  1. My dad's 1951 ES 300 (now my brother's) is the first guitar I played . It too needs knobs as 1 of the original got lost due to the post hole deterioration causing a loose fit. The remaining 2 were damaged from glue being used to keep them on . I looked for the original style, can't find them anywhere . They are deep barrel knobs (gold) with no set screw or splines . I drilled out some Les Paul knobs to fit but had to touch up the paint after drilling. I used black knobs to make color match up easy . Not ideal but they worked .
  2. The weirdest experience at a concert for me was 6 years ago at a Cheap Trick show at a local casino . After the show , I was in the washroom washing my hands when I heard someone behind me say " That was a great show tonight " Thinking a member of Cheap Trick was in there . I turned around and saw a guy standing there (not a band member) I looked at the guy at the sink beside me and he looked puzzled also . Then the guy behind me says " You guys sounded really good tonight " . I looked at him again and asked "Are you talking to me" ? He says yes and repeats the compliment . I told him I wasn't in the band , and he replies "That wasn't you up on stage" ? I say no and he bolts out . The other guy and me got a chuckle out of it . I meet up with my wife and she wanted to have a beer before we went home so I tell her what happened and we go into one of the bars in the casino . I sit down at a table and she goes the bar to grab the drinks. Then a young girl comes up to me and says " You're the bass player in Cheap Trick right" ? I said " What is this , some kind of joke"? She says no and sounded all hurt so I tell her she's the second person that thought I was in the band . I had a hard time convincing her I wasn't but she finally left. My wife comes with the drinks and tells me another girl at the bar (who was sitting at the table beside us) also getting drinks asked her if I was in Cheap Trick . My wife told her " yeah but keep it quiet" . So I'm sitting there and notice the people at the next table kept looking over and smiling and taking pictures of each other, making sure to get me in the background . I wasn't feeling comfortable with this so I told my wife "Lets get out of here". As we're leaving a guy from that table comes over to me , extends his hand and says " I just want to say you guys put on a good show tonight " . I just said "Thanks man" , shook his hand and we left.
  3. Nice ! If I were to get another LP or any Gibson for that matter(and if price wasn't a factor ,they list for $5400 up here in Canada)it would be one of these , with a late 60's style Flying V a close second . My first electric was a Cort set neck V and I kinda always wanted a real one still almost 40 years latter😊
  4. I also saw him as John Cougar backing up Heart in 82 at Castle Farms Music Theater in Charlevoix Mi.($12.00 ) Did'nt even know who he was at the time but he was great . Never really got into his music though.

  9. I would just get genuine Gibson parts if you want to be sure. Here's a link to a site in Canada . ( - 20% for U.S. prices) https://www.long-mcquade.com/?page=departments&DepartmentsID=113&FilterBrand=237
  10. I replaced a bridge on a 347, not sure what year it was but it was the stock Nashville bridge in gold. It also had a brass nut. I replaced the black knobs with gold. Here's some pics.
  11. Not quite yet here. I just took this pic out my front window. Good news is our local ski hill is still open. When it's time, I ride this. 2012 Street Glide.
  12. "Wow that looks fantastic! Bet it sound nice too, funny thing that speaker was on my "too look at" list too. But in the end the Jensens do a great job." It was between this and a Jensen. Would have liked a Weber also but they're not as easy to find in Canada.
  13. I also happened to change a speaker in my Champ a couple of days ago. Much better then the import generic speaker that I had in it
