  1. eh, guys, this is a Gibson forum, so most people here are Gibson enthusiasts/fan boys/idiots/ disciples. And you wonder, that they talk about an artist playing a gibson?? Maybe some here should attend a forum for failed comedians or dedicated to guitar-nerd-bashing.

  2. When you go for spacing material, remember that tone matters. Tone foam. It's a thing. 😐

  3. Hi all, A quick update as requested by Nick in the Blues King thread...I've now been at home for two weeks, going back to the hospital daily for treatment as an outpatient. I'm on a strong dose of Ceftriaxone, a real knockout (in all senses of the word!) antibiotic which is working to kill off the endocarditis and brain abscesses. How success it has been remains to be seen...I have a follow-up MRI scan this coming Monday which will discern whether I'll need brain surgery or whether the antibiotic is doing enough to get rid of the abscesses. My eyesight is gradually impro

  4. Agreed. It's become a very tired, worn out and predictable act performed by the same two people.

  7. If that same post had her playing a Taylor, 99.9% of you would belly ache is was a POS sounding guitar, and mock the tone of it, and you guys know it.

  10. Funny story - back in the early 60s when she was just starting out, she was playing in our local H.S. gym on Long Island. I went with a friend, whose mother was picking us up. It was suppose to end at 10pm. He was scared of his Mom and at exactly 10 - got up and left. We were sitting in the bleachers and she was on an impromptu stage on the other side of the basketball court sized gym. Not wanting to be stranded, after a minute, I got up and started to weave my way past everyone, very visible up on the top row. As I was leaving, I heard Ms. Collins say - "I'm not finished yet, you know."

  11. Thanks guys! I’m getting excited for the first strum. It looks like this Saturday will be about 75° at the warmest so that will be good for spraying. I doubt I’ll get all the spraying done this Saturday but I’ll have plenty of time to work on the Tele project between coats. The body is about 1 11/16” thick

  12. presbythredia (presby=old age). Hard to imagine anyone harvesting anything now but the rabbits have been having a go at the avos that are still ripening. Luckily they didn't chew on the actual fruit, only the stems because the fruit are very hard. I let this one ripen for 2 weeks and it was perfect and delicious. I present to you, a Pinkerton avocado. Easily identified by it's long neck. Notice the meant to be gourmet looking salt bowl (square really) and the stem of a chardonnay glass. what a treat.

  13. I know this is an old thread but I just bough a second hand 336.. Been wanting one ever since I first played one about a decade ago.. There arent many guitars I would consider worthy of the price of a custom. But this one, I absolutely do..

  14. Unless you're using heavy gauge strings and have the hand grip of a Greek Mythological Warrior, I don't see the need to replace those frets after only 9 or 10 years. Any one of the myriad of fret cleaning processes and products will do. I use Frine, but only as of recently. Prior to that I did it old school with 0000 steel wool and all the prep work that goes with it. (covering the pickups with low tack tap, using fret guards purchased off Amazon to prevent scratching the fretboard. ) It was a messy procedure, the Frine is far less so. Fret Erasures that L. McCoy mentions will work,

  15. I don't think this is a matter of build quality. This guitar is over a decade old and requires some maintenance. There is no need for any invasive work here. For the dirty frets I recommend using fret erasures. Easy to use and safe. The corroded pickup ring screws can be cleaned up (just take your time with a steel brush) or replaced entirely along with the pickup ring using original Gibson replacement parts. Don't fasten down the screws too much or you will bend and eventually crack the pickup ring. Other than that, you might want to condition the fretboard and clean the gui

  16. Hi and Welcome to the forum. There's nothing really alarming here. Guitars need maintenance, the more you play them, the more frequently they need some TLC lacking that, will cause some of the issues you are communicating here. We can debate quality all day long, and Gibson has definitely had their fair share of real issues, but I don't see this has as much to do with Gibson's QC as it does speak to how to properly maintain the instrument Oxidization on the frets is normal, remedied by a good polish of the frets. If you have never done this, you are long overdue. Google "P

  17. One day C, E-flat and G walk into a bar. The bartender says, "sorry, but we don't serve minors." So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and G is out flat. F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. D comes in and heads for the bathroom saying, "Excuse me. I'll just be a second." Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor. Then the bartender notices B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and says, "Get out! You're the seventh minor I've found in this
