  1. In advance of my 50th birthday on the 14th of March, my amazing wife has got me this amazing 61 SG Reissue with sideways vibrola. This has joined my 2015 Les Paul Traditional and 2003 ES-355 to form the holiest of Trinity’s.

  2. These people who are watching that channel are being conditioned. They're tweaking your insecurity and your fears at the same time they repeat the same dishonest stuff over and over. Rile your fears and blame it on "modern culture." Do it over and over, morning, noon and night. No accountability, no honor. No wonder all these guys think everybody hates them and they need to punch somebody in the face. To regular people, it's a weakness. You're left behind and now you're complaining. Our moms told us we were watching too much TV. Moms are always right.

  3. The last time I owned a fffffffFender was in 1983 when something possessed me to buy a 1979 Anniversary Strat at Guitar Center, then immediately sold it two weeks after buying it.... lousy sticky maple fretboard and the sound of swarming bees when I plugged it into my SMF Tour Head.... Just AWFUL. Anywhoo I came across this heavy cream color 2003 Fender USA Strat with a rosewood fretboard and an unusually large headstock. I also just learned the fifth hole on the neck plate for some neck tilt adjustment deal.... I'll make sure I won’t mess with that. I should be receiving it at some

  5. I picked up a 2007 Martin 000-28EC (Eric Clapton) last Monday.... It has sat at a secondhand instrument/pawn shop for years possibly - I think it was there when I bought some other guitars 18 months ago! So I thought I would put everyone out of their misery and buy it - I first played one in about 1998 when it first arrived at a shop I frequent and that one was beautiful but very expensive, but one of the first small body guitars I ever saw/tried. The shop photo for this one was pretty average and when I played it at the shop, it was covered in really thick dust and grime with strin

  6. No offense @fortyearspickn but anything you cite from that right wing propaganda in Fox News has lost all credibility with me. Why do you want to bring that meaningless BS here? Like just f’n why? I’ll bet you still have your 2020 sign on your front lawn too and a flag on your flag pole like the other whackos near me do too if you’re that rattled about the “radical left” and “being cancelled” to the point you bring this crap up in a GIBSON GUITAR FORUM. Literally you bring up all these conservative talking points up here all the flipping time... It’s somewhat amusing to me yet somewhat irritat

It surprises me how I - as an American citizen and product of public education - got my engineering degree and learned how to do Fourier transforms while learning about some advanced physics concepts... I know, it was the f'n tin foil hat I always wore in class... All makes sense now.

  25. Pickups are very microphonically sensitive, by adding metal covers the metal mass close to the strings has been increased, possibly increasing their sensitivity. Any weak ground could possibly cause problems. Since your pots are connected to a circuitboard and grounded through it. You could check it by removing the CB with the pots and input jack, then closely inspect any loose connections on the CB. things that might help... Make sure the buzzing stops when you touch the strings, if not the ground wire going from the CB to bridge is bad. Soldering a ground wire runnin

  26. You guys obviously need more chores to keep you off the streets. You can tell you're old when you complain about other peoples' businesses. If Dr. Seuss, Inc. needs y'all's input they'll be calling you. Like if I complain about country music, maybe Nashville will call me for advice. Ya'll git back to your own trailer!

  29. Jeremy, When I went to install some new Seymour Duncan pickups in my 2017 Les Paul, I had to purchase an adapter harness in order to use the existing Gibson Quik-Connect wiring. It was easy. All I had to do was follow the SD schematic to match their colors to Gibson's wire colors, and, using heat shrink, all was well and easy. Two wire pickups, that's a slightly different story. Follow these instructions, and all will go well, mate. You cut off the Gibson quick connect plug, and heat-shrink wire to wire, like so. https://lambertones.store/pages/p90jazzmasterwiring 😀

  30. I have tried most of the mainstream strings over the years, but have pretty much settled on D’Addario EXL-110s for my six 6 string and one 7 string electric guitars. I tend to alternate between guitar and bass: guitar one day, bass the next. I rotate the guitars, trying to give each of them equal play. Before I play, I always wash my hands and arms up to my elbows and when I’m done playing, I wipe the entire guitar down, including the strings. I rarely change strings because they don’t oxidize, go dead or break.

  32. OK, looks great. Your original post just said you had ordered one - not that you had already gotten it. CME should be able to tell you how many were made as it appears to be a special run just for them. Not the usual 359 model for sure with the 3 pickups and Bigsby. And since the Memphis factory is now closed, would be one of the last runs of guitars made there. Hope you enjoy it as it is unique and seems to have all the "bells and whistles". 👍

  41. A note about this comment I just made above: Given that you are looking at brand new versions of the 335 & 339, I would expect to find rather similar neck profiles available. But there is no substitute for an in-hand assessment, and that’s where the Sweetwater rep could be super helpful. They seem to have a good reputation for assisting their customers, so it would be worth seeing what they can do for you.

  42. I hate to bump an old thread, but this is the top Google result for a search on the ES195 with Classic 57 pickups and the other late-run parts. I have one and love it. I like P90s just fine, but I wouldn’t have bought this guitar without humbuckers. As it is, it’s a slim 175. It’s great for rock, and is easily my favorite guitar.

  46. I’ve only played one Mossman, a Great Plains. I’m not ashamed to say that it’s the only guitar that has brought me to tears with its sheer power and tonal beauty. It was like an arrow direct to the soul, I’ll never forget that guitar, I wish I’d been able to afford it. I was so inspired by it that I named the opening track of my last album ‘Great Plains’. I would absolutely love to find an up together Mossman that I could afford. Huge congrats on your Flint Hills!

  47. the bottom line to this, are some people, are just NEVER EVER frikken happy. One of my ex-coworkers used to say about our times doing IT support together... "Users! They'd complain if you hung em with a brand new rope!" I've got about 20 guitars, all but 2 were purchased new. Was everyone PERFECT.. nope.. Heck! nothing in life is. There's a limit where you just gotta let it go, and play the stupid thing... Yet these threads pop up a lot, and they get tiresome...
