    Yes it seems so. I have let you all down and I hang my head in shame. I promise I will royally F up the next one but for now the next most worthy candidate should receive the award instead.

    Well… I done went and did it now. Prepare the MLP Dumbass Award

    Well this is the part of the story I was sure would never happen. I have to eat my words. Apologize to the universe and have egg on my face. I wrote the original post right after the payment as I was certain it was a deal too good to be true. What you folks don’t know is right after 2 days...

    Russian Air Defense System Shoots Itself

    Couldn’t have happened to better group of guys. It’s always nice to see folks get what they deserve.

    Well… I done went and did it now. Prepare the MLP Dumbass Award

    I’ll add this to the story that this guitar I been trying to track down that in the rare instance that they do come up for sale usually sell very quick, or are very over priced from what they sold for new or are totally beat up which is the case mostly. Why I took the Japan risk and didn’t want...

    Well… I done went and did it now. Prepare the MLP Dumbass Award

    As the title says it’s likely time once again to hand out the MLP Dumbass of the Year award. My acceptance speech is likely forth coming. I saw a guitar I’ve been chasing in nice condition at a acceptable price. I had a terrible moment of weakness today. I cast off all logical thought. I said...

    What fretboard wood is on this 2012 Studio silverburst?

    This probably solves the mystery. As this ad shows the Studio Deluxe models got a stained maple fretboard that year. https://www.chicagomusicexchange.com/products/gibson-les-paul-studio-deluxe-ii-sunburst-2012-972245

    What fretboard wood is on this 2012 Studio silverburst?

    Silverburst was not offered in 2012 only silver pearl. Unless its a dealer exclusive which many of them had rosewood on their exclusive models that year and not the granadillo the basic models got EDIT: They did do a silverburst in 2012 but it was a Studio Deluxe model which explains why it does...

    What fretboard wood is on this 2012 Studio silverburst?

    I don’t think the guitar is a 2012 because silverburst was not offered that year. For the wood I say its rosewood and a very nice piece of it after viewing the video. 2012 Studios had a Granadillo fretboard factory. 2010 was the last year ebony was used on Studios and then only on silverburst...

    Troglodytes? Trogly is cool

    Trogly learned much of what he knows from being a newbie here for several years before his channel was started. Then he shit all over MLP in one of his videos and that was probably a mistake

    Anyone know about tube testers

    I can tell you just about anything you’d want to know about tube testers. That one is not something you are going to want to buy most likely. There’s just not much going on with that particular unit that has any real appeal to most tube users these days. First off it’s an extremely basic model...

    Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard Trial

    I totally agree. For me what proved what a sociopath she is was the recording of them fighting over him spilling wine on her. A good woman and a kind woman would take the wine glass from his hand and get him a blanket if he’s bombed and nodding off. But she doesn’t and starts recording and...

    question for mechanics

    Ok I mentioned that was possible so you just buy a new rubber dust boot for $5 and install it. But what is perplexing is that tie rod was just just undone recently because that castle nut and cotter pin are relatively new and would rust the first time they see water and they both look pretty...

    question for mechanics

    The part you have circled is the dust boot for the tie rod which looks to have been very recently replaced. If you are concerned because you are seeing grease oozing from it don’t be unless you can clearly see a rip in the boot. Otherwise some seepage is completely normal as the dust boots have...

    New Les Paul- Crack around Nut/binding

    Just a finish check in the clear coat with a little dirt rubbed into it. Don’t sweat it. You see how the crack ends exactly where the clear coat ends on the nut side. That how you know its just a natural lacquer check

    Gibson vs. Dean Verdict Decided

    The way I read it is Dean may have to only pay $4000 in damages financially but that they are gonna take a huge hit probably on tons of guitars they have built that they are now not allowed to sell and have to immediately revamp a lot of their product line. Of course Dean’s statement is gonna...

    Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard Trial

    My prediction is Johnny Depp wins with a 10 million dollar award. All his divorce money back and they ding her a few million on top
