Default 1930 Gibson L-5

Haven't played this guitar in a while and wanted to try it on the new Shure MV88 mic, totally bone dry.

Just a little bit of my bottleneck composition, The Piping Plover Waltz, and when I can figure out how, I'll edit my wonderful spelling of 'waltx'.

Enjoy!



Howard

Nice one Howard, very clean. Very pretty.
looks like you had to drink a magnum of champagne to get that bottleneck!

Hey Andrew,
Good eye, although it was but an empty window display the owner gladly sold me. Piper Heidsick, actually.

Luckily I own a very good wet saw!

Best,
Howard
