  1. Anyone know if Gibson is still using pcb's on new SG's. I am thinking of getting a 2011 Natural Burst SG but what to know before buying.
  2. My Explorer sounds great with my Marshall DSL 50
  3. Congrats! Please post pics of both guitars.
  4. I ran into this issue before. The problem was intonating with old strings and my action was too high. Only intonate with new strings! I put the saddles back to how they were. Luckly I could see the old spot becasue it was all shinny with no dust on it. Then with new strings I lowered my action a bit and redid the intonation. This time I found the sweetspot with room to spare.
  5. I say go for the Studio unless you don't want a chambered Les Paul. If you don't want a chambered Les Paul then get a Traditional but not the new Standards as they are chambered as well. Also try out an Explorer. Great Gibson tone at a fair price. I was looking for a Les Paul too but ended up loving the Explorer more... but that's just me.
  6. I am glad you figured out the issue. I would love if you would do a youtube video of the sound both clean and dirty. Very curious how BB's sound in an Explorer.
  7. Anyone know what the stock pickups that were put in the first 76 Reissue Explorer in 1990? Were they 496R/500T or something else?
  8. Cool. I'm glad they added the maple cap. Maybe all the stores are getting rid of there old stock first or maybe they didn't get the memo.
  9. Where are you located? Here is a flying V in Canada with the moon inlays http://ottawa.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-musical-instruments-guitars-Gibson-Flying-V-Faded-Mahogany-2002-W0QQAdIdZ255872483
  10. I vote green burst as well.
  11. Thanks for the input guys. I just didn't know if they felt awkward sitting down or not.
  12. I really want a flying V but I like to play sitting down allot. Is it hard to play sitting down compared to other Gibson’s? Unfortunately I can't find one to test in my town.
