    The Recording does have a built in transformer, but to hear all of the features that make the guitar unique you need to use a transformer chord with the transformer as close as possible to the amp. Flipping the switch to low impedance. If it is a Personal or a Professional, you would have very low output without the transformer chord.
  2. Amazon also carries it from the same vendor..... https://www.amazon.com/Knox-Gear-Electric-Guitar-Case/dp/B01BCQ12C0/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=knox+gear+guitar+case&qid=1584834955&sr=8-2
  3. I prefer the Gator case, but if you are looking for a cheaper option this Knox case works also..... Not quite as much clearance for the headstock as the Gator, but a good fit. A friend of mine bought four of these guitars & bought these cases for them. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Knox-Gear-Electric-Guitar-Hard-shell-Protective-Carrying-Case/362368388598?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item545ed6cdf6:g:lIwAAOSwHSNdiUNh&enc=AQAEAAACUBPxNw%2BVj6nta7CKEs3N0qXCx%2BBpvCSYqtgjR78I9TJO3nV58DqHWzSSz%2F51QXxKqU71Kqw0z2bhyzWDFNtU1eJLTOCC9YAii73E%2BG53bSrzIqdPAE8WfiT21T1pCXY%2BNaHp%2Bihfyopc%2ByNsmBP7qWHEg5KstReGMo9NOKvArI%2BtnXTc3YDvan2Op44pyVFB1YAz2iNd2PO6QDzieBLsd%2FefLZ2e2y58hVsnz4QjOVGKhAiQMM4Pbkob9R9FChY%2B9gflFX4yE3R6QaDzf0iKvSG2f4WQPGu2dK3Fpr9RIIMgniBLGuizmQOAcregjAYx1V31tQENCXPhwApvwCV62FveIyg2cqAcfS%2Beb60eB4izAgwH4o33AB6nuC4RGOoGMN6igeXnzWL0SmsMwFBYaIwLamoAcNO%2Bpp1vOZljS%2B81uURLCsu%2Bdr2UniO7qTGoMWsvGEwTtPDTNAF4hngPxlGtZCYuMJZlcuKyi0XpMKjGzCWZzWrNvjH%2BgkbQOA%2BcJMqzAKn6NqNWCUSD8UL9SrmpPM%2BhydYkfqzI%2FhdeUA2u6tWcSgdaFamV7MlJBvjNtuVmYyx75uHYOlDYOzYb1V2RSiSgd%2B4jiHmrOfhIIQthNWTXEhSKIQLapb2sYQymKJmJePDpJbJI%2BbWA1EuSvGCjKY45T37dNyoboZXk6WRR2uMj%2FWAaGKZiVJH9yMxZiIpwly6abKdDp3nj%2FiL8rig08ovp6YP1GW2mWhEZGTo0F2Fj9OyBPacig2xvgoASa179iI2TwmSSB1BIUrEepcE%3D&checksum=362368388598a2ec0351b0e24bc79461dc4f63763179
  4. Just received my second warranty registration form back as not deliverable, so it wasn't Post Office error..... I registered them online with no issues.
  5. https://www.chicagomusicexchange.com/listing/gibson-usa-les-paul-special-tribute-dc-worn-white-wtortoise-pickguard-cme-exclusive/29536503 The price is dropping at CME.
  6. I’m going to get a 2nd one of these for the guitar, after I get my Reward points from MF from buying the bass. Should knock another $50 off or so. Just have to wait 45 days. I hate the gig bags!
  7. I’ve noticed that they hum less also. I have one amp that must be “higher gain” than the others. I get some hum if I get too close. Otherwise remarkably little or no hum. They must be doing a better job of shielding.
  8. It was a P.O. Box in Nashville. I just put a stamp on it & sent it off....... This was for the bass, I sent another out for the six string Jr on Saturday. I’ll see if that one comes back also, It could be a Postal error.
  9. Oddly enough, the warranty card I sent in was returned to sender...... Did Gibson close more locations than Memphis?
  10. A Pair of Jr’s The six string showed up yesterday, it played well right out of the box. The Gig Bag has to go........
  11. I just pulled the trigger on a blue stain JR. I bought it from Guitar Center online. I would have liked to see it first, but they are selling out fast!
  12. The Special at my local GC was about the same color, it sold right away. For the closeout price, you can’t beat it! Great guitar!
  13. Guitar Center sold that one for $189. There were several versions on line. I think one was $169. I don’t really know what the difference was..... The first thing I did to mine was remove the cloth cover.
  14. The bass fit great! It could use a little more padding under the end of the body, but that can be easily remedied. It fit better than I hoped with more extra room than I thought it would have. I feel fortunate to find something this close to fitting.
