  1. Well here is a picture of it from NAMM
  2. This what I got back from them today We are sorry. You have been denied access to the "Conversations with the CEO" forum at this time.
  3. It is alittle too soon for that to be happening to that finish unless you have been going out in the cold and bringing it into a warn room over and over again. Try posting a few pictures of this so we can see how bad it is. Only thing I can tell you right now is give Gibson a call and let them know. but I don't think they will do anything unless it's a major flaw in the finish.
  4. Custom shop quality is not what it used to be. I have been seeing alot of lemons rolling out of the custom shop for some time now. and it's not getting better. Now I don't mean all of them are bad, but they are not somthing you should be paying 3k to 4k for.
  5. Here is another video of Alex's gear check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUxkWM_qtyk
  6. I don't know if any of you seen this video but I'm sure Gibson did everything on the Lifeson as they did on the Eric Clapton Crossroads Gibson 335.:) Yea Right!!!! Check it out. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4764707652331081865
  7. Allparts Part# BP 2010-002 Tremolo Arm for S.G.® Style Tremolo, Gold, With Hardware
  8. This is characteristic of the maestro tremolo. you can use it but not like a floyd rose. On the AL-355 there are 2 points were the strings will bind. One is at the nut and the other is at the bridge. You can lubricating the nut slots and the slots at the bridge to see if that helps.
  9. A Floyd will not work on it. You would be cutting out most of the center block just for the springs. With a Kahler you would only need to cut a hole about 3/4" of a inch deep in the top and into the centerblock.
  10. This horse is long gone and is now glue, we are now flogging the ghost of the horse.
  11. I have too many dark color guitars. If it was me, I would go with the Iced Tea. I will say the Iced Tea does look cheesey when it's next to a cherry burst.
  12. I agree with the Admin, there are production differences in every run. No 2 guitars will be alike. Yes there are differences with my neck to the whitewood neck and there are differences to the 2 other AL-355 I've held in my hands.
