    Gaps under frets?

    I wouldn't be happy with that...I'm not sure what I'd do...but I wouldn't like it. I would hope they checked out high with a rocker so I could knock them down. I have definitely worked on guitars with dead notes due to raised frets. If it wouldn't knock down, I'd run some CY glue into it and...

    Vintage 1969 Les Paul Goldtop with P-90s

    7-10??! I remember when 2500 was stupid money for a burst.

    Klusson Diecast Tuners and Tone

    I'm not much of a modder, tweaker...I'd rather just play. I used to make my living at it. A few years ago, my 60's Danelectro was starting to get MORE finicky about holding tune, do I thought I'd swap the old 3-on-a-strip, open gear tuners for something else I had lying around...probably one of...

    Nylon Saddles

    I wouldn't assume that nylon saddles tame or mellow anything. I recently replaced TOMs on 2 guitars with a rosewood saddle and they both went ZING! Acoustically AND plugged in. More treble and more sustain. After that, I think anything is possible. The guitars were an Epi Sorrento and Guild...

    Yngwie Bashes Ibanez Guitars

    I say shit like that all the time, for fun. Just nobody listens. Peter Green has said his old 'burst wasn't a good guitar for Blues. Muddy has said Hoochie Koochie Man was supposed to be a FUNNY song. Some people say funny shit if they know a lot of people are listening.

    I wish my Les Paul wasn't so perfect...

    It's a GUITAR. There are many reasons to own one, but only one really good one.

    SG Special to Standard Conversions. Who is doing them?

    Great guitar. Especially if it has a wide nut. Don't bend it over and bugger it. Pics!!!

    Is this an easy fix

    That is the exact shape of a headstock crack. It's Gibson's Exclusive Patented Whiplash Smile. Google Gibson headstock crack and you will see that shape over and over. Some will try to charge a lot for such a repair because it seems like such a huge deal. In a way, it is...it has to be done...

    EL ROTH

    David Roth...I'm pretty sure he's Jewish. I'm also pretty sure nobody is going to associate him with American slavery.

    Gut shot? Pot codes?

    Does anyone here actually find General Lee's flag and the flying of it offensive?

    Snappy retort, but dead wrong. Which is fine if you're one of those who thinks a good snappy retort trumps the truth. I'm talking about the overwhelmingly negative perception African American population has concerning the Confederate flag. I'm sure it's well documented.

    I think you're thinking about someone else. I'm quite sure I never implied that whiteness offends me; on you or anybody else. You might consider apologizing for your mistake.

    Does anyone here actually find General Lee's flag and the flying of it offensive?

    It's pretty simple...say you're wearing a shirt that says University of Minnesota, and a good friend, neighbor, brother, sister...says, "Someone in my family was badly abused at U of Minn, and that shirt reminds me of it. I wish you wouldn't wear it." Do you say, "I believe that there is NOTHING...
