    Top Gun Maverick

    I saw it in a preview event last Wednesday. Definitely quite a bit of nostalgia. I'm not a Tom Cruise fan, and also aware that it was basically a top notch Navy recruitment movie. Still, I always liked the old one a lot, The mix of jets, music and the young Kelly Mc Gillis - just great. The new...

    Netflix-Metal Lords

    I agree, it's an entertaining movie, great music, but that's almost it. The level of detail is way beyond a typical movie production though. I wonder how they got this Dio poster from Munich Germany, really cool.

    Les Paul double cut Standard. Thoughts?

    It`s never to late for a good answer :) I still like my DC Pro Standard a lot. Some people complained these were too PRSish, but I like PRSi as well, so it`s not a problem for me. I wouldn't recommend a DC as first Les Paul, as you would have the constant feeling of it not being a real Les Paul...

    Used prices are outrageous

    +1 LPs have been more in the 65 to 75 % range for decades, unless they had issues.

    Congrats to your new guitar, what a beauty, and I agree these are very lively guitars.

    Difference in LP tone with and without maple top.

    My understanding is that Epis have a nice veneer (e.g. AAA) on top of the maple cap.

    Difference in LP tone with and without maple top.

    I was curious and compared a few of my guitars that I currently have at home just for brightness. The differences were actually bigger than I expected, while the overall order is pretty much what I would have expected. Brightest to Darkest: Fender American Series Stratocaster Alder Body, Maple...

    Gibson Slash Les Paul Standard Limited 4 Album Edition

    I like it Thank you, great summary. Do you know if they have long or short neck tenon? If I remember correctly all standards got back to long tenons a few years ago, is it still like that?

    check out this guy's amazing drawings!

    Mark Tremonti had one Guitar painted by Joe Fenton back in 2014. It's an amazing guitar, painted back and front, even the neck. I had the chance to see it, when Mark was in Munich. For the anniversary of the Tremonti signature line PRS has teamed with Mark and Joe Fenton to make 20...

    I'm done with the Olympics and many other large international sports events. Big money and evil regimes, not my cup of tea.

    Best Color For an LP Custom

    This is a pretty bizarre question. If you are Randy Rhoads the answer is white, if not the answer is black.

    Gibson Explorers. What do you think of them?

    Got this one almost 10 years ago. I like it a lot, still it has been kind of a case queen. Explorers are beautiful and nice to play when sitting, the handling is a bit less comfortable as the are big (and the need to be big if you are on the taller side). Bill was kind enough to sign the QA...

    I have upgraded to Monterrey on my M1 Mac Mini and it runs smooth. Didn't have the guts to upgrade my i7 Mac Book Pro.
