    The Darkness! (for that 70s LP Marshall tone in the 2000s) How has Boston not been mentioned? :-) Also, as somebody already posted, Ziggy! I'll add Foreigner Double Vision.

    Original Collection GT P90's

    Don't get me wrong, I LOVE gold tops. Agree they are stunning! That said, I prefer a good burst as art because each one is so drastically unique, where gold tops (and I love them!!!) are 'same-ie'. Beautifully same-ie, but still..... :-) Congrats on the new guitar! Awesome!

    Geddy Lee has a burst?

    Redeye on The Tonight Show

    Definitely the real deal. Jason was posting about it on social day of. Will add that Jason is the best follow in the game on Twitter. Guy is as funny and clever as any comedian. I'll also add that no matter how hard I try, I can't connect w/ Sheryl Crow at all. Her voice to me has no...

    Strap button stripped. Advice on fix?

    Indeed! I have a Makita that will either snap your wrist, or break off the screw head unless you dial down the chuck. Thing has the torque of an Army tank.

    Strap button stripped. Advice on fix?

    Hate to say it but it's on my new 50s Standard, so I hate to go 'the bum, toothpicks and glue" route. (Gibson quality police stay down! - Guitar is perfect and wonderful in every other way! :))

    Strap button stripped. Advice on fix?

    Maybe I should put a touch of Gorilla glue in the threads of the screw?
