    Well, sort of ...

    A lofi clip on my 1952 ES 350 through my Katana.

    It's Miss Jones but judging from what I hear it is "Moaning." I should stick to direct recording.

    Smoking fast chord changes. Tal would be proud.

    Thanks. It's my own arrangement. I did steal some ideas though. My chord melodies change all the time. They are a work in progress. Somehow I like Tal's concept of playing chord melodies a lot.

    That guitar is a dream come true. For many years I have been looking and lusting for 350s but over here they are incredibly rare and very expensive. I never thought I would actually ever own one. Let alone a blonde .... The guitar is in great condition but needs some maintenance but I cannot bring myself yet to leave her with the guitar tech.

    Recording sounds great to me.

    But with good playing like that, tone doesn't matter as much.

    Very clean, no slurring. As for taking ideas from others, even the masters heard what they play somewhere and sometime in there lives. And that becomes the template for their style. We all do it. Just not as good as you..

    Thanks for listening Joe!

    Yes, you are describing the principle of imitation-assimilation-innovation ... That's how it works.

    Homerun! Out of the park.

    The guitar is to die for.

    A ton of cash for that great guitar but worth every penny. I remember paying $7.5K for my blonde L5. A bitter pill to swallow but the sticker shock quickly faded. Awesome axe and now in the right hands.
    Bravo Dick !

    Thanks so much Vinny. Yeah, I never paid as much for a guitar as I did for the 350 (think L5 price realm) but it so special. It's like owning and playing a piece of jazz guitar history. Ever since I heard Tal's 50s recordings I wanted one ... And it DOES have that 50s bop vibe in spades.

    The ES 300 that I own too is for sale now. It sounds equally great but one 17" vintage bopper is enough.

    Nice playing and, no surprise, a very nice guitar. What is a surprise, is how well it sounds through a very inexpensive amp. It makes me wonder if we need to rethink expensive specialty amps.

    Yes, the amp is not a quality amp. But the guitar is very good though.

    Maybe you'd be interested in what the guitar sounds like being recorded directly (pre-amp) only. See vid below.
