  1. I am a little surprised about changing pickups in a guitar like that. To me, honestly, you may even want to consider just selling it. There is a lot going on electronically in it. If you do decide to sell it later on, buyers won't pay as much for an altered guitar as they would an unaltered one. Just a thought ...
  2. You have a beautiful SG -- I like what you have done. Purely for aesthetics, my '79 SG Standard has a Gibson maestro tremolo plate, and a chrome "Rhythm"/"Treble" plate with a bronze-metal switch knob.
  3. Cool guitar, bro. You will enjoy way that way more than the cheap Les Paul copy. Good choice!
  4. Low-grade Les Paul copy -- you get what you pay for...
  5. I have never played a Custom Shop R9, R0, etc. I always wondered if I would think that one of those is so much better when my "regular Les Paul" is -- to me -- plays, sounds, and looks so good.
  6. This is a brutal thread without pics. Any chance of posting pics of the guitar and the signed COAs??
  7. I would just like to go back to 1974 so I could see an initial version of Van Halen in someone'e backyard at a $4-per-head kegger. Then find Randy Rhoades and pay him to give me guitar lessons.
  8. Yes, very cool!
  9. No fresh chicken or beef in Colorado Springs. Do you have fresh meat where you are??
  10. Your guitar is far more beautiful than ANY blue burst I have seen. Awesome!
  11. Here in Colorado Springs, gas and milk are readily available. TP, paper towels, rice, potatoes, chicken & beef are not.
  12. I would absolutely get the Studio between those two. Proper gloss finish and a proper HSC. Also, it has the non-reverse headstock which I also prefer. The Studio has that awesome burst too (so classic for a Firebird to have that) and the Granadillo fretboard (honestly, I have never heard of "Granadillo" but it is sure fun to say out loud). Look, you asked me which one I would pick ... for me it would be the Studio all day long. Not even close.
  13. A couple of recent noteworthy releases ... 1) Sonny Landreth has a new album out called Blacktop Run -- It features some stellar guitar playing and just excellent music (check out the guitar playing, especially, on Groovy Goddess). 2) Def Leppard has a new Early Years 5-CD release -- Typically, anything by Def Leppard is not at all interesting to me. This is different, though. This is a complete re-mastering and extra stuff only related to their often overlooked first two albums. This is the ONLY only Def Leppard era that I ever really liked (Pyromania was okay), but I always hated Hysteria and everything after. This is the era where they were just a hard-working and gritty Les Paul slinging hard rock band from Northern England, a bit reminiscent of Humble Pie. The first three CDs are the most interesting as they include remasters of those two albums plus a 1979 concert -- the only thing for beyond that is the mandatory "Me and My Wine" bonus track from CD 4. For those going to the Motley Crue/Def Leppard stadium tour this summer (if that even happens), they were expected to play a bunch of this early stuff.
  14. The irony here is that advice comes from "Pinch". (LOL) Additional edit: The word Pinch is also a slang term for stealing something, just in case my post is not making sense.
