[QUOTE]Brian May still uses the guitar he and his Father built when he was a kid - 100 year old fireplace mantle, parts of a motorcycle and some old mother of pearl buttons for the neck..."the Red Special".
Right. It was the second guitar of the slide show.
So Clapton once had 107 guitars. Nobody needs that many. Nobody needs half that number. Not Clapton, not Jeff Beck.
My personal favorite didn't make the cut. It was that aqua blue one, with the tag still on it, that Nigel Tufnel kept in his guitar room. But that's okay, we're not supposed to look at it. We're not even supposed to point at it, so I imagine he'd completely lose it if someone created a hyperlink to it.
That's like Angus Young having 107 when he never changes what he uses. Makes no sense.
Hi Harvey. It makes total sense to me. If Angus Young has a specific guitar that makes exactly the right sound he wants for his band....surely that doesn't mean he can't have other gits at home he plays for pleasure....or maybe he just loves music and guitars?
I have lots of friends that work daily to feed their family - as most of us do - that have 5-10-15 guitars, even more. One of my favourite 2-3 guitarists in the world is an unknown (to most) musician in Japan (comically, his wife's real name is Yoko Ono).
I've posted this before; he bought a Vox Starstream a few years ago and was so excited he posted a video showing off its effects. Dig: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWC1uzg-Yr0
I bet Angus Young will appreciate it...time will tell. ;-)))
