  1. Picked up a 1992 Samick-made Sheraton II in absolutely stunning condition for $300! Other than the normal patina on the gold hardware, this thing is near mint-not one ding! I had a 1989 model in high school and sold it when I graduated. Been looking for one for a while and oddly enough found this for sale on a Toyota Tacoma forum.
  2. I guess my best one is from Bryan Adams' "Somebody". I always thought he said "I passed out at Madonna's, when you walked in the room" I was almost right: "I thought I saw the Madonna, when you walked in the room". I mean, he was probably famous enough to be hanging out with Madonna in 1985 and passing out at her place...sounded reasonable!
  3. Its automatic only, therefore even if I wanted to drop the money on one I wouldn't. No manual, no sale for me! Sad to see the storied Corvette only available with a slushbox, flappy paddle shifters can piss off!
  4. Its definitely the same one. The tops were nowhere near as nicely flamed on the other 3 they had in stock. The top on this one is better than its supposed to be on this model.
  5. Just gave the guitar a body cavity search and yes, they are 2 wire pickups. I plan on leaving this one stock anyway. I built my SG with coil tapping options, so I can live without another tapped humbucker guitar. It sounds perfect as-is anyway.
  6. That sucks! I just got an identical one from Sweetwater and it was perfect. We were probably comparing the exact same guitars on their site!
  7. Got it today. Absolutely flawless and even better looking in person than in the photos Sweetwater sent. The weight is manageable, just a hair heavier than my Tele. Sounds great and the setup was perfect out of the box. Gibson is moving in the right direction!
  8. I'll be looking inside mine when it arrives next Monday!
  9. I've had 3 LPs over the last few years, a 2015 Deluxe, a 2016 Standard, and a 2018 Classic. I don't think I've kept one more than 8 months so far. I always felt like I couldn't justify keeping them in my collection. For the 2015, it was the potential depreciation due to the whacky specs that year (sold it while they were still the hot new thing before I took a big hit on it). For the 2016, it was the amount of money I had tied up into it, plus the fact that my SG does pretty much the same things a Les Paul does. For the 2018, it was the absurd weight (11 lbs), and the fact that the P-90s sounded like weak humbuckers instead of P-90s. I'm trying again this year. I was browsing Sweetwater and found the 2019 LP Standard '60s. I hadn't seen these before. Basically a classic spec. Standard but at a very reasonable non-Custom Shop price ($2500). The only difference between it and the regular Standard is the lack of fancy electronic switchwork and a AA top instead of AAA. I looked at the pictures of all the ones they had in stock (love how Sweetwater lets you see the actual guitars). I found one in Iced Tea Burst with a top that must have just barely been rejected for AAA during sorting. Its way better than any other top I've seen anywhere on these guitars. I had to buy it. I just hope I can bond with this one and finally keep a Les Paul in my collection permanently!
  10. Mesa does make some very versatile amps. I have a Lone Star Special 1X12 and it does everything I need a tube amp to do. The only other amp I feel like I need is a little Line 6 modeling amp that records straight into the computer and has half a billion searchable tones you can program in.
  11. I went through 4 sets of pickups in my 2014 SG before I settled on Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pros. A lot of it is personal preference, but that was finally the perfect tone for me.

  13. Looks like they got rid of the walnut color for 2019. I really wanted one. Guess I'll have to keep checking Reverb for a used 2018 to show up. I want that color to match my 6 string SG.
  14. I never found a PRS I bonded with. I've played plenty of them, but they just don't feel right to me. Hard to describe why, but it seems like a lot of people have that impression of them. The last one I played had an open grain neck finish that was lumpy and awful!
  15. So glad he's still with us. He was the "silent" member of The Band who contributed more than people realize.
