I Got To Play A Real Guy 1956 Goldtop Last Night!
« on: June 15, 2015, 11:38:16 PM »
I was hanging out jamming at the Pit Stop last night and a guy came in to play who was also a collector.  He had a '56 Goldtop in tow that was the finest example imaginable!  He let me play it and I've got to tell you it had the finest, fastest neck I've ever played!  This guitar was just beyond belief!  There were no dents, dings, or cracks, just a tiny amount of very fine finish checking.  It was simply beautiful.  He said next week he's bringing in a '59 Standard flame-top, and I get to check that out as well!  I don't know what country you have to be president of to afford guitars like that, but I'm sure as Hell gonna find out!
They call it the Blues, but the shit makes me SMILE!

Does anyone ever read these things.  I have some guitars, some amps and some effects but none of them play the guitar for me.... Yet.

This guy claims to have one of every year Telecaster, and every year Strat, and a myriad of other Gibsons as well, and to top it off the #1 Broadcaster.  He's an ex-banker from Great Britain.  He says when the financial crash happened and prices dropped he swooped on dozens of guitars.
