Thank you. I am just going to miss it then .
But more time for the guitar shops
Yeah that is MASSIVE... lol.
I believe that is a James Trussart guitar.
The exhibit will be at the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame after it leaves the Met. So there's another opportunity to see it if you can't make it to the Met before it closes there.
I went a few weeks ago. Went straight to the exhibit as soon as the doors opened and didn't look at my watch until four hours later. Based on my experience I'd recommend going early because it was packed when we circled back through on the way out. We flew to NYC just to see this and it was worth all the expense and effort.
If it is then it was repainted recently as Page stated years ago a "friend" repainted it for him while he was out on tour one year.
You missed Micawber...it was there only in May.
I was there in June and loved every minute of it. Some fantastic guitars. Met a guy there who was talking about building guitars so referred him to this forum.
What happened to the reserved neck pickup?
Somebody mount it the "right" way??
I don't know who owned the dragon looking one with the flowered komono. Sorry.
Looks like there are hangers on the strap buttons.
Thanks for sharing this, wonderful exhibit .... it would be worth going to, if it weren't in disgusting NYC.
They had both Everly acoustics, along with the Gibson 'beater' they wrote songs on. Here's the beater:
And here are the stage guitars.
I think we're going to head back and see the exhibit one more time before it closes. We've gone twice already, but we have a couple of friends we want to take with us.
It's a James Trussart. James is out of LA and is famous for what Billy G. dubbed the 'Rust-O-Matic' guitars - Teles with steel bodies.
I've got the same Steelcaster. Morello's has the snakeskin etching, and the kill switch is a mod.
Trussart builds pretty amazing guitars.
Spoken like someone who hasn't been to New York lately.
Depeche Mode's Yamaha synth rig was pretty enormous, too. I didn't get a clear shot of it, but you can see it peeking out from behind Kate Pierson's Farfisa.
My favorite keyboard was Mick Jagger's dual Mellotron.
Thanks for sharing with us!!! That wouldn't happen to be Buddy Holly's Strat would it?
Apologies if someone already said it, but the Dragon Tele became a brown tele at some point and he played it in the 80's unless i'm mistaken
The dragon tele's neck was put on the botswana brown body. The body stayed in a state of disrepair until Jimmy Page was working with Fender to make the signature edition.
Awesome, yeah I would love to go back on a weekday when it was less crowded and just really dig in... lol. Such a great display.
Hmm, honestly I can't remember the story on the strat, sorry!
