The event took place at
Lenny's concert in Zürich Hallenstadion.
we took the guitars to Lenny's dressing room at the Hallenstadion concert hall where, shortly after the concert, he received us and signed all six instruments and gave us a photo shoot.
Lenny shared with me and for the benefit of the Gibson Flying V Website visitors that he owned 4 1967 Gibson Flying V's all in fully original condition :
The concert was an astounding
one, definitely a Jimi vibe and so well supported by the 67 historics !
Rough and no substitue !
Thank you Lenny !
