Hey all,

Just last week a guy wanted my 11 R9 for a TH58. Couldn't say no.

No pictures for now but I hope the video finds you well.

Enjoy and cheers!

Thanks Stow :) Means a lot.

The True Historic feels more different than it does sound different- but with a marshall on 10 and a fet driver of some sort negates the audible differences I guess.

I'm happy with the choice and I grab it everyday unlike the previous R9...funny things guitars.

I hate you!

If you broke 3 fingers on your left you would still play better than me!

AWESOME STUFF BRUV!

But just remember this: 'Even if you keep practicing you will never play like I do...'

Thank God...

Oh ren, my gf tells me I need to play less notes- she would surely agree with you :p :laugh2:

You're probably familiar with the 15 TH58s as well- how do you find them?

I briefly held a burst when I was 15- larkstreet NJ (in seoul, korea now)

This is awfully reminiscent of that one in both feel look and sound.

I love your playing ,and your tone . I believe that you can never play enough notes esp. when you play so beautiful . A relative of mine is always saying guitarist play too many notes and he likes to hear the singers more which I want to hear more extended solos as I grew up in the era of Clapton/Cream and I can't get enough notes when they are played so well and a guitar can sing much better than a vocalist .

Ah thanks Froggie. It's always about the tone isn't it? :)

Good stuff, brother... As usual... :salude

Thank you so much- I've been meaning to say, I love your guitar. It's nice to have found the one. It becomes more than an instrument in some ways.

I wish I could say I grew up in that era too but alas what I know is only retrospective.

More notes, less notes, it's all about texture- making the notes sing. Otherwise we'd just do everything on macbooks and keyboards. I love the guitar for it's tactile feel and the little inflections that I can wring out of it.

OTOH, I noticed you were having troubles recently with a guitar- did that get solved?

I think I may give up playing after watching your video. Great playing and equally great tone!

I was (and am) VERY impressed with the TH beasts.
Had I the coin in 15 my whole collection would have had a TH in every spot as well as the ones I have.
I think they were by far the best thing Gibson put out.
I had a guy show me a TH8 he thought was a clinker.
In about 2 minutes with a screwdriver it FRIGGIN' SUNG.
My wife put the skids on TH AND HS's though.
I did snare a TH6.
The TH(and by substitution HS) P90 versions they had out at that time were maybe even better...

Thank God I never got my hands on a Brazilian.

Enjoy the pics guys. Have to get it refretted with larger wire soon. The TH has jescar 45100 milled down too low and I've already played it a lot that it's even more low and my fingers are dragging across the wood more than I'd like.

Well it sure isn’t slowing you down any! You sir are an amazing player.
