    Gibson Les Paul Traditional question

    I decided it’ll never get sold. It’s one that I just can’t get rid of. After it’s chambered it will most definitely get used. I have no worries about the fretboard or anything else on the guitar. These guys have been doing this stuff since the 60s and they’ve built a couple for me so I have...

    Gibson Les Paul Traditional question

    My 2012 Trad Pro is at Lay’s guitar shop getting chambered. It weighed 10.6lbs which is just too heavy for this old guy Getting a new back and refinished to match the front. I got this new and it originally had cream plastic. I added the vibramate and Bigsby. The guitar plays and sounds...

    2019 R8 REFRET

    Why no nibs? Not that you need or miss them, but I’ve had my guitars re-fretted and the place where I go in Akron, Ohio always leaves the nibs. Here’s an SG CustomI had done and the nibs are still there.

    Wildwood Tom Murphy Painted Worth the Upcharge?

    Question. What would stop somebody that lives in Toronto from taking a ride to say, Ohio or Michigan and buying a guitar in the States? And then putting it in their trunk and driving home? This may be a dumb question but I live in Ohio and I thought our borders were pretty open and friendly. I...

    What's the deal with LP weight?

    I thought long and hard on this. The back was a thin Pelham blue originally. Trad Pro doesn’t have a gloss back. You can see the grain. I’ve decided to just keep it Pelham but gloss like the front. They said they can match the front perfectly It was either this or gloss black. I will post...

    What's the deal with LP weight?

    I’m having a 10.6 lb Pelham Blue Les Paul Trad Pro chambered as I type this. It’s a beautiful guitar and plays great. I paid $1400 for it in 2012 and for $650 I’m having it chambered and leaving a center block. Getting a new back and having the back painted. I hate a heavy guitar. The only...

    Most versatile tube amp?

    They have this reputation of being a “Metal Amp”. I mean can do the scooped overdrive thing perfect, but there’s also a few hundred other things it can do also. One of the best clean channels for ANY money. I’m 66 years old and gig a lot in a band that does everything from Elton John and Bee...
