    Incoming! Caution: PRS content

    Ordered my first PRS yesterday... a 2020 Core series Paul's Guitar. I had a heck of a time finding one of this model with what I consider to be a subtle top. Nearly every one I looked at on-line had crazy flames and garish looking colors. Here are a couple dealer photos... Can't wait to get...

    New Trinity 18 Watt build

    Finished up my Trinity 18 Watt Plexi MK II this afternoon. I ordered it with Trinity's VRM (Voltage Regulation Module) which allows the user to lower the B+ voltage. With the control all the way down the amp puts out 5 or 6 watts... all the way up it's a full 18 watts. In my opinion, It doesn't...

    '69 Super Reverb project... What would you do?

    I recently got a pretty good deal on a '69 Super Reverb, but it has a few issues. It's got a (1971) 013897 output transformer and the speakers are a quad of 1970 Jensen C10N 16 ohm. The OT has a center tap, and it's wired for 4 ohm output, so it matches the 4 ohm load of the C10Ns. The rest of...

    Portrait of my '65

    Dragged out the studio lights today because I'm shooting the church directory this weekend and I need to practice a bit beforehand... I couldn't think of a better subject than my '65 SG to practice on!

    '82 Custom on local CL - is $3K a fair price?

    I'm sorta kinda interested in this '82 Custom advertised in the local CL... Here's the ad: https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/msg/d/olympia-1982-gibson-les-paul-custom/6860274871.html Any opinions on this one? Asking price is $3K, and I think it's on consignment at Music 6000 in Olympia. I'd...

    My uncle gave me his '65 SG (long story, lots of photos!)

    That's right, a '65 SG. He bought it new in 1966, along with a '66 Harmony H415 amp, from a music store in Hamilton, OH. They were having a 'fire sale', and it had suffered minor damage from the fire... the inlays were lifting in a few places. Other than that, it was in new condition when he...

    My '74 ES-335TD

    My latest acquisition, a '74 ES-335TD. Modded by the original owner with Grovers, stop bar conversion, speed knobs, Bill Lawrence L-100 pickups, coil-split toggles and an out-of-phase toggle for the bridge pickup. First thing I did was get a fret job... the originals had been dressed down to...

    Wanted: Gibson Dog-Ear P90 and L.P. Junior Wiring Harness

    Long shot, but I'm guessing a few of you may have upgraded your stock P-90 Junior with a boutique P-90 and/or wiring harness. Don't let those parts sit around and collect dust... Sell them to me! I need 'em for a project. :cheers:

    Please help identifying pickups

    So today I got myself a '74 ES-335TD that has seen a few mods over the years. I suspect the pickups were replaced back in the '70s or '80s with what may be DiMarzios, but I'm hoping someone on the forum can help me ID them... Resistance readings are 12.52K bridge, 12.46K neck. No...

    I just bought a 1985 Les Paul Reissue (Prehistoric) described as near mint, except for tarnished hardware and a small superficial scratch on the back. All original parts and OHSC... $3250. Did I pay too much, or did I do okay? Hopefully it should arrive around the end of next week. Here's a...

    New Bicycle Day!

    Bored... Nothing to do.

    My kids used to say that. Today I feel the same way. This is the 2nd day in a row that the air quality is rated "Unhealthy" due to smoke from B.C and Eastern Washington wildfires. I want to be out riding my bike, but at my age I need to take care, heed the warnings and stay indoors. Sometime...

    Mountain Lion attack near North Bend, WA. One dead, one injured.

    This happened yesterday, a few miles away from where I live... Cougar attacks are pretty rare, but they DO happen. Tragic. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/deadly-cougar-attack-north-bend-washington-2018-05-20/

    Speaker repair

    I recently got a beautiful '71 Princeton Reverb with a replacement speaker installed. The original speaker was included in the deal, but it needs to be repaired. Sounds fizzy... like the voice coil is rubbing. Anyone have a recommendation for speaker repair/recone/rebuild service? Thanks!

    Pickguard for '96 LP Standard

    I recently bought a '96 Les Paul Standard that was missing the pickguard. Anyone know where I can get one? I've checked all the usual places... Mojoaxe, Creamtone, Crazyparts, Allparts, Stewmac, Philly Luthiers Supply. Apparently pre-'98 Gibson USA pickguards are slightly different from...
