    Very cool... I can't believe he actually travels with that thing in the original Lifton case... I wouldn't trust that case at all!

    Gorgeous guitar. Thanks for sharing!

    That is just all sorts of awsome. Quick question though, I'm not accustomed to looking at vintage LPs but I'm noticing more and more that the tail piece on some appears to be slightly slanted. Am I seeing this correctly or have I been looking to closely at the screen again? :hmm:

    Billy looks great, the guitar looks awesome. Thank you for posting this, cool to see him after his heyday. Didn't care for the tone of the amp with the guitar though, sounded very tiinny to me. Billy is def a great player.

    I wouldn't judge the tone based off my cheapie point and shoot kodak - I thought he sound pretty good - he was using a nice Reinhardt combo.

    Prolly so :), was it that much of a difference from live. I usually can tell no matter what recorder is being used, you can kinda give and take with it.

    One of these days I need to break down and get a decent camera, this is just for a grab-n-go.

    yes that is one of the things that many people complain about with the reissues; they don't slant the tail; although the 2009+ models are a little closer, still not to the degree you see here. but even with the vintage guitars, they were not all the same with the tail piece slant. some seem more slanted than others.
