  1. I have never played another guitar that sounds/feels as good as my '99 '57 Historic. My only complaint is that it seems to get a little heavier every year ;)
  2. OK - suspicions confirmed!!
  3. Or are you folks still telling each other the same old lies? ;)
  4. I much prefer what you got to the ad version. The one you got looks like the Trampis Green of the PRS SE ZM, which I have one of. If you are really disappointed, we can trade straight up. I have ordered two guitars online. Both from Sweetwater who posts actual pics of their guitars. Both times the guitar in hand was a perfect match to the ad pics
  5. I paid close to that for a '14 Studio Pro ... Where did you say that is again?
  6. Saw a couple of nice 15s in my local shop today. Owner said make an offer, but be careful or I might end up with one I didn't think I'd get. If I didn't already have 2 Gibby LPs and a PRS LP-style I would be all over the honeyburst trad he has. Tuners and nuts can be changed. I haven't tried a '15 neck though
  7. What key is Sweet Home Alabama in? [flapper]
  8. I've had good success on minor scratches with Virtuoso cleaner, followed with their polish
  9. I love me some railroad tie frets
  10. I hate to quote myself, but this really is the crux for me. Play first. What sounds great may or may not fit with rules or theory. If it doesn't, they'll call it "borrowing" in the minor cases and "jazz" in the extremes - LOL!
  11. Whatever the key is - the tune is a classic. Ya gotta respect the Stones even if you don't love them.
  12. It's all about what we're accustomed to seeing. The below (which I think is accurate) shows the sequence in both C Major and A Minor. In both cases the E chord is altered from the norm from minor to major, as a dominant 7th. They both obviously sound the same as they are identical in practice. To ME, a vi III7 V IV IV I ii I vi is more "normal" (whatever that means) than i V7 VII VI VI III iv III i. To be perfectly clear, I'm not claiming one is more correct than the other. This is more an interesting exercise in picking fly dung out of pepper - an exercise in exercising theory &
  13. I love this tool. And the User's Guide is worth studying as well.
