Johnny Starbuck's work station courtesy of WeSellGuitars

since Rich/WeSellGuitars has kindly said we could repost his photos here ...
this one intrigues me:

the list of instruments is one bit i'm curious about - which one is Sonny? :E

the other lists ... [peering hard, with apologies for prying, Johnny Starbuck!]:
the 0021 would be an acoustic i reckon; which ones are Dwight & Gloria?

Yep, it's Johnny Starbuck's workstation. The list of guitars that are up for re-stringing.

Gloria is obviously a 50's Tele and I'm guessing here, but my money's on Dwight being d'white ES-345.

Here's Johnny changing the strings.

How do you get the images to show up larger? I tried 8 times in the last post!

Sonny is Keith's '67 Sunburst Tele he uses for 'You Can't Always Get' and 'Tumblin' Dice'

So Pierre de Beauport serves both - Keith and Ron, guitar-wise?

I like the 19" Tone Works guitar tuner - same as mine winking smiley and the old Champ - but why?
why does he have to use those JET picks?

>>apologies for prying, Pierre!<<

prying - I had to look that up - but beeing nosy on a fan website, is like carrying owls to Athens or like the english say - coals to Newcastle...

anyway, I can't see Pierre answering on this board (but I'd love to read it (go man - go. give the true fans some insights))...

It's good to have WeSellGuitars joining us - yep!

ah okay thanks WeSellGuitars - i've fixed the thread title to reflect whose workplace it is -
now that you mention it it's fairly obvious, isn't it :E

>> Gloria is obviously a 50s Tele <<

thanks, that figures! do you know which one it is?
Dwight being de white 345 fits nicely :E

Pierre is the Stones backline crew boss. He also looks after Keith on stage. johnny re-strings all the guitars, Ronnie's and Keith's. there's so much to be done in that department that one guy can't do everything. Johnny's a real gent and always made me welcome in Stones guitar world.

sorry, you gentlemen were posting while i was horsing around prying into those other lists
that are barely visible in the back there.

how i get the photos larger is:
i downloaded them from your site, then uploaded them to photobucket.com.
i had to reduce the first one considerably, in fact - it was about four times bigger at first

and yes, we're very glad you've joined us, WeSellGuitars!

oh all right, since i'm prying anyway ... these are a lot harder to read, but ...
[peering hard:] what is the second column on the list on the right - years?
but some of them seem not to quite match the year of birth of the instrument named,
at least not the way "common knowledge" has it. and what's it say after Dice - RJC??

Can't read what it says after DICE but DICE is a '58 Les Paul TV Model.

Also I noticed that SONNY is down as a '66 but it isn't - it's a '67.

yes, i know which one Dice is -
we've got a whole thread about Keith's LP TVs and Juniors around here somewhere :E
and peering at it again, what it says after Dice might be 1958.
but that 66/67 discrepancy is an example of what's puzzling me:
a lot of those numbers seem to be not *quite* the birthyears.
isn't it strange

correct - the legend that is Micawber. Did you know that the bridge pickup isn't a Telecaster pickup? It's a lap steel pickup with only 2 mounting screws. Pierre told me that. He also gave me the strings that were used on the guitar the night before when he changed them.

I am a sad Keith fan.

You should see the guitars I own!

Yeah, I've noticed the missing front screw (also the 17th frt marker)
so that's a lap steel pickup - wow.
if you have more info - you know...post it. hehe

and yes, I'd love to see your guitars - go ahead, snap some pics.

The 17th fret marker dropped out the night before the Manchester show on the 40 Licks Tour and I got the strings that were on the guitar the night it went.

They still haven't fixed it after all that time!

Have you noticed how worn Keith's guitars get where the necks meet the bodies? he strums them to bits in the same area.

That's what I call relicing (?) the true way - doesn't need to be fixed really - only when the 12th fret markers drop out.

wringing 'em necks - yeah Keith is allways doing it

smile: i really had to think about that to realize you were making a verb out of "relic"
and not out of "lice" - "what lice, no freakin lice on Keith's guitars!!" :E :E :E

meanwhile ... it seems like the next names on that Restringing List are Ronnie's guitars?
N.O. = ??? the NoCaster, maybe?
BBB = the black b-bender?
D'Arms = the Dan Armstrong
Slash = ???
Blue Lite = that new Versoul with the blue inset?

(on some of WeSellGuitar's shots of the guitar racks you can see some of the names -
Ronnie's dark blue SG with the trippy patterns is called Blue Moon)

Just as info: there is no difference between a '48 to late 50's lapsteel pickup and a Telecaster pickups, except for the extra screw hole for the Tele bridge.

I would like to know when the original pickup was replaced. On the '75 and '78 tour the guitar still had the original bridge and pickup, starting from the '81 tour the bridge was changed to a brass one. I never noticed the missings screw until about two years ago.

N.O. is 'New Old' which is a 50's hardtail Strat of Ronnie's.
The guitars body has no paint on the back and funnily enough I had the body in the trunk of my car for a while as I was asked to send it to Clive Brown who was going to paint the back to match the front. That's a story in itself as I collected the body from Jummy Pages house and had a wierd experience. Anyway, Clive is the u.k.'s leading vintage finish restorer but in the end Ronnie decided he was going to paint a picture on the back and got the body back but hasn't yet got around to it. Here's a picture of Pierre with the guitar on the hottest day I have ever experienced where it was 104 in the shade!
The guitar itself sounds superb and Ronnie uses it quite a bit.

thank you! cool story :E
(and july 18th in Budapest was the hottest day in the history of everything, i believe -
you're lucky if you found a piece of shade that was only 104 degrees!)

Pierre's the one with the guitar (smile: which may be why it says "a picture of Pierre with the guitar" );
the other fellow is Johnny Starbuck (see the other photo of him above)
