  1. Yea it's a little pricey but you get a free date with Anna.
  2. That is a funny interview because he said working with the big names in a studio was disappointing. I read a print interview where he said he hated being a session musician because back then no one would let him use distortion. He obviously felt restrained
  3. Use the Chibson as a project guitar to train on. All the time we have pickers in here ask how to repair a ding on their beautiful LP. Don't do your 1st repair on a real LP. Use the Chibson. Don't install your 1st bone nut on a real LP use the Chibson. Most mechanics 1st learned on Briggs and Stratton engines not 427 Chevy V8s. Surgeons started operating on pigs not patients.
  4. Burt and Dom Deloise did a funny movie called The End.
  5. It was popular in the 60s to strip finishes.
  6. I used a set of Kent Armstrong dog ear chrome P90s on my Epi Casino. They were drop-in They use 42awg coil wire and A5 magnets. KAs are respected by jazz players. They are made in Korea. Mine were 8.1ko and 8.15ko. They cost half what Gibson P90s cost but sound daringly similar
  7. Do not try to straighten tuners on your headstock. Use an old cheap guitar to remount it on or use a plank to remount it on. Then get large pliers and grab the button to try to bend the shaft back.
  8. Sounds like youre measuring exactly half their true value. You may have wired them wrong.
  9. Richards ran acoustics through a cheap cassette player because it gave a bizarre distortion sound.
  10. It's a trip reading how Richards got those sounds on record. Don't expect to go buy that same guitar and hear the same sound. He ran them through the darndest things to get unique tones. He cheated you might say.
  11. There are a lot of very well written books on the instruments the Rolling Stones, Beatles and others used used. One thing that amazes me is the maple caps on LPs. They have flaws. Very few are perfect. Flametops look great in spots and underwhelming in other spots. I don't think the musicians looking for bursts to play cared about flametop evenness. There weren't enough to be had to be picky. There is one LP Mick Taylor and Richards shared that I can spot because of a light area on the cap.
  12. JL - John Lennon You have Casino with Gibson P90s
  13. Those are stress fractures in the gold paint from somebody forcing the knobs onto their shafts. Better to drill them out so they fit on without force being required. Gold paint uses copper which tends to crack. Just ignore the fractures but don't use force on gold paint anymore. Gold paint is unique and requires delicate handling.
  14. Generally on that end of the fretboard most cracks are caused by the truss rod bolt. Those look like stress fractures that have become visable.
