  1. Ordered a 2020 Mid Engine Corvette 8/15/19. Had a few delays - auto workers strike, finishing 2019 models, re-tooling plant, covid shut down, delivery carrier going bankrupt, but on 10/7/20 I finally got to pick it up. So far I would say it was worth the wait. Rainy day so the lighting for photos isn't very good, but I think you can get the idea. 6.2 Liter fuel injected V8 with dry sump oil system, 495 hp, 8 speed dual clutch automatic trans with paddle shifters. I opted for LT3 package which means it is leather and suede inside from head to toe. Now if I can just figure ou

  2. Came upon this scene on a walk with my lovely down the boardwalk on Lake Champlain during sunset on a September Eve a few years ago. Thankfully, my Canon 20D was with us, otherwise, I'd have missed this one. A harvest Moon rising over the southern coast of Maine. Early Autumn along the roadside in Kennebunkport ME. Sunset at Nubble Light, York ME. Early winter snowfall, warm enough for the snow to stick to the trees, this was taken about 7:00 am. before the sun could melt it all away this was originally shot with Kodachrome 25, then sca

  3. What did I do wrong? During the past 4 years I've spent roughly $10,000 on Gibson guitars. I think I posted pictures of every Gibson I bought - I was making sure what I was buying an authentic Gibson. (they were all used guitars). So, yeah, anyway, about the -2 reputation: Did I offend people or something? I can't imagine what that would have been. =/

  4. The problem with that statement is its nonsense.. You know you cant give away your dose to anyone, it doesnt work like that. There is no dose specifically for you and wont be as you said you wont be getting one.. You know that and so does every one else. So when you say things like that knowing that its not even possibility, it means what you are saying without saying it, again and again is Im not getting it for what ever reason blah blah. We know.. You have said it over and over.. And the only other reason to say it is just to stir things up with people who do want to get it... Why el

He reduces height and spots a man down below.He lowers the balloon further and shouts to get directions, "Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?" The man below says: "Yes. You're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field.""You must work in Information Technology," says the balloonist. "I do" replies the man. "How did you know?""Well," says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but It's of no use to anyone." The man below replies, "You must work in management." "I

  15. I've been an SG fan since about 1963, when I saw my first one in the hands of the lead guitar player of some band at a party I went to. I was about fifteen. I couldn't take my eyes off that guy's guitar. It was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. There were no Les Pauls at that time, they had been discontinued due to lack of interest. I probably didn't even know anything about Les Pauls then, because Les Paul himself was passe and. played my parents' music. The SG was a rocker, and made a deep impression on my young soul. >After playing acoustic and bass for liter

I can’t bring myself to talk about it specifically, but I miss you guys, and I’d like to ask as a favor, if you could send some good karma my way. thanks and peace...

  17. We had an old PA system hanging around for some time. (Soundtech) powered mixer, two way (15s/Horn) enclosures. Wasn't using them, they weren't worth even selling really, maybe some where around $175/200 for all of it. My son and I agreed, just find someone who needs a PA and give it to them. There's a luthier in town, (she's excellent) she also teaches, (good guitar player) and has recently started mentoring a group of young players who've formed a band. They are very good for their ages (15~18). I asked her if she knew any one who would be interested and she immedia

  18. You do it to yourself a bit here by adding comments like... Im giving my shot to anyone who wants it.. Of course its up to you to do what you want.. But you dont have to keep commenting on a thread where you know most people do think they should get it and want it.. What do you expect to happen apart from more people who take your bait...

  21. A few weeks ago, I got my first Les Paul as a surprise gift from my wife! It’s a Gibson Les Paul Special from 2020 and it has proven to be the best guitar I’ve ever played! Not only does it look nice, smell nice and play nice, it sounds amazing as well! To show some of the versatility of this guitar, I recorded this version of Bold as Love, which is an archetypical Strat song. Those of you with keen eyes can perhaps spot a Stratocaster lurking in the background? Would love to hear what you think of this!

  23. This has been a rough pandemic on a lot of different level for everyone still above ground. I've wanted one of these since I bumped into a guy carrying a 335-ish case when I was in my early 20s and I asked if I could see what was inside it. For surviving nearly a year (mostly) trapped indoors with my wife, I decided what the hell, bite the bullet and do it SO it should be here next week. In the meantime, here's what will be on the UPS truck soon, a 2008 ES-345 with the coveted ToneSuck Device, stereo and slim neck.

  24. I was wondering why the 61R and 61T Burstbuckers in my new LP Classis sound considerably different than the BB Pros in my 2017 LP Standard so I emailed customer service about it. I was pleasantly surprised to get an answer within a half an hour on a Sunday afternoon. The pickups on the Classic are uncovered which I would think would make some difference, but both sets have Alnico 5 magnets. The difference is in the number of turns for the winding. The Bursbucker Pro Rhythm pickup has 5000 winds on the screw side, and 5200 on the slug side. The Pro Lead has 5300 on the screw side and 5500

  25. I brought home a new 2019 Original Collection SG Special from Bailey Brothers in Birmingham last night. A big shout out to my guitar guru-salesman Erskine Milton! This is a beautiful guitar, flawless, and a tone machine. I was quite surprised how versatile this guitar is. Rock, Blues, Jazz and Chickin' pickin' this SG will deliver. Lite weight but not as lite as I had imagined. Balanced very nicely and the neck is heaven. Gibson is having a banner year in 2019. They have gone back to making guitars that made Gibson a legend.

  27. Back in High School Guitar Player magazine had just been launched and I started reading all of Tom Wheeler's articles about Gibsons from days gone by and my drug addled teen-aged mind was permanently warped by the pictures I saw there. I saw an early black Les Paul with P90s and my eyeballs popped out of my head with an audible BOING! noise. Holy Iconic Guitars, Batman!!! I've wanted one ever since. A little over 40 years later here comes a modern day facsimile of sorts. I'm really excited about this one. (don't tell the wife)

  28. No worries, this is a routine adjustment that is easily rectified with a slight tweak of the truss rod. If you don't know what that means, then you should search out a reputable guitar repair tech in your area. (try not to call Guitar Center, they rarely have any one that knows what they are doing) This would not be an action that would be considered a warranty claim unless the neck had become twisted or askew. A qualified tech would have to confirm that. Gibson should have shipped a truss rod wrench with the case, if not, then you can get them easily off amazon. (5/16 hex thin w

  29. I must confess. I once found perfect tone in a pawn shop, with a crappy, dusty guitar with five strings on it, and a no-name amp that was missing a Volume knob. I have found perfect tone in a temporary drunken state that later found me barely waking up from a bourbon coma. I have found perfect tone on a stage with my friends and band-mates on days or evenings when the wind was blowing just right, and our harmonies were tight, and the audience was happy and rocking. I found perfect tone trying out a Telecaster in a music store in Yuma, Arizona years ago. And it had more to

June 1st, 2020 For over 100 years we have supported voices across generations, genders, races, religions, and movements. We’ve supported voices of peace and change. Voices of love and heartbreak. Voices of solidarity and solutions. Today we are truly at a crossroads that will require the courage to make these voices, and our voices, matter even more. Racism should have no

  40. Yes, I know, I have already posted about this in the 'Blueshawk Club' thread but I felt I had to share my experience today in a new thread. I was fiddling with my Marshall DSL15C, basically just knob twiddling really, trying to get to that sweet spot without perforating my eardrums or aggravating my neighbours. Well, anyway, today must have been one of those days when everything cosmically aligns and turns out perfectly. The amp settings seemed to be spot on and the Blueshawk really sang. It was unbelievable, such a great tone. I'm not a good guitar player, far from it, but even with my lumpen

  43. Last month I asked reddit for advice on choosing between a Martin HD28 or Gibson Hummingbird for my first guitar. In the end the Hummingbird stole my heart (though the Martin will definitely come, just down the road). Went to GC and took home a Standard Hummingbird from 2019 that has a very nice tone and feels like a monster when I reach around the body to strum. The action is insanely high, but I played most everyday for at least an hour (or until I swear and curse, whichever comes later). There was just one thing though: that cherry sunburst finish 🤔.
