    Tokai with ebony boards?

    Αgree, that's how my Custom sounds too. Gibson rarely put ebony in Standards so brands who copy Gibson do it rarely too. Maybe with RW getting into CITES, brands will start doing it more often, Eastman does it with their SB59 model. On the other hand I feel that ebony will get into the CITES...

    Your favourite Les Paul Custom?

    I like 'em all but gold accentuates Black Beauty's class. Black is the ideal color for the Custom, IMO. In order of preference: All gold Gold with open coils, especially with gold slugs & screws Sykes look Chrome, covers or open

    Other V guitars

    Thanks, it's the only V I have seen with a Flame Mango, it's a beautiful guitar and a bargain considering the price. Momose is in another level, up with the best US brands. If you haven't played one you'll be surprised. They have a limited production, especially with Flying V's, you are very...

    Other V guitars

    Judging from my LP a Momose Korina V is the best option for someone to have a '58 type V withouth spending a high amount of money.

    Gordon Smith and "Junior" single cuts

    I've always read positive comment about GS guitars, I learned about them in the early 90's when I was reading Guitarist magazine. Here's a recent demo from them Personally, unless it's an exact replica, I don't expect guitars to sound like the "real thing". Instead I enjoy guitars that have...

    Would you buy a guitar from Japan without a HSC?

    I bought my Bacchus Flying V from Koiz (ebay & reverb seller) and my Momose LPC from Ikebe. The Flying V travelled in a generic gig bag that resembles the one of my '92 Gibson SG Special without the Gibson logo. The Momose came in a very nice gig bag with the brands name on. Both guitars were...

    My Favorite Non-Pauls

    I can understand about the LTD's in the first post but I consider guitars with the same body dimensions & headstock shape Les Pauls. They are not Gibsons but they sure are Les Pauls even if they can't write that for legal reasons.

    Bacchus V on the Way

    Both guitars posted look like mahogany to me but pics are small, can't be sure. Nothing wrong with mahogany though. Are these Japanese? Year?

    looking for proxy seller

    Thanks for the explanation. I have another question about shipping. I put the weight & dimensions for calculation and I saw several options with different companies. If I win an auction the site will let me decide or they will choose one?

    looking for proxy seller

    Can you explain how it works? For example, I make a deposit from my Paypal account. I decide the amount of money or the site? If I don't win the auction, they return the money?

    New JB Amos set

    $375 and no options! I wonder when the aged/relic thing will end.

    Greco LES PAUL CUSTOM -- new guitar incoming!! Thoughts?? [pics inside]

    If the neck shape suits you and the truss rod works everything else is easily fixable. Compared to how a Gibson LPC costs (new or used) it's a bargain and I'm guessing the quality is similar.

    Who Prefers Gold Hardware?

    I like gold equally as silver (chrome-nickel) and black. There are all colors and they make good match or contrast with other colors. I always decide according to personal taste, I don't care about tradition and vintage correctness. Before.

    Cites and ebony?

    Not yet as far as I know. I'm guessing ebony will go on the list in 2019 when there will be another CITES meeting. I had a guitar with an ebony fretboard shipped to me in January and there was no problem.

    Most Surprising Change in Direction by a Band

    I like "Justice" & "Garage Days" equally as the first three LP's. The EP was fun and Metallica always did great covers, their b-sides were interesting. They knew how to pick the right song and push it to the max. Justice had phenomenal lyrics and very good playing from all of them. Not an easy...

    Most Surprising Change in Direction by a Band

    Not just surprising but also unexpected, at least for me. The biggest sellout in R'N'R by far considering how great they were, IMO. 1991: Black Album - Metallica Different sound, different style, weak songs and a band commited to get into everyone's home. They had one seriously good video clip...
