  1. Another "I didn't know I had this", Duane?!?!? Seriously? We so need to talk! So, are you shipping me a Gibson? This latest one is beautiful! I don't know how you could have packed her away!! Sheila
  2. Not quite. I've been a quiet Gibson member. And I'm sure you'll see a few of these. Don't know if the count combined my two accounts or not, may have though. Sheila
  3. I joined Gibson 2 months ago, but have been a member of the Epi Forum for over a year. When the merge happened, it grabbed my Epi post count and the Gibson join date. Looks impressive though, doesn't it? I would have to be on all the time to get that kind of count up!! Sheila
  4. Anything off of this album. Funny as hell, too! Sheila
  5. ROTFLMAO!! That was great! Sheila
  6. You see the Epi ones all the time. I didn't know that Gibson had one, though. Interesting. Sheila
  7. Heart: 10 Desire: 10 Ability to learn songs on own: 0 Unless I can find an TAB. Effort: 5* That's an average as sometimes I practice for hours a day (cool weather), others, like now, I'm lucky if I get hours a month! Barre Chords: 0 Actual ability to play: 3 Do I care? Maybe sometimes. I do wish I played far better than I do, but I don't stress over it. I play for the love of it, and I play for myself. No burning desire to play publically, just wish I could nail a barre chord when needed! Sheila
  8. +1 - What he said! You already know that you have to play them first, at which time you will know which one to bring home with you! Sheila
  9. Ahem. Sorry! Even my son is disappointed with me! Though I'll admit, it's only a few songs that I like! But, if we all agreed, then why would we even show up? Sheila
  10. When you intonate a guitar you are tuning it - from the nut to the 12th string and then from the 12th string to the bridge. You may need to do an intonation after a string change! Did you mean will your guitar require a new set-up, as in aligning the neck and adjusting string height, etc.? Chances are, yes, it will require a new set up. Assuming you took the strings, pups, bridge/tail, and everything else off to do the actual relicing of the guitar's finish, you will need to set it all back up when you do the reinstall. One thing about bolt-on necks is that when you take the neck off you may find shims have been placed where the neck is bolted to the body. So you will need to figure out what you need to do to set the neck back on to the body to get it 'true'. If you are not sure what you are doing, learn first! Then take the guitar apart. Or, trash a cheap guitar first, then work on the better ones! Whatever you decide, good luck! Sheila
  11. This should work! Gave a listen, and at some of the live stuff as well. Not bad, not bad at all. And I need a P-90, too! Sheila
  12. GAS, yes. Cash, no! So, if anyone out there is in the opposite predicament, the Ebony or Gold Top '56, the Riviera P93 or the Yellow SC would be well loved here! Hope there is someone here who can take advantage of an Epi sale - they are so infrequent! Sheila
  13. There's another thread on this same subject or close to it, that was posted today. I use the Bugera V5 - and the attenuation works great! I love the sound of this little amp, and so does my son, who uses it often for practice. It gets pretty loud, and sounds great at lower levels as well. I use it mostly set at .5 watt, where Evan sets it at 5 watts. Only had it for a couple of months now, but it works just fine for me. I picked this amp as it had the headphone jack, and reverb. The attenuation was a bonus. Try them all (I did!) and have a great time doing so. The right one will find you! Sheila
  14. Twang, the new forum only allows 50 messages (the old one let you have 500!!) so your box is overfull and won't let you recieve more. I need to talk with you about getting the Agile back up and running, so drop me a line.


  15. It's gone. Did someone here grab it? Sheila
  16. The wiring of a G-400, with the wire running from the 3-way to the jack, should have a covered wire and a ground wire in it, correct? And if so, both wires are soldered at the 3-way, and the covered sheilded wire to the tip and ground to the sleeve of the jack, correct? Trying to talk someone through a fix, and want to make sure I know what I'm talking about before I screw him up. FYI: currently there is no ground at the jack.:) Thanks, Sheila
  17. Came across this while doing a search for a stolen Ace Frehley (out of New York). Even I could fall in love with an SG, now!! I know, it's a Gibby, but, OMG! http://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/msg/1876625182.html Sheila PS. Stolen from TSO (Trans Siberian Orchestra) guitarist, Orange County, NY - in case you happen upon it. Waiting for SN update.
  18. Does the guitar have a nitro finish? Natha will take it right off!!! Stick with the blow dryer method. It works and its safe. Sheila
  19. Wardog started a thread of these last week. http://forums.epiphone.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=197076 Love the Pelham Blue, but still not feeling the love for the guitar - just not my style. Sheila
  20. What kind of additional help are you needing? We'll need a more specific question to assist you. Sheila
