  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. 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

  6. 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.

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

  11. 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...

  14. 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!

  16. 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.

  18. 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)

  19. 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

  20. 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

  21. From donating instruments to tornado victims to this email they sent out yesterday, I'm really proud of this company. This is also on their main page. 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

  26. In 1970 my father worked for the company that provided lacquer for Gibson. Because of my Dad's company's connections at Gibson, he was able to get a Hummingbird at "cost" for me for my 19th birthday. It was the most memorable birthday of my life, and I was duly thrilled to have my first quality guitar! Unfortunately, the guitar was subsequently severely damaged in an airline baggage compartment mishap less than 6 months after I got it. The top was broken in half with corresponding structural damage to bracing, neck joint and more. Fortunately at the time, a luthier was able to do repai

  27. Many years ago I met up with a buddy and we did the Philadelphia Guitar Show. I spent hours trudging around the place and actually bumped into my old SG Standard I had as a kid (I would know that guitar anywhere). I didn't have the $1700 the seller wanted so averted my eyes and plodded on in misery, boo hoo. The one other guitar that made me stop dead in my tracks was a figured, natural finish ES-335. It was just WOW! I didn't have the $3000 or whatever it was so just went home. This year it has just been work, buy the guitars I always wanted and try and avoid the diseased hum

  28. Well, it has arrived! Had a couple issues to resolve - tuner on back was loose and a tiny pickup bushing for middle pickup was popped out - but all is resolved. And thanks UPS, the box had a gaping hole in it. Luckily it was packed good enough where it withstood those clowns booting it around their trucks and warehouses. Setup was a**, but I expect this, haha! Truss rod was literally cranked so tight that it made the neck nearly 100% straight. Well, when you're buying a used guitar that's 26 years old, you better know a thing or two I guess. Either way, Music Zoo was super cool and part

  30. Our last official gig was December 2019. In 2020...nothing apart from some rehearsals - sometimes with a few people there, sometimes just us, couple new songs...that's it. Well, today is a glorious sunny Saturday here in our corner of the blessed Covid-less land of Oz and this afternoon we will be playing our bass players birthday at his house in the rainforest to hopefully 20 people, maybe more - nothing too amazing about that, but for the first time in more than a year we are breaking out the big guns - half stacks for both guitars, full stack for bass, big kit for drummer, whatever amo

  31. 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 🤔.

  33. New Same Guitar Day, HooRay!!!! Had this one a few years now, said when I brought it home I would do this. This is a2017 Mexican Strat, it was some limited thingy at GC. It was stupid on sale and I had a bag of mics to trade so I basically brought it home for nothing. It started life HSS. For about a day, it got a set of Duncan Stacks in it. Before: After: Pair of Duncan Saturday Night Specials. Nice pickups! That was fun. rct

  34. No, no, and no. Please, if you are going to start stinking up threads that have nothing to do with this stuff, please at least educate yourself about how these things actually work(ed)(s). It only makes you look like a whack freak conspiracy nut when you just wander around nowhere near any "facts". They are a thing these days. rct

  35. I could give a flying fig about what others think of my guitars. Just flash them to peace sign and advise them to stop drinking too deeply of the Tone Wood Kool Aid. It ain't about the lumber you are holding in your hands It is about making music. And the day that I do not have as much of a blast and get as much enjoyment from playing my Harmony Stella as I do one of my Gibsons is the day I will hang it up. Because I will have forgotten what it is all about.

  41. This came in today from Reverb. It's a 2001 Gibson Les Paul Standard gold top. Been wanting a gold top Standard ever since I started playing. This thing is in great condition. Looks pretty much brand new. Don't think it was hardly ever played. Has the 498T/490R combo. Sounds great. Plays great, but think I'm going to have to do a minor setup because there are a couple of frets that buzz some, but that can be knocked out. Anyway, here's a pic.

Here are mine: 2013 L-5 CES Bought this CS336 new in '07 or '09 (can't remember, sold it and gave away paper work) When I sold the 336 it was so I could buy this '17 CS356
