  1. So, picked up another guitar off of Reverb that I've been wanting since I was a kid. This one is a 1978 Peavey T60. Ever since I first seen blues guitarist Johnny Copeland playing one when I was a kid, I was like, "What is that?! That looks sweet!" and discovered it was this model and wanted one ever since. Years later, I finally got one, haha.

    Hey, been awhile since I posted on here. Hope everyone here is doing well! Anyway, I wanted to share a new guitar I got. It's a 2004 Parker P42. I've had my eye on a Parker for years. I remember first seeing one at a local music store when I was 11 or 12 and really liked it and wanted it, but by the time my dad went to get it for me the original owner came back and picked it up and had 2nd thoughts about selling it. Fast forward many years later, I found this one on Reverb and liked it, so I goy it. This one doesn't have the piezo on it, though. Just your standard 3 way and a push/pull coil split. Literally just came in, so I'm going to tune it up, test it out, and put new strings on it. Will come back with a report.
  3. Same! I have always loved gold tops and gold guitars. I have this gold top Les Paul, a gold Fender 50th anniversary Stratocaster, and a gold ESP Vintage Plus. Maybe I need to add a gold Tele to the mix, haha. But, yeah, I have a couple of buddies who aren't fans of gold tops or gold guitars in general and I'm like, "How can you not be?", haha.
  4. Just curious if anyone here has ever tried one. I remember way back when you couldn't get a Guitar World or Guitar Player mag without seeing them advertised. However, it seems they fell off the face of the map as quickly as they got popular and shut the doors several years ago. Don't recall ever seeing any in my area; at least I haven't. I see them floating around on Reverb and eBay. Always been curious about them. Still think about getting one someday.
  5. Thanks! I have both American and Mexican made Fenders and the M.I.M stuff is every bit as good as my American ones. Also have a single pickup Korean made Fender Showmaster that I recently dropped an EMG 81-X in and that guitar is a firecracker, too!

    So, I sold my Blackstar HT 60 amp. So, I've been wanting a Precision Bass for a good while now. Already have two Jazz Basses - a USA '03 Fender Highway One and a '14 Fender M.I.M. Standard - and been wanting to add a P to the mix. Been eyeballing this one for the past few months. So, Guitar Center recently opened back in March and they had this one in there. Went in there last weekend and it was still there. Recently sold my Blackstar amp, so I went in there earlier this evening before they closed and picked it up. It's a Player Series M.I.M. Fender Precision Bass. Limited edition ocean turquoise with a tortoise shell pickguard.

    This came in today from Reverb. It's a 2001 Gibson Les Paul Standard gold top. Been wanting a gold top Standard ever since I started playing. This thing is in great condition. Looks pretty much brand new. Don't think it was hardly ever played. Has the 498T/490R combo. Sounds great. Plays great, but think I'm going to have to do a minor setup because there are a couple of frets that buzz some, but that can be knocked out. Anyway, here's a pic.
  8. I know you guys would love this! First off, a little backstory on me first and how I started playing before I share this. I was born premature and have major back issues because of it and was a Shriner's patient until I was 18. There were certain things doctors didn't want me to do growing up because of it. So, the year 2000 rolls along and I'm 8 years old. I see KISS on Direct TV Pay Per View airing the KISS: THE LAST KISS concert during their "farewell" tour then. Thank God, I walked in the living room to see my parents watching it! Immediately became a KISS fanatic and beg my parents for a guitar. Of course, being a diehard KISS fanatic, I'm obviously love Ace's '80's solo band Frehley's Comet, who obviously, had a huge impact on me, too. Fast forward to present day being in my 20's. I'm friends with Tod Howarth on Facebook, who was the other guitarist and singer in Frehley's Comet. Made some comments on his stuff saying how much of an influence and impact he had on my playing and he was super appreciative. Eventually PM'd him telling him the story on my back and health issues saying how big of an impact he has had on my playing and gave him my story on my back and health issues and asked for an autograph and gave him my address too send. Got a response from him saying, he was touched by my story and "Of course I'll send you something!" and at the beginning of the year, I get this autograph of him with the rest of his new band Four By Fate and a hand written note from him with his personal guitar picks! The band also includes bassist John Regan, who also played for Frehley's Comet and also was Peter Frampton's bassist for years and did work for countless others. Drummer is Skid Row's former drummer Rob Affuso, and the other guitarist is Pat Gasperini. I'm forever grateful for this! Not everyday stuff like this happens - especially from childhood heroes! Talk about a major class act and a great group of guys! For check out Four By Fate! Thought I'd share!
  9. Awesome! I recently picked one up, too. Picked mine up a couple of weeks ago. Mine is the single pickup one and cherry, though. Absolutely love mine! Guitar Center just opened in my area a couple of weeks ago and I went opening day, which was the 5th, and I picked up that Saturday. They had the two pickup version in red, too, but I wanted the single pickup one. Someone snatched the 2 pickup one up, because it was gone by the time I went back to get mine that Saturday. But, like I said, I had my eye on the single P90 one. I love mine and couldn't be happier! Mine was list at $550, but got it for $500.
  10. This guitar is super fun to play! The P90 in it sounds absolutely fantastic! Sounds great through my Marshalls, Fenders, and VOX. Heck, even sounds great through my MESA Single Rectifier half stack and MESA F50 combo. Haven't tried it through my Peavey stuff, yet. Been mainly playing it through my '89 Marshall JCM 800 2210 half stack.
  11. Thanks! It was listed at $550. Got it for $500. It plays and sounds amazing! My guitar with a P90. Always wanted a Junior, Special, one of those older Melody Makers, or something in general with a P90 pickup or two. Seen this in the new GC in my area when they first opened on the 5th of this month and seen the price being brand new and was like, "Hmm.", so I went back and got it that Saturday.
  12. Around 40 at the moment, haha.
  13. Heck, I need to. Can't fit everything into one pic, though, haha.
  14. Pretty cool! Good selection of Gibson, Epiphone, and Fender guitars! A couple of PRS SE models. They have the Mitchell line in and Jackson, Schecter, Squier, Gretsch, and Ibanez stuff. Music Man basses. Decent amp selection. Pretty good acoustic selection from what I seen in the acoustic room. Didn't spend much time in the acoustic room. But did see some Epiphone and Taylor stuff. Think they got Washburn acoustics, too? Didn't see a Gibson acoustic in there. But, I didn't spend much time in the acoustic room. It was super packed the two days I went, which is understandable, since it just opened. Going to give it time to die down/be less crowded before going back in, haha.
  15. Thanks, man! The reason for the Junior Tribute other than it playing and sounding great is that I don't have anything with P90 pickups and been wanting something with a P90 or two since I've been playing. Plus, it was a good deal! The reason for the Peavey bass amp is because I have a Carvin R1000 full stack. Though it's a good amp, I'm just not happy with it for some reason and wanted something simpler and smaller. Plus, guitar is my primary instrument. Really want an Ampeg of some sort, but this thing is great and will do the job! Plus, for $90, you can't go wrong. The RG wad a surprise from my dad because he fell in love with how it looks and, though, he is a drummer, he was like, "I know how great the DiMarzio Tone Zone and Air Norton pickups are!", which he is right. Those are really good pickups.
  16. Yeah, but no '50's and '60's Fender's and Gibsons. That man needs to share those for the rest of us, haha. The oldest guitar I have is my '75 L6-S, which I got like 6 1/2 - almost 7 years back for under a grand. Amazing and underrated guitar!
  17. Thanks! 😂😂😂😂 No, but I still have a caveman slide phone, so that's why my pics are a bit crap.
  18. Ben awhile since I've posted on here! Hope everyone here is doing great! Anyway, got a few new pieces of gear since I last posted. I'll start off with the one I just got today. Guitar Center just opened in my area on Thursday and I went to the grand opening. I seen this brand new '19 Gibson Les Paul Junior Tribute with the single P90 pickup. It was $550. I was like, "Hmm. I like this thing a lot a lot!". So, I went back in there today and got it. My first guitar with a P90 and it screams! Always wanted a Junior, Special with P90 pickups, or a guitar with P90's in general. This was $550 and they had a 10% off thing going on - think it is just for the grand opening? - so I got it for $500. Second is a Peavey TNT bass amp. Has the Black Widow 115 speaker in it. 150 watts. It's an older one - '80's or '90's, I believe. USA made one. Picked it up off of my local Craigslist for $90! So far, I'm really liking it! Third piece of gear is an Ibanez RGEW521ZC. This one, my Dad actually surprised me with. He's a drummer, but he enjoys looking at guitars and basses, too. He seen this one on Musician's Friend and fell in love with the looks and thought I'd like it and said, "This guitar is gorgeous, it has DiMarzio Tone Zone and Air Norton pickups, and I figured with it being an RG, you can use something a different in your collection. I think you'll like it.", haha. Took me a couple of weeks to warm up to this guitar, though, but it is cool.
  19. Picked this up today at the new Guitar Center that just opened in my area an jammed with my dad a few of his buddies.

    Picked this up for Christmas. It's a 1996 ESP Vintage Plus. Has Seymour Duncan Vintage Rail pickups and Sperzel locking tuners. Played this at a local music store and was like, "Wow! This is a pretty sweet guitar!". So, I thought about it and picked it up the other day.
  21. Very nice! Congrats!
  22. Picked up two new guitars today. One I've been eyeballing for the past couple of months and the other I seen on Sweetwater over the weekend and had to get it, haha. One is a Dean V Stealth and the other is the new PRS SE Custom 24 with the roasted maple neck and boards. Getting ready to hook them up to my stuff right now and do some playing.
