    Wizz Pearly Gates pickups

    I'd wager there is some sort of TM loophole that is being exploited being that Wizz is in Europe (Croatia?). And IMO, Duncan deserves whatever they get ( or do not get). They have done plenty of underhanded "workarounds" themselves.* *This does not mean that I agree with what WIZZ is doing here.

    Up and coming bands are choosing Fenders over Les Pauls (and other Gibson models).

    Back in the early 80s and through to about...Slash... I used to get a ration of Sheet from everyone at the local stores- employees and customers alike. I was more of a 70s rock guy equipment wise, and it was The Hairspray Era. I'd walk in with one of my Gibsons or pull them off the wall to try...

    Vintage Bursts Compared

    Got to listen to it with the studio cans. Still unsure if it's a boosted slightly crunching tube amp, or just a pedal for the dirty stuff. But with all the youtube compression..who knows. I thought they all were pretty great, and surprisingly very similar. I'd say I was partial to the 58...

    NGD 2018 Les Paul Tribute Goldtop

    It has been in storage since 1/21 and I just got it out at the beginning of this past July. I had forgot it was in "stripped" condition- no pickups, tuners, bridge, tp, etc. I was in the middle of upgrading some stuff, then had to sell our home and move during the COVIDiocy, so I just packed...

    NGD 2018 Les Paul Tribute Goldtop

    Welcome to the Club. I bought one just like it back in 2018. Sweetwater pics. Mine has a one piece back which surprised the hell out of me. It's beat and dinged to hell now. The finish is definitely thin and delicate.

    Question about the plastic black bell ?

    I think many people, myself included at times, think the blank truss rod cover (TRC) looks more elegant AND historically correct. That said, I like to screw with people and I've put the Traditional TRC on my Tribute and the Tribute TRC on my Traditional in the past. I'd like to find something...

    Vintage Bursts Compared

    Sounds like a pedal on top of the clean amp. I'm a Marshall guy, but it didn't sound bad to me distorted. Knowing my ears it probably IS a Marshall :laugh2: Edit- gonna listen on my studio cans later. Thanks for posting this!

    Decent discount Slash LP these days?

    Several months ago, Gibson indicated that the limited edition colors (Red and Green) were being discontinued and they both went on sale everywhere. As for the discrepancy now with only Red and November at AMS/ZZounds my suggestion would be to call the retailers or Gibson for answers- I'm not...

    Decent discount Slash LP these days?

    Small shops don't have the purchasing power or ability to survive under the same slim margins as the big online retailers do. They deal in FAR less volume and thus never got the guitars at a similar price as AMS/ZZz/Whomever, and they need to make more on each instrument to stay in business. So...

    Decent discount Slash LP these days?

    Exactly. I'd love to have a November to pair up with my Amber- $2499 is less than I paid for the amber over 2 years ago.

    Decent discount Slash LP these days?

    I edited my post. It looks as though AMS/ZZounds is blowing them out. I'm guessing something new is coming for Xmas/NAMM.

    Decent discount Slash LP these days?

    Never mind/Edit- you are correct....looks like the blem is 2449, and they are selling new for $2500. That's nuts. The red and green ones have been on sale for months as they are limited colors and being phased out.

    The Mighty Dimarzio super distortion

    Here's an idea. Why don't you grow up and stop shitting on someone else's thread who is happy with what they bought? I could spend days talking about how fucked up Seymour Duncan the company is- they have done plenty of shitty business things, including lying to their customers for years and...

    The Mighty Dimarzio super distortion

    This- exactly what the Super II was designed for. Way better neck pickup match, if you want more output in the neck than a typical PAF-ish pickup.
