Everything's OK in Mayberry!

 
I was wondering if this was ever discussed before. Do you think Jim Lindsey(James Best) ever really played the guitar. In the one episode Jim and Andy are playing in the jail house together. One scene it cuts to a closeup of Jim playing and the hair on his arm is gone but when it cuts back to whole frame of Jim  you can see the arm hair.

Just wondering if anyone or everyone noticed this?

I believe that, while Best did and does, play guitar, all the music played by Lindsay was dubbed over.  Especially noticeable was the electric guitar sounds coming from that Sears and Roebuck acoustic arch top he played at first.  But I'm guessin' if Briscoe can get banjer sounds from a jug, Lindsay could have gotten electric guitar sounds from an unelectronified acoustic guit tar.

I'm fairly certain the close up is of some other studio musician.

Mr. Best was on the john boy and billy big show right before the 2010 Mayberry days and he said he told a white lie, when the producers asked him if he played guitar his answer was"boy, can I! I own two guitars!" when they found out he couldn't play, he answered "hey, i said i OWNED two guitars, never really said I could play them!"

James Best used to post here years ago on the old board.  Best must have since learned how to play.  I think he has a CD or two out.  That and I think he paints.  He sells them on his website.

I have one of Mr. Best's paintings hanging in my house!  It's great!  Fun to tell people about, too.

I noticed that his Original paintings sell for several hundred dollars.  He also sells prints, i.e. copies of his originals for about fifty bucks.  One is of the Mayberry cruiser next to the fishing hole.  I may get that one.
