    Who is this Bonamasa guy ? I had to google him. Still don't really know. What has he done? Why is Eppiphone throwing so many different LTd editions his way?

    Really?

    I mean, he's not as big as Beyonce or anything, but he's hardly an unknown.

    I'll admit I'd never heard of him outside of this forum, but then, I live in the forest with a bunch of animals, and generally keep to myself.

    He's a very accomplished blues guitarist with a sizable following, and a reputation for exceptional live shows. I'm sure he influences thousands of guitarists and future guitarists, so a big endorsement is hardly a surprise.

    He is also a known collector of vintage guitars and amps, with a pile of goodies to make any of us drool.

    Check him out; you'll be impressed! I did, and I am. :thumb:

    Ya, that describes me too :laugh2: Great for turning the amp to 11 !!

    Bonamassa got a dozen studio albums since 2000. What's a good listen if I were to check him out ??

    Live from the Royal Albert Hall is one of my favorites.

    An Acoustic Evening At The Vienna Opera House is also up there.

    I've done my sampling by checking out the youtube live vids posted here, and then just keep going.

    I have never listened to his studio recordings, though.

    yes to both of the above :thumb:

    i watch/listen to his live work any time i can find it, the studio things i honestly have not sought out....but i find the true talent shows up in a live performance for any artist most often or the lack thereof....

    the above shows are great work, you will not be dissappointed and think you are pulling our leg that you never heard of him...:hmm:

    its just my preference

    oh and i posted a poll for the new Epi FB offering...i might order one, with all due respect to joe, i really want a single pickup FB and does not matter if there was any endorsement or marketing deal

    A one-pickup Firebird would be of no interest to me anyway, but Bonamassa's name on anything makes it untouchable.

    The guys seems to have an ego way disproportionate to his talent. There are MUCH more interesting blues players out there.

    i am not thrilled its an epiphone, joes' name on it does matter to me, i want a firebird body with a single pickup, copy of a 63....for $800 i am willing to give it a shot but wont hesitate to send it back if it doesnt feel right to me

    that is why i want one....if the body is perfect i can always make it sound the way i want it..

    dont really agree with your opinion of joe but thats fine...would like to hear what other players you would recommend as more interesting as i am always open to hearing players i have not found yet...

    Here's Joe playing a nice solo with Rock Candy Funk Party. It feels like a small venue and he's pretty casual which I like.
