This has to be one of the best versions of this well known tune!

And here is comedian Rob Paravonian’s revenge on the tune :-)

I came across an article on how Gibson makes their custom guitars – it’s amazing that so much is still hand done by professional luthiers and where machines are used, still using machines that were converted from their original steam power!

Interestingly the wood shop is kept to 45 percent humidity by roof-mounted misters to keep the wood at the right humidity.

Every aspect of this operation reinforces the quality of the Gibson instruments.

Now this is some awesome guitar – from a concert in Holland!

Toone Guitars has a great website – go check it out. Well laid out with really great photos of really great looking guitars.

And I like the fact that Rick Toone the luthier

…won’t denigrate assembly lines – they build instruments for the masses. I don’t. This is something very different

And it is :-)

Not that I play guitar… yet!

Cheers
Jerry
