Reckon the pose and fur trimmed jacket is just a coincidence?

Nice catch! Maybe not a coincidence.

Borrowed this from a FB post... Nick Lowe!

I used to have a sunburst one of those...loved it. Seriously chunky neck.

I'd like to think Hans Zimmer plays that 6119 but it might just be there to look cool

The Sales boys, Tony and Hunt were members of David Bowie’s band the Tin Machine. Hunt also played the drums on Iggy Pop’s Lust for Life.

They also played with Todd Rundgren on his "Runt" album.

Nice find and history guys! Nice to see a Rambler at work. Ben Vaughn needs one of those....

His name has come up a few times around here, but worthy of inclusion in this thread just foe the pic alone.

The guy Jimmy played with in a band with has a Gretsch, who knew?

Here is Jeffrey Kunde from Jesus Culture playing a '53 VS Dynasonic Duo Jet.

What do we think he's playing... '57/58 Jet Firebird (silver guard), or maybe even a cadillac green Duo Jet?!

I vote Jet Firebird: the contrasting sides are too dark for a continuation of Caddy Green from the front.

On another note: Spike, where/how do you keep finding this stuff? I'll have to check out some of this guy's music.

I subscribe to a lot of oddball guitar and music groups on FB and they just pop up. Like that Sal Salvador pic the other day, some of the other folks here must too, lol.
