    How loud are you guys running your amps?

    I remember visiting my brother's dorm years ago (late '70s). Back in the day, how many watts your stereo had was the 'dick measuring ' contest du jour. Then, there was one guy who had a stereo, with 1 watt. We were like, dude, you won't be able to hear it over a loud fart. Then he put on...

    How loud are you guys running your amps?

    I usually have mine on at least 3, often 5. Champ, Princeton non-reverb, Princeton Reverb Just got a 4x12 cab yesterday, the PR sounded fantastic through it. It might be louder but it definitely was bigger, there's just no real way to describe it, even if it only uses two 12s at a time at 8...

    2021 R9 Finish Bleeding into Binding

    that is quite possible. My 60th anniversary R9 has it because I play it a lot, it's just shy of being 2 years old. My R0 was ebony so it doesn't have it, plus it's 11 years old now. If I'm still around in 11 years, we'll see how my R9's bleeding looks.

    2021 R9 Finish Bleeding into Binding

    perfectly normal, they were adamant about making these just like the old ones, which did the same thing. In about 10-20 years, one day you'll look and it'll be gone. The pink, that is, hopefully the guitar and you will still be there.

    Pickup help? 1989 35th anniversary LP Custom 3 pickup BB

    ah, got to love '80s era Gibson. If it were actually a 35th anniversary in 1989, it would be a '54 reissue, which did not come with 3 pickups, but rather a P-90 in the bridge and an alnico staple pickup in the neck. The three pickup Black Beauty debut in 1957, so 35 years from that would be...

    knew it wasn't going to be great but ...

    cool, thanks for the idea about orphaning. yeah, they did all kinds of wall moving and 'rewiring'. I was wondering how the hell am I going to see what's in every wall and receptacle. We have the same situation, the house is a ranch and we can access from above and below as well. The...

    knew it wasn't going to be great but ...

    Holy crap. The housing inspection showed that we have functional electrical service at our new house, but it is a mess. We got money off the price of the house, but we're probably still going to put some electrician's kid or kids plural through college. The house dates to 1958 and predates a...

    Belated NGD 2021 Gold Glory LPC

    this one showed up while we were arses and elbows deep in moving boxes, got quickly checked out and stashed away. Finally got around to taking pics today, 2 weeks after it showed up. Really, that long ago? Seems like 5 minutes. Anyway. 2021 Epiphone James Jared Nichols (still don't really...

    Thinking about a Les Paul Deluxe '70s reissue

    I went, I played, I traded 2021 Les Paul Deluxe '70s Initial impressions: nice neck on this, slightly bigger than my SG, more rounded with less shoulders. board looks really nice, it will be oiled in short order and a fret polish when I do a set up. The weight is probably just under 9...

    Thinking about a Les Paul Deluxe '70s reissue

    LOL, thanks y'all. Yeah, I sort of expected them to be merely suggestive of the '70s Deluxes. I dug my trade bait out of storage and may just go up today. Should call first and make sure they still have them. The first one they had sold in a day after they put it up on their site. So far...
