I like the looks of that humbuckered archtop and old Gibson amp!

Guitar is an all original Epiphone Century serial number says 1951 but pickup is 1948 type New York single coil--has p90 type sound and is very strong and plays and gigs great

Amp is 1954 Les Paul Junior has some squeal probably needs tubes ( mostly sits on coffee table for looks )

Snare is all original round badge Gretsch " Dixieland " 3 ply circa 1950 . I Play it all the time and it records great

Hey Goldbrick!
What have you got rigged up there? Is that a 10x12" tom used as a bass drum?
Wouldn't it be just as easy to use a 16x18" bass drum, or would that be too loud?
You had a high hat in your video, but not here, mmmm…?
I envy you buskers. :wink:

That's an awesome little set up you got there.

Any chance we can hear it?

-edit-
Nevermind, just saw the other thread. Sounds real good!

I thought the only thing to add would be Bettie Page in a leopard outfit circa 1950's
