A.K.A. Gibson Guitar Odyssey

The title may be considered misleading in that it tends to conceal the fact that all the guitars displayed in this documentary are Gibsons. (A few Rickenbackers and Fenders can be seen in the background during concert footage.) Be that as it may, this is a very good film thanks to the interviews with a wide variety of guitar pickers (see cast list) telling all about their love of the instrument and their influences. Excerpts from concerts add to the experience. I watched this in the comfort of my living room, holding a Gibson SG Junior — so what do I have to complain about?
