Goldendragon, don't you think that's could be a good thing? Playing them in the studio but also preserving them for future generations is, to me, the best way to go. Practice on something else and take out the relic when you're ready to record its sound.


see the market suckes tooo many pp buying these guitars to hang on the wall! they wanted to be played befor the music in them fades away!!!



The King of Rockabilly deserves better. Rockaeology at http://bit.ly/ftjcUX has the story of how Perkins wrote “Blue Suede Shoes.” The germ of the idea was from Johnny Cash. But it was during a break at a performance that Perkins overheard an exchange between two dancing teens that set the song into motion. Also told is the tale of how and why “Go, cat, go” was suggested to Perkins–by Sun Records producer Sam Phillips.
