According to Upton O'Goode that is a custom 336 from Gibson! However, the most remarkable aspect of the photo is what is missing from Jack. Can you guess what it is? I hope that it is a permanent thang.

That's it. Let's hope he's quit. Jack's my age I had to drop it years ago because I was wheezin'. Sometimes It was painful to watch Jack playin' and puffin'. What wasn't going into his lungs was going into his eyes.

Charlesinator, unfortunately he hasn't. The club is all ages, which means it is non-smoking.
If it had been warmer, Jack would have taken 3 steps to his right and stepped out the door and stood on the sidewalk and smoked while Jimmy played. I know, I've seen him do it before. In fact, before the show jack said if his guitar cable was long enough he would sit in his car and have a Camel while they played. Most venues in Nashville are now non-smoking, so Jack has gotten used to it.

I didn't see him go outside during the break. I guess he probably lit one when he went back into the employees area

Man. I slowly ween myself off copying Jack by playing my G&L all the time, got a 336 back in 2006 and fell in love with it... And now he's got one! And it's the same colour as mine! Dammit! ;-) Oh well, they are seriously sweet guitars... What terrific taste he has!

Hey Jules, Jack told me the other day that he had seen a picture of yours. I had asked him who else that he knew that had a 336.

Mike can you tell us any more about the guitar itself? We can see it has a convienently located master volume ... for swells I presume. However, doesn't that make the other volumes redundant? Jack doesn't accidently hit it while strumming does he? Also any other modifications to the guitar that you know about? Next year I'm coming to Nashville I promise.

If I knew how to post on here I'd put up some of the photos of you from Ealing Blues!
How are you doing ?

Bill, Mike or Carole who were the other members of Jimmy and Jack band? Was it a Prisoners Of Love gig? I saw a pic of the drummer, but didn't recognize him Bill. I assume there was a bass ... keys?

Charlesinator, it was a Prisoners gig. Tommy Wells on drums and Micheal Joyce on bass, no keys. A few things I can tell you about this guitar.
The master volume lets Jack do swells and he is one of the best at this tehnique that I've been around. It doesn't get in his way, he's used to having it on his G&Ls and his Fenders. Not sure if it makes it redundant but it makes swells possible. Heck, he's so good at it that he can use it as a wah-wah effect. Jack has a surgeons ability with his hands.
The neck is a Fender length, or scale, and they copied the radius and thickness of Jack's favorite Tele (a G&L). There is no binding on the back of the guitar and the edges are rolled so as to not cut into his hip. It has been hollowed in a way to balance the weight. It is neither neck heavy or body heavy, it hangs level when you put it over your shoulder. Gibson hand picked the mahogany to find the lightest block to start with. It weighs less than 7 pounds and Jack says that the lighter mahogany gives better tone and more sustain. You could twirl it like a baton,
The paint scheme is not used on any current Gibson guitar. The paint scheme is a copy of Gibson mandolins from the 30s. The photos, while incredible (Thanks Bill), don't show it's true color. Lighting at 3rd and Lindsley is not that good. You, sir, will have to come to Nashville to see it for yourself! Lastly, Jack is still working on the set-up and he will probably change the tuners and work on the saddle. Hope this helps and I will buy lunch at the Kleerview when you come to see the guitar.

Thanks Mike. The drummer in the pix didn't look like "Boom Boom," but it has been some time since I've seen him. I love both Tommy Wells and Mike Joyce. One other question Mike ... Is Mike Joyce kin to Jay Joyce, the guy who produced Derek Trucks Songlines CD? Wow there is a lot more customization on the 336 than I realized. Can't wait to hear it. Also has Gibson given Jack any other guitars? I did see a clinic Jack did for Gibson on their website where he's playing a pretty LP and one of their amps as well.

I believe that's the same band that was at Chestnut Station for the Jam in 2004, wasn't it, Mike? Brent got to sit in that night on a song, played Jackie's guitar. Talked about how light it was, how light the string touch was. Tech stuff I didn't understand.

Btw, superb photos, Bill.

Yes Randy same band except probably better. Just like wine and yoself ... git betta with age. Hey folks Jack is a great player. There is no doubt about it, but the guy he replaced in the Prisoners Of Love was/is? every bit as good. A cat named Kenny Greenberg who could flat out smoke. I know he's produced some things. I just wonder if he still plays. He was a monster!

I believe the original band (that played on Rendezvous With the Blues) was Jimmy, Jack, Bill Stewart, and David Hood. The 4 that played in Nashville was I believe the same 4 that played Chestnut at the 2004 JFD. Jack and Jimmy have played every time I've seen the Prisoners, and Elizabeth on bass every time except the first time. Bill Stewart played drums one time, other than that it was Tommy.

I think.
