There’s more vintage gear on Joe B Instagram than in some Western nations

If anyone hasn’t it checked it out, here’s the link https://www.instagram.com/joebonamassa/?hl=en

Man this guy has some incredible gear, a virtual treasure trove of the choicest of choice vintage amps, vintage guitars. Some great licks and his tongue and cheek comments are amusing too.

I think Joe B and John Mayer should go on tour together, part music, part comedy, like a revised version of the rat pack. Joe could be the almagamation of Frank and Bishop, JM could be Dino and Lawford . They just need to find a Sammy, I might recommend Kevin Hart for overall proportions but i don’t know if he plays an instrument.

Anyway, it’s a great instagram feed, but be careful, if you are one of the GAS afflicted, this guy can make even an Epiphone look good.

Can you imagine the breathtaking amount of vintage gear as a collective of all members of this forum? Should be close to Joe's LOL. Just kidding, I think it's extremely cool how Joe shares his collection with the world and educates us young and old daily with his live, recorded and internet presence.

Lol, that’s your take away. Really? When did I say there was something wrong with Epiphones?

I wanted to post something positve about the talented Mr. Bonamassa’s instagram feed because I thought it might be of interest to folks who haven’t really checked it out, as it's filled with highly desirable, lust worthy gear.

I think you’re smart enough to understand the difference between budget gear and lust worthy gear. A Ferrari Spider is a lot more lust worthy than a Mazda Miata. That’s just the way it is. It doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with the Miata. And when a highly skilled driver puts a Miata through its paces and reveals how good a budget sports car can be, a positive inference should be made not a negative one. So maybe you should put your chip down, view the post in its proper context, and think about what your saying before replying.

I think they’re making sure to remind everyone that there was an era of Epiphone guitars that is equally if not more lustworthy in some cases.

E.g Blonde 64’ Casino’s are infinitely more lustworthy than their Gibson counterparts.

I've never seen a 60's Casino in blonde. :hmm
Got a photo?

I had the delight and privilege to play this one- and boy is it a dream.

If you actually looked through Joe Bonomassa’s intagram you’d see him play some of his modern signature Epiphones. Despite their budget status, he squeezed some really good tones out of them. Not sure what any of this has to do with a 64 Epiphone.

I was going to say that I think Gibson should do even more with Joe Bomnamassa to put a little luster on the Epiphone line, but you know what, forget I mentioned it.

There are FIVE Epiphone Casino models(not counting the coupe). Yes that is right: FIVE!

There is a regular Casino, Elitist, Lennon and a Gary Clark Jr. They are made in Japan, Korea and China.
Prices vary from $600 to $2200. With and without Bigsbys

I like everything related to vintage, especially when it comes to guitars.Thanks for sharing. Only I think that such a cool page should have more followers. Because these vintage guitars are worthy of being seen by a lot of people. To do this, you need to use the instagram tools so that your posts get a lot of views. And I can say that if you use instagram hashtags correctly, a lot of vintage fans will follow this page. I tried this for my page and was surprised by such a quick effect and the number of followers who came to me as soon as I changed the hashtags of my publications.

His Blues acoustic shows are incredibly awesome! But i've noticed that he has almost 1million followers but few likes and views and it's so bad cause he deserves much more than that. I could help him suggesting a website that would increase his statistics and popularity and he would get more likes and views on instagram. This website helped me once a lot! I have an acc on instagram where i post the stuff i sell like guitar strings, capo,picks and other tools. So when i just started i didn't have many likes or followers and i was really upset. So i decided to buy instagram likes to increase my sales you know. And it really worked, i had more and more followers and likes every day.:salude:hank:yah
