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.

Gary Clark Jr. would be a great get for Sammy . This actually could be a fun tour with 3 serious guitar slingers and after each one does there "set" they could all have an all star Jam at the end of the show with maybe some surprise guests . This would be the ultimate guitar nerds show to hear and see the 6 string goodies they would bring along ( mostly Joe , as he has the serious collection ! ) John Mayer can supply the ladies to round out the evening . Oh and maybe John Mayer can get his friend to open the shows with some comedy - Dave Chappell ! Now you got some entertainment !

Joe's Instagram page is fun, what other guitar based Instagram page can you recommend?

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.
way way way back the jazzers considered the large fancy epiphone archtops to be the best, gibson really had a run for their money trying to compete. of course the old as dirt jazzers that told me this are all gone i,m sure by now. along with the knowledge of how fine epiphones used to be

This Instagram page is amazing. This guy has a big treasure there, I am impressed with his collection. Lately, I’ve thinking of acquiring a new instrument to my collection. So far, I have two, but they are quite old, so I decided to get something new. Also, I’ve been getting more and more of social platforms, such as Instagram. Of course, it’s nice to see pages like these, that promote something you’re passionate about. But, overall, I just decided I’m losing to much time. So, I looked up how to deactivate instagram, because for some reason I can’t do it from my phone. Apparently, you need to access the page via PC.
