Thread: Twilight Zone????????????????

  1. #21
    Okay, get this. Back in the forties, my very late father illustrated a book.

    I told my wife about it, so to surprise me for my birthday, she Googled around, found a copy, bought it, gift wrapped it, and gave it to me on the big day.

    I unwrapped it, and cool, wow, a copy of my dad's book, thank you honey! Then I opened it and an old note fell out - a note my dad had written. It wasn't just a copy. It was his copy.

    The guitar that says Floyd Burney on the back is a '50s Gibson ES 295 with Klusons, white P90 pickups, speed knobs and a 295 tailpiece. The guitar is an 'all gold' model, too. Pretty rare bird!

    Thanks Harry!
    Did some searching but could only find an indistinct frontal shot of it, enough to be satisfied it wasn't a Guild.

    It's not pre-ordained, either, though.
    Every decision and action you and everybody on the planet makes and takes changes the future continuously.

    Oh, the colors......I'm freaking out...




    Bonnie Beecher btw, the girl who wrote the song (in the show), went on to marry Hugh Romney, better known as Wavy Gravy.
    Yep.
    Life's a genuine Twilight Zone alright.

    Look at this vid, around 1:20-30 seconds. You can see the very distinct 295 tailpiece. I'm having second thoughts about the knobs, though. They may be 'bonnet' knobs!

    He carries his guitar like an ax, where did that come from?
