I apologize for hijacking the thread and arguing with an unstable loon. Now let's get back to guitars.

Here is a very nice one I used to own. Its no Epi, but it did the job.

Ghost and Pepper, are you guys so bored that you have to destroy posts that other people may be enjoying?

Micmac,     I never thought I'd be defending Sgt.Pepper -   but I think he just pushed back on Ghost for the same reason you commented here.

GhostFL: "I joined this forum because... well they shut down the Fender forum.   If I have $2500 for a classic guitar, I'd rather buy a Fender and save the left over $1000 for my next guitar (or whatever).  "         Throwing cold water on a post  - when you don't own any Gibson's but  'have used the polish'  - knowing he's gotten lots of pushback already in the few months he's been here -  may be an indication of why they shut down the Fender Forum.

nah, it was purely a business decision...  they moved to social media, which we all know how THAT can go...  I was a member of that forum, it was pretty contentious.   Kind of like this forum lately.  

is there a connection?  dunno...

I agree Kid, you are being kind when you describe it as "contentious".  I checked it out before joining this forum..not my style at all.

yea..  it was a very unfriendly place considering everyone signed in there would be considered "Fellow" players and all.   not my style either.   this forum needs to work on it's ethics IMHO, it's not quite the same place it used to be.  That's on US..  we need to cut the crap..

Nice looking Custom love the Wine Red with all that figure and grain.  I was never a big fan of P-90s, but the way everyone raves about them here I must be in the minority.  My first LP was a gold top with the soap bar p-90s.  I played it like that for about 6 years, and then had the top routed out and humbuckers put in it.  Many would say that was a big mistake, but I was gigging with that guitar and was very happy with the change.  I have always leaned toward clean sounds and the P-90s were pretty growly, whereas the HBers were brighter and livelier to my ear.

I apologize to anyone I offended with my last post in here and do not wish to feed the frenzy.

I sold may last Gibson a few months ago, I currently have 5 Epiphones and 2 other brands. All P90 powered. 7 seems to be my max number that I can take care of because of my climate and clean the oxidation off of each every week.

Nothings wrong with an Epi, and seven is the bomb!   I keep waffling between getting some LP traditional in the $2500 range.  Or an Epi sheraton, V, LP and Firebird...  you know, pull a Steve Ford.

Not to hijack this thread but out of curiosity I Googled "Heptahedronal Expression" and the first result was a thread on these forums about a Gibson ES 335 :-k I still don't know what that is though. 😀

A heptahedron is a geometric solid figure with 7 plane faces. So heptahedronal expression would  be some type of expression with a 7 sided figure. Whatever that is.

Very good, you weren't asleep in your geometry class. A heptahedron is a 3 dimensional object with 7 faces. The number 7 keeps popping up in my life lately, like 7 guitars, I just turned 70, I was born in the 7th month and other weird things. I guess if I keep looking for sevens I will find them, like 7th dimensional space a position in space with 7 vectors . "Heptahedronal Expression" could be knowing where I am and really thinking about what I going to say, instead of reacting. There is some Zen in this, somewhere.

 

I keep hearing "Take It Easy" over and over in my head particularly the part "I've got seven women on my mind, Four that want to own me, two that want to stone me, One said she's a friend of mine". This happens a lot when I am physically working hard like pushing my lawn mower, which I am getting ready to finish the back half right now. 

 

I first joined this forum to talk about my Black Gibson Blues Hawk and compare it to my Sapphire Epiphone Blueshawk...

I had calculus in High School (and passed). Math was always easy for me.

7 is also a very significant number in the world of Christianity. I think it appears in the Bible over 700 times.

It took God six days to make earth, on the 7th day he rested. The Sabbath is on the 7th day of a 7 day week. The walls of Jericho fell down after 7 days of marching around it , etc.

7 is a cool number. Always been my favorite! [smile]

Very good, Seven is also representational of Christ a perfect number, where six six six is almost Seven but didn't quite make it.

40 is another # that shows up in scripture often.  40 days...
