    Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro

    I still have my EPI Ttad Pro I bought new in 2015. It is a solid player. Setup was not bad, but I took it to my tech for a setup anyway, and that really made it perfect, as long as you like the slim taper neck. Couldn't believe how much improvement there was. Still like it.

    Kalamazoo factory auction

    Since you are so hellbent on being right, I'll give that to you. You are right. I meant what you thought. Go ahead and ignore the other posts here, you will believe what you want to believe. You win! I'm done, even if you're not. Have a nice day, and get a good nite's sleep.

    Kalamazoo factory auction

    I'm sorry I don't mean to be harsh, but I will be bluntly honest. Because you can't "figure out what else that means" is still no reason to presume theft. As you can see from subsequent posts, it means other ways than theft. Despite what you think. Presumptions get you in trouble, you know...

    Kalamazoo factory auction

    There is a lot for me to disagree with here. First of all you are presuming what I refer to are stolen parts. From what I could gather, they were not stolen. No more that the auctioned parts, And there can be plenty different about unfinished parts. The guitar I refereed to that I have us...

    Kalamazoo factory auction

    IF there was one or more of these sales, one was 1984? Any other dates tossed around? It is also my understanding that there were also unfinished bodies and necks that went out the door in other ways too, like employees. And there were shops in the area that routinely sold "new" guitars that...

    Its a 2014 Memphis ‘63 ES 335 VOS considered a 50th Anniversary ?

    Nice! I'm not sure, but I don't think there is anything that makes it an anniversary model other that it came out in an anniversary year. You can call it an anniversary model, but there is no significance. It is definitely a killer model no matter what you call it. I think the model number is...

    ES-335 Legit?

    Essentially true. Serial number is like Memphis too. I'm wondering why the sticker inside is not shown? I'm sure it would tell you that this was made in Memphis. True Nashville Custom Shop models in 2010 had CS serial numbers. Back in the earlier days at Memphis they unashamedly used the...

    He did like it loud. He'd turn it up much more than your typical blues player.

    Who owns a Gibson ES-335 DOT Studio 2019 Model?

    I have a 2016 that looks to be essentially the same thing, but with black binding. I have other ES-3xx models and I have to say I'm impressed with the Studio. May be the best bang for the buck in the ES lineup...

    NGD: 2019 (2018) Memphis ES-335 DOT - A Journey

    Good point. Temp and humidity changes can physically change the setup. And multiple swings in temp and humidity can compound that. Simple physics.

    NGD: 2019 (2018) Memphis ES-335 DOT - A Journey

    While we're at it, I'm having a little trouble understanding your evaluation here. Solution being to play unplugged like you do plugged in?

    NGD Firebird 1

    I did, Just had to have one. Bought a FB V because I wanted a "traditional" one. Glad I did. Would;t ever be my favorite, or "go to", but I really like it. And the Vintage Sunburst with the 9-ply neck is a work of art.

    'New' 60's Cherry.....anyone got pics?

    I see what you are saying, but I strongly suggest you look at them in person. Not only do they vary considerably, I think you will find even ones like this to look a lot better in person. The reds do not photograph well.
