    Default Led Zep covers with my 83 Pacer

    Heyo!

    Here's some video footage of my band back in 1990 palying some Led Zep / Plant covers.
    I'm just posting this because I'm restoring my old '83 pacer that has been stripped and stuck in a closet for 20 years!
    The vid starts out with me playing another guitar but @ 3:20 mark I broke a string and switched to the Pacer.
    I love the tone of that guitar

    Here's the video:

    Here's the thread regarding the restoration:

    I think it was fate or karma that the string popped on the PV(??) and you had to do the rest of the set on the Kramer.
    Great stuff.

    Thanks guys!

    that was a Signature guitar (the company was co-owned by Alex Lifeson)
    I got it for cost back then because I had a connection with Alex. I still have it!

    Thanks! I was a huge Rush fan

    Tom Sawyer is also very impressive.
    Thanks!
    It is such an iconic song and that was one of my favorite clubs to play...the audience really dug us. You can see the joy and fun we had on stage.

    Very cool! Great playing and not too many crowd filmed tapes from 20+ years ago that sound or look that good.

    Wow, awesome!
    Bolt on necks are cool because you can take them off and use them as swords to fight your friends with. Wait, actually, bad idea. Unless you have a shield (Hint hint: the body)
