    NGD: American Jimmy Page Signature Telecaster

    You’re actually a lot closer than you think; RAH was Jimmy’s 59’ No.1 Les Paul and his 3 pickup Custom. He had retired the Tele by then.

    String Change Frequency

    Man. I would go broke changing at those rates. I play for an hour/half every day, 5-6 days a week without fail. I change maybe once a month. I would be highly doubtful if the new formula strings and stability of metals would necessitate changing strings weekly for me.

    “Downgrading” From an R8. What Should I Look For?

    I hate to be that guy, but if I were you, I would keep the R8. Buy a moderately priced Martin and then work your way up to a nicer one if/when you realize this phase isn't a phase. I seriously regret selling my LP's whenever I got the itch to move to something else. So many times I thought I...

    Marshall 1959HW Preamp Tube Blown

    It was exactly that. Swapped the ECC83 in V1 and that fixed it. Thanks!

    Marshall 1959HW Preamp Tube Blown

    EDIT: Fixed. Was the ECC83 in V1. Playing my 1959HW today and the volume suddenly dropped. Testing the amp, the Normal Channel seems to be fine but the Hi Treble makes no noise. Is it safe to assume this is a preamp tube? Or is something else possibly at play?

    Thread of interesting/unusual tops!

    My 16' Std Historic. It has a small little "bruise" on the lower left bout where the dye from the back has transferred to the front.

    Thread of interesting/unusual tops!

    What a beaut. I love plaintops. I'd take a plaintop R8 over a flametop R9 anyday. My R8 has quite a bit of flame too. Enjoy your ugly duckling!

    Why LED zeppelin is so well known?

    Just takes a single match to strike a flame I guess. MC5's with Kick out the Jams. In A Gadda Da Vida, etc. All influential photo-metal songs as well.

    Barrie Cadogan Plays a 1959 Gibson Les Paul

    THANK YOU. I have been trying to figure out what Al Green song that was for months.

    Why LED zeppelin is so well known?

    OP, it's a hard question to answer because the comparison just isn't fair. Gary is in a long progression of musicians. You can easily argue he's a better songwriter, or more technically proficient than Page. But I would argue that there are guitarists coming out now that are far greater players...

    Why LED zeppelin is so well known?

    Gonna have to disagree with you on this one. I would say heavy metal was created 1 Year earlier with a little band called Blue Cheer and a song called Summertime Blues.
