  1. This is similar to the top-wrapping argument. Ultimately there's two points of contact, the bridge and the nut and the string has to be a certain tension to remain in tune so I really don't think there is much of a difference. I'd like to a double blind study to see if people can tell the difference between normal stoptail, top-wrapped tail and a re-located stoptail.
  2. The techs employed by GC are notoriously bad. Now that the guitar has had some time to adjust, take it to a reputable tech to set it up. SGs are very lightweight, and have pretty slim necks. There is quite a bit of give to the neck also because of how far down the neck joins with the body. I'm not sure where you live, but where I am, it has gotten quite cold and dry quite fast the past few weeks. That change in temp and humidity may be contributing to some of the issues too.
  3. Not sure what to make of the gray headstock. The Gibson on the TRC makes sense for 2002, I know my Epi from 2001 has the Gibson TRC. any pictures would be great. Thank you dee M.

    I think it's a neat idea but guitar players are weird people...we don't like anything digital built into guitar and we don't like solid state amps. We want tubes and huge pedal boards full of analog pedals. :)
  5. Alpine White nitro definitely yellows over the years. My 2006 LP studio isn't quite 'yellow' yet but it is certainly on its way.
  6. To piggyback here, I bought an old hard-shell briefcase from a garage sale for like $3, removed everything inside, removed the hinges and added clasps, added the soft Velcro to the inside and bought a 1-Spot. I'll take a picture when I get home, but it fits like 6-8 pedals depending on size and is real cheap and compact.
  7. They also started the year with a record of around 19-31. What a season! The Astros are a win-at-all costs organization and I think that shows with the background and behavior of some of their coaches and players so it is nice karma to see the Nats stick it to 'em! Tough to root for the Astros after the way their coaching staff treated female members of media. Just trash.

    I think the official explanation is that those guitars had defective parts. Anyway, best of luck!

    I'm hoping the affordable price was $0! There was a video and news story just a few weeks ago about Gibson just junking their inventory of these Guitars. https://www.metalsucks.net/2019/08/01/watch-a-few-hundred-gibson-firebird-x-guitars-get-run-over-by-a-bulldozer/ Judging from that, I'm not sure if Gibson still supports the guitar, may want to reach out to their customer service directly.
  10. I'm a little late to the party, but My Bloody Valentine's shoegazey whammy style is fun to play.

    I hate the toggle switch location on the Les Paul from a player perspective, but from a purely cosmetic standpoint, it looks really dumb next to the knobs.
  12. I hear there's a nice local Brewery in Bristol. Tennessee or Kentucky is where I will end up retiring too as well. Truly God's country down there.
  13. How many Guitars you up to GG? Do you have a family pic?
