Thanks, Peter. I used a Canon EOS500 SLR camera with its internal mic.
Picked her up last Thursday...
Thanks to this post, I went ahead and pulled the trigger at MF. With case, $446
Hope I like it.
1972 all original near mint Epi..........
SG with jazzmaster tremolo and onboard Distortion and treble boost.
Okay, add to all of the above, my newly acquired DR100. The $99 "how do they do that" guitar:
Oh yeah, and more mod's to the Dot:
Finally really got to do a once over on the guitar. Put some Slinky 10's on it, and wow! For a stock Epi, sounds pretty amazing. After taking all the plastic off the guitar and also the little black stickers under the knobs letting me know that they're coil split, look at the F hole
Honestly, my first thought, send it back. But, unless you're PRETTY close, you really can't see it. The only reason I'm not "IT'S GOING BACK!", is because it sounds so good. Should I contact MF and ask for some sort of partial refund maybe? Anyone ever done that?
Did you buy that new? If I was you I wouldn't settle for that at full price, no matter how good a player it is.
I'm surprised it hasn't been marked as a factory 2nd. It's not even hidden, it's just.. right there.
Get a full refund and return it or at least a partial refund if you're really happy with it playing-wise.
If bought new, I'd say get an estimate to remove/refinish that part of the guitar if you really, really like it, and ask for at least that much of a discount. If they say no, you can gamble on another by returning it. All in all, I'd opt for the discount if I really liked the guitar otherwise, but that's just me.
A couple of good 'beaters'..
hi i let a few more pics of my 2 loves...
1979 Epiphone Genesis Custom & 1980 Epiphone Genesis Custom
My Trio of Epiphones. 1996 LP. 2008 Thunderbird. 1996 Sheraton II.
Did I buy new? Yes. But, I got 15% off during that Labor Day sale, then got an additional $35 off as well when I called them and sent them that picture. So I can deal with that.
What's the story with the Telehawk... umm or Nightocaster?
I bet that's an original Epiphone Nighthawk. Those were bolt on.
That the Ripper or Grabber? Either way, super sweet.
.....the Nighthawk seems to be made at their Mexican factory in the neighbourhood of the Fender factory
Yet, I can't find one!
It's a long story, that you can read below, but it was very largely paruwi's (Pete's) fault
