    Pale fretboard on a 2009 studio?

    It looks like a great guitar. Don't allow you to box off your mind to Gibson tropes like mahogany, rosewood, ebony, etc. A good guitar can be made out any kind of material.

    Sweetwater down to their last in stock Gibson electric guitar

    Gibson? I don't think I'll get a new Fender bass until possibly fall. Summer is the closest prediction they'll have some stock in.

    I really want a H150 but with a three piece maple neck. I contacted the Custom Shop and the rep told me they used to use that neck configuration but no longer do it.

    Is this Ash ?

    Depends on the guitar. My American sunburst Jazz is alder while my former American Jazz clear was distinctly labeled as ash. Ash even before the ash was a feature.

    My LP Traditional strap slipped off 2 times while playing today...

    No one to blame but yourself. Buy a few Grolsch washers or a pair of strap locks. Not a lot of money either option.

    My favorite of the new line. Might have to buy one.

    I think its time to hang my Les Paul...

    Only retire a guitar when it becomes impossible to refret or the neck warps.

    Bigsby. Love it or loathe it on a Les Paul? What do you think?

    I like them. They're not a great device on a mahogany neck, though.
