  1. Sheesh forgot to post these pics here people and it's been quite a time but better late than never as they say! Mabe not to every ones taste but it plays and sounds just amazing! May I present my Jason Hook M4 Sherman https://flic.kr/s/aHsk8svCm8
  2. Ah yes I see ill try that out when I get 5 mins later thanks for the info on that dude!
  3. Tried uploading pictures 3 times today and it's not letting me? For some reason keeps saying file size to big when I attach it?
  4. Well they blew me away my explorer arrived yesterday so 4 days shipping door to door and the packing was superb! So DHL took it out of Germany and Parcel force collected it and dropped it to me in the U.K! Got it for 600 pound cheaper than last year at this time and got to say it plays like a dream the action is super low it's ace!I highly recommend them and will use them again next time, the guitar tech set it up for me just perfect to my request. Real nice guys I have to say and checked it from top to bottom before dispatch which I can't fault. So here's the beast anyhows as I vowed to get one of these after paying off my Firebird! :-)
  5. Well I've got the first tracking number and they said it will arrive in 2 or 3 days? But this tracking number does not work on the UPS tracking page so I'm under the assumption that DHL take it out of Germany and UPS pick it up in the U.K? But the code is not working on the DHL tracking either??? I'm quite puzzled to be fair?
  6. Has any one ever brought their new gibson from Thomann in Germany and shipped in to the U.K? If so when it's dispatched how many carriers does it pass through as in does it start with DHL and then get passed to UPS for the U.K or what? As the tracking no they gave me does not work on any of the Web tracking tools? What sort of time do they take to ship and are they outer boxed outside of the Gibson box??
  7. Funny you mention this as Lzzy Hale of Halestorm keeps hinting at a production model of her signiture white and gold hardware explorer but weather this will be a large or small run is still unknown or if it will see the light of day at all?
  8. I went through 4 bad paint jobs in white this time last year before I got a good one from Sheffield and the main problem on the white firebirds I looked at appart from a cracking in one body was marks that hadn't been polished out left by the DA sander like fine circles in the lacquer when held up to the light! Some of them were real rough! Is this a 2014 model your after dude?
  9. Hmmmm may have to check that out then thanks for your info dude!!
  10. Sweet guys thanks for all your input ive got a few packs of 10's but may check out some 11's at some point to see how they sound and play!!
  11. Yeah mine is just a tad buzzy on the top 2 strings but think its the nature of the bird as ive heard a few mention this to be fair dude!!??
  12. Now that sounds interesting Zebra i must say!! Do you get any string buzz on the top strings with those at all dude???
  13. Lol ace stuff i should have picked a couple packs up last week while i was there!!!
  14. So to all you Firebird players out there or owners around the world whats your strings of choise what make do you find offers you best sound on your Bird and what gauge are you using too?? Have you ever changed gauge?? And if so what were the results good or bad?? At the moment im finding Daddario 10's my string of choise but whats yours????
