Here's an interesting one -



On the dvd, during like a little tribute to Koss, the camera pans across a whole lot of photos, and one of them is of a hand just holding this guitar.

Also this one:

It has sort of a similar flame to the stripped burst, so if the stripping was done during Koss' ownership of the guitar, I think this could be it. I could also be very wrong:






Burst serial log has this next one down as 0 0195:


link (has colour pics of this guitar!): Burst Serial Log

And lastly some Custom action:

1955 Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar owned by Paul Kossoff of Free.

That's a killer photo of Kos playing that Custom by the window. :thumb:

He was such a little guy in stature, I think he let his guitar playing do the talking.

Darkburstin' on "Doin' Their Thing, Granada TV, 24th July 1970"









Look between and above the pickups, some beautiful subtle flame:






Simon Kirke's funky boots:


Definately not a plain top! Koss flashes his flame:

(Sadly that's the best pic I could get that shows the flame)
My R8 looks a lot like his darkburst.

Nuff said.:cool:
I would respectfully say that one could go a bit further; as well as the understatement and delicacy there was a power and intensity he could summon that makes "flash" guitar playing sound hollow and shallow in comparison.

You are very welcome - They are from the dvd, the sequences that his brother Simon shot, but sadly he has misplaced the sound cartridge.

By the way....

I was googling the other day, and found a Kossoff link from the other Les Paul forum, apparently it was a link to the Kossoff4ever forum where somebody was telling about how they had met Kossoff on a train on the way to London and had chatted with him. The problem was that that forum is now defunct and I could find now way of finding the thread. Is anybody familiar with this story or know where I might get the thread?

Cheers.

Koss must have been a little dude. Those LP's look huge on him.

You get no argument from me on that. I would like to add, if I was going to use one word to describe Paul Kissoffs playing it would be. "Sublime".

Cool pics Angus... I'm so gutted they lost the audio to that show, its quite frustrating just watching and not being able to hear.
