing a white Gibson Les Paul Custom

    I know a lot of you probably aren’t fans of the rapper known as “Ke-dollar sign-ha,” but I felt like posting pictures of her with a white Gibson Les Paul custom... Okay, not so much “playing” it as much as “posing” with it...but what do you guys think of this picture of her playing a LP? Is...

    Michael Allsup Of 3 Dog Night playing a 1970 Black Gibson Les Paul

    This was Michael Allsup’s primary electric guitar for much of the 3 Dog Night recording sessions. It’s a beautiful looking Les Paul. It was shown on the front cover of their 1970 album Naturally. You can also see a few Morley guitar foot pedals, a few Marshall amps, and a red Gibson SG...
