  1. Pull the fuse and then show her the power button does nothing. 😂
  2. Entirely possible. Reminds me of that Carlin bit: "And if it’s true that plastic is not degradable, well, the planet will simply incorporate plastic into a new paradigm: the earth plus plastic. The earth doesn’t share our prejudice toward plastic. Plastic came out of the earth. The earth probably sees plastic as just another one of its children. Could be the only reason the earth allowed us to be spawned from it in the first place. It wanted plastic for itself. Didn’t know how to make it. Needed us. Could be the answer to our age-old egocentric philosophical question, “Why are we here?”
  3. Sounds like: 1. You like the pickups in the Epi better. That's an easy upgrade and you could sell the stock Gibson pickups to cover the cost of the upgrade. 2. For whatever reason, the Epi has a better setup. Bring that Gibson to a good guitar technician for a proper setup.
  4. I have an ebony set for my Martin. Sgt Pepper (forum member) has them too if I recall correctly. I personally don't think the ebony ones sound any different than my stock pins. Maybe the bone pins would make a difference - I never tried those, they are expensive for sure.
  5. In typical guitar forum fashion, it took 2 pages for someone to remember metronomes exist. 😆
  6. What I got: Fender Mustang III v1 Fender Super Reverb Amp (1969) What I want: Fender Hot Rod Deville 4x10 Vox AC15C1
  7. Epiphone started making guitars in 1928. What about the almost 3 decades Epiphone was an independent company making guitars? Were they Gibson for those 29 years before Gibson bought the company?
  8. Aye I wasn't really thinking acoustics. I wonder how those sales stack up to electric sales? I bet they make way more money off electric guitars.
  9. How many of those really compete with what Gibson does directly? It would have made more sense to say Ibanez. I think in recent years Gibson has lost the ability to acquire other companies like they did in the past. But sadly it's too late for Epiphone.
  10. So what I meant by their history being "erased": When I was a 12-15 year old guitar player, I thought Epiphones were Gibson's low end cheap knockoffs (like Fender's "Squier") and they had a terrible reputation. Because that's what they had become. And not because the original company Epiphone wanted to do that. It was Gibson who acquired the company and then ruined a great guitar maker. Gibson eats their competition but you can never accuse them of a monopoly as long as Fender is around.
  11. Angelfire.com. Wow haven't seen that website in a long time. But you know, only facts exist on angelfire.com. It's not like just any idiot can create an account and start posting BS there. Oh wait.
  12. Well actually .... I work in a public school district. The vaccine was made available to district staff pretty early. BUT: 1. I have my own office and don't often have visitors. When I do, it's mostly the same 6 people. 2. Compared to some people who work with me, I'm not that old. So I held off and let the older administrators and the teachers who sometimes have to be in the same room with 20+ students go first. I just finally made my appointment - my first shot is next Friday. I don't feel stupid for letting the teachers and older people go first.
  13. Very nice, I like how the guitar and amp match with B&W.
  14. Kind of on topic: If you could play literally any guitar for 10 minutes, which would you go for? I think I'd take Jimmy's Les Paul (although it would be tough to NOT opt for Stevie Ray's "Lenny" strat.
  15. I like the "plain" Teles. That one looks perfect. 👍
