  1. That's because you live in Newport News. I live in Charlottesville. It's beautiful. If you like the outdoors, local restaurants, and live music, it's a great place to live. I'm mean it's a terrible place to live. Nobody should move here. Barf!
  2. Any idea how I might find the best person to check it out or fix in Viriginia? Gibon's page on authorized service people only lists one, he's almost 2 hours away, and it looks like he's dedicated to electronics. Taylor lists a shop 1.5 hours away, and Martin hasn't gotten back to me.
  3. I would like to sell my '63 Gibson Southern Jumbo, and I'm trying to figure out how much it's worth. It's never been cleaned, but I'm afraid of using anything other than water to clean or polish it. The finish is checked, and the fretboard and frets are dull. I'm afraid that putting a polish on any part of it, or polishing the frets will somehow damage or "un-vintage" it. But most importantly, any suggestions on what it's worth, or what might be going on with the back of the neck pocket? The neck was never repaired if your wondering. The photos are in the link below. https://imgur.co

  5. I'm trying to change out a pot on my Schecter S1+, and the one I purchased from Sweetwater doesn't fit in the hole. There are two volumes and one tone. It's the tone hole. The other two holes (and all three pots I bought) are 3/8". The tone hole is bigger than 5/16", but smaller than 3/8" (6/16). What the hell? There was an A500k pot in that hole before if that matters. I don't see shaft diameters listed on pots listed on Stewmac or Sweetwater.
  6. I do not like GD or Blink. Though if they could learn to sing, Stay together for the kids gets me. My punk comes from Fugazi, and sometimes Minor Threat. I like the punk attitude of Isaac Brock, before he sold out.
  7. After thinking about it more, I think I might be looking for warmth and definition. If I want that Sonic Youth bite and trebble (I know, they do it with pedals), I already have a Jazzmaster. No need to have two guitars that sound the same. I think what I was getting at with the Radiohead/In Rainbows reference is that I want a pretty sound. As much as I love Fugazi and Sonic Youth, the kind of sound that really draws me is the sound of Weird Fishes. I'm not saying I want to replicate that, but I can't imagine a prettier sound. I was an avionics technician on F-15s in the Air Force, and I can't
  8. By definition, selling out is the antithesis of punk. If Green Day is punk, then we're in The Upside Down, and Eminem is country.
  9. I do want my own tone. But I'm not a natural musician. I'm the kind of guy who plays punk because all I can really do is slide around with power chords. My ear is not good. I'm just trusting bands I like to help me pick good pickups. I read all of these posts from different people arguing about what pickups sound muddy or tinny, or whatever, and I figure if a band sounds good to me, they must know what pickups are good and which ones suck better than some random guy on a message board. But I don't have any way of knowing which pickups they actually use, so I'm hoping someone can guide me.
  10. I have an SG-scale Schecter and I want to upgrade the pickups. If I want the SG sound from In Rainbows, which combo would be better? Seymour Duncan SH-2 Jazz (neck) and SH-4 JB (bridge) 490R (neck) 490T (bridge) Background: I'm a rock singer-songwriter, and it almost all chords and two-note strums (not necessarily 1-5) when distorted - think "optimistic." I don't usually hit single notes. But I do play clean and distorted. I'm a big fan of the Sonic Youth sound as well, but I already have an American Performer Jazzmaster. I know... I know... it has a lot to do with the amps an
  11. So, I'm going with linear pots for the volume and tone for my Schecter S1+ (24.75" Gibson scale). I'm putting in a Seymour Duncan SH-2 Jazz in the neck and an SH-4JB (or a Rickenbacher HB-1) in the bridge position. I'm a fan of the Sonic Youth and Fugazi sounds. Any thoughts on the pickups would be welcome (I also have an American Performer Jazzmaster), but I digress. I'm hear to ask about pots. If I'm using 500k pots, does that mean for volume AND tone? So, I'm going with linear pots for the volume and tone for my Schecter S1+ (24.75" Gibson scale). I'm putting in a Seymour Duncan S
  12. I get that. But do they say "Kluson" or do they say "Gibson?"
  13. He's telling me that the ones that say Gibson are only on the more expensive models, and that the lower models come with stock Kluson-branded tuners.
  14. I'm meeting a guy tonight to buy the exact guitar listed below. He said it's stock with no alterations. But it has Kluson tuners. It looks like they're the cheap variety (also linked below). I emailed him and he said that the tuners came stock. Is this true. Is there anything else I should be looking for? It looks like it's a 2002. If I took off the pick guard and looked at the pickups, how can I tell if they are the originals? charlottesville.craigslist.org/msg/d/covesville-gibson-sg-with-tkl-hard-case/7244058450.html stewmac.com/parts-and-hardware/tuning-machines/solid-peghead-g
  15. How do I find original tusk bridge pins for a 1965 southern jumbo? I don’t want new ones.
