    I returned a Gibson Studio last week, looked like Stevie Wonder applied the lacquer and there was a ding on the cutout.  So sent it back, and bought an Epiphone instead, problem solved arrived in excellent condition, unlike the Gibson.

    Only one thing that annoys me, according to spec for new Epiphone Les Paul inspired by Gibson range, they say it has CTS pots......yeah right, so why is there just 1 CTS volume pot and 3 Non CTS push pull pots?

    Apart from that very happy with my Epi


    this is the second time i read about the cts pots on the new epis =( this sucks, i want one but this and all the QA issues ppl are reporting are a turn off

  2. Dont watch much tv as i used to, but when i do i see these Channels: History, Tru Tv, Fox, Gourmet tv,and some local stuff

    i am watching more Netflix, HBO go, Plex, and wishing i had more BBC  series

  3. When i was younger i used to buy guitars by appearance and because some musician i admired played it, i kept some of those guitars and some i sold..as i grew older it has to appeal to me visually but its all about the feel and sound now, i now know what characteristics are a must for me (like neck profile and a little bit the weight factor), so i have to play them first, because i have bought guitars that have been spec wise what i wanted but then the neck ends up being a little bit different  and end up selling them

    The Country Western in general became dimensionally the same specs as the Hummingbird in 1962 .


    Why does Sheryl like her C& W ??

    Gibson interviewed her for the new souped up version of her signature model:


    This is different than her previous C&W in that it has a Wide “X”  scalloped bracing.


    The originals from the 60’s had straight (unscalloped  bracing) and the old Sheryl Crow model  had Scalloped X bracing in the standard “X” position.



    Here’s demo of the old Sheryl model:




    didnt know that! wonder how different the 2000 models and new models sound!  really liked this vid demo


    edit: i mean having a side by side comparison video

    no, might try the ltd edition 59 Les Paul when it comes out, that gets QC checked in USA so might help catch the finish issues 


    Didnt know that! thanks for the tip

    its a bummer, i also wanted to get a 60s standard but i've read a lot of reviews now about cosmetic flaws and the frets not being correct, so i dont wanna order online

    The questions were how does different weight relief effect sound, playability, neck dive etc.  I have owned a non-relieved LP, a few with modern (9 hole) weight relief and one with ultra-modern weight relief.  As to sound the pickups account for most (if not all?) the difference, not the weight relief.  As to playability, I am old so lighter is better for a 3 or 4 set gig.  Neck dive is never an issue with a LP regardless of which type of weight relief it has.

    It would be cool to play three different LPs with the different weight reliefs available through the same amp with the same settings, and all three have the same pickups (regardless of what PUs they were) to see if we could hear a difference.  But I have not seen that type of comparison done.  The different types of weight relief come on different model LPs, and different models almost always have different pickups.

    As mentioned two identical model LPs may sound quite different anyway, so attributing any tone difference to weight relief is almost impossible to do.  Just get out and play and bunch of them and when you find the one that feels and sounds good to you, buy it.



    agree with Twang Gang... i've played HEAVY LPs and weight relief ones and pick ups played a bigger deal than the weight

    Sucked.  Joe was playing the riff wrong key, once they got his down and you could only hear Brad it was fine, Joe came back later in the right key.  Solo was just a couple cats in a bag, awful.  It looked like they found a Joe Kramer look-a-like to play drums.  Tyler was his usual embarrassing self.



    haha at first i thought it was JOe Kramer on the drums! he did look a lot like him

    I didn't watch that joke of a show. It just comes up on my internet at work and saw they played that sell out of a song they had to do back in the day, cause no one gave a rip about them, back then.


    I did watch them on the grammys, i i think their performance was just OK, i dunno i didnt like it
