Playing at one of my alltime favorite haunts.. Perks and Corks in Westerly with the great Blunt White (banker by day, bluesman by night) on harp.. Special guests include Bob "the Wizard of the Blues" McCarthy on 5 string bass and one string Diddley Bow.. Also, good friend Jeff Crewe will be coming by and performing on the incredible "instrument" pictured on the left which he calls the Blues Contraption. Not to be missed.. Pics from the night posted here soon. Rock on !!
I'm going to try and start blogging more. This will be my first introduction to one of the guitars I play at shows. I'll add a back story later and some pictures of my personal model. Here is a brief description from wiki about the guitar.
"Introduced in 1941 as the successor to the ES-100, the ES-125 was an entry-level archtop electric guitar. It had one P-90 single-coil pickup in the neck position, and a volume control and tone control. The pre-war model, discontinued in 1942, had a smaller 14.5" body. When reintroduced in 1946 it had the larger 16.25" wide body that the ES-150 had. The unbound rosewood fingerboard initially sported pearl trapezoid inlays; later, it would have dot inlays.
In the mid-1950's, the ES-125T was introduced, which was an entry-level thinline archtop electric guitar based on the original ES-125. It would later add options for double P-90 pickups and a sharp cutaway similar to the ES-175. Both the thinline and the regular models would be discontinued by the 1970s."
