    2020 just keeps on giving for automakers!

    You Brits opted for traffic signals over a roundabout? That's the craziest thing in this thread.

    Les Pauls vs SGs- Price

    Desirability is most of it. Why only charge $x for something when you can get $xx for it?

    Nice. Is that vintage or a relic? It's a guitar forum, come on. :laugh2: I used to agree, that's what started this, I had a 110 Pro and sold it maybe three weeks ago. I love how it's just a huge chunk of metal in your pocket, but then I got these, and the fidget factor took over. Even the...

    Getting new 60th Anniversary R9, gloss or VOS?

    I own both and don't like gloss anymore. The 64RI SG I ordered last year is gloss and that was a mistake because if the pickup covers or tailpiece get a smudge it sticks out like a sore thumb. I much VOS prefer hardware and wish I ordered it that way.

    Some of you are not going to like this... need to be politically correct about this, too? :laugh2: Point is, don't open threads that may upset you. If you do, something like a COVID thread, expect half of the replies will have a different opinion than yours.

    Some of you are not going to like this...

    People will always have different opinions than you will and you will never change theirs no matter what. This is a guitar forum. Come here to talk guitars and ignore the threads that upset you. That's all there is to is. Best of luck with those family issues.

    I'll stick with overpriced micarta. You stick with pink. :laugh2:

    Just Looking For Car Color Opinions (Poll)

    First your Clapton collection, now this, you need to stay away from televisions and images. :laugh2: I think the original blue looks best. Sweet car. My dad bought a new 1972 Mach 1, 351C, I always hated that design, and he kept it all the way until about 2010. It was kept outdoors for its...

    A simple question

    People have tucked guitars under their beds literally for decades. I wouldn't worry about it. Just check up on them from time to time if you're storing them.

    End Of A Venerable V8 Engine

    Yes, true. Same goes for V8 Mustangs and air cooled motorcycles. On their way out due to emissions. Turbo/superchargers wear out engines sooner but are more fuel efficient.

    R8 Pricing advice. "selling" maybe?

    It's modified, that's why. Would you pay the same for a car that's been repainted vs one with original paint? Paint is paint, right? Put the original back in, sell it, sell the BK separately.

    Then there's aftermarket. Man, I will never complain about what pickups and whatnot cost ever again. These are both aftermarket micarta scales. The top pair cost me $81 US. The bottom (was the grey handle knife from the first picture) was $103US. Another set for one of the red handle knives...

    @Howard2k Those two red handle Spydercos were used, but used as in the same condition most R9s for sale are in, never used. :laugh2: The rest were new from either Thunderbird Gear in Bolton, S&R Knives in Toronto, Blades Canada out of BC, and Atlantic Knives from Halifax.

    No, I can only buy from Canadian sites. Canada Customs tends to seize flippers that open freely or with one hand. Some make it through but I'm not going to chance it. I like that one a lot. Murdered out Griptilian. :laugh2:
