    That sounds promising. Might have to give it another go 'round.

    Amigo SoCal Guitar show 1/18-1/19

    Just curious if anyone is heading out to the show this weekend? https://www.amigoguitarshows.com/socal-2/ Went to the summer show a few years back and was a bit let down. Couple of cool pieces, but mostly run of the mill stuff. Heard the winter show is supposed to be better. Can anyone...

    Indian or Bolivian Rosewood?

    Unfortunately, Gibson will typically only confirm whatever the spec. is for the RI year in question, and even then they tend to be non-committal. Being a NAMM show guitar may improve the chances some, but my bet is that they'll simply state it should be Indian, but could be Bolivian.

    Thoughts and opinion on a 2008 Gibson LP R8 (Maple Syrup Burst)

    That is a smokin deal for a '18 R7

    Indian or Bolivian Rosewood?

    I have a Indian rosewood fretboard from Stewmac that I used for the restoration of a parlor guitar I did. It has a fair amount of red in it as well. Not as noticable in this pic, but much more so when its been freshly oiled as in your pics.

    Indian or Bolivian Rosewood?

    Based upon the grain and color it looks like Indian rosewood to me. Bolivian rosewood (aka Pau Ferro) tends to be more variegated with tighter pores. Kind of a cross between rosewood and ebony.

    Thoughts and opinion on a 2008 Gibson LP R8 (Maple Syrup Burst)

    Patience and determination is key. There are deals out there, but you need to look regularly and don't hesitate when you find one you want. And try not to get caught up over specific years being better than others. In reality there are no bad years with custom shop guitars. Yes, specs have...

    Thoughts and opinion on a 2008 Gibson LP R8 (Maple Syrup Burst)

    Probably not the most desirable run of limited editions, given the serial number deviation and maple leaf. Which on one hand could make for a tough re-sell if you decide to part ways with it in the future, but on the other hand being a limited edition does add some value IMO $2800 would be...

    Incoming!

    Congrats!! Beautiful guitar!! I know the 61's have received mixed reactions, but I find the one in my LP CM to be a great pickup. Its very nuanced with a nice push in the mids that doesn't become harsh or muddy. I also really like the way it cleans up while still maintaining its sparkle and...

    2017 vs 2013 historic

    I'm in the zero difference camp. Way too many variables from one guitar to the next to attribute it to the type of glue used in assembly.

    The New 2020 Modern Collection Les Paul Tribute

    The new colors on the P90 Specials look great. Hard time wrapping my head around the $500 - 600 upcharge they're getting for gloss finishes and neck binding on the current Juniors and Specials. Wonder if these will still be the same level of quality. Not that I need another guitar, but these...

    NGD- Epi LP Special 1 P90, TV yellow

    Fair enough... I have to say that after seeing both I'm changing my vote to black.

    NGD- Epi LP Special 1 P90, TV yellow

    Since you're making the guards yourself, maybe try the tort one in a '56 LP Special style (with the wing that extends between the P90's)
