  1. They used the Pyramid flats early in their career, and went to roundwounds later as they became more readily available.
  2. That guitar is so awful, it makes me angry.

    Wouldn't that be too thick? These are made of very thin, flexible plastic.
  4. All the faded Gibson's I've tried felt like they were finished with house paint.
  5. On another forum I'm in, a few people have bought these, and sold them not too much later. They're gorgeous, but the people I know said they just didn't bond with them for some reason.

    First time I bought a set, that's what the guy called them. I've heard "Goof Rings" too, but forgot the term until someone said it here. :)

    Does anyone know of anywhere one can get those creme colored plastic rings they used to put on Deluxes to cover mistakes? I got some from Gibson years ago to replace the originals, but didn't do a very good job of installing them. Now, I can't find them anywhere. Suggestions? I'm referring to the rings around the P-90's. (It was made between 71 and 73. It originally had the mini-buckers.)
  9. I can't blame a company for wanting to try new things, but does every stupid, ugly, self-indulgent idea your design department has have to actually go to market? And with an outrageous price tag? Really, that is the single most offensive thing since the reverse Flying V. And the Zoot Suit SG. And the RD series. And... you get the idea. I think that I've turned the corner, and I now officially hate Gibson. I'm keeping my Goldtop and my Casino, but no more business for you.
  10. Dave also used a Guild Starfire pretty extensively.
  11. I own a Chinese-made vintage sunburst Casino with the factory-installed Bigsby. I finally got to play an IBJL Casino today, and I can't say that I like it any better than the one I have. In fact, I liked it less. And now I feel a lot better (less jealous) about the fact that I don't have one!
  12. I have the burst with a Bigsby. I'm going for the George look.
  13. The B7 or the B70 is what you need. The B7 is the American-made version.
  14. Totally true. There were a lot of crappy guitars made in the 60's that we remember fondly only because they're old. Every played an old Gretsch? They're really not that great.
  15. The only way we're getting a new signature 12-string Riviera is if Zakk Wylde gets one and paints a stupid bullseye on it. And make it pointier. That guy could crap on a piece of barnboard, and Epiphone would rush it into production.
  16. You can't return stuff when your supplier screws up your order?
  17. My advice is to buy it if you like it, but don't pay anywhere near $1000 American for it. Maybe half of that. You can get a very nice new one for $599, and an even better one for $999.
  18. I'll bet he had Mal Evans do it.
  19. Definitely 90's or 2000's Asian.
  20. Well, I have a '71 LP Deluxe Goldtop that came with Minis, and Gibson originally used them because they were surplus Epi's that they had laying around.
  21. Just to add my $0.02 - P-90's are a very simple and very old design. They're pretty hard to screw up. The Epi's are "Gibson Designed," so there's probably very little appreciable difference between them and their Gib$on counterparts. I still may replace the switch, pots, caps and jack someday.
  22. Not so fast there, fella... Once you get hooked you're going to want a lot of guitars. It's called "GAS." Guitar Acquisition Syndrome. You'll find out... :-
  23. I can't get over the impression that I've always had, which is that Robbie Robertson is kind of a ****.
