The Adventures of Robert & Rosalind - Rise, O Lord!
Rosalind and Robert summon The Lamb.
I badly need to save some cash to buy one of those… I love especially the pattern and wood grain of those maple tops. Absolutly gorgeous and quite possibly one of the only Gibsons I could afford. But i’m already saving cash for a new computer. What a hard choice… :(
Sometimes you go guitar shopping and you think to yourself “god help me, but if I see one more Les Paul or Stratocaster I am going to go postal, right here and right now!”
And then other times, you go guitar shopping and you see a bunch of things that you have never seen before and you have literally NO IDEA what the heck they are?!? Case(s) in point:
- This ES-335 is hollow…but it has no F holes (or G holes or H holes for that matter…). Also…notice the single, uncovered pickup, trapeze tailpiece, black hardware, and lack of any binding on the body or neck! What the heck is this thing?!?
- Also, check out the Epiphone behind it! Never seen one of these before either! The cutaways look like a Gretsch. Very pretty, but I still don’t know what the heck it is!
- A solid body ES-335? Wha?!?
Photo 3 and 4:
- A Les Paul Studio right? No big deal. That’s an easy one. Wait…it’s about half the thickness of any Les Paul I have ever seen (including Juniors and Specials!). WTF is it?!?
- OK, this one isn’t too weird…it’s an “LPJ”, one of the “Year of Les Paul celebrations” according to Gibson. These are supposed to be quite inexpensive (for a Gibson!), but I didn’t look at the price tag because, frankly I was still freaking out after that super thin Les Paul Studio in the previous photo! ;)
