    Weight relief pic.

    Should be noted that not all Traditionals are like that. Most years have what's listed as Custom/Classic. Would have been cool if they included Class 5s.

    What is this historic R8 - 2017 made with 2018 spec?

    Another stupid move by Gibson that was short lived. They made Rs in 2017 but just called them Standards.

    Is running a country an important role?

    That pic of Trudeau doesn't bother me any because there was no racist intent behind it (in my opinion) and it won't sway me when I vote because it was just a costume. Not the same but I dressed up as Jason Voorhies a few years ago and covered my head/face in a black makeup paste to represent...

    Trade War and used guitar prices

    I agree, especially with SG Standards. I'm near Toronto. Standards used to be in the $700 - $1,000 range. Now everyone wants $1,400 and won't take less than $1,200.

    Throbak pickups question

    You know this forum has a pickups section, right? I had an SG with DT-102s and never cared for the neck much but the bridge was great. Two other sets of MXVs with NOS wire I have are fantastic.

    Never even heard of anything like this before

    Gotta be honest and ask yourself how did/does it sound. The only time I'm not interested in live music is when it sounds like crap. R&B, dance, disco, trance, country, pop all fall into this crap category.

    Conned by Roxxy

    Roxie posted this on TGP, July 25. Both sides to this story are suspect. Ugh! I don’t even know where to start, but ANY advice would sure be helpful. I sold my burst replica to a guy I met here on the gear page. We did a partial trade on some pickups and the rest in cash. He insisted on a...

    To sell or not to sell... a 2010 Junior

    I don't see the point keeping guitars you don't use. What about buying the new guitar and deciding what to sell afterwards? You could always just keep one in the case or add another wall hanger. :)

    Break in period...achievement unlocked!

    For those who believe in this, what makes a guitar break in is the constant string vibration affecting the wood, so it would not apply to a guitar just sitting in its case untouched for a while. You simply have too many guitars and don't remember how much you liked this one.

    Found what I was referring to.

    Pack of motorcycles running red light

    I can't remember which state but I recall reading that it was considered or passed law permitting motorcycle processions to have right-of-way through intersections and be able to run reds. Maybe you live in the same state. I don't agree with it, just remember reading it last year.
