  1. For a little less money, you could track down one of these... http://www.gibson.com/en%2Dus/Divisions/Gibson%20USA/Guitar%20of%20the%20Week/LP%5FClassic%5FCustom%2DWeek%5F28/
  2. Yes, binding most certainly affects the tone. It affects it just as much as what material your strap is made out of.
  3. I hope that's not the photo he's using to advertise the 335 because that's MY photo of my sunburst 339 that I photoshopped into a silverburst about 6 years ago.
  4. Okay. Well I guess I'm not able to express my opinion unless I agree with the OP that Marshall amps are the t!ts. I guess it's true what they say... Opinions are like a$$holes, everybody else's stinks.
  5. I have four SGs. A Classic, a Junior (the regular production one from a few years ago, not the Custom Shop), a Standard with P90s and a '61 Les Paul Custom reissue with a Maestro. You can certainly feel the difference even with your eyes closed. It's hard to say as far as sound because my other three all have P90s, but it's a notch above my Les Paul and that's really saying something. Having said all that, it's up to you to decide if it's worth the extra money. I got mine in a trade for an amp that I had about $2300 into. Would I have paid $3500 plus for it? Probably not, but only because I don't have that kind of cash to throw around on one guitar.
  6. Kinda' remind you of anything? Gibson would probably stand a much better chance with this lawsuit than the whole "single-cut" thing.
  7. Not to derail the thread... I don't know where you are in Canada, but I pay nowhere near Gibson list price. Most shops are the same as the Musician's Friend prices and I've even gotten a few cheaper.
  8. Jimmy Page recorded some of his most iconic riffs on a Supro.
  9. Well, it's not a Gibson IIf you had just googled "Zapp guitar", you would have found the info you were looking for. It's a cheap Japanese copy, likely from the '70s or '80s. It might actually be a cool guitar but probably isn't worth much more than $100 to $150. If you post pics, we could tell you more. In the future, as a general rule, Gibson guitars usually say Gibson on the headstock.
  10. There's another great forum that a lot of members here also frequent. www.mylespaul.com They have a MUCH more active classifieds section and with the knowledge level of the members there, a price in the $10,000 plus range isn't going to scare anyone like it might on craigslist.
  11. I have a 2001 Classic Plus in Trans Amber. Inside the bridge pickup cavity is "LPCP" for Les Paul Classic Plus and the neck pickup cavity has "TA" for Trans Amber. In all my experience, the markings usually indicate model and color. I've never heard any instances of batch numbers. Yours was probably destined to be some sort of 58 at one point.
  12. The few times I've tried a Marshall, it just hasn't really done anything for me. It's great if you want "that Marshall sound", but I like an amp with a little more versatility.
  13. February 29th, 1996. The first and fifth digits are the year. Digits 2, 3 and 4 (060) are the day of the year. Since 1996 was a leap year, the 60th day was February 29th. The 534 is the production number. Anything over 300 (since 1990) indicates it was built at the Nashville plant.
  14. Sounds like something Pete Townshend would have done to a '70s Deluxe.
