Guitar shopping this week in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada - a suburb of Toronto and Canada’s 6th largest city (by population…). These goodies were found at the Mississauga Long & McQuade store:
Four fabulous Firebirds
1975 P-Bass (reasonably priced at ~$1700 CAD), but weighs at least 10 lbs!
1978 P-Bass close up
I was in Windsor, Ontario (across the River from Detroit Michigan) last week and this old steam locomotive was so awesome!
Custom Shop ES-Les Paul (see the f-holes!)
Gold sparkle PRS Starla - on of two ordered for Donna Grantis, who used to teach guitar at this locations. She took the one with the black pickguard and left this one behind. See below for a taste of Donna’s playing.
One of the last new “Select” Teles we are going to see - they have been discontinued.
I love this Les Paul with the thickness of an SG!
Still surprisingly heavy though considering how thin it is!
Donna is on the left (NOT playing a gold sparkle Starla though…)
“No one can play like this band,” says Prince. People are going to try, but they won’t be able to.“…recording one of his rawest, heaviest albums. "All played live, no punch-ins,” Prince says. “You do it til you get the take you like.”
