Oh So Soul

Bootlegger Sam's, Minneapolis, 1980

The year everything changed.

Another piece added to the puzzle.

This piece didn’t fit either.

Everything fits perfectly. Beautiful picture. Thanks for sharing.

I have that guitar. The one on the far left. It's a nice model. The thin neck is elegant and easy to play.

That particular guitar is a 1959 355tdc. Worth as much as a nice car now.

Oh, well, not the same guitar! I thought it was a Harmony Rocket. I don't know my guitars very well. :)

Aw shucks! I thought I might have surprised you with its value (about 15-20 grand), the white guitar on the right is up over 10 grand as well. I think they paid about $500 each for them in the mid 70's.

I play a Les Paul, but have lusted after the ES and SG series.

Those were the two nicest guitars I've ever played.

Mine is still quite valuable because my dad gave it to me. He used to play it when I was a kid.
