    Aged True Historic - Factory Buckle Rash or Not

    Ya, but you look at the front, not the back. I know the backside of mine looks worse than the front.

    Best way to purchase new les Paul

    This is what happened because my dad bought me the right one when I was in high school. I've wound up selling damn near every guitar I've had since then because they don't measure up.

    Had my first jam session in a while.

    I've been drinking a lot recently because my grandma passed away, but I've been trying to play guitar to keep me busy so I won't drink. But this past Friday one of my buddys came over to have a couple drinks. We wound up talking about bands we where in back in the day which led to us having a...

    Physical activity old age and drugs

    Hell, last time I went to the doctor a couple years ago because I hurt my hand at work, they were surprised I wasn't on anything and I'm 28. He did a check up, and everything was good, despite all my bad habits. But I swear, I'm one of the only people I know who doesn't have a prescription for...

    You know what really grinds my gears?

    I did too, and it's one of the reasons I'm a horrible millennial. I learned to "drive" on a tractor that was a stick, and my dad has always had trucks that were sticks. The first time I drove a car that was an automatic was when I took drivers ed. I asked them where the clutch was and he had no...

    Bending an Open String

    You can also push down on the string between the bridge and tailpiece. It works better on the bridges like a Byrdland has, but if you push hard enough on a Les Paul it will still do it.

    Wouldn't a proper Hendrix Signature Strat...

    I've seen some Charvels that can pull off the reverse headstock, but on a traditional looking Strat it just doesn't work. An upside down Strat just looks better. I've been toying around with the idea since I started to learn guitar. I only mess with the controls on my Strat because they're so...

    The Unpopular Opinions Thread.

    I found out about that movie from my uncles that were Marines. They're the same ones that made sure I knew that only women were allowed in the Army. I love shit talking as much as the next guy; but one thing I've learned from friends and family that were in the military, they get that shit down...

    The Unpopular Opinions Thread.

    I've always heard if you make a mistake in a song, make it again and then it's jazz. I like to think of myself as a very accomplished jazz guitar player. :slash:

    I'm just glad your friend has a guitar to rock out on now. :dude:

    A new guitarist emerges today (Now with photos)

    That surprises me too. I got it before SS frets were really a thing on regular guitars. It's probably some super hard Chinese mystery metal. :hmm:

    A new guitarist emerges today (Now with photos)

    Ya, I bought it at Guitar Center like 5-6 years ago when I got into Japanese metal and "had" to have a goofy shaped guitar. I only had it a couple months when I started pickup swapping on it. It had a couple sets in it, but none of them ever sounded good to me. So it sat in my closet in a...
