Some interesting commentary on Gibson Artist Relations, his signature ES-175, and other customs they made for him.

Goddammit. Am I going to have to see a Trogly video? I love Steve Howe, more than I can describe. Trogly on the other hand :D ...

Yup, it's worth the watch for Steve. He sounds very upbeat and energetic, even on the long distance call. Sound like he's still got a lot of rounds in the chamber and more output ready to be unleashed.

And for how much he's 'collected' and played, he's not so concerned with in depth techie know-how and focused on playing.

And almost makes me want to order that Tormato book!

Well thank you brother for bringing this to our attention! I am going to watch it now. Especially if they talk about Tormato, some brilliant Steve playing and sounds on that album! :)

How can I search for The Les Paul guitar without getting hundreds of threads? I trued The Les Paul Artist hoping to get more close to a few pages.

Admittedly, it's a tough one - study the syntax of your search engine to force and refine; depending on your search engine syntax, try adding quotation marks around terms and-or '+' before a term.

Also try adding "Limited" ... Year [i.e. 1978, 1979, etc.]

Also, narrow by adding attributes unique to this model:
- Brass Nut
- Highly Flamed Maple Neck
- Ebony and Rosewood Fingerboard
- Rosewood Knobs
- Rosewood Binding
- Rosewood Pickup Surrounds, etc.
- Gold TP-6 Bridge
- Gibson Artisan Case

and so on...

Trogly seems ok, just a little weird. I can't watch that Beatoff for fifteen seconds. I think him, Dave Groel and Joe "Bonna" Massa together is one of Dante's five circles of hell. No matter how many times I click 'hide content' they come back.
