    FS: Gibson 57/57+ set

    These were the pickups that came in my 50s standard that I bought from Sweetwater.. full length leads and ready to go into your next project. I ended up going with a set of Seymour Duncan pickups $180 shipped/ppd to the lower 48 states

    NGD - 2001 Backbreaker, I mean Marshall 1962 Bluesbreaker Reissue

    Thumbing through FB marketplace at work last night I came across this for sale. It was for sale by someone I’ve done deals with before. He’s a great guy to deal with. This has been a bucket list amp to try out for years.. it towers over a Fender Twin Reverb in size.. I bought an amp that’s...

    I can’t make a Fender sound good I guess? Lol

    Well I moved the strat on to a new home…. I’m gonna make another attempt with one with more modern appointments.. I think the combination of radius and scale is where it was tough to get the hang of. I’ve owned guitars that were 25.5 and never had a huge problem.. but they also had a 12in or...

    I can’t make a Fender sound good I guess? Lol

    I think the reason for the 9.5 on the American originals is because probably sales…. Their sales would take a hit with a 7.25 radius.. just my thoughts anyhow. It’s not as flat as a lot of modern styled guitars but not quite the full on vintage 7.25… And I read that the American original line...

    I dunno, I guess not everyone is made to play Hendrix tunes other than on the radio lol. Such a slave to routine… LPs and SGs

    Refinished and refretted ‘81 Custom market value?

    Well I wasn’t in the market to seek out an ‘81.. I just saw it for sale and wondered if that was a comparable price to similar conditioned ones of that year. It being my birth year made me wonder.. had it been any other year.. I would of scrolled right passed it.

    Refinished and refretted ‘81 Custom market value?

    Stumbled across one on the local Craigslist.. I don’t mind the fret job since it is 40 years old and the original frets were real small provided it was done well. The refin looks pretty good. From the photos it looks like it wasn’t super recent from the patina.. pickups have been changed also...

    If you had 10,000 dollars to buy any Les Paul and you had to spend it all on only 1, what would you buy?

    I would try my luck at finding a Pearly Gates model from the late 00s for that kind of money.. they rarely dip down that low these days though..

    Best LP Custom for under $2000 used

    I’d look at an Edwards.. they’re fantastic for the money

    2007 Epi SG, thoughts on purchase?

    I would be concerned that it’s been sitting with no strings.. most people who leave a guitar stringless don’t think to straighten the neck to combat the lack of strings.. it would be worth putting a cheap set of strings on it to make sure the neck isn’t an eternal banana. Better to spend 5 bucks...

    Why do all videos have a 40%-50% intro full of

    After the vast majority of the video being about details ya can read anywhere.. when they finally strike a chord it’s out of tune. While all that gum flapping was going on they could of kicked on the tuner and fixed that up. Maybe they just can’t tell when it’s out of tune :squint:
