    Shhhh! His wife probably told him he needed to clear out some gear. ”I put it up for sale. It's not my fault no one is buying!”

    Still looking for this LP Classic

    In what city and how did you sell it (Craigslist, Ebay, Pawn Shop, etc.)? Some clues could help narrow it down (or broaden the search if not sold locally).

    Earthquakes the depths

    I have tried a bunch in the last few years including the Depths. My Vibe journey has led me through the Dano Chicken Salad, the Wilson Haze Vibe, the Fulltone Deja Vibe, the TC Viscous Vibe, the Drybell Vibe Machine, and of course the Depths. Of those, my Les Paul likes the Depths the best. It...

    Soldier "Slash" style strap

    I just got mine. It is nice for what it is, but I feel the leather will peel as in the above pic with lots of use. It reminds me of the material that is now used for less expensive belts and shoes. You can see the multiple plies or layers when holding in from the side. On the plus side, you...

    Send it back. If you took the time to post about it, it will likely never be "right" in your eyes.

    Gibson Firebird 2014 - Opinions?

The pickups are ceramic magents and kind of harsh. I remember thinking that I would need to swap out the bridge with an Antiquity or...

    Well it WAS a brand new guitar...

    What happened? I have seen a lot of cracks in finishes in the same spot caused by a careless nut installation. Yours seems to be in the wood and due to something different. Story?
