    That's the right stuff !!!! Both are very fine but Yoshiaki Miyanoue is INCREDIBLE, he's the closest thing to Wes I've yet seen (beautiful old L-5, too). Thanks, Kawa, great tunes -

    Thank YOU, Kawa, you have provided the members of the forum with examples of superb music. Mister Miyanoue makes me think of what "Wes" would sound like today, had he lived.

    Kawa, I have a question: do most prominent Japanese jazz guitarists play American archtop guitars? ( Do some of the very good Japanese jazz guitarists play Korean-made or Chinese-made guitars?)

    I don't mean to place you in a controversial position; most of the videos that you provide to us depict very skillful guitarists playing VERY EXPENSIVE Gibson guitars. I'd just like to know if that is common.

    Thank you - see you

    Thanks, Kawa. Hoping to see and hear more of the fine Japanese guitarists you recommend.

    Here (U.S.) there are many interpretations of "jazz", and that is appropriate - the intent is spontaneous improvisation on a theme supported by predictable chord progressions. (Sometimes not, an example is Ornette Coleman - tenor saxophone - who could make his way through any random combination of chords, with absolute brilliance!).

    My point is that I appreciate the artists that you post because they play and represent the period of jazz that I most love (1948 to 1968 approximately).

    It's coincidental that you also like that type of jazz, my friend. Thank you again -

    Mister Takeda, on this tune, is playing a Japanese guitar that is very interesting: shape similar to L-5, neck and tailpiece similar to L-4. Kawa, can you identify the manufacturer and the model?



    I think this is the same guitar:

    I was actually wondering if they were U.S. manufactured Gibsons or Japanese manufacturered guitars and I'm not suggesting that there might be a difference in quality. We all know that Japanese products are manufactured to the highest standards!

    The headstock emblems seem to be slightly different than normal. (Maybe it's because I don't have good vision)

    Thanks Kawa -

    Hi Kawa,

    I looked at the additional information that you posted, very beautiful guitars.

    I always envy people, like you, that can read, write and speak different languages. I can't read or speak Japanese but looking at the beautiful photographs, I got the impression that Mister Myanoue's guitar was custom-made for him, perhaps by a master luthier, rather than a corporation?

    The guitar looks identical to the Gibson L-5 except for certain custom features. The headstock has Mister Myanoue's name on it, that's a very nice touch, it must make him feel very proud to play such a guitar!

    I'm wondering if a luthier crafted this instrument at Mister Myanoue's specifications, based on the L-5, but that it wasn't made by Gibson? Can you tell me if that is correct?

    Thanks for your advice,
    Randy

    It's a nice looking amplifier with a lot of power in a small package. I've never seen one but I live in an isolated part of the country.

    Still reading your posts about Mr. Miyanoue and his students with interest. Your comment about the "4 core" guitar cable makes me curious. Is the intent to achieve a higher impedance than standard cables?

    thanks,
    Randy

    Hi randyc,Peterson P100GMkⅡis a nice,compact and realy good sound.
    I using on stage and tested many times in my house for compair with "Twin reverb" and "Vibrolux Reverb" and Polytone minibruteⅡ and etc.
    Hearing alone sound is good but at compair sound is something less.
    As you know, It's a normal things.
    BTW, currently "The Club" is the next one,if good match to jazz tone.
    (Now on sale it in japan since last month faster than the other countrys)
    I'm waiting your test report.
    About "4 cores shield",it's just a idea of his friend.
    don't needs, enough one core like Belden 9778.
    I always testing by switching systems(Com In, Out A,Out B, In A, In B,Com Out, by one "Cariing" Footswitch and six "Switch Craft" jacks)for compairison or tone adj,cable,guitar prossesor,speakers,amps,gettimg same tones or volumes etc.

    See you.

    Thanks, Kawa, for the information. Do you think that the "Peterson" is equal to the Fender "Twin"?

    Many people are interested in the "Club" amplifier too. The "Club" isn't available in the U.S. so your evaluation (and your friends' evaluations) would be interesting.

    Thank you randyc,These are important for sound pursuit,not at memorize image,in quickly same phrase or same chord or same positions single note etc.
    Also use to split check for amp blocks sound and speakers sound(include differrence or condition of twin spkrs each) and each other for reference,

    I agree, my ears can't make good sound comparisons after minutes have passed. Different sounds should be compared within 30 seconds, in my opinion.

    When I hear "Li'l Darlin", it's forever associated in my mind with "Satin Doll" and "Girl Talk". You post beautiful music and your video accompaniments are always entertaining. We're lucky that you're a member! Perhaps some day we'll have the pleasure of seeing/hearing you perform - especially with a big band. That would be great
