  1. I have a mix of moderately expensive and cheaper guitars. After upgrading the pickups and electronics, I don't notice any real difference in tone or playability between my Epiphone SG (technically G-400) and my Gibson SG. I did plop down a good chunk of change recently for a built-to-spec G&L bass. That expenditure was worth it in my opinion to get the exact color, neck, frets, pickguard, wood, and inlays that I wanted. My $600 MIM Fender Jazz Bass played and sounded just as good.
  2. With the sale of my Fender Mexican JB, all of my Fender-type guitars are now G&L. I had a string of bad luck with American made Fenders.
  3. My custom ordered G&L Fullerton Deluxe JB finally arrived today after a 4 month wait! Gotta say it was worth it! I spec'd it with a basswood body, surf green gloss, vintage tint maple neck/fingerboard with mother of pearl block inlays, body-matched headstock, and pearloid pickguard. The price was pretty reasonable for a special order. I covered most of it by selling my Gibson EB-5 and Mexican Fender Jazz Bass. Some might think it's over the top, but I love it!
  4. Found another one on Reverb listed as an "SG Special Limited Edition" in Blue Mist. Listed for $1100 plus shipping in less than great condition and people seem to be interested in it. $850 might not be too bad an asking price, but then again the one on Reverb could be overpriced. https://reverb.com/item/37872507-gibson-sg-special-limited-edition-2008-blue-mist
  5. I got mine super early since I'm a first responder. I think my first shot (Pfizer) was 12/21. My arm hurt the next day like any other shot, but no other ill effects.
  6. 7 guitars, not including a custom built bass I just ordered. 2 amps, one tube and one SS.
  7. Oddly enough I've never managed to keep a Les Paul more than 6 months. I think I've had 4 Gibsons and an Epiphone (might have kept the Epi closer to a year).
  8. I have a vintage 1994 Fender Medium pick in the highly desirable tortoiseshell option!
  9. I coil split the pickups in my SGs, but on the neck I reverse wired it. You get the screw coil when you split it so it sounds more like a Tele neck pickup.
  10. What's brown and sounds like a bell? DUNG!
  11. Nope. Moved near Albuquerque. Got sick of the winters and being forced to live in employee housing. Bought my own place again finally.
  12. Haven't been on here much lately, but doing well!
