    Our song won 2019 Instrumental of the year Josie Music Award!!

    Been a while since I have posted anything. But long story short yesterday at the 2019 Josie Music Awards our song won Instrumental of the year! I believe it is the best thing that has ever happened to me musically. Anyways, the song was submitted by Hyram Posey who is a most talented violinist...

    Many .009 gauge LP players out there?

    Love the 9 gauge strings. It is all I have ever used period. For the most part I think ernie Ball super slinkys sound the best to my ears on my les paul. However the OP mentioned dunlop strings. They are very good but do not last very long. They do some kind of pre stretching during the...

    Anyone use a Boss GT-001 for recording??

    Hey guys been doing a little rehashing of my DAW recording set up. I find that I like to record in the evening and with that being said, I have pretty much ditched my set up of live mic'ed amps and such for the Boss GT-001. It works great and I love it. I know how to do the editing and all and I...

    Here you go man. It is a 2008 candy apple red Les Paul Custom. It has a regular CS serial number. Some of you have probably saw it on other threads. It has a long neck tenon, Ebony fretboard, abr-1 bridge with post into the wood, bb1 and 2 pick ups, mirrored knobs and Gibson deluxe tuners. It is...

    I hear you but they just got it in is Sat. You may luck out and get it down. But yeah man....they had way too many new guitars with "special touches" from the customers already hanging new on the racks there.

    Dude that would make me piss all over myself and cry too. Yeah man the one good thing about a relic job is if you ding it or scratch it it is all good. I have an SG that has been around the block. If someone scratches it and handed it back to me I would never know they did it. However I have one...

    Look man....maybe I jumped to comment too soon and I am not trying to offend anyone. But my OP was not saying anything against relic guitars. It was how this one I held in my hands looked like a scratch and dent guitar and not that I think relic guitars suck. So with that said......I am not...

    No checking pings or anything like that. Like I said if you replaced the hardware with chrome it would look like a scratch and dent special. It did not look natural at all.

    Yes it looks nice enough. But your comment about old and tired is bull$shit. My pissy rant was not about your guitar. Yeah I will take and buy a nice shiney one any day over fake wear. If your too damn lazy to play your own guitar to have honest wear and pay extra for it then good for you. Now...

    This looks great and natural. Nothing like the one I saw.

    The best way I would describe it is like this. Have you ever been to a car show and saw some old hot rod from about 10 feet away that looked pristine but when you walked up to it you could see where someone had painted over some bondo and there was paint lifting in places like it was a rushed...

    From what I have saw on the Murphy aging, some do look nice. And yes, I agree, if your into it. I am fine with that. My observation was that this one I saw did not look like an authentic aged guitar. I have been around plenty of beat up horses through the years with honest wear. It just seemed...

    I did not say I had compared it to an orignal 58. I said it did not look natural. Now mind you I have played some original vintage les pauls. I have a friend that has an original 56 and I have played a 1960 as well. So does that count??

    The neck was full and fat and the weight of it kind of surprised me. It did not seem to weigh that much either. It felt like my custom which comes in at 9 lbs on the dot. Set ups can be changed for preferences. That is why I did not go into that. It would have been way better if the strings...

    Now this is an observation from me personally playing an R8 Gibson Les Paul Aged Custom Shop guitar. I have never been around very many "R" reissue Les Paul guitars. I have played two "R" reissue Les Paul guitars in the past. Yesterday I went to Guitar Center in Cool Springs TN. When I walked...
