  1. With those "blonde" boards? I'm not so sure. . .
  2. I had Joe sign my Epi JBLP on the body with a black Sharpie. It looks great and should last on the poly finish. Also had my son's pick guard signed with a gold paint Sharpie. It too turned out great. Having the artist sign their signature model just makes sense to me.
  3. ES-335 Alex Lifeson signature model. I'll take 2 white ones please.
  4. Definitely check out the Boss ME-70. It's excellent (sound, ease of use, durability, efficiency). I've tried a few different ones and owned a couple of others (Digitech, Line-6) and am completely satisfied with the Boss.
  5. I would definitely buy an Alex Lifeson model. The tones he coaxed out of his during late 70s and early 80s concerts made me a fan forever. Epiphone - make this happen. It would be successful without a doubt.
  6. Motor City Guitar in Waterford, MI has had a honeyburst on the wall for almost a week now. First time I've seen one on the wall at all.
  7. Satin ebony studio has uncovered 490T & 498R pickups. I'm not sure about the maple cap though. My 2009 seems to have the exact same grain to the wood both front and back. Also, the satin finish is not very thick or durable. My strap rubbed through the finish on the top and bottom edge in a couple of small spots. The wood color showing through seems too dark on the top to be maple. Top and bottom seem to be the same. This is confusing because the model is called Les Paul Studio Mahogany in Satin Ebony, but the Gibson website says it has a maple top. That makes no sense. Why would it be called Mahogany if it had a maple top like the normal Studio? I think the maple reference is in error. You can check out the link below for Gibson's "official" specifications. http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Les-Paul/Gibson-USA/Les-Paul-Studio-Mahogany.aspx
  8. Studio satin ebony is not a model of the Studio 50's Tribute series with the P-90 pickups. Rather it's part of the Studio Mahogany series with the "worn" finishes but exclusive to GC and has 490R/498T pickups I bought mine in 2009 and GC was throwing in a hardshell case. Gibson website now references a gig bag, so maybe the hardshell case deal is over.
  9. Thanks. Yellow seems more prominent on mine than most of the other CSB's posted in this thread. Kind of surprises me. I've had this for a little less than 2 years and paid quite a bit more than what I saw them going for when still in production. Should have bought it sooner!
  10. 2007 CSB. It's a cellphone pic, but turned out pretty well. Mineral streaks are more visible in person. Standard Faded tops have much more "character" than most LP's. Great guitars. I also have a 2009 "GC exclusive" satin ebony Studio which qualifies as a faded. No pics at the moment.
