    Hurricane Isaias

    Every time I see a Hurricane watch it makes me very happy that I finally sold my house in Florida last year. After the complete devastation of Hurricane Michael and the money I had to pour in to repair the house it was time to get out of that market. We lived in the house from 1999 through...

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    Maybe those big orders are harder to fill and they are sending out onesies to the smaller shops?

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    I think so and sure do hope so! It was supposed to be here today, but it's running slow. If it's not here tomorrow they have to reimburse my shipping fee and I'm sure they don't want to do that. I'll be a posting a NGD when I get it. Now I need to sell off these Bonamassa Norm Bursts!

    Pickup Comparison VIDEO - Wizz vs ReWind vs Doyle Coils vs CustomBuckers vs Righteous Sound

    I think those Custom Buckers hold up just fine against all the rest and I don't have to spend more money or mod my guitar.

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    I lost my patience and cancelled both my orders for the Cherry and Dark Burst. What I ended up with instead is a 61'. Since I already have a Gibson LP I love I decided to do something different. My 61's is due in tomorrow. Stock Pic.

    Bestest Case :: what's your fave non-Gibson case?

    I'll second the SKB when traveling. They have always worked well for me and I've never had a guitar damaged in one...

    When does Gibson announce their new lineup?

    Just saw an add for a Brand New Trad Pro V with a Mahogany Top instead of Maple. Listed at GC for $1799

    Who's Who in Tube Amps

    The price was fantastic. The seller was a 75 year old Korean gentleman who was just ready to let everything go. He was moving and didn't want to drag the music gear with him. He was selling every musical instrument he had. Guitars, drums, piano...and just the one amp to lucky me!

    Who's Who in Tube Amps

    Just picked this up yesterday. The wife has a realtor friend who knows I'm into guitars. She called and said we need to come over to this house she just listed because the guy had a lot of guitars. Of course we jumped in the car and went right over. Oh, but what a disappointment when I saw 4...

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    If it is in fact a Prototype and has different specs than what came out it could end up being a very nice collectors item. Who knows???

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    I thought it was a bad move when they released the Epiphone Amos V and then sold set's of Amos pickups as an aftermarket thing and they weren't cheap. The Probuckers are not bad, but these special runs should have the best!

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    Yes, I have both models. I really like them a lot. I've played the standard version the most. It was set up very well and it plays so nice and smooth. I'm not in love with the Epiphone Probuckers. For such a nice Joe B. model they should have used Gibson pickups. The deluxe model is still in...

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    Not the timing so much now as the fact that I found such a sweet Gibson. I see no reason to wait. There is no way the Epiphone can match the Gibson I bought. Also the fact I have two Norm Burst Epiphones...

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    Exactly! I ordered one in February and the second on the 6th of March. At that time it was an April or May delivery. Now I'm hearing everything from August until December. My wait is over because I cancelled both orders.
