    Here, there was an image of a sixty year old Gibson Les Paul all-gold Goldtop.
    It was resting on Old Glory, and on it's battered "Stone" Lifton-style case.
    Unfortunately Old Glory was "on the ground", which offended some folk here.
    So I have removed the image. I shall re-take it next time the light is right.
    Not on the ground, possibly not even on the flag of it's nation of birth.
    A people SO secure in themselves that somebody resting their flag on the
    ground to cradle one of that nations finest guitars causes offense.....

    Whereabouts did you see it ?
    Assuming it was in the USA,
    she did come from the collection of a name.....

    WTF !!!

    Just wanted to quote the guys who were offended by the flag being "on the ground",
    and say "OK - yah got your way, it's gone....."
    And "quote" failed.


    Then I notice a shed load of posts gone towards the end of the thread.
    Crap.

    Mods or Admins who stepped in - better delete the entire thread just to be safe.

    Merely "insightful"? Then you're lucky!

    My (deleted) post contained sublime secrets regarding the portrayal of absolute truth and beauty within the confines of the visual world.

    And now it's gone...like watercolors in the rain*...

    :(



    *Yes, I stole this metaphor...:laugh2:

    I always imagined this sort of thing happening in places like Iran etc :shock:

    Somewhere in a back yard in Des Moines an effigy of the Queen is being burnt............:laugh2:

    Difference is:-
    I could not care less. Burning an image of Madge Queeny has no effect on me.
    Placing Old Glory on the ground - well, I might as well have called ho on his momma.....

    "love it or leave it" I'm not sure where I've seen the Lifton with that sticker, but It's been posted. Very nice looking GT!
