  1. I got an old Chainsaw Case a while back with a LP Melody Maker in it, I sold the Melody Maker and kept the case because I found that it fit my Blues Hawk really well. Partly because old case was flat in-between the LP contours and allowed my Blues Hawk to fit better than another case I had found.
  2. Gibson has always used Nitrocellulose Lacquer or some type of Lacquer, inexpensive guitars use different types of Poly so they are not effected by the same static noise.
  3. Don't worry once the Nitro cures fully and the static reduces the next thing to look forward to will be finish checking.
  4. I'm still using my RK5 I also use a Joyo analog Chorus and Delay in the Effects Loop.
  5. The Gibson static problem has been reported for a very long time, but seems to get better as the Nitro cures.
  6. I think all of the current MIC Epiphone Archtops are 5-ply, semi hollow and hollow. On my modified 339 the top sides and back are 5-ply they are slightly over a 1/4" thick, this may also make them slightly heavier than their Gibson built counterparts.
  7. Casinos are tone machines, that respond very well to using the tone control. I am kind of a P90 maniac having 11 guitars with different types of them. In general P90's are raw brutal pickups with an extreme range of tone that sometimes need to be rained in, wide open they can be a lot to handle. There are a lot of Casino people reading this with many variations of Casinos, some not aware of the different Epiphone P90's that are used over the years or how earlier versions could sound different. The current Epiphone P90 Pro is nice loud and fat sounding, where the P90 Classic can sound thinner a
  8. Some unusual flora in my yard.
  9. Very very kuwel, nice set...
  10. There are 3 different MIC Casino's in production now, the Casino Coupe, Casino Worn and the Casino, each are slightly different with slightly different hardware and in the past more MIC model variations. Need to define which model you are talking about as the MIC Casino's use different pickups and whether you like sound of them is purely personal taste. Whether your MIC Casino has the P-90 Classic™or the Epiphone PRO P-90.. Also note that the earlier Korean P-90's, I think, were wound like the P-90 Classic, possibly and not to forget the Indonesian P-90's. Also the Epiphone USA
  11. A raining day at my mountain house.. A good day to continue refining my new practice nook...
  12. Coke Zero works for me..
  13. While trying out several tube amps in the 10 to 20 watt range, most worked quite well but didn't me my requirement for effects loop, spring reverb and 12" speaker. I decided to take a chance on my SR15's which are reported to be clones or built by the same people that build Laney's. Anyway I don't know if that is true, but the schematics are very similar. I am very satisfied with them and found that I can increase the headroom by boosting the tone controls. I played outdoors yesterday at below 1/2 volume with one of my amps and it sounded really rich with good solid driven high notes.
  14. Another Roland to look at under £300, the Cube Street with 2X6.5" speakers, which has the same amp models as my smaller Cubes. I use the JC Clean and Black Panel for clean or with external effects but just straight in I enjoy the Rectifier (R-Fier) setting.
  15. I posted that before I saw your last post, if you plug in to an amp and it just sounds killer, its likely that as a demo it will start off sounding good. If the Marshall DSL 1 just sounded good to start with, your client may not need to reset to find a sound they like. That was how I felt when I plugged in to a Rivera, the richness of the sound just blew every thing else away. My SR15's (same as the HB15's) I had to work a bit to find what I wanted.
  16. You might want o look at a Roland Blues Cube.
  17. The Vox AC15 with a 12 for £200 sounds like a smokin deal, or are you just getting the head?
  18. If you don't want to plunk down a lot and have something you won't worry about too much, is reliable and tone wise pretty flexible.. Thomanns has them for £169.38... https://www.thomannmusic.com/intl/harley_benton_tube15_celestion.htm?sid=1b5ab66aca7237ae9126a593e33e6580&ref=intl&shp=eyJjb3VudHJ5IjoidXMiLCJjdXJyZW5jeSI6NCwibGFuZ3VhZ2UiOjJ9&reload=1
  19. Get both a Micro Cube and a 15 watt tube amp. There are a lot of advantages to having both.
  20. Thats true, the nut pate only said Gibson on it where Standard would be marked, most 90's and early 2000 Epiphones are not marked as to what model they were. I should have said styled after a 60's SG Standard Deluxe or Pro. This is the new SG Standard 60's model. Below is the new regular SG Standard that has the larger pickguard.
  21. Actually, my brother-in-law was their attorney and EVH's as well.
  22. JOMcKJr thank you for your service. There are a lot of Vets in here including me, I would advise not taking things said in here too seriously. The forum has been a great place for people to blow off steam, specially the frustrations of dealing with COVID and musicians not being able to perform out side of safe boxes. Note that a large number of players in here do not have Gibsons, including me, most of mine are Epiphones.
  23. She loves to look at my guitars and plays a little, but she is a little bit country and I'm a little bit metal.
  24. You did very well, G-400's usually sell in the $200 to $350 range, depending on condition.
  25. Its a G-400 which come in a Special a Standard and Custom. Yours looks to be a G-400 60's SG Standard Deluxe with a Bigsby style Trem. I have a 07 G-400 60's SG Standard modified with Mean 90s and a Duesenberg Trem. Juniors have a single pickup, a Special Usually designates 2 pickups and dot inlays, Standards have trapezoidal inlays, Customs also have binding on the headstock.
