  1. 1960 Explorer Looking for an Explorer? A 1960 Korina for your consideration. A bargain at a mere $895,000 !!!!
  2. Thanks guys! This guitar smokes all of my others. The neck is butter. Great pickups. Just perfect in every way. I am so stoked about it I am considering selling off my Gibson USA models and getting another Reissue.

    I finally joined the historic ranks! For years I wanted to get a Custom Shop LP before I turned 50. I came in just under the radar with my birthday less than 2 weeks away. I am stunned by how incredible this guitar is. It is head and shoulders above any guitar I have played or owned. Fit and finish are superb! Happy Holidays! 2016 R8 Washed Cherry Gloss
  4. Here is my Mesa Dual Rectifier. Incredible tone! Much more than just a metal amp. My band mate`s Mark IV. A phenomenal amp!
  5. Just a heads up for you guys in Europe. Thomann have 2016 Standard Faded Plain Top`s in stock. Modern weight relief, Zebra Burstbucker Pros, Honeyburst finish, etc. They look cool and the price is right. 2016 LP STD Faded
  6. I didn`t really consider myself a Flying V guy either, but this one spoke to me. There was another one of the same model in red which was cool too. I like the ebony better. I prefer covered pups but also enjoy the look of the zebras. I forgot to mention that the neck is a 60`s slim taper, and the neck binding has nibs. Thankfully, no robot tuning. It has Kluson tuners. The nut is something called TekToid which is supposedly self lubricating. It doesn`t look any different than the standard corian nut to me. Also included was a picture of the guitar on the work bench at quality control. Gibson added a black micro fiber polishing cloth with the Gibson logo on it. Pretty cool. Anyway, I took it down to my band´s practice room and gave it run through my amp. It sounds killer. I launched into a few Judas Priest riffs to do it justice... Thanks for the kind words guys. Cheers. Here is another picture that shows the nibs.
  7. I just picked up this Flying V 2016 model in ebony. The pups are 500T & 496R. They are quite hot and scream when cranked, but clean up nicely when rolling off the volume. The volume and tone pots are 500K according to Gibson. It sustains forever it seems. Fit and finish are fantastic. The only negative thing is the crappy gig bag it came in. I bought a hard case for it so not really an issue. Here are the obligatory pictures. Cheers. Gibson Flying V Pro 2016
  8. My band mate`s amp and new Flying V Other band mate`s amp - hand made Marshall clone My friend´s gear - Orange Rockerverb (incredible amp!)
  9. Marshall JCM 800 - sold Hughes & Kettner Switchblade - sold Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier - my new amp
  10. As 2015 rolls on I am sure many of us are anxious to see what "technological advances" Gibson have in store for 2016. Hopefully nothing like this.....
  11. Guitar Center Just read an interesting article. It seems Guitar Center`s financial woes are far more dire than suspected. The new head of the company, allegedly, doesn`t know a thing about music or gear. Investors are jumping ship and stocks are plunging. There has been a new round of firings including some top people of the company. Guitar Center is in serious trouble and will most likely be forced to file for Chapter 11.
