Topics I've Started

  1. Starting to wonder, if I love the "idea" of a Les Paul, more than the guitar, itself?

    30 July 2017 - 03:26 PM

    Forgive me, if this is heresy, But...
    I have always owned (at least) one Les Paul model, guitar, since 1968. A new Les Paul Custom, at that time.
    And, I DO love how they sound, quite often. But, for playability, weight, and tone, the SG has just about
    taken over, as my "go to" guitar. Odd, since I didn't own an SG, for almost 40 years. Most of the "old timer's"
    here, know why, as I've been over it, time and time again. [tongue]

    Now that I have SG's (4) again, and ironically, mostly '61 "Les Paul" reissue, spec's, I'm struggling to even
    get out the typical (single horn) Les Paul's anymore. Probably mostly due to weight, and upper fret access.
    I still love the "look" of them, as much as I always have. But, if I'm being honest, here, I rarely play them,
    anymore. Maybe I will, again, at some point, in the future? But, I'm not at all sure, right now. [unsure]

    Do any of you have similar feelings, regarding the normal "Les Paul" models, even if it's not regarding SG's,
    or even other Gibson guitars. Maybe you prefer a Strat or Tele, or some other model/brand? But, still won't
    give up, on your beautiful "Les Paul's?"

    Just curious, really. [tongue] [unsure] [biggrin]

  2. Hey about a couple (or ONE, at least) Masterbilt 12-string Acoustics??

    18 July 2017 - 08:11 AM

    We need a Masterbilt 12-string...maybe even a couple (Concert 000 or OM style, and Dreadnought)?
    Haven't seen even a glimmer (so far) of one, and the Masterbilt's have been around for awhile, now!

    What's up, with that??! [unsure] [crying]

  3. BB King "Lucille" availability?

    11 June 2017 - 08:59 AM

    Confused! Is the BB King "Lucille," which is still listed on the Gibson "Memphis" category page, still IN production?
    Because, on the "Out of Production" section, it's listed, as well! Or, does Gibson just do that, on each year's production,
    to make way for the current year's (same) model, to allow for price increases? The "spec's" are the same, but the selling
    price is significantly Higher!! Right at 7 Grand, now! [scared]

    ???!! [unsure]

    Always wanted the Gibson version, but it's priced hopelessly out of my means, and justification.

    So, I settled for the Epiphone version, shown below, from Sweetwater! So far, it's seems like
    a real "Keeper!" Nice FAT '50's neck, fat but NOT uncomfortable, USA Gibson P-90's, a real
    Ebony fingerboard, etc., at a very reasonable price, all things considered. [thumbup]

    Got this Lovely Epi Guitar, from Sweetwater! Nice looking, awesome sounding (USA P-90's), and a nice FAT neck!
    (The fat '50's neck profile takes a bit of getting used to (all my other guitars are '60's profile), but
    it's NOT uncomfortable, at all...just "unusual," for Me!) [biggrin]

    Here's the spec's, on the Epiphone Site! http://www.epiphone....tom-Outfit.aspx

    Always wanted a P-90 LP Custom, but the Gibson's are TOO expensive, these days...unjustifiably so, for ME!
    So, this little Epiphone, with USA P-90's and a real Ebony fingerboard, will do just fine! [thumbup]
    At least Until, I win some huge "Lottery!" [biggrin]
