BFG Greenback?

Recommended Posts

What do you know about a Gibson Greenback?...was told about it by a knowledgeable friend who says it's a new BFG and swears it's the best Gibson ever.

 

Thanks!

Yep probably the BFG Gator they released - Guess its a update to the gecko burst [crying]

 

I just knew we'd get a new BFG after all the wood that was damaged by flooding but you would have thought they could get the mold off first. [flapper]

I HAVE 5 OF THESE...

NOW AT FIRST I TOO SAID TO UGOY UNTIL I PLUGGED ONE IN AND HEARD THE TONE AND LIKE AN UGLY CHIC IT LOOKS BETER AS YA HEAR THE TONE..lol

 

THIS IS WHAT THE NORLIN ERA LES PAULS WERE ABOUT NOT PRETTY TOPS N FLAMES N SIGNATIRE SERIES....TONE PERDIOD

 

I HAVE 37 GIBSONLS AND CAN USE WHAT I LIKE WHEN ON TOUR I HAVE 5 BFG;S ALLSET UP DIFFERENTLY AND WITH ALTRERNATE TUNINGS.

 

WHAT MAES EM SO GOOD..THE LACK OF CRAP THAT GIVES NOTHING TO THE TONE...THIS GUITARS IS ALLABOUT TONE

 

I HAEV PUT 1960 P-90;S I THE NECK AND PAF;S, 57 CLASSIC, AND OTHER PUPS INT HE BRIDGE INCLUDING A MISSISSIPPI QUEEN BARE KNUCKLE P-90- HUMBUCKER SIZE

iIMHO THE BURSTBUCKERS AND OTHE PUPS MADE TO ENHANCE MIDS N HIGHS ARE JUNK ALLYOU NEED IS A TRREBLE BLEEDER AND A 57 CLASSIC OR 490/498 AND YO HAVE GIBSIN BEST SHOT ATA TRUE PAF

 

YOU HAVE THE BEST AND LONGEST RUNNING PUP EVER IN THE NECK THE P-90 AND MULTI TONAL PAF IN THE BRIDGE.,...

CHANGE YOUR CAPS, DIG THE KILL SWITCH

 

THIS IS THE BEST THING TO COME OUT OF R& D IN YEARS AND THAT IS WHY IT IS BACK NOT FLOOD WOOD.

BEING A GIBSON BACKED ARTIST I GET INSIDE INFO AND THESE ARE NO WAY JUNK WOOD THAT WENT TO EPIPHONE !111

 

r they ugly ,,,not really differnt oh yeah

 

SO YA SPEND A FWE BUCKS ON TRIM RINGS, KNOBS, TRUSS ROD COVER EWRC AND NOW YA HAVE ANBOC ELOOKING BARE BONES AX;

 

I CAN GET WHJAT I WANT BUT YA KNOW WHATY I AHVE A 6 THOUSAND DOLLAR ELEGANT AAAAA QUJILTYED TOP AND IT PLAYS OR SOUNDS NO BETER THAN MY 700.00 BFG.

 

BU TONE NOT LOOKS IF THATL;S WHATYA WNAT GET A PRS.

 

GIBSON SELLS GUITARS WITH TONE INCLUDED AND LIKE ANY GIBSON IT COMES READY FOR EVERYONE SO IT NEEDS TWEAKING THAT IS UP TO YOU AND WHAT TONE YOU;RE LOOKING FOR.

THE WOOD IS NOT FLOOD WOOD !!!!!!

 

TAKE A CHANCE AND GET ONE....NO ONE CAN GET AT MINE AND TWO OF THEM ARE 1 OF 300 LIMITED EDITIONS.

 

WHEWN OU USE YOU R AX;LS 4 TIMES A WEEEKL YOU CANOT DEPEND ON SOME PRETTY LITTLE AX THAT YOULRE AFRAID TO TROUCH YOU NEED A WORK HORSE ADN YOU CAN GET NO CLOER TO THAT THAN WITH A BFG

 

I LOVE EM...CHECK OUT THE 2009 NIGHHAWKS THEY HAVE THE BFG SETUP PICK UPS IN EM AND CAN BE BOUGHT FOR 1/3 WHAT THEY SOLD FOR ORIGINALLY

 

DO NOT JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER THESE AREW DIAMONDS IN THE RUFF !!!!

 

The color is nothing like Gecko burst it is more a greenish black I saw em at Namnnn

 

But should ya have a problem with the rough finish try this...a friend sandedo ne down then wiped ebony stain on and wiped off what did not sink in,....what he got was a gorgeous part back and part grain Les Paul that sounded like NIRVANNA ,HEAVEN , MECCA or justbeautifull.

 

Yo can always return it..... so buy it first then decide

I'm biddingf on an ink blue one now and will get that one

 

your decision but I hope I answered a lot of questions.

 

I can afford and play anything I choose to play these

Welcome, Fuzzy. Glad you're here and sorry your first post happens to be in the middle of a glitch...mis-communication happens.

 

But if you can let this slide, you'll find we're a friendly, respectful group and unpleasantness is rare. I can promise you'll find lots of interesting info, help when you need it, and comraderie here.

Vestapol, fuzzy's a "veteran" of this forum. I believe he meant "first post" as in on this thread. You are obviously a kind and nice member for offering words of comfort. You exemplified what you spoken of. That's cool.

 

I know fred, aka Nathan, forgets he's been here a while. His endless search for sl00shtone has taken its toll.....

*whispering* I think the new green BFGs are pretty sweet. That is all. *Tip toes out*

 

I dig them too. Especially if they really look like the pic.

If it helps

[shift] [+] [+] will zoom the screen so it's easier to read. I just found this out myself, quite by accident. I think you can plus the zoom up about 10 times. I usually plus it up twice.

 

 

Love the BFG gator. My favorite color is green and the price is right. That and the faux gator back will match my faux gator fiddle case.

 

 

QUESTION:

 

What does BFG stand for?

 

Big eFfin' Guitar?

 

Bad eFfin' Guitar?

 

[confused]
