    What a great vid!!! Joe's love of this beloved instrument of ours is infectious and his tour around a quite breathtaking collection is delivered with a self deprecating, modest humour that is very honest and charming. :thumb:

    That was a fantastic video, thanks to all involved.

    Joe, I'm totally in love your Jazzmaster and that Jag, wow, that was a hell of a day!

    wtf? That is s lame......

    Joe is a great guy and, yes, he was at those guitar shows back in the '80s and '90s with his Dad, Lenny. We used to do a lot of deals together when I worked at Outlaw Guitars in Jersey in the '80s-90's. I doubt he remembers me, but I am very happy for his success. This is a guy who loves guitars!

    Funny thing....I played both "The Babe" and the "Skinnerburst" when they were being sold at Rumbleseat. I would up trading a bunch of guitars for
    0 8145, which another forum member owns now.

    It sounds great, and, like Joe says, he either likes them mint or with a lot of wear.
    Fast forward to a couple years later.....I saw 0 7442 and fell in love with that one. Just a plaintop with significant wear. But it sounds fantastic.

    BTW....Joe wound up buying a double bound Rickenbacker a week or two ago which I used to own.....so maybe he is expanding his horizons!
    Good for you, Joe. Keep on rocking! I'm happy for ya!

    I made a video of the room with the Tweeds a while back, so my g/f understood that my collection isn't that much of a problem.

    I showed it to my wife a couple of nights ago to show that I'm not all that bad and she said within a couple of seconds, "yes, but he's Joe."

    I had no good response.

    HA! yeah showing to the wives ain't gonna help because they are just going to say "ok well when you play like Joe and sell out theaters then you can get all that stuff!"

    Awesome video by the way! Thanks to reverb and to Joe!

    So, the Russion tosser Steven Seagal is his buddy. Joe obviously has not bothered to teach his mate guitar.
