    No ! Wrong ! That's Jimi Page wearing a "Eric Clapton is god" mask !!!

    Of course, it's Eric... Everybody knows Jimi never had short hair since his birth. Btw, few pix of my previous post are also deep fake.

    Please, tell him to put gently this guitar on the floor, this guitar doesn't deserve him.
    then why not consider he should play the piano...?

    I can see him with a big hollowbody Gretsch of some sort, but that pic with the Billy Bo knocked me outta my chair!;)

    Yeah, Billy Bo's seem more... garage or hard rock-y. I know the great garage rock legend Billy Childish uses one among his other millions of cool old guitars:

    Don`t underestimate the man.
    He is incredibly good at what he does.
    His other project besides Rammstein, Emigrate, is a multi-national band that produces some cool music, too.

    Ok loud, plz educate me with some posts.
    What I heard from Rammstein was tasting close to a big turd to me tastes, but I'm ok to move my mind to some peaceful territories.

    If we're going to be harping on the music we don't like all thread, I'm going to really step on some toes when I discuss my dislikes. :D

    Mind if we keep it away from that, though? It tends to get a bit boring for those on the outside watching people slug it out.

    upload_2020-5-24_22-40-18.jpeg The greatest rhythm player of the Big Band era, Freddie Green. He used to play a Stromberg, which is a holy grail guitar for rhythm players, but he switched to a Gretsch when he felt that the Stromberg was too valuable to risk traveling with.

    I think I recall that his strings were about a quarter inch above the fingerboard.
