Jason Isbell Shows Us His Rarest Guitars (ft. Les Paul "Holy Grail") | Collected | GQ

    GQ

    Runtime: 29:57

    Musician Jason Isbell has a collection of rare guitars that will make your face melt. To understate it, his collection is impressive, and perhaps no guitar more so than his 1959 Les Paul Standard Sunburst, affectionately dubbed "Red Eye." This instrument is the veritable holy grail of guitars. And it's not his only grail.

Of course the '59 Les Paul was sitting in some billionaire's vault. Of course it was. He probably never played it either. Just a trophy to look at that he didn't do anything to earn. I'm glad it's back in the hands of someone who will play it and cherish it instead of hoarding it.

Wow. Only a couple minutes into this video and as other people pointed out the audio is horrific, the jump cuts are annoying and unprofessional, the b roll footage is wayyyyyyy over blown with lighting and stupid filters and looks like Michael J Fox was filming them, the camera shots were not using the rule of 3rds and who ever filmed did not focus on the subject (well they were trying to at least WHILE HE WAS TALKING!!) Seriously GQ, this is highschool quality production value. Either hire a better production team or at least get whoever made this video to take an online course or something because this is terrible. This video ruined some very cool content and a very interesting interview with an amazing artist.

Love this guy but not staying to the end cause this is unwatchable. 2. You've got him wearing a mic but you're using the camera audio. Wtf?

Your signature model Martin? I'm wearing a $700 pair of studio monitor headphones.I engineer, produce by myself or in conjunction with a band,I'm a musician myself, and I'm telling you that on this $700 pair of headphones watching this video?Your Martin signature edition looks better without the pickguard(please don't ever have them put in a cutaway.They absolutely destroy the natural resonance of the wood,they were never meant to be there in the first place and that's why guitars that have cutaways usually don't sound as good, compared to guitars that have no cutaway).I'm also a stickler for electronics.No electronics inside of an acoustic guitar whatsoever, because that's just more debris inside of the guitar to screw with it's natural sound.And by the way not only was your signature model look better without the pickguard,but it is louder than your mid-50s Martin.

I was that guy. I played an Epi for 10 years or maybe 15, who knows. I thought spending too much on a guitar was ridiculous. Then one day I played a Custom Shop Les Paul. I eventually did buy one and it was a lot of change to put on that table. But looking back it was the best thing I did because if I were to sell it today I'd get more money for it than I bought it for and it is by far the best guitar I've ever played. Buy once, cry once.

I'm not even in a band anymore. I might jam with friends at their house during a party, me and a couple other guitar players might bring our acoustics to a fire on the beach and drink beer. Other than that I just play in my house these days..... In the past 5 years I've bought 22 guitars....😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 AND I AM NOT EVEN KIDDING AROUND!

This is how it went I bet. GQ had an hour slot with Jason. The technician has audio problems that he is unaware of at the time or realizes that he has no replacement gear to fix the problem on hand. He decides to make the best of the session with what he has. After it’s done he shows it to the producer and although it is unfortunate he makes the decision to publish it this way anyway because hopefully no one will notice the crappy audio and besides Jason’s not going to do it a second time. How’s that fellas? Any thoughts. Bottom line he didn’t know till it was done and then it was to late. I forgive. These tech issues constantly come up in the business. The trick is to have back up stuff and double check everything. Live and learn .

Jim Taylor according to his statement, he would play for anyone if he found a $500k guitar he was salivating over and wanted in his collection. I bet his accountant loves expensing all of those guitars on his 1040.
