  1. I've seen a couple other mentions of a few other's that are "partners". My question is, is this whole thing a result of the whole "play original" and threats/lawsuits of the brands that copy Gibson shapes? Does this just boil down to "we will take a fee and then allow you to use our shapes"??? NHTom
  2. I'm not really secret or weapon worthy, but I love my TC Spark Boost......I find it can do several simple things that are nice to have handy. Slight boost for leads, it can be an "always on" to fatten things up a bit, can dial it in for quite a bit of grit and yet leave the original tone fairly un-molested. NHTom
  3. Had the pleasure of playing a Jeff Beck prototype that Stevie D of Buckcherry had. Not sure if it was ever released to the public or not. That said, as far as the original question, the vary. I've heard of specific artists getting a small number of "prototypes" of their signature guitars with subtle differences for them to choose which one will be the final released model. NHTom
  4. I have a Laney Cub 12 and am very happy with it. I would also recommend the Blackstar HT5 NHTom
  5. The NHTom Signature model... Light aged lemon burst, Hum/P90 combo, ebony board, fairly traditional specs on the rest. NHTOM
  6. It is a Gibson branded version of a Kahler locking trem. I have one on an 84 Explorer. I personally love mine and prefer them to the Floyd Rose style, but I think most prefer the Floyds. As far as value goes...….and this is only my opinion, I'd have to say if anything it would decrease the value as most Les Paul fans seem to prefer the traditional stop bar/tune-o-matic set up over anything with a trem.

  7. I recently picked up a 2010LP Standard with a Nashville/tonepros roller and hated it. I went with the Faber ABRN bridge and I'm Thrilled with it. I used Faber's posts and it went together and set up like a dream. Great quality and I can't speak highly enough about it. Tom …..by the way...no shot against tone pro's. Well built, just not my thing...I will keep it around if I ever go bigsby.
  8. and since I can never leave well enough alone......got my Creamtone order in and "made it mine"...….. Got rid of the "classic" trc, and swapped the tuner buttons to vintage style while keeping the locking grovers. Also added a switch chip, amber toggle, vintage style knobs and pointers, pickguard, and pickup covers..... As soon as we see the sun around here, I will get some better daylight pictures. NHTom
  9. Well, that's that...…. Had to be done......lol. NHTom
  10. Interesting...I have an R8 with custom buckers and a 2010 standard with burst buckers and a harness upgrade. This is (in my opinion) a really accurate comparison. To my ears, they sound very similar, but the custom has just a hint more to it.....a bit more "open-ness" that I really like. Slightly better individual string definition. Glad to know the difference I hear with my own guitars isn't just my imagination. Either one is a GREAT pickup for sure. NHTom
  11. That would actually make sense.......they had a bunch of non-reverse firebirds that they said were for the japanese market.....
  12. It's at my local shop. I've played it at length and love it....all over but the paying at this point, just thinking it's odd that it doesn't match anything I've found listed. They always buy up "leftovers" "Odd releases", etc that gibson has to offer, so I'm going to assume it was some sort of spec'd model for a big box store or something. NHTom
