    NGD - 2018 Standard in Mojave Burst

    I had burstbuckers in a Studio that I have. Didn't like them either. Replaced them with "Pearly Gates". I love that guitar's sound now, however, for some odd reason, I rarely play it. Go figure.. Less complicated is good too. I've got a Trad Pro V that has phase, coil tap and split. I'll...

    What has happened to The Used Guitar Market Pricing?

    The current situation has an upside. Gives you the incentive to buy new, when used prices are so high, you can justify the difference in price.

    Is This Normal?

    Sorry about that. I misread your post somehow. Didn't mean to put words in your mouth. And yes, Sweet Water is very easy to deal with in my experience. Enjoy your new guitar, now that you have the info you need and can breathe easy.

    Is This Normal?

    I see a SweetWater label there. Are they the "Vendor". If so, I seriously doubt that it's a forgery. I don't think theiy're going to risk a multi-million dollar operation, and jail time just to screw one guy out of a few bucks on forgeries, snuck in throught the back door. That's why I shop...

    is this real mahogany gibson 2002 studio lp?

    My Studio was built in 2016. It was a model that was limited, it only came in three colors, all faded. Mine is the faded Wine color. I think it came in faded Wine, Brown and black?? I'm thinking about $600 USD, I bought a mint 2016, faded wine color for $650 USD, and installed some Pearly...

    Is there something not right about this one?

    Walk into GC, Sweetwater, Local mom and Pop's and buy locally. New if possible. That way you'd know forever that it's is what it is.

    Good Bad and Ugly

    I'm thinking you will want to kick your own ass too. One person mentioned it feeling off, from your acclimation to the Jr. I play Strat's, Tele's PRS and Les Pauls, and an EPI Casino. Ones a TRAD PRO V. First, let me tell you, when you're playing a number of different guitars in a day, or a...

    is this real mahogany gibson 2002 studio lp?

    Yes, call a decent Luthier/Tech and ask them how much to replace the nut, unless you can do it yourself. It's really not that expensive, and you can consider that in your offer to the seller. I didn't see that, but my eyes are "maturing".....

    is this real mahogany gibson 2002 studio lp?

    Everything looks right. There's a serial number on the back that you can look up on Gibsons website. Generally no body fakes guitars like this. Lower priced studio's wouldn't be worth it. Although it doesn't hurt to check, especially on high dollar Gibsons and other guitars, not everything...

    Who loves playing their Les Paul mellow and clean?

    I have a Trad Pro V, and I like to play with the split, tap and phase in clean mode too. A pleasant change once in a while.

    Charlie Daniels - RIP

    Listened to him ever since I was a teen. He'll be missed, that's for sure.

    Les paul over PRS

    Can't say that I completely agree with you, but you do bring some heavy advice to the table. Can't agree with you, because I have two LP's that, even with humbuckers, the body, wood and neck make a world of difference. Not better, but different. And I love it. The LP's just sound different...
