I had ordered two kind of by accident and Joe had not received all the ones he needed to tour with from Gibson. He knew I had two. I sent it to him before he went in to the studio to record BOJH. There was some exchange of goods involved but it was entirley at random which guitar I had available to send. It happened to be #52 or it could of been #38 or for that matter any of the 300. It was #52 and has become his favorite LP.
That pretty awesome. So you used to own it. Does it play as good as it sounds. Thats pretty cool that Joe wanted to buy you're guitar though.
I am not exactly a player although I can strum a few chords. I never even played it. It was delivered to me and since I had already unboxed #38 I sent it to Joe without even unboxing it. He needed it in the studio when he got there. He had never even played it. What is cool is it isn't a guitar that was hand picked or culled through it was completely at random that #52 became his Pearly Gates.
