    This is just awesome. I'm just giddy with excitement about this. You got to play a guitar used by WES MONTGOMERY. I have a few books from my Doktor Vater's library, with his annotations in them, and that thrills me. This... this is a whole other thing.

    It also reminds me how sad it is that we can't track down Joe Pass's 1960's ES175.

    That can be your next project!

    How cool!

    Happy for you that you got to play such an iconic instrument. Downside is: you're spoiled forever...

    Funny how grain and tortoise PG's are like fingerprints. There's absolutely no doubt that those gits are one and the same.

    The "heart" guitar was also damaged by fire/smoke/water, and later restored by Gibson. Maybe both guitars were together?

    PS - Here's another one:

    I also thought of that other one that was damaged ! I thought 'Damn, that's just a lot of bad luck to two different (significant) guitars, and the folks who owned them at the time."

    By the way, with help of a French guitarist who sent me an article on this particular guitar, the mystery has been solved completely!

    I'll have to write a new Blog entry for the final truth on this guitar. Coming up.
