"My buddy Matt O'Ree, who played in Bon Jovi's touring band with Phil X, and who won Guitar Center's King of the Blues competition years ago, is a long time Trainwreck player. He also has this gear and lesson-oriented video series on YT. Anyway, he is putting together a series of videos to showcase some current Trainwrecks built by John Mark, and some original amps built by Ken Fischer, including Ken's personal one that he got on-loan from Ken's family. He brought in some modern LPs, vintage strats, to show a variety of combinations. I also let him borrow an old guitar of mine.
Here is his first video in the series, which has him playing my guitar through his personal Trainwreck.
If you want to just jump right to the playing, skip to 6:35 and 11:13.
Personally, I had never heard a Trainwreck in person until I showed up at the studio the day this was recorded. All of the amps sounded unlike anything I had heard before. Ridiculously touch sensitive, and a level of brightness that I couldn't believe. You can so much presence in the video that I'd swear it was a different guitar. Brightest amps I've ever heard. Strangely enough, the sound fits real well with his band. Cuts right through when playing live. I think that cab/speaker combo he's using contributes alot, as later in the day, we tried an old Marshall cab and it was much darker. Very cool amps.
There's a bunch more videos coming in the upcoming weeks. I'll share any that have a vintage LP in them."
watching Joe play the les paul sitting down puts in a nut shell why I don't have one. when ever I play one sitting the fat ass of it puts it at that funny angle and it kinks my back and neck ... I play 90% sitting so they're not for me

Nooooooo, why ?! I guess if it was something that the owner was brave enough to do and had no intentions to sell it, then fair enough. But that's not the case, so thanks for butchering a piece of history just to chase some $$$
"1954 Gibson Les Paul Junior/”Burst” Conversion.
This guitar started its life as a 1954 Les Paul Junior and has been meticulously converted to 1960 Les Paul Standard specs. A new top was made from vintage Eastern Maple and added to the existing Mahogany body along with the addition of binding and trapezoid inlays added to the neck. The neck carve was modeled after a 1960 Les Paul and features a fast, slim profile. Many vintage parts were sourced including 1959 Grover tuners, 1959 wiring harness and switch, 1960 knobs, an era correct bridge and tailpiece, and real PAF pickups. Accurate vintage repro plastic and pickup covers. PLEK’d by Mike Lull for low action and incredible playability. This guitar has the real Burst feel and tone for a fraction of the price! Includes molded hardshell case.
