  1. case will no doubt offer better protection .keeping them out of a case is pretty much a convenience thing and you need to pay attention to things ,such as where the guitar will be,are little kids around who could be horseplaying and damage it or how huimid is it,how much sunlight gets exposed to it,etc. I use mine alot and have most of them out in the open in my living room,hanging on the wall with string swing guitar hangers.I dust them and clean them regularily.I also use them frequently.If I am going to be gone for a while or people coming over ,I will take them down and put them in their cases.I have a rack made that the cases rest on horizontally.

    Cases are no doubt best protection,but if you trust those around you and keep eye on things ,its nice to have them readily available and in the open kind of.

  2. Gibson Les Paul Standard




    epiphone Les Paul Standard




    Notice the Gibson Logo on The Gibson guitar and the epiphone Logo on the Epiphone guitar.You can also distinguish other physical differences by comparing the photos if you look closely.


    Some people,when selling their used Epiphone will list it as a Gibson Epiphone Les Paul. Its just a way to mess with the buyers head and use th gibson name to make the guitar sound more valuable than it is to people like yourself,who may not be too familiar with them or know the difference.

    epiphone is owned by Gibson buy is not the same guitar.An epiphone which is not altered in any way will have the Epiphone logo on the headstock(top of the guitar) and is the easiest way for you to identify it.Same with Gibson.Some people do tey and alster guitars of either Epiphone or other brands to make them appear as if they were an actual Gibson,to sell them for more,often times in places such as craigslist or ebay,so if this is a concern,you should either post the phoo of the guitar here,so people can help you determine if it is authentic ,or send a photo to gibson customer service by going on the Gibson.com website and getting the email address.

    More info on both guitars can also be found at places such as guitarcenter.com,gibson.com,musiciansfriend.com.

    Good luck and hope it works out for you.

  3. I haven't been too active on any forums lately as I try to have an actual life now and then,but I just discovered the new forum where you can communicate directly to the CEO Henry.I was looking to register there but the registration seemed real invasive to me and I also didn't see it state anyplace that they keep your info private.

    Anyone join that forum and start receiving alot of spam emails or telemarketing phone calls soon thereafter?

  4. This is definately an off topic thread here but I am guessing someone here probably is knowledgeable with this.

    Looking into a wool coat like Dillinger wore.I am finding alot of coats with different wool content.Some are 100% wool content,some are 80% wool/20%polyester,or radon or other manmade fiber.First off,I ewas assuming that 100% wool or higher percentage of wool would be superior,but I may be wrong.By looking at prices ,I can't tell whats more of a demand as they go high and low for 1005 wool as well as for a blend.Coat I am looking at is 65% wool and remainder poly and rayon I think.

    Anyone here know about wool vs wool blends ,whats superior and why and reasons,I'd be interested in being informed and would appreciate any input.I have tried google and other searches and was unable to find the info I seek.

  5. Not a huge fan ,but don't hate his stuff.If it comes on the radio I might leave the station on.lol

    Music is music.as far as a skilled guitar player with great chops and memorable riffs,Neil Young doesn't come to my mind,but as far as his songs, and how the parts fit in with the song,it seems to work out.I guess you just have to like that type of style,which is unique indeed.

  6. I think people can post a reply or an opinion,even if not in favor or in agreement with the original post,and keep it tactful and respectful if they try.Its ok to disagree and have an opinion,but their thoughts could be conveyed without dissing the others posts,opinions,etc

  7. Mine hang on the wall as their home.

    I take off the hnagers and play them ,which is much more convienent than when they are cased.Looks nice on the wall as well.

    I have one off the wall right now as i am using it,but come sundown I will hang it by its neck.
