I thought that was Stitch Jones/Mario Van Peebles?
The whole of Tales from Topographic Oceans was played on a junior.(not this one)
Classic. I lol'd.
a TV junior isn't typical for Steve, who became famous playing the ES175.
I recommend letting him do as he wishes as it appears to be eating all the publicity up.
Get a wood chipper for all I care.
Why is it a thread like this can get all drools and "oohs and ahhs":
But when Jeggz wants to fix a guitar that was modded he gets beaten up?
**** if you don't feel like clicking the link, it's the story of a vintage guitar that will have had the crap modded out of it, and then called a '59 "conversion", when in fact it will be a buggered '52.
That's why I don't have Facebook,, I tell ya it's all going to shyte. the whole inter webs
I wasn't getting beat up at all, I'm winning!
I thought you went dark!
This is the perfect example of the difference between a player and a collector....
If you come to the fall Philly show, bring the LP along!
I'd love to see it in person.
And parts of the first Asia album, at least the Heat of the Moment intro. I have no clue if it was this one or a single-cut. I would imagine that a letter of provenance would have been created for the sale if this guitar had been on a lot of albums though.
If I was a Bill Gates type, I'd buy it from the OP. It's a cool guitar by nature, plus I like Steve Howe. It's out of my league though.
The OP isn't foolish. He is saving all of the parts so if he sells or trades it everything will be there for the next owner of "a Steve Howe guitar". There's no need to get outraged.
Hallelujah, brothers and sisters !!!!
Because Steve Howe.
Does the 52/59 have any provenance? Owned and/or played by anyone noteworthy? Perhaps used on a studio recording by aforementioned noteworthy player?
Both are buggered guitars. One just happened to be owned and played by someone you hear on the radio.
I vote for a "Who's Steve?" stencil across the back just to send Yes fans to the ER !
I have poor impulse control...
Funny thing is, the one person I spoke with that was genuinely interested in buying a stock 59 and trading me, said, "No way, why ya ripping me off ?" when I told them what I paid for it.
They wanted to save it from my evil clutches, right up until the point of feeling as if they weren't getting a "deal".
This EX Steve Howe "The Les Paul"was used on lots of his albums and the reason I first bought a Les Paul. Its somehow in mint condition even though he toured the world with it since 77. If I was rich I would by this in a heartbeat.https://reverb.com/item/5817030-gibson-the-les-paul-1976-previously-owned-by-steve-howe
Honestly, from the condition of the guitar, I don't think it was used alot.
Way back in the day I played with a guy who had one of those palm two prong Bigby's on a Tele. He was a big Clarence White fanatic and didn't have the bread or maybe the balls to have a full blown Parsons device chainsawed into the back those things require what they might call invasive surgery and there ain't no turning back once you start. He could get some pretty slick pedal steel sounds out of that and an old tape Echoplex.
