    Echo Park Guitars Building Gibson’s Now

    I can’t believe that making decent accessible guitars would TARNISH the high end reputation. A brand for the gigging musician obviously.

    Best ship I ever had! Home for 3 1/2 years! I was gutted she went out of service, don’t make em like that anymore.

    Match your Historic to Beauty of The Burst

    I’m picky as hell, and I’d love to find a cracking example that matched my 2008 R9 because it would mean my historic is true to the cause, but there are none that I can see that really say “yes”. It’s all in good fun, but can anyone say that my R9 matches? Open to options here ladies and gents!

    Most Desirable Runs of Historic R9 Les Pauls

    You know, that’s a really good point, I don’t how valid it is towards guitars in the sense that Gibson will still have made historics that year and people will still have bought them, and the numbers made and sold should equate; unless all the 2008’s are all still sat getting dusty on display. I...

    Most Desirable Runs of Historic R9 Les Pauls

    I don’t think they are necessarily uncommon, I just haven’t seen that many in here. I’m sure they are out there just as much as any other year but I generally don’t see them. I always like it when they turn up so I can compare tops and see how a like they are.

    How Many Of You Tried Your Historic Before You Bought It?

    I did, I travelled an hour or so to play my first R8, it was on sale second hand in a shop up the road. I tried a few other historics while I was there, couple of R9’s, another second hand R8, I ended up taking home the 2008 VOS, great guitar. My first R9 was a chancer, I saw a stunner on eBay...

    I don’t know about other branches of the forces, but on a warship, food is morale. It’s a constant, a routine, something that breaks up the day, like you said, it doesn’t matter what when where and how, you did when many wouldn’t, and that’s all that matters.

    Shin-ei Fy-2

    Also if anyone has one of these can I get a photo of the wiring please? I’ve got this one working (sort of) but the switch only allows the fuzz to work, doesn’t cut back to a clean sound when turned off. Digging the sound though.

    Shin-ei Fy-2

    That’s cool, thanks! I have been doing a bit of digging after work and it seems as though it’s from a January in the mid 70’s. There are a few wires that need resoldering but nothing major. Hopefully have it up and running tonight. Is there a following for these old pedals as I’ve never really...

    Shin-ei Fy-2

    It’s pretty well built and in great condition considering the potential age. As far as the story goes it’s probably been sat in the bottom of a box for the last 22 years

    Thanks, so when you say clone of, is it not actually a Shin-Ei companion Fy-2 Fuzz Box?

    Shin-ei Fy-2

    Good afternoon team, This is my first foray into this sub forum but it seemed like the best place to start. Ditching a load of stuff for my boss at work today and came across this fuzz pedal with some family photos I salvaged for him, I asked and he said I could I have it to save it from the...

    2003 Les Paul Standard Plus

    I agree strangely enough, normally I shy away from them unless it’s a plain top. It’s never been fitted on this one so I think I’ll leave it be for now to save myself some holes!

    2003 Les Paul Standard Plus

    In many ways it doesn’t, it is a great playing guitar but when I open up the R9 case and get that out there is just something else going on, maybe it’s in my head, maybe it’s not. I have decided to keep the R9, I worked really hard for that and just can’t let it go. Although the standard is a...

    Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul 1959 Reissue VOS Sunrise Tea Burst

    Yeah, I think eBay is ok. I ask for photos, I ask questions, if I’m still not sure I don’t buy and gracefully decline and thank the seller for their help. If I buy and I am happy all is good. If I receive and do not like and there is no return policy that’s on me as long as everything is as...

    2003 Les Paul Standard Plus

    Morning, and thanks, it’s a little more amber in the right light. Not too sure about the one piece backs, from what I have found in here, after the pancake bodies they were more often than not one piece, that seemed to change around mid 2000’s. Many members here seem to think that the early...
