Roger Waters - Ric Mandolin

Postby (byu) » Sat Jun 09, 2012 10:40 am

Went to see Roger Waters perform The Wall at Wrigley Field here in Chicago last night. One of his guitarists is G.E. Smith of Saturday Night Live fame. For the last song the band came out to the front of the stage and there was G.E playing a Jetglo 5002. Wonder of wonders.

Definitely!
I have NO idea what to do with those skinny stringed things... I'm just a bass player...

I'd always thought that G.E. Smith made for a good "gangster" guitar player due to his facial features. Remember the 80's??

Have a look at GE's gear including the Rickenbacker 5002 below.

Life, as with music, often requires one to let go of the melody and listen to the rhythm

One of the last ones they made... and two digits away from one we have in the register. Neat. I still like my sea green and white ones better though :lol: 8)
