  1. Ha ha ha, good stuff!! In my professional world, an LAO is a flight called a Local Area Orientation. You take somebody out flying to show them the traffic pattern, necessary radio calls to the air traffic control agencies, significant landmarks and reporting points, and hazards. But in this case, it's the artist's initials. Our girl singer and painter/potter/glass crafter is Lisa Ann O'Neil. LAO. She signs it in all her works of art and paintings, and recently added a circle when she etches it into ceramic creations. She had signed the back of the guitar in very small font when she first did the gecko. I simply gave her a larger billing by scrawling her symbol on the front there with a Sharpie. 😛 Here's the artist in real life.
  2. Or more like an Anime cartoon. (I know I said I was going to shut up now, but this one just slipped out.) 😌
  3. This is going to sound weird, but I kind of like it. Looks mystical and intriguing, like abstract sleeve tattoos. Okay, I'm gonna shut up now. 😐
  4. I'm not sure I understand the question. 😐
  5. Did you say you need one wired conductor? 😁
  6. Okay, so the Slick guitar has been holding up just fine. And she still sounds killer-great. And I have sold off a few more guitars in the past month. The Slick remains, so she must be a keeper. But the front of the thing struck me as a bit bland. So a few months ago, our girl singer painted a gecko on there for me. And today I used some masking tape and pin-striping tape and gave her racing stripes. And a sporty Mr. Horsepower sticker. Okay, I'm gonna shut up now. 😐 (The original state of affairs....)
  7. Now, if I were to buy a used ebony SG, I would go for this 1997 model. I do so love the naked pickups, much more than the chrome covered ones. And only eight hundred-fiddy bones. 🙂 https://reverb.com/item/38322047-gibson-sg-1997-ebony?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=7276534768&utm_content=campaignid=7276534768_adgroupid=83071981320_productpartitionid=891689877040=merchantid=240048658_productid=38322047_keyword=_device=c_adposition=_matchtype=_creative=391708917119&gclid=Cj0KCQiA3Y-ABhCnARIsAKYDH7txOs82ug_38a_Nfd95QPBTjgiBJ0mIulKdUiBU0UoWx70XWvVwIosaAnmsEALw_wcB
  8. Doggone it. And here I am with all this religious porn that I'm fixing to try and unload. 😬

    She sure is pretty, Paw. 🙂
  10. She's a Kramer from 1985 or 1986. Most likely built in Korea, based upon that serial number. Other than that, the photos are too small to pick out any of the critical details. Can you take a close up photo of the front of the headstock, the back of the headstock, and the bridge EMG-style pickup? Thanks!! 🙂
  11. This might be considered Mint Condition as well, when you think about it. 😐
  12. Welcome, Sarah. It's great to have you aboard! There are a lot of veteran players here with plenty of great advice. Seek and ye shall find! Sparky PS My wife's favorite niece, from southern Alabama, is named Sarah Sims. Small world! 🙂
  13. I can't wait to give a listen. I must confess though, I have never heard of the band Love, nor this album, before today. Looking over the musicians involved, it's going to be treat, I suspect. I see most of the Wrecking Crew on there. Very excited now. 🙂
  14. I was just copying the sound hole label protocols that Gibson used many years ago. 'Style' was what we might call Model Number. 'Gibson' was either guitar, ukulele, or mandolin. And Serial Number is self explanatory. Trust me, they weren't consistent in their application of these practices either. See examples below.
