This has been in my regular rotation for a while. A great player really brings out the glory of a great guitar.

One of my favorite players, and he knows how to work that guitar. I honestly think the amp sound is not great, but it's obvious that the guitar has a wonderful range of voices. I like and agree with the microphonics working really well along with the main pickup signal. And geez, with a touch like that, a player can work wonders. It's a great testimonial to non-overwound, non "hot" pickups.

I know that the burst doesn't belong to him but there are a couple of other great videos where Barrie reviews and plays some of his personal (more) affordable vintage Gibsons.

Certainly a great sounding guitar! The pickups have got some fantastic accoustic/microphonic qualities.

It's the first '59 video where I can actually hear why the guitar should be worthy of it's mythical status.
Another outstanding example of the 59's greatness is this video. It doesn't hurt that he's playing through a Trainwreck Express amp, either.

Yes, very nice indeed! The cab is also a big part of the sound. G12Ms, Pulsonic cones no doubt.
