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

Ricktoberfest® II - 10/20/12

Postby (8mileshigher) » Mon Oct 22, 2012 2:20 pm

Thanks for posting those first pictures, Joey & Diane. Looking forward to seeing the next batches of pics as they materialize.

I didn't realize at the time, that we had that little armada of twelve-string janglers going at the same time, playing together on several tunes. 8) Pretty cool. Looks like the JG V64-12, Dale's FG 360-12, the JG 660-12 and Gary's FG Roger McGuinn Limited Edition.

For sure I know that David O is now heavily RASing after a 660-12, after giving mine a test-drive at the Ricktoberfest ® ! :)

Yeah ! He is a great addition and besides being a good guitarist, he covered some of those higher-range "Day Tripper" vocals with ease, too !!!! :) 8) Very talented performer!

Nice! 8)

I do love that ebony fingerboard and large dots on John's Cii.

I like Jason's acoustic. Looks like a 700 Shatsa and since it has a PG it must have come off the PW (JJ) Assembly Line. Very nice. :D

Wonderful collection of RICs there.

Obviously a good time with a rockin' bunch of musicians.

Next CD will be "RRF, the Live Sessions".

This is not a PW instrument. It has a custom pickguard that we made for Jason that has half of the soundhole covered and sits only a few millimeters below the strings. He tends to get under the strings and breaks them like crazy; with this pickguard, string breakage is rare as he has no room to get under the strings.

It also has his signature on it. It was all laser engraved from the rear and painted so that it stays looking pretty good under the incredible use he gives this guitar. As it happens, I have a spare here in the studio to share.
