    Tokai Strat question

    Appealing to the knowledgeable here.. a friend has just brought his 1986 Tokai Golden Sound ST60 down from the loft that he bought new when he started playing guitar, in a very misspent youth he painted it and changed out the bridge block for a fender part that is not the correct size. The...

    Bluesy Marshall

    Most of the guitarists I liked in the late 60's and 70's played though Marshal Amps, I live in Malaysia, where its not possible (and prohibitively expensive) to get hold of vintage second hand amps. You can buy most of the major brands here, such as Fender, VOX, Laney, Marshall... Is there a...

    2009 Gibson GT DC

    Hi there, I'm looking at a 2009 GT DC, this has full binding on the top and fret board, I was wondering if anyone here can tell me what LP model this is based on? As I understand the DC's are chambered and cheaper that the Standard I assume they are based on "Classic" or "Deluxe" model LP's...

    Rewiring a LP TV Model

    I have an old (1973) Burny LP TV Model, very simple single pup little thing, it spent some years being unloved before I got it about 4 years ago. I wanted to keep it original, so did a cosmetic clean up, but left all the dings and scratches.. mojo right. The sound is very, very good, but the...

    Do you sometime not have the time for a good crap?

    Since spending a few months without work early last year and then starting for a new company in the middle of last year, I have come to know the true meaning of "not having the time for....well just about anything". I get home late on friday evening, sometimes early saturday mornings, and...

    NGD Navigator N-LP 280 Std.

    This Guitar I first saw a while back during my first encounter with fellow members of this esteemed forum. I was sat in a condo with Wulfman and Brazen Picker, I could have been dead and inside a room of MIJ heaven... I say only a room because I do know there are others on here with such rooms...

    Just How Good Are They?

    Many on here, like me, have not had the experience of some members in playing a wide range of MIJ's. So this thread is to get opinions on the current in vogue MIJ's, and get the views of the experienced members..(you know who you are...:)) as to their quality of workmanship and sound and to...

    What can we trust in the shape of new MIJ LP's

    With so many trusted names like Edwards, Tokai etc. now diluting their brand with MIC, I thought it might be useful to get input from the great and knowledgeable assembly as to what is currently MIJ. It doesn't matter that these guitars may not be readily available in Europe or the US as so many...

    Turn Table - Record Player

    This is nor guitar related, but is about music. I recently (as part of my general immersion back into music) decided I wanted a record player, to play my old Free and Dire Straights vinyl album on. Here in Malaysia they are very hard to find so I ordered one in the UK from a company call HiFi...

    The Custom Question.

    I prefer natural tops, lemon, honey or tea bursts, so "custom" as in black or white are not my favourite. Not to say they are not great guitars…just a personal taste issue on what it looks like. Over on the vintage section there was a thread about make overs of Vintage versus a make over of...

    $Silly Money MIJ's?

    There is a thread in the vintage section about the possible future peaking and decline in value of the burst. I tend to agree because as aging millionaire wannabe rockers fall by the wayside a new generation will not have the same attachment to the players that made the burst famous, so...

    Ok, I have not been playing to long, so looking for some advice on cables/leads, and really a general question..... Is there a any difference between brands of cable? Will certain leads effect tone, or quality of sound? There seems to be a huge range of prices, what's are the recognised brands...

    Burny LP Junior/TV Model Bridge/Tailpiece Question

    Hi, I'm hoping someone with knowledge on these models can help identify the correct tailpiece for my newly acquired FTV 55. From the picture below you can see that a previous owner put on a tailpiece that has adjusters for the intonation. An issue with this is that the existing tailpiece sits...

    NGD Burny FTV-45

    Picked this little Burny up today, I think it's late 70's but could be earlier, no light here so photos are not good, will post more tomorrow, not played it yet so can't judge the sound. Condition is fair for its age, couple of dings in the finish, but nothing serious, just needs a good clean, a...
