    Murphy Lab Finish Repair - Not!

    I'd BE VERY unhappy if I spent a small fortune on a specific guitar, sent it back due to a fault and it was replaced with a different guitar without Gibson checking with me first. The first guitar looks a lot better than the replacement to me.

    Do plain tops, gold tops really sound better than flame tops?

    Nonsense - no difference at all.

    Opportunity to buy back my old Les Paul... Thoughts.?

    Have you played it recently? You may find that absence has made the heart grow fonder and you no longer like it. The refret and pick-up repair may have changed it's playability and character.

    NGD Damaged Guitar - Thoughts?

    Can't believe you're not naming and shaming the dealer - they sound totally unreasonable. Someone else could go through the same pain you've experienced with them. I'd feel very uncomfortable feeling like I had the chance to possibly help a fellow guitarist and didn't.

    Marshall DSL40C failed mid-gig last night

    Still can't replicate the problem - as the amp is in my #1 gigging rig I can't take the chance of it happening again. I think I'll replace all of the valves and keep them as spares. If only there was a quick, easy and cheap way to test valves! Thanks for all your help gents! ;)

    Marshall DSL40C failed mid-gig last night

    Well this is frustrating! Removed an EL34 last night to see if one of those was the culprit, played for 10 minutes without any problems so obviously thought that must be the problem. I thought I'd put the valve back in, just to confirm so I did and played for half an hour with no problems at...

    Marshall DSL40C failed mid-gig last night

    Towards the end of the first set of my gig last night my Marshall combo packed in. It was making a God-awful loud buzzing sound intermittently which I thought may be due to a dodgy lead or bad FX pedal lead connection. I gradually removed my pedals between songs, in case that was the issue -...

    Gordon Smith and "Junior" single cuts

    I had a double cut GS1 from the mid to late 80s around 10 years ago and was thoroughly underwhelmed by it - soon sold it on.
