  1. This is my oxblood - had it for about 2 years. Heavy but what a sweet sounding guitar. I play it through a blues deluxe.
  2. My Les PPaul is the Jeff Beck "OXBLOOD" finish so I guess that I'll always have blood on mine!! LOL#-o
  3. Anyone here have any idea where I can get an explorer pickguard in plain black?? Thanks
  4. You must all remember that Gibson arent in business to make guitars - they are there to maximise the profits for their greedy shareholders. If discontinuing models so that they can introduce more models and lower the quality and get more schmucks to buy their crap makes money then you have your answer.
  5. Just bought one of these cllassics, and also fi nd the tone a bit limp. Anyone know if I can put a set of Angus Youngs in there without too much woodwork required?
  6. Have any of you tried the Eminence cables? I got one included in my David Gilmour signature and it's the best sounding cable every - beats Monster into a cocked hat! By the way the strange situation of spending thousands on a guitar and a few bob on a cable is also true of Hi Fi and home theatre. People will spend HUGE amounts of money on the best equipment but wire the speakers up with bell wire and use Radio Shack interconnects ! ! ! Madness in my opinion. As a rule you should spend about 10% of the value of your equipment on connections. Now if that were true of guitars..................

    Hello All

    I like a bunch of other bands too. Pink Floyd, Deep purple, Hendrix, Blur, Eric Clapton, Red hot Chilli PEppers, Jeff Beck, Led Zepplin. The list goes on - and on. In fact the only music I dont really like is ©RAP. So the Oxblood is just a great sounding guitar, and let's face it - when you have your distortion turned up 99% and high volumes, and phasers, and all the other effects who notices anyway? LOL

    Hello All

    Go here for a very old video clip of Mr Beck playing his oxblood: - I love the pink pants and velvet jacket - my dad wore that stuff when he was playing in England in the 60's !

    Hello All

    Thanks for your reply and spot on with the description, although there is also a school of thought that Jeff's Oxblood was once a goldtop that was refinished? ? ? The colour is indeed quite strange going from black when the light is not bright through to a very deep burgundy colour in bright sunlight (oxblood in the moonlight as you say) - although I'll pass on seeing the real thing! By the way - I dont know how the poll got in there it's my first post on this forum so I guess I got finger trouble!
