    I for one am glad Nico is back. I think his work is amazing and I have seen very little to justify the negative responses he seems to sometimes engender.

    Good work Nico

    Nico is still banned, thankfully.

    Unless he created an alternate account. I wouldn't be surprised.

    Unless he came back and got banned immediately. That wouldn't surprise me.

    Well it appears someone posted one of his guitars in the classifieds. The ad is gone now so who knows?

    It was posted by "a friend." I'm guessing MLP doesn't allow banned people's gear to be posted for sale?

    Well he's already got it posted at another forum where it's causing issues and it was at the SG forum until he got into some big fight about it.

    I have no problems with artificial aging of a guitar. I actually admire Nico for his skill, talent and patience. I've even considered picking up a beat Epiphone and trying some of his methods. One question though. On a Gibson that has been artificially checked, what will happen in a few years when the guitar starts to check naturally? Or would it simply check on the lines that have already been scribed in to it?

    A shame would be if it was avoidable.

    Nick, however, brought this onto himself, not just on this but one many other websites as well.

    That's not a "shame", that's pathetic.

    smockin job!!!

    R5s are some of the finest guitars ever made by gibson!

    pretty much all R5´s are light weight. my all mahogany R5 alnico custom wraptail is 8.6 lbs and my R5 goldtop wraptail is 8.1 lbs (actually a little less 8.08 lbs).
