  1. Past hour
  2. As the only way I know how to approach a guitar is with my fingers I have gone back to putzing around with both getting the hang of fingerpicks and hybrid/chicken picking. I worked out the intro to this one a long time back but never got around to figuring out verses and such. Time to get cracking on it.
  3. If we all sacrificed our parents and grandparents for the good of the country as a whole, wouldn't that be considered socialism?
  4. Hehe, , , that's what I thought - not only 1 big star, , , 8 different sized smaller ones . . 😮
  5. I think it is legit, and is a Gibson Ace Frehley 'Budokan' Les Paul Custom - https://www.guitar-list.com/gibson/electric-guitars/gibson-ace-frehley-budokan-les-paul-custom
  6. 1966 or '67 rosewood board Strat, large headstock, ser.no. 161234. Sold with case for £350 to Vintage and Rare guitars at the turn of the 80s, about 3 weeks before the Strat revival started! Also in pic; original 70s Hagstrom Swede, original Roland JC120 - all long gone.
  7. I haven't owned as many guitars as most of you, but I have gotten rid of quite a few. I don't really miss any guitars that are gone, because I love the ones I've got. But, to answer the question, if I had to name any, they would be a 1999 American Standard Strat or a 2003 Gretsch G6120 Nashville. That was the only Strat I ever owned, and as many mods as I made to it, I could never really bond.
  8. Good reminder to humidify your Gibsons folks ...
  9. Our grandchildren will be paying for it. Wishing someone had just let their old granny die a year sooner. Meanwhile, speaking of old granny's - the Speaker of the House wants a Fourth Stimulus Bill. They had openly declared they want to use this crisis to implement The Green New Deal. Not defer or reduce 2019 Federal Income Taxes, or something logical. I guess closing the coal plants and putting solar panels on everyone's roofs will somehow turn the economy around. Declare coal miners jobs 'not essential' and declare 'alternative energy workers' jobs 'essential'. Get rid of cows. But we'll all be riding horses.
  10. I've not used one, but I've heard good things about them. Regardless, for a '65 J45, you should pay attention to JWG's advice. Bridge plates used back then by Gibson were not high quality wood. At least the one on my '64 LG1 wasn't. So they often suffered from bridge pin hole enlargement syndrome. A fifty-five year old guitar, collectible to many, deserves to be restored to it's correct condition.
  11. Today
  12. The Gibson he is playing there is probably a B-25, and someone(Neil?) conflated B-25 and J-45. There's plenty of folks who think every Gibson is a J-45, and every Martin is D-28.

  14. folks - just wondering if anyone's aware of a platform that would enable jamming with another person virtually. I can understand how all the inputs / outputs go, get a mixer in the middle etc... but not sure it could be done real time - or if there'd always be lag because it over a remote connection making it impossible to do? just wondering, looking for input on products available, or just general discussion on how might go about doing it.
  15. My 2000 american standard strat... had a fret buzz issue i just couldn't resolve / get resolved (but now i believe it might be the people I was working with to resolve it). sold it out of exasperation. I miss it. but i've been bonding with my SG as a result.
  16. I have the Sg Original From 2013. It was a two years run. Heritage Cherry 2013 and Dark Cherry 2014 So the difference Between the models ABR1 Bridge - Nashville Bridge on 2013 500k Pots and orange capacitors- 300k pots on 2013 61t and 61r Humbucker- 57 classic on 2013 Speck on new say slim taper, on the Sg Original speck say Slim 60's. But mine is more rounded. Had the old 61 reissue, that was slim taper. Maybe the new one are like that? Contours and bevels Looks identical, except the headstock on the 2013 a bigger mustache. The new more vintage Correct. But the 2013 looks cool Mine is 1 piece body, think the new ones are that also A pick of mine
  17. I got it done. So, get off my case.
  18. Bingo. We'll ALL pay for this, for years.
  19. Dater project says, either Feb 5, 2011 #582 or 2014 #11088 But very little info
  20. The very first electric guitar I ever bought (when I was in a garage band, back in high school) was a used 1971 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. A gold-top. Had to have it after I sawr Jeff Lynne playing one on the television. Sold it stupidly when I joined the Army and left home to go off to Basic Training at Fort Jackson, SC. I am happy to report that the fellow I sold it to still owns it and plays it to this day. So I got that going for me. 😞
  21. Nor me. I have sold only a few. Though two I kept and used for 45 & 25 years. Even so, no backward glances. No regrets.
  22. Yes. Two of them now. Also two Gibsons among a bunch acquired in 2015. Crazy year.
  23. Ciao direi che il pickup burst bucker bb3 non è suo... Per il cablaggio è un po' confuso... Ma tant'è si può risolvere...
