See, that's why the welfare state/folkhemmet is a good thing. In this case: Americana folkhemmet!

Yes, the welfare state is very effective at perpetuating the conditions necessary for poverty to thrive and thus provide plenty of these downtrodden soulful musicians.

Neat shape. It screams, go ahead and try to sue me Gibson! I like how it taunts Henry even further by making the font of the upper case G in the logo very Gibson like. I'll echo Uwe in his disdain for reliced guitars. Would make more sense if they offered it as an option and give a discount for non reliced versions. Was the extra 3/8" to the scale length really necessary either? It seems the builder must have compensated fret spacing and bridge placement to allow for proper intonation otherwise it wouldn't have sounded so perfectly pitched in the demo, so why not just go with a 34" scale? The only problem I have with the pick guard is that it needs some kind of decal.

That's tempting. I think I need to pass so I can save up for the new Kiss "vault" box set. For only $50,000 Gene will personally deliver it to you. This article calls him "The God of Thunder". Scott, have you got that trademarked yet?

That's disheartening news for our beloved brand. The Gibson company's legacy deserves much better standard of representation. I hope they can get their act together.

There's a tune-o-matic bridge that won't tilt thanks to the through body stringing. Shame they couldn't fit proper strings on it. I suppose this is basically a baritone G-3 similar to a Fender VI or the six string EB.

That body style is crying out for a version in TV yellow or TV white/ Limed Mahogany. I hope you don't because I'd be in tormenting amount of temptation. Any classic Gibson custom color finish would be cool too.

Don't listen to Uwe. He's probably just cranky from chasing ambulances. The Brooks basses look like mean machines to me and most other people I'm sure.

Ich danke Ihnen! It's a good thing the stache and bass looked good because I need some work. However, having a great girlfriend that loves to cook for you isn't the worst problem.  ;D

Some chrome or nickel covered probuckers in the limited edition 2018 Thunderbird might be a reasonable expectation.

Fun stuff and a good song too. The stock Arctec  pickup still in there?

Trower has still got it. Based on this performance he deserves as much accolades and acclaim as Clapton. Perhaps it's the fish face that keeps him from being as popular. I'm guessing Jack's EB is with his son now. Hope to see it grace a stage again in the future.

Good deal. Is the NR a sixties?

I guess Dinesh D'Souza's latest book, the big lie, got me thinking about it. If it's available in Germany it might be worth checking out for yourself. I haven't picked it up myself but I'm guessing it asserts things counter to the beliefs you would normally adhere to. Shana tova incidentally. Even if you're not observing a new year, I hope you have a sweet Autumn and rest of the year, hopefully full of new Gibson basses with any luck.

That's cool. I don't actually know too much about the AfD but figured it would get you going. I just noticed in the news they might have a chance due to voter apathy. Isn't it a little unfair to label conservatives as zombie nazis? I mean national socialists were still socialists after all.
