  1. Thanks for the explanation! Notes
  2. "Night Mood" - Brazilian Jazz standard by Ivan Lins - I like the Mark Murphy version a lot.
  3. I really liked my GFS Mean 90s. One of the pups was reverse polarity / reverse wired, so in those rare situations where it was noisy, I could just flip the switch to engage both pickups. With on RP/RW it acted like a giant humbucker. Sure the tone was compromised, but it saved the gig. The Mean 90s are a little brighter than the P90s on my ES-330. That's neither good nor bad as a tone control can fix that. Although I loved the Mean 90s, I had problems with the guitar. It was a bottom-of-the-line LTD faux LP. It was built well, the neck was fast but too thin for my hands. I got it in a trade for some of the software I write for Band-in-a-Box so I didn't lose any money on the deal, and it was my first guitar mod project with the Mean 90s. The P-90 sound of the P-Rails is good. About as close to a real P90 as the mean 90s are. I don't have the LTD any more so I can't do a direct comparison. Notes
  4. I have two guitars with P90s and one with Duncan P-Rails (P90/rail/humbucker) and I used to have one with GFS Mean 90s. On the gig I use the P-Rails, but they sit in the P90 position about 95-99% of the time. If I use both pickups in the rail mode, it has the Fender tone, and I use the rails or bridge humbucker for a couple of songs. I think I use them just to justify their existence. By sliding the two little switches I can get P90, Rail, Series Humbucker or Parallel Humbucker. It's a Swiss Army Knife of Pickups. The P90 sounds very good, as does the humbucker and although the Rail sounds decent, the output is low but the volume knob is near my pinky finger. There is also a Piezo pickup under the bridge for acoustic sounds. Using the third knob I can blend the piezo with the mags and get some extra jangle/twang into the tone. Or with the second toggle switch I can use only the piezo, but it really doesn't sound full enough to replace an flat-top sound. It's think like an arch top. Notes.
  5. Yes Thanks !!! I'm down to 51% capacity from my 99% Thee posts I tried to delete the entire post but the attachment remains. https://forum.gibson.com/topic/154127-piano-for-sale/?do=findComment&comment=2012084 https://forum.gibson.com/topic/154830-anyone-heard-from-digger-lately/page/4/?tab=comments#comment-2024898 https://forum.gibson.com/topic/147433-the-new-forum-format-sucks/?do=findComment&comment=1992890 And one more still live post I didn't mention on my previous post. https://forum.gibson.com/topic/148007-spdt-onoffon-switch-needed-where-can-i-get-one/?tab=comments#comment-1997715 I appreciate you going out of your way for that. I wish there was a way I could do it myself. That way when it gets full again, I won't have to take your or anyone else's time. Thanks again Notes
  6. Thanks. It's bookmarked. It looks like a good work-around. Now if I can only figure out how to do it. 😄 Notes So far the embed code doesn't work, and neither does the share. I tried just pasting the links and using the "insert other media" option. I haven't signed in for an account, and hope I don't need to.

Thanks. Notes
  8. Thanks mihcmac I can get that far, but when I get to that page, I can see the attachments. But there is no delete button, right-clicking doesn't work, and I can delete the post the picture was on by right clicking on that, but the picture still remains in my attachment folder. I've tried it on Firefox, Chrome and Opera browsers.
  9. Thanks y'all. Sgt.Pepper: There is a 500kb limit on the attachments you upload. ksdaddy: I tried that, and I can delete the post, but the picture stays in my attachments folder. I didn't see any way to edit and remove the picture either. SteveFord: I could upload to my website and link but I'd rather just drag and drop. Drag and drop takes a few seconds, uploading and linking takes a few minutes. Appreciate the help, but they are still there. Now it's a real mystery ;) Notes
  10. I'd like to post a couple of pictures, but my attachment allotment is 99% full. I'd like to be able to delete the pictures I uploaded way back in 2019 to make room to upload something newer, but I can't figure out how to do it. If anyone knows, I'd appreciate the tip. Thanks Notes
