  1. Sure Duane, thanks. I rarely go to the Acoustic Forum, but I'll check it out after you move it.
  2. Thanks for the info. Kidblast, it's Santo, not Santos. No biggie, I get that all the time. 😃 I was thinking the same thing about it always being that way... I never tapped on the neck before. As far as environment, it is always in my air conditioned or heated house (not in the basement), and almost always in the case. Dave F. this is exactly what I am hoping for. I'll let you know when I hear back from my local Luthier.
  3. I have a Michael Kelly Acoustic / Electric. I noticed some buzzing around the 5th fret. Took it to a Luthier to have it checked out, along with some bridge issues. He held the guitar up and tapped the back of the neck, and it rattled. He said the truss rod is loose, probably detached. Has anyone ever run into this before? Could it possibly just need a truss rod adjustment? Hoping he doesn't have to remove the fretboard to re-attach the truss rod. Could this be a manufacturing defect? Could the truss rod work that loose over three years? Could the truss rod actually break after never being touched, just sitting in the case 99.9% of the time? Curious to see any comments, thanks.

    Beautiful. Only difference from mine is the color. I assume it has the '57 Classic and '57+ Classic Pups.
  5. I don't see how it is called Trans Black finish but it looks great anyway... congrats.
  6. I've always liked the look with the "chip" on. I think it looks more vintage.
  7. Congrats on the new Gold Top. I'm in the same boat as you with my Les Paul. I should request they bury it with me too.

  9. Well that was fun... I enjoyed it enough that I didn't even stop to play Freecell during my lunch break. I have a weight relieved Les Paul Classic Antique. It's a Gibson, so I consider it a real Les Paul. Maybe he should have started out with, any company besides Gibson that claims to make a Les Paul is really not a Les Paul. But that probably wouldn't have been as much fun.
  10. Love the story Sparquelito... Are you a Romance Novelist? If not, you should be...
  11. My Les Paul has '57 Classic in the neck and '57+ Classic in the bridge. My style is RUSH and '70's Classic Rock with a little blues mixed in. I might add, like some others in this forum, I don't modify my guitars (except for the Speed Knobs vs. Top Hats and Locking Strap Buttons). When I buy the guitar, if it doesn't sound and feel right, I look for another one.
  12. Must be something new they started doing. I didn't get a baby picture with mine, but that was 9-years ago. Gosh has it been that long?
