    Feeling bored in the coronavirus world

    If it's a custom shop guitar then I'd like a 54 wraparound p90 goldtop lowered logo etc I'd pick a CC12 neck profile and it would be very very heavily aged. Drool.

    Almost sold my R7 but persistence paid off.

    Glad you took care of your dog. Yeah I really rate custombuckers I think they're great pups. Prefer them to BBs the custombuckers I've experienced seem quite organic with good clarity and I feel they bring out the tone of the wood in the guitar. Pickup height is very important and not to be...

    NGD: Finally got a Goldtop after all these years! R4 1954 Reissue

    Wonderful. I'd love a stoptail goldtop. Can't help but think of the late great Freddie King and blind owl Wilson. A battered goldtop with wraptail and nasty P90 with a chunky neck would have me drooling. Can you please give some details? Tone report? Neck and pups? Congrats and enjoy

    Break in period...achievement unlocked!

    I just can't see how that can be. I'm sorry if I'm thick and I don't wish to appear rude but I'm not sure I even understand it,it sounds really far out man. Are you saying that the playing of one guitar in a room affects all the other guitars in the room for the better just thru sound waves...

    60th Anniversary - What is missing from a real '59

    Regarding old wood I dunno how old the actual mahogany was that Gibson used in 58-60 but when Clapton beck page green kossoff Bloomfield etc made those great sounding recordings they were using 6-10yr old guitars. The same age that a 2009-2013 reissue is today. They weren't using old guitars
