    Just saw Peter last Thursday 7/27 at The Beacon Theater in NYC, he made a short introduction for this guitar then played it for a few songs.

    He was great, far better then I expected. Robert Cray band opened and Don Felder and Roger McGuinn both played with Peter.

    Saw him at the Beacon last year, the night he brought out his '54 since he got it back and then again last Friday. At the Beacon that night, he only used his '54 for DYFLWD. The other night, he used it quite a bit. As for his playing, he's as good, if not better than he ever was. Robert Cray and Don Felder were outstanding. I would have liked to see the three of them playing together though. That would have been nice.

    He'll be at the Trump Taj Mahl on August 10th.

    I hope he makes this an annual type thing. I think that would be pretty cool.

    FWIW
    When I saw him in Florida last month, he played the FCA Custom for most of the show, only playing a PF reissue for one song, ES guitars for a couple songs, and a Historic/Burst for a couple of songs.

    Yup, that seems to be his MO now Rev. I was actually surprised that he used one of his signature models this time around. He obviously likes them.

    Good old Peter Frampton...He got me back into playing guitars and inspires me as to how to keep on rocking and playing and go on living life to the fullest. Peter still has that twinkle in his eyes of a man who is 25.

    Saw him at Casino Rama a few weeks back and he used his 54 for the better part of the show. He did use an ES335 for a bit and surprisingly, a beautiful burst for a few numbers. I believe he closed the show with the 54, at which point it was probably cased and put in to Peter's Limo, because he used the signature model for the encores.

    Really cool to see Peter doing Hotel California with Don Felder and his legendary EDS1275 (does he run each neck throgh a different amp?) and his version of Black Hole Sun was amazing as well!

    Here's the breakdown from last Friday night:

    Magic Moon - "Paulina" i.e. his '60s RI.

    Dobbie Wah - His '54.

    Lines On My Face - His '54.

    Show Me The Way - Tobacco Sunburst ES-335 Dot.

    Wind Of Change - Martin D-42.

    Double Nickels - Cherry ES-335 Block.

    (I'll Give You) Money - His '54.

    Hotel California - His signature model (didn't look like PF 003, since the binding appeared to be very white to me?).

    Pride And Joy - "Paulina".

    Baby I Love Your Way - Gibson acoustic (not sure what model?).

    Black Hole Sun - Drawing a blank? Could have been the '54 or his signature model?

    Do You Feel Like We Do - His '54 (of course!).

    While My Guitar Gently Weeps - His '54.

    Any why not? :D They're great guitars, if a little spendy. :applause:

    Yes, the 12-string neck on Felder's 1275 goes through a separate amp into a Leslie speaker, something PF uses as well on a number of FCA tunes. All the upside of a chorus pedal or phaser, but without that artificial "woosh". PITA to haul around though.

    You guys don't know what you're talking about. Look at this guitar virtuoso and tell me the "music" of today lacks substance. This guy would be near genius if he had another 140 points added to his single digit IQ. Listen to that melodic solo. Tell me it's not inspiring you to tears (of laughter). And he played that so-low using only one string and three frets. It must have taken him seconds, minutes, no wait, it would have taken this guy hours to come up with that garbage.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Smb8tMeRTQQ"]lil wayne guitar - YouTube[/ame]

    So called music of today isn't music. It's SH*T. Copied, stolen, sampled, SH*T.

    Having played in marching, concert, and jazz band in high school in the early to late 1970s, I can say that without a doubt music of that era was complex, sophisticated, and had meaning. What passes (or is marketed) as music today is nothing but SH*T meant to pacify the lowest common denominator of society. That includes most so-called "country" music too.

    [C]Rap music sells because the audience it's marketed to will buy anything they are led to believe is "hip," "gangsta," or any of the other terms they use in their vile culture just as they are attracted to shiny bobbles, or what they call "bling."
