Topics I've Started

  1. 2003 Gibson Melody Maker

    19 May 2017 - 08:28 AM

    Hey everybody! I was hoping you guys and gals could help me put a price on my 2003 Gibson Melody Maker. I'm having trouble putting a price on it because of the work done to the guitar. I know pretty much anything you put on a guit drops value except for pickups, but this was a dirt cheap axe to begin with. It has schaller strap locks, grover locking tuners, a gfs machined brass bridge, a wammiworld brass tailpiece, and I had a tv jones powertron plus installed with a spin-a-split replacing the tone knob. Every tone from full humbucker to single coil is very usable. The single coil sound is amazing and much better than I expected. And like a Gibson should, it plays like a dream. Not trying to sell it on here, just seeing if I can get some help pricing it.
  2. XGP solid brass bridge

    10 February 2017 - 08:24 AM

    Hey all! I'm new here, but I figured I might as well start contributing! This is my review of the XGP solid brass bridge sold by GFS. http://www.guitarfet...s-_p_23129.html
    So my journey starts off as a broke musician (redundant, right?) looking for a cheap replacement for the zamak nashville bridge that came on my 2003 Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker. I had already installed a NOS Kahler brass tailpiece that I purchased from wammiworld, and was very pleased with what felt like slight increase in sustain. So now I knew I wanted a brass bridge or atleast saddles. Being broke, I bought this $30 bridge expecting the worst. I was wrong. Being cheap, I saw that the bridge could sit on my nashville studs, well there's $5 off right there! Lol so I installed the bridge on nash studs, fits a little loose, but does NOT move when under tension. I had to adjust the bridge as low as it could possibly go, which isn't a good thing, but the action was beautiful and slightly lower than before. i didn't notice any HUGE difference in sustain but that could be attributed to the stock studs. However, it did kind of seem to make each note stand out more. Like when I was playing chords with hammer ons and a lot of chopping everything just popped out more. Anyways, I dig the bridge. Would buy it again.
  3. Need help identifying an SG!

    09 February 2017 - 12:17 PM

    Okay, so somebody has an SG for sale, but they know nothing about the guitar. Neither do I. The serial # is trapped under a refinish, and the guy/gal probably won't let me strip the back of the headstock. The guitar is a 22 fret SG with an ebony fretboard and no inlays. That would lead me to belive that it's a Gothic model, but the fretboard is bound too. I've never seen an SG like it in person and I can't find a model with a bound ebony fretboard and no inlays online. Could definitely use some help IDing this thing.

  5. Word from Flint, Michigan USA

    09 February 2017 - 11:53 AM

    Hey everybody! I'm a self-taught mandolinist/guitarist from Flint, Michigan. I play pop, rock, and blues. My two absolute babies out of my collection of instruments are my 2003 Gibson Melody Maker (a custom build in progress) and my 1954 Guild Aristocrat (first model year, all original, and a family heirloom). My first instrument is mandolin and currently I play a 2014 Fender Mando-Strat 8. However, after talking to Fender customer service, I will NEVER buy an instrument from them again. Just a little about me. Nice to meet you all.
