    You okay, Tim...?

    I have been asked that question many times over the years.  :rolleyes:

    Not sure if it is urban legend or fact, but several guitar forums have inquired about Gibson's 'new guitar smell'.  The consensus is that Gibson sprays a pleasant-smelling scent in the new guitar cases (not the guitars).  The guitars pick up the aroma while in the case.

    Celestion Vintage 30  Power-Handling: 120 Watts  8 ohms


    The back is ported and has grill screens   . The cat on the chair is Doug Sewel the amp designer




    Excellent demo!  I love the way Grissom verbally explains how the amp was developed, plays a killer riff, then follows up on what we just heard it do.  Having Sewel there, offering his technical input discussing the painstaking trial and error steps, was icing on the cake.

    I did not take picture the former owner did but yes might be a bit dicey on the chair. I have owned 2 Johnny Smith Gibsons and played many, many others, including Johnny's personal one in 1979 on a trip. This Heritage easily sound much better acoustically and full even sound although has the typical Johnny Smith voiced pronounced higher treble sound. 


    Awesome looking Heritage JS.  I'm not surprised it sounds better than some Gibson JS models.  Johnnie Smith moved away from Gibson due to his dissatisfaction with them.  Not sure if it was due to lagging build quality, specs or tone.  But based on what I've read, Mr. Smith worked closely with the Heritage owner/builders to get it right.

    Play that beauty in good health, and welcome to the HOC.
