  1. Interesting. I have read a lot of interviews with Dave Mustaine over the years, but have rarely seen him on film like that. Seems like a nice guy. A nice guy trying to put his grandkids thru college. 😛
  2. Well, you can't beat that deal with a stick! In that case, the pedigree of the guitar probably doesn't matter so much. If the playable-fretboard stretch of the neck is true, and not warped or twisted, then you have a great foundation upon which to resurrect The Phoenix of all old SG's. Sounds like a labor of love, and a lot of good karma going on there. Bravo. 🙂
  3. Heavily repaired and modified is right. It's like a 1967 Buick Wildcat that has an Oldsmobile engine, Pontiac hubcaps, major frame damage, and sketchy wiring. What do they want for that thing anyway? Just curious. 😗
  4. I'm jaded, so my opinion is of little value. If it seems too good to be true, it probably isn't. And since there has been an EXPLOSION of fake Gibson Les Pauls all across the internet, I don't trust anything found online anymore. My goal now is to never, ever buy another guitar that I don't hold, play, inspect, and fondle, in-person first. Ever again. Unless it comes from Sweetwater. Then I might trust it. 😑
  5. I have long fancied installing roller nuts and roller bridge pieces on at least one of my guitars, but for some reason I have never pulled the trigger on that project. Seems like it would have to be better for the strings to go across rollers rather than hard edges and stick-worthy bone or plastic. 😬
  6. They are way ahead of the rest of the guitar makers on this technology. 😐
  7. Our opinions are all over the place, which is to be expected. I, for one, love the original look. Stark contrast of black and white, sublime. And I'm not a fan of the SG pick guards, at all, so the naked, unadorned look was right up my alley. Okay, I'm gonna shut up now. 🤔
  8. "Mom, I have nut issues." "I know, Timmy. Go talk to your father about it though, okay? I have issues of my own." 😑
  9. The sun came out today. My van got a much-needed cleaning and polishing with carnauba wax. The motorcycle got some love too, and I rode her out and about a bit, avoiding the lingering patches of ice and snow. 🙂

  11. And for the record, that bad-a$$$ ukulele would be this motorcycle: 😜
  12. In the example of your above posting, simply remove the [img] and the [/img] from the beginning and end. Imgur calls this (when you copy from their menu) the Direct Link. Then, paste directly into the text of your posting, like so.
