  • OLD SKOOL guitar playing in the 50s!!!

    a fan/friend of mine who comes to gigs kept telling me about his dads old guitar, yada yada yada and then i finally went to see it.

    come to find out, his dad played in the miltary jazz band in the early 50s, and with Stan Keating jazz band later!

    check out these photos!



    that's old school!

    scene from wwII movie???





    this pic is with a brand new 1956 Les Paul GOLDTOP -- it got stolen from him a few years later:



    then he bought this in 1972, it's a 1970 Gibson ES-150D in mint condition with OHSC!



    and a 1965 Ampeg Reverborocket with original tubes AND original NOS tubes as spares from the 60s:



    dude!

    long, strong, and down to get the friction on......

    DANG! That finish is amazing. A shame the goldtop got stolen, though.

      yeah...i have seen dozens of vintage gibsons in that color from the early 70s, but the way THAT one has faded to a lighter color and the fading is very even and nice.......it's one of the best looking ones i have ever seen, maybe THE best. and it's damn near MINT!

                ALWAYS!

                two of those dudes in the miltary band went on to be famous -- one played with Brubeck, and one played with Lawrence Welk for many years. Tony Mingoia, the guitarist, played with Stan Keating, then got a job and only played at home for the rest of his life, didn't want to be in the music biz!

                      I'd love that National amp he was playing through.

                      Great pics.

                            yes, usually -- it's a pretty good gig to be in one of the military's "show" bands that do top 40, rock, and jazz.....you should go for it!

                            the ES-175 he is playing in some of the photos up there is awesome -- and the unit he played for wanted to keep it, so he sold it to the unit when he left....that's when be bought the brand new 1956 Les Paul goldtop -- he is fully aware that guitar would be worth about $30 grand right now - it's too bad it got stolen, because he would probably still have it NOW!
