Russell Malone and Sonny Rollins
Russell Malone sent me this great photo of him and Sonny Rollins. Russell is holding his LS-17.
I want to share that Russell had a Semi-Hollow for less than a year before I finished my first LS-17. Since Russell was an L5 fan, I wanted his feedback on the LS-17. He borrowed it for a week or two and when I checked in with him, he said the loved the Semi-Hollow so much, he really wasn't looking for another guitar. He was just about to start a week at the Blue Note NYC with Ron Carter and I asked him if he could, to just try it out and give me his opinion. Well, he tried it on the second set of the first night, and has never put it down since......
