  1. Past hour
  2. I put a colossi bone saddle in my Gibson Hummingbird....HORRIBLE. It instantly sounded LOUD, unfocused, blurred. It no longer sounded like a Hummingbird..at all. I removed the Colossi bone saddle and put the original tusk saddle back in, same strings.....Wow. ...The beautiful Hummingbird sound was back instantly. The tusk was so much better. Lesson learned.
  3. Be careful with your plans to refinish the top. Some of those tops are not a wood veneer.
  4. A little bit of an aged thread here, but the things the OP complained about is the reason I tried 2 18 Classics out and had dealbreaker issues with each one. I ended up selling the one I kept, even thought he fretwork was absolute garbage bag. Luckily I got it relatively less than MSRP and didn’t take a bath on it. That was the last new USA guitar I will ever buy. I only go Custom Shop these days because those are actually done right for the most part. Oh well, wanted to share the hate haha!

    Real Gibson?

    Can you tell if this is a real Gibson?
  8. Today
  9. Hard to say from the photos. The best way usually to spot a fake is to remove the trus rod covers, if you see something that looks like a 5/16 nut, you're good. if it looks like an Allen wrench is needed, you've got counterfeits. No USA Gibson made (ever) will use an Allen Wrench for adjusting the truss rod.
  10. Vey nice guitar Jdgm..love the LP by far my favorite electric guitar...I agree this has always been a good forum, hate to see the bickering that is currently taking place here..
  11. He was gonna come to Richmond, Va then well ... you know what happened.
  12. What was the answer?
  13. Very cool - make sure you run the firmware update before u play: Important Firmware Update for Yamaha THR10II Wireless/THR30II Wireless Guitar Amps Yamaha has become aware of four incidents of extreme overheating during charging of the THR-compatible Line 6 products Relay G10T wireless devices.

  14. That looks very cool. Looking forward to a review... wireless, battery, guitar, bass, acoustic, everything I could hope for.
  15. this is an old thread that you are replying to If I get the point of your question.. you are asking if Epiphone as a builder has a history that precedes Gibson? if so, yes. Epiphone was it's "own" company when it began in the late 1800s. See this for more https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epiphone
  16. I'm starting an upgrade project for my Epiphone Les Paul, that will include new tuning machines and mechanincs, new humbuchers (alnico III and IV from a boutique) and new paining of the top is it possible to take away the painting from the top for an Epiphone Standard? or is it quite impossible since the top is laminate and covered with propylene? qhat are the best tuning machine from Gibson?
  17. 🙂 Let's not lose our heads. If the world is falling apart, let's lead by example and show the world that we can keep a guitar forum together. Have a good day, all!
  18. So much for good wishes... 😦😕
  19. Very cool, seems like he's just put out a bunch of stuff. RWH is my latest guitar hero... Thx for posting!
  20. I'd go for the 60s fixed bridge hummingbird reissue , but go M2M program and get it with a 1 3/4 nut.
  21. Theres a nicely priced 335 studio here at Reidys uk https://www.reidys.com/electric-guitars-c14/gibson-es-335-studio-wine-red-p7335/s7745?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=gibson-es-335-studio-wine-red-0000000300636&utm_campaign=product%2Blisting%2Bads&cid=GBP&gclid=Cj0KCQjwl4v4BRDaARIsAFjATPl9nc1qEmkCK_T7g3F1FlIGogCEdE6J-ooDIKavhvnH24-XxuX2Ry0aAoZTEALw_wcB Its the same finish as my 339 (wine). I could go for this myself if it was similarly speced.
  22. It's getting to that point isn't it... I have been spending more of my FREE time on the AGF, the moderators there are very present. No monkey business allowed.
  23. LOL! hey when you off yourself, can I have your J200?
