Wish I could say they were Gibsons, but they are both well-made copies.

The first one a Santander ES-335 model, which I bought almost brand new a few years ago and I have to say it plays better than any Epiphone I've laid my hands on. Really nice sounding and a comfortable neck.

The second is a 1969 Conrad, ES-175 model which I found on Ebay. Very nice patina and sounds good as well although the output is slightly lower.

Cool man, I think the coppies can be as good or better than there Gibson counterparts. Especially newer poorly made Gibsons. I own a Epi Les Paul Custom and with new pickups/nut/electronics it can hold its ground with pretty much most Gibson Standards/Studio's.

Yeah, I think so too. Just because it's a no-brand instrument doesn't mean the quality control is disregarded or anything. Epi for instance is well-known and widely used and has been for a long time, and that for a reason.

I know what ya mean, dude. I mean, hell, I actually wear a vest, dress shirt, and pants when I play live. Depending on the venue, I ditch the vest and actually wear a blazer

It adds a bit of charm and swagger to it, and it just looks cool as hell, to me at least. I never liked the whole idea of looking like you just rolled out of bed. Nor do I like the air-brushed Aquanet look.

So, I'm guessing that picture was taken prior to the decision to grow the mustache?

And by God, do not forget to grow out your hair! This world needs more hair. I think all the wars would end if everyone grew out their hair.
