Tone Wood A Real Mother for Ya

A Real Mother for Ya

When I was a teenager in the 70's I was not very much interested in f hole style guitars. During that period Led Zeplin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd ruled the charts. 

A les Paul or a Stratocaster was what you should have those days. I still remember Johnny "Guitar" Watson. His clear bright cutting sound of his guitar solos, the groove of his music, it was something we had never heard before. 


Johnny made the Gibson ES335 definitly an acceptable instument to have for the kids of my age. The picture shows a 1968 ES330 and a 1971 ES335 with a Mesa Boogie mark1 amplifier. Once the tools to make the future vintage.
