    M&A ... hum, not Mergers & Acquisitions but Music & Adventure, scotch singles and blends
  1. Hank, I have an RD Standard, not an Artist so no active electronics. I did put a set of EMG 80/81's in it for a while. They fit in without issue. I put a battery box into the back cover plate. Fantastic guitar for metal at that point. However, I have since taken them out and put in a set of Gibson 490R/T. Much better for blues and classic rock. Great guitar, but very heavy.

  2. Hi Greg, i read you put emg pickups on a 77RD artist, is that simple to fix in the guitar ? Is there room enough, i guess yes but just want to be sure, i love the design of the guitar but want to get rid of this odd electronics . Hpw it is to play ? The neck ? With your emg ? Sounds ok ? Thank you for sharing your experience :)

  3. Well ... It should not happen with a good vine :)
  4. mines both electrics and acoustics are definitely in their case, i have no room enough to let them out all anyway but most of all ... i cant stand dusty guitar, especially in the headstock, i d rather spend 3 seconds ore even 30 seconds (depending where they are) looking for a guitar somewhere in my place ... the most often played are in my music room anyway (all the acoustics actually)
  5. Fantastic ! How does she sound pluged ? Good ? I am hesitating between same one and true vintage only acoustic (1992) cant make my mind :)
  6. Well thank you guys, i think i made my mind and will go for the new modern classic i played instead of getting the 92 vintage... (It is overseas and i cannot try) the new one here in france sounds good, really good I prefer to buy a vintage guitar only if i play it before I will try to find another sex toy for my axes in sears catalogue anyway :)
  7. Exactly ! What the hell is this ?
  8. That´s a very good thought actually... I never asked myself where playing only one guitar would lead my musical identity ... I own guitars also because i love the items, i consider them as pieces of art, when i started geting enough money to buy good guitars i did with the idea to look like my favorite artists (both sound and look)... Then with time i get experience and more personality and i tend to agree with your idea of focusing on core and i would add : focusing on identity (our idientity) Look at jamey johnson, he hits the road and record great album with a used and abused epiphone g
  9. Hi there I am considering buying a 1992 J200 standard vintage but i hesitate between this pure acoustic model and a brand new J200 standard modern classic... Because of the pickup... I really dont know how the 1992 will sound with a pick up and frankly the new one sounds quiet good. If anyone has been trough a pick up instalation on a j 200 please share with me your experience an the results on your guitar If i decide to go for the 1992 one i beleive i ll go for a fishman but i have another question guys, i really dont know what are those black round plates that cover the rosace We se
  10. Thanx Juan Carlos, i get the point now. that's actually right what you say, i never realized some of the special issues are not in the regular catalogue ! many tanx
  11. hi there i would like to understand more about custom shop acoustic models. I have crossed a very nice southern jumbo true vintage which is stamped with the custom shop logo behind the headstock. what is the difference between custom shop and non custom shop acoustic i hope the experts around this forum would gently explain all about those marketing segments :) tanx in advance Hank
