  1. Very cool! And no doubt there is a thematic thread tying all of the lyric ideas together.
  2. Well, I'm thinking I should be able to find a regular tailpiece as a replacement?
  3. I have an Epi Swingster with a Bigsby on it. I want to remove the Bigsby. Is this a) possible b) straightforward? Many thanks!!

    I have an LP Lite and I like it very much.
  5. Cool! Many thanks for this tip!!
  6. I play my Blues Junior with nothing else - no pedals. Not to say I would never use a pedal with it - I have used various things such as Chorus and O/D etc in the past. But I have to say I truly love playing through the amp as is, especially with my LP and an Epi hollowbody that I have. It sounds very rich and deep to me although I certainly do not have miles and years of amp experience.

    I never heard of Reverb. Is it a new place? I took a quick peek and looks very interesting! Many thanks!
  8. I don't play live anymore, I mostly play/practice unplugged - noodling - and that works most of time ok. At weekends, though, I plug in and I have two small amps. One is a Fender Blues junior which I love and the other is a Vox Valvetronix which I just picked up and am getting used to. It is what they call a 'modeling' amp which is new to me but is surely is a lot of fun! The Blues Junior is 15w and the Vox is 20 but they both sound very cool at lower volumes in the den. Just my 10c worth!
  9. So, I have an ES137 which I bought in 2012, I believe it was, and a LP Supreme from 2013. Both of these guitars are in storage in Canada while I live / work down here in Houston. On a trip home recently I brought the Supreme back with me and then, out of interest, looked on the the site to see what they cost nowadays. I was surprised to discover that they are no longer made. Did a little research and discovered they stopped making them in - I think - 2017. And so then I looked for my 137 and found that they are discontinued as well. My question is: Does Gibson discontinue models due to the simple reason that they were not selling well enough, or is there some other reason such as wanting to have a finite number of these models? My dream is to one day own a 175 but I see that they are not made anymore either. And I would have thought that the 175 would have been a very popular model! Sorry for the long windedness of my post!
  10. Is posting pics simply a matter of pasting or is there some special procedure? (To be honest I'm not forum savvy!)
  11. Just found this forum and I'm looking forward to conversations re Gibson guitars. I own several Gibsons which I have acquired over the years, including an SG Standard, an SG Junior which I bought in KSA many years ago, an LP Custom Lite, a Studio and a Supreme. Some of them have many more miles on them than others.
