    I bought this Studio Deluxe T just shy of a year ago. Musicians Friend put it on sale for $1,199.00, $500.00 off. It came with a hard shell case, Grover tuners, coil tap & 10db boost switch. A great guitar that you wouldn't be afraid to play out......................

  2. In Topic:R8 baked maple fretboard?

    Thank you so much for the clear response Pip ! You know, surfing around the net one day and found a discussion about baked maple being used on Les Pauls - probably not in this forum. Either the participants were completely wrong or I misunderstood about whether they were talking about reissues or not . . . I am happy to have it cleared up. As I said, I don't really care - I love my R8 - it sounds heavenly - I'd just wanted to know for sure about this subject of baked maple. Thanks again ! I'm glad to be here - wish I had joined years ago . . .

    My next issue will be about the color of the fretboard . . . maybe I should start a new thread, but my R8 fretboard is quite light(ish) brown in color (hence my belief that it could possibly be maple of some sort). I'm currently in the market and wonder if I need to move to a R9 to get a much darker colored fretboard (I just like the look).

    I'm coming into this a bit late, but my 2013 Les Paul Recording II has one of the lightest colored rosewood fret boards I've ever seen..............

    Very cool. A rare piece, indeed. Love the crescent moon pick guard! Is this one brazilian on the back & sides?

    It does have Brazilian rosewood on back & sides. The pickguard on this one is sort of odd. All of the others have a tortoise shell colored pickguard. This one had a plain TRC & a black pick guard. We think it might have been an early example, but who knows............. I just found an original engraved TRC. Rarer than hens teeth!
  4. In Topic:Does Gibson still make amps?

    I know I've posted this photo in the past. This series of amps should have been the last amps made by Gibson in Kalamazoo. I started collecting the smallest of this series amp a number of years ago. These were considered by most to be clean amps, more suitable for jazz & clean playing. The Skylarks do break up nicely when cranked all the way up. Other than one solid state amp that Gibson had in the Crestliner Series, the GSS amps were some of the earliest solid state amps at 50 & 100 watts.

    I negotiated with my spousal unit when I bought the leg lamp. I can keep it upstairs from "Black Friday" to January 1st in the bay window. I usually leave it up there till about February, then she reminds me what happened in the movie. It's downstairs until next year, keeping my guitars company. Why women hate leg lamps makes no sense to me.............
