    If I wasn’t married I’d go broke

    There’s a guitar listed in the classifieds that’s absolutely calling to me. If I wasn’t married (less than a year and with a baby boy on the way in August, our first) it would be mine! After 8 years with me she knew what she was getting into and has been super understanding of my hobbies, but I...

    Chris Cornell Tribute Concert - 1/16/19 @ The LA forum

    Just stumbled upon this... I have to go! Cheapest ticket I found is $176 but proceeds go to good foundations so I’m on board with paying that price. I was scrolling through Instagram and saw that Gibson is reissuing the Chris Cornell es335 in honor of this concert (and to make some money of...

    Thoughts on ‘59 American Vintage series Strats?

    Someone local to me has it for sale. I’ve had my eye out for a nice Strat. It’s a used 2014 in “Aztec Gold” in mint condition. Anyone have anything good, bad or otherwise to say about these Strats? Are they custom shop?

    Xotic XW-1 Wah Pedal

    Bought from Guitar Center last year. It’s got a few little scratches here and there but I just play at home and don't gig so it's in great cosmetic shape and perfect functioning condition. Great, versatile wah, I just don't use it all that much so i'd rather have something else i'll use more...

    Fender PRRI - finally found my jazz tone!

    Well at least for now. My never-ending quest for the perfect tone I hear in my head was rewarded this morning. Been using my PRRI with my R9 for a while now and I’ve found plenty of tone settings for rock and blues stuff. But since I’ve owned a ES-175D for the last week I’ve had trouble dialing...

    Need advice on maintaining my ES-175 properly

    Just got my first es175. It’s a 2012 VOS ‘59 reissue. I’ve learned how to setup and maintain my LP and I’m hoping to do the same here. I’m happy to report that overall it left the shop with a damn good setup. I love the action and the intonation is spot on. It’s god a dead straight neck with...

    Ever promise yourself you were gonna sell a guitar...

    But then kept it? Just bought a es175 yesterday. I was telling myself for months during my search that if I sprung for an expensive guitar I would sell my PRS Custom 24 10-top. I love the PRS but I’m not playing it that much (my R9 gets 90% or more of my time) and it’s more of an...

    NGD! ES-175 VOS '59 Reissue (Natural finish)

    Wasn't sure if this should go here or in the historics/reissues section. But here it goes... My first jazz box! I've been on the lookout for a few months for a jazz guitar. I have an R9 and a PRS Custom 24 and while either of them can get a passable jazz tone if played well, they just didn't...

    Off Craigslist locally here in Los Angeles. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/msg/d/gibson-es-165-herb-ellis/6747458006.html The seller emailed me and said: “There are 2 small nicks in the finish. No repairs have been done. The handle on the case broke off. This is why I have it listed as...

    Why are you making that face? Said my wife.

    My wife came in and started talking to me as I was noodling this morning. I stood up from my chair to carry on the conversation with her and continued casually picking away. After a few seconds she stops and says “why are you making that face... your pouting your lips... I’ve never seen you do...

    Is this 335 a reissue?

    Tempted by this guitar but I can’t figure out what it is. Has a factory Bigsby and is VOS with very light aging on the hardware and binding. The Pelham blue is sick! Wasn’t looking for a Bigsby but I’m digging the vibe on this thing. Any help identifying it is appreciated!

    So hard to let go...

    No one has passed away. I have someone coming over today who wants to buy my PRS, which I was certain I was ready to let go in order to make another purchase I really want ... but I’ve been playing it all morning and now I’m not so sure I can part with it! I may need to pull it from the...

    Look ma, no wires! Blackstar Fly3 amp and Xvive U2 transmitters...

    Just picked up a Blackstar Fly3 mini amp (3 watts) and a Xvive U2 bluetooth guitar transmitter/receiver for goofing around at home and vacation. For quick and easy noodling around the house i'm really liking this setup so far. Since the Fly3 amp has bluetooth I can play YouTube backing tracks...

    FS: 2017 PRS Custom 24 10-Top... a beauty!

    Well I’ve been bit by the GAS bug again. Love this guitar and genuinely don’t wanna sell it but something’s gotta go. I purchased it from Norman’s Rare guitars here in Los Angeles about 6 months ago. I got a decent price on it so I wanna pass the savings on to an MLP brother. Hoping to move...

    ThorpyFX Pedal - "The Dane" Overdrive Booster - (autographed version)

    Dual pedal, has a clean boost side and an overdrive side. Works great individually and stacked. Sounds great with humbuckers, but it appears to really shine with single coils. Mint condition and comes with the box etc it came with. I've owned it for 1 month and purchased it from Riff City...
