  1. Thank you gentlemen. I will run an ad at $1800. And yes, it's a beauty, but sad for it to sit in the case without being played. Let somebody else enjoy it, while I play my acoustics. - Dan
  2. Never got around to playing this electric, it's in unplayed condition, ebony finish. Include unused Gibson shell case and the original Gibson cardboard shipping box. All mint. It left the factory in February 2012 and has the baked maple fretbroard. Anyway, wondering what a reasonable offer price would be in the local classifieds (DFW area)? Thanks for your thoughts... - Dan
  3. Good one!! Forgot about Toy playing a LP, and I do love me some MTB :D
  4. Very nice looking Gibson. Personally, if I were going to spend $2900, I'd prefer a TV J-45 or TVSJ.
  5. Thanks for posting that. A lot of those contraptions are downright laughable.
  6. Nice job :-) Perfect guitar for the job too.
  7. If you were seriously recording tracks, that would be nice to have.
  8. It can go straight into an amp, no preamp is required. I think the K&K preamp helps where you use a DI and need to bring the signal up closer to line level. Most guitar amps can deal with the raw pick-up signal. The Loudbox amps surely can.
  9. KYK Shows them on their website, here.
  10. I have a K&K Pure Mini in my TV Southerner Jumbo, and I play it through a Fishman Loudbox. I like it a lot, and it does not sound 'quacky' at all. Sounds better than the Fishman Matrix Infinity under saddle I used to have. And, it sounds better than the Fishman Neo (sound-hole magnetic unit). I like the fact that it is passive, and does not have any added electronics/battery in the guitar. Signal is plenty strong for the Loudbox preamps to handle. I don't gig so there is no feedback issues at all. I went with the vintage style end-jack that takes 1/8" plugs. Weird size, but it works for me and keeps a nice "un-modded" look to the TV. If I do another high-end Gibson, I'll go with another K&K Pure Mini. my 2¢
  11. My TVSJ was $2900, there are lots of more expensive guitars, and many less expensive. It's in the market price range.
  12. In relation to the capo market.
  13. Ridiculously over priced. I'll stick with my $8 Dunlop.
  14. My Fishman Loudbox can run off the K&K with no extra preamp, no problems at all. I don't gig, so feedback has never been an issue for me.
  15. Another vote for Joe Bonamassa. Might not have the classic rock mojo of these other guys, but dang, Joe plays the heck out of his Les Paul.
  16. I put a K&K Pure Mini in my 2009 TV Southern Jumbo. I like it very much. It's a peizo, but not quacky like the under-saddle pick-ups. I also like that fact that there are no batteries or other circuits in the guitar, so it is "minimally invasive". I would recommend it to others.
  17. Here's another SST on stage with the Doobie Bros.
  18. Seven: 1964 Gibson LG-1 1974 Penco A-12 (D-28 copy) Mexican Strat. Les Paul Classic Custom Gibson Southerner Jumbo TV (2009) Martin D-21 Special Fender Tim Armstrong Deluxe Acoustic (surprisingly nice)
  19. There are very nice. But, after playing my SJ for a while and picking up the D21, it feels a bit like playing the gridiron at Lambeau Field, LOL.
  20. I hate walking into a Guitar Center. It's always a complete bummer for me. Especially getting frisked on my way out the door. There is nothing I like about the place. Frankly, I just order the stuff on-line from Musiciansfriend (sister co.), Sweetwater, etc. Then, wait for the Wells Fargo Wagon to come be A Coming Down the Street.
  21. Oh man! Is this a troll thread LOL. I think it comes down to personal preference. Cream always looks good to me. Can it really effect value?
  22. Trusty Dunlop for me, thanks.
  23. True dat. Tacoma used to be fine guitars.
  24. Fender might just learn something about building guitars a luthier would be proud of.
  25. Thanks. I searched around and it was pretty much unanimous that auto paint would work, particularly a base coat/clear coat application. All I did that black strat was wash it, rough it up with 600 grit wet sandpaper, wipe it down and use a tacky-cloth to get all the grit off. Then, 4 coats of the PCP base color, and 4-5 layers a clear coat. Really happy and I'm looking for another one to do. It sounds like you have a solid plan with your daughter's guitar. Please post some pictures when it's done.
