That is one UGLY pickguard!  Mine has an original P90 pickup.

Comment by FloridaGull 5 hours ago

Looks pretty much like the 1963 pictured below - with the obvious exception of the UGLY mass of black plastic that serves as the pickguard on the '63... ;-

Here's my Gibson ES125T.  Much prettier than the 120T.  I replaced the tuners 30 years ago and must have thrown out the old ones at some point.  DOOOHH!!!  Didn't know any better then.  The tailpiece looks to be original but there is an extra set of holes.  Everything else is original.

Dave - FWIW, Wolfe Guitars has a 1963 Gibson ES120T - http://www.gbase.com/gear/gibson-es120t-1963-sunburst -

Is this similar to your 1962 Gibson ES125T?

This has been a cool summer in the northeast.  Daily highs have been upper 70's/low 80's with most days having a reasonable dew point.  I have a dehumidifier downstairs with the guitars and I've only had to run it 5 or 6 days.

I have a 1962 Gibson ES125T that I traded a moped for (mid 80's), from a friend of my father, who was the original owner that played it in a band in the 60's.  I forget what he had but it was some kind of nerve degenerative disease and he died a couple of years later.  I haven't used it in years, considering selling it.

what i wouldn't give for 51 degrees...its  83 with a dew point of 69!! YUUUCK. Thank goodness for AC or none of my guitars would be happy or tuned.

 I too watched a Friend die of ALS some years ago. His name was Phil Simmons(a professor at Lake Forrest College), also a musician and all 'round Great Soul. He wrote the book well after his diagnosis. We should all be so fortunate to pass with the grace and dignity he exuded.

  I'm still not very comfortable playing guitar in front of people..go figger..

The ice bucket challenge has been a fantastic success.  From what I hear, they raised 8 or 9 million more than last year and more than expected.  Dunno what that current total would be at now.

As far as being "exposed" goes, I think whenever any of us plays in front of any kind of crowd, be it big or small, or even posting vids we are um, "leaving ourselves out there" so to speak for all to see. We are out there with almost all our flaws plainly visible and audible.  It takes some courage, but it's a part of "living" life that I would never trade away.  8-)

Comment by FloridaGull yesterday

We, unfortunately, mostly have fumes related to - how to put this delicately? - excrement...hence, the "fume hood"... ;-)

We do, however, get routine ice bags in for testing - so we could easily do the challenge...unfortunately, I knew 2 people with ALS, so my awareness is high - one lasted 9 years!
