  1. Great presentation with in-depth analysis. The pictures (especially the #2 close-up) make one want to grab the guitar and just start playing.
  2. Sgt. Pepper, welcome back! With regards to exclusivity... I think Gibson is trying to tell us that this is the only set of guitars in the Gibson acoustic collection, with this feature. For studying and practice it's probably the way to go.
  3. Nothing wrong with a bonus here and there. Corporate workers get them, Wall Street traders get them, farmers get them, so do medical doctors... Teachers deserve them too, especially in these #covid19 times! 👍
  4. I have never even heard of these guys before. The mastery of the instrumentalists and vocalist is ever-present, no lousy or boring moments. The songs are time-period correct, but they sound fresh and new. So, this is sheer delight and pure music to my ears. 😎
  5. The body is so striking and imposing, that the knobs/buttons don't really matter much. In this case I would go with the ones, that have 1..10 numbers for usability. This will be a beauty when painted and finished over. PS. Those black arm-braces, worn at night & idle parts of the day actually do help relieve carpal tunnel nerve problems.
  6. "Made to be played in China", or "Made in China to be played"? 🧐 #Guild
  7. Not using the same cloths for body-polish and string wiping is also important. Strings sometimes get a little rusty, when playing non-stop. Those particles should not come in contact with the guitar body, or they might produce tiny scratches.
  8. This is to be taken as the standard for cleaning the body and back of the neck. Great lesson by Jim DeCola! 👍
  9. I have not touched a cigarette since 18. oct 2005, that'll be 16 years soon. IT IS WORTH IT, life becomes better in every way. Even health improves slowly, but noticeably. Yeah! 👍
  10. There was a huge increase in demand due to this stupid #COVID19 pandemic. The normal reaction is that the prices go up, and any responsible business will adapt. All those same workers in factories make products with a higher margin. This goes not only for MIA Fender and Gibson, but also Player, Epiphone. And not only in guitar industry, but in most. Fender has never had so much revenue as in the past year. I assume this goes for Gibson too. Look at the price lists of the biggest retailers (Sweetwater and GC, Andertons UK, Thomann EU), most new Gibson guitars are Murphy Labs. Same goes for Fender's Custom shop. When the pandemic subsides, the demand will decrease and production will shift to normally-priced items again. It will take at least a year, though...
  11. Do a test: Try connecting the power to an UPS (one of those for desktop PCs). Maybe it's just unstable electricity in the house...
  12. Freddie King shows some incredible magic, and yep, it's a Gibson ES. 😎
  13. Beautiful guitar! 😎 I started cotton-padding guitar stands in the same way. Maybe it's ugly, but the guitars love it!
