Acquired the last piece of the puzzle yesterday.
'64 FB I, '64 FB III, '63 FB V, '63 FB VII.
All original originals without breaks, except the Pelham blue, which was refinished but is otherwise all original and no breaks.
I recorded this over pandemic and released it on Feb 4, 2021. It was my pandemic project. I did all of the instruments and vocals.
TL;DR: Listen to the last track if you want to hear the best recorded song.
Let's get nerdy.
'55 Les Paul Junior w/ 1960 PAFs
'63 Firebird VII...
I have a '63 Firebird VII. A real one. The wiring in the cavity has never been touched, but I can see that someone fussed with the switch a little.
Currently, it's wired to stock.
2: Mid/Bridge Out-of-Phase
I hate the middle position sound. I wish the pickups were in...
This was my pandemic project. 100% me: vocals, guitars, bass, mandolin, etc... all me.
Guitars in this:
'55 Les Paul Strings & Things with 1960 double black PAFs
'63 Firebird VII
'64 Firebird III
'64 Firebird I
'68 SG Standard
'71 Les Paul Deluxe
'86 Fender MIJ Rosewood...
Got a good deal on this. Offered lower than the asking price on Reverb and got it for what I was willing to pay.
It arrives in my possession tomorrow. Per request by the resident 6G9 evangelist, @Soul Tramp, I am posting pics of the amp and its guts.
I've had this for a while. I don't tend to buy crap, and can't recall ever buying a shitty P90, but that doesn't mean this isn't crap. I'm selling all my gear I no longer touch or haven't used in years, but have no idea what this might be.
Any help would be great. It's a braided wire, but the...
I don't know where else to put this question. I don't want it to go into the main LP forum because there will be 900 people saying "I don't know," it doesn't quite fit in the Vintage SG forum, and is a bit esoteric for the Norlin years. It's more of a technical question about shipping dates vs...
If any of you are considering this, please back off:
@macg1 was looking into it, but the seller said "The pickups and hardware are from '69, not sure about the body." The stamp on the headstock is wrong, dates to the wrong year. It's...
I know that there were very few custom ordered Standards before '74. They're almost all Deluxes which have been modified. Even the few that are verifiable are still hard to be certain about.
A friend has a '71 Standard that looks entirely legit. Years and years ago, I remember a discussion...
One of 20 made in '63. No breaks, beautiful condition. Two piece neck, as opposed to the 3 to 9 piece layered necks. (My '63 III has a 5 piece neck.)
Anyhow, here it is.
And next to my '63 Firebird III.
I figured this might be the best place to ask this.
I recently acquired a pair of 1960 double black PAFs which I am going to put into a '55 LP Junior already routed for humbuckers. Obviously, I've got double-whites in this now; these aren't the pickups, just showing off the guitar.
I received this guitar on Wednesday. She's a '58 with a factory installed Bigsby, though it came with the original Byrdland tailpiece. It says ES-350T in the cavity, but it has the ebony neck, block inlays, and correct TP... perhaps it was custom ordered this way.
I'm having difficulty...
I just got a 1958 Byrdland with the original PAFs still in. These guys tend not to be as molested as other models because the pole spacing is tighter than standard PAFs due to the thinner neck and scale.
I'm curious if anybody has A/B'd the short spacing against a standard PAF? If so...
A few years back, I bought a '74 LP with a bunch of '50s accouterments, including bridge and posts, tuners, tailpiece and studs. It also came with a '50s case. I'm finally going to get rid of the case. I was hoping someone might be able to give me an idea on what I might expect to fetch for it...
This is my guitar. It can be heard on this song for both the main electric track and the slide solo...
Today I pitted my '71 GT against a '56. It came into the store recently and I had the notion to go do an A/B. The intent was to see whether it would be worth it to me to buy a '56 over the '71.
The weight of the '56 was about 8.25 pounds. Mine, with a Bigsby, is about 9. Without, it's about...
I acquired a '60 Super-Amp recently. It's a great amp, sounds unbelievable. It had no panels on the back, so a friend made some for me, but all he had was rough blonde tolex, not rough brown. I have access to equipment to dye this correctly, but I don't know the color code for the...
