    My Offset Semi-hollow Fix

    I've had a "thing" for offset semi-hollows ever since I thought it possible, and then I saw Josh Homme playing a Maton BB1200 in a video that just about put me over the edge. Of course, one of those is a bit out of my league, sadly, so when the opportunity came via a tragic passing of the owner...

    Three Piece Neck Question-

    Starting my first build as a Double Cut Junior and, it being my first build don't want to get too far into debt in the purchase of wood. I have a couple Hog blanks for bodies but all I have for neck structure is some Sapele 7/8" or so thickness. It's beautiful wood. I've seen various three-piece...

    2017 Casino Coupe NewMonthsOldGuitarDay...or something.

    I was prodded along under great duress to post some pics of my new (-ish) used Casino Coupe that I absolutely adore by one of our fellow members here who shall remain nameless- (@moonlightermusic <-not the guy. He would never do that.), because he just got his first semihollow guitar. An Epi 335...

    Opinions on a refret error-

    My first refret, and as I was filing the ends I noticed something- I didn't even know I'd bought two different sized fret wire (eons ago). First seven frets are bigger (actually just wider) frets. I wondered why the old fret impressions/ghosts weren't being covered by the new frets on up the...

    NYD!

    So, a buddy of mine (and hometown "Guitar God") sez to me he's going to unload a guitar at the GuitarFest guitar show a few weeks ago here locally, a show we were both going to. I ask him "which one..." "Oh, just the Yamaha SA 2200" "Really?...How much?" Georgie proceeds to tell me the stupid...

    Anyone wanna report a fake?

    Not sure how to go about it myself- Blatant spin on this one too. A "Made in USA Epiphone!" https://www.ebay.com/itm/Left-handed-Les-Paul-Electric-Guitar-very-nice-professional-upgrades-/223499573481?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c10#viTabs_0

    NGD Reverend Sensei Junior

    Okay, it's been well over a week, maybe even two weeks, but I guess one could say I'm past the "Honeymoon" phase, although I gotta say that is about all this guitar IS. It's a freakin' honeymoon every time I pick it up! This. Guitar. Is. Amazing. -I'm beside myself thrilled. They're not...

    Well, it's about time...ES335 Dot P-90

    Not a three-three-ought full hollow. An actual Semi-hollow with P-90's. What took them so long? This is like my dream guitar of dream guitars! Not that i'd ever be able to afford one, but geez...

    I'm Looking at an Ibanez AM93 with Custom 58 pickups, and...

    ...on the neck pup, the low (bass) E seems to be almost non-existent. Is this at all possible in a humbucker? To lose signal at just one of the slug/screw positions? I went to the trouble of asking for a screwdriver to raise it (the pickup, not the pole screw), as it was a bit low on the body...

    "Other Single-Cuts" Newbie Needs Edumicated re: Burny

    Okay, call me weird, call me whatever you like, but I WANT this guitar- It's a Burny PLC-45 PP Les Paul and it's going for cheap on eBay. I know little to nothing about Burnys, and their line codes and what they mean, I'm assuming this is a lower-shelf line (PLC-45) and it's probably got an...

    Will Modding My Historic Harm Its Value?

    I'd like to put a treble bleed on my '95 R7 Custom, and maybe even change caps. Is that gonna cheapen or have an effect on it's resale value, or do I need to keep it pristine? I think it's a keeper, but I won't know for certain until I can try different modifications, if ya know what I mean...

    Adrian Belew gets his first Les Paul-

    NuGD '95 Gibson Les Paul Custom Historic '57 Reissue Mahogany

    The title pretty much says it all and it's also pretty much a dream come true, for me. I never before even humored the idea of owning a Custom, let alone a mahogany topped one, but the opportunity fell in my lap, and I pounced. Too excited to wait for the weather to break so you'll have to deal...

    NUGD- 2010 50's Tribute- Why didn't anybody tell me...

    ...that these were so COOL? Chambered body and light as a feather. Great tone, the weight-relief doesn't take anything away from that at all, and the electronics are brilliant! No treble/tone dive when you roll off the volume. Gonna copy THAT schematic. Oddly, one of the reasons I bought it was...

    2014 Melody Maker P-90 Conversion

    I was warned... I read somewhere here that there wasn't room for a P-90 in a 2014 Melody Maker pup cavity, but I had to try. I just had to. The P90"S" pup in the bridge was seriously delicious and chimey and bell-like, but I couldn't bear the brightness for another minute, and with many...

    NGD! Larrivee RS-2 Solidbody P-90

    I've had her for about a week now. Finally got to fine tune it to the best of my abilities and this guitar KILLS. There's a bit of a story to it, but that's for another day. Ultimately, this was supposed to be a (used) Reverend Manta Ray w/P-90's, but when that arrived (from GC, in "good...

    So This Happened...

    [/URL][/IMG] Went to look at a Junior, at a good price ('07), and the guy had also a 2014 Melody Maker, which I have been wanting for awhile but priorities dictated a Junior first. I took my 2008 MM for trade fodder to see what we could deal as he only deals in American makes. Well, the 2014 MM...

    Can We Talk Pots?

    I'm frustrated with the "juiced jump" at the peak of the volume knob that can bring frightening highs into the output, or the opposite effect (as with my Epi Wilshire) where it sounds KILLER between 8.5 and 10, but goes to dull-assed crap anywhere below that. I'm actually more frustrated with...

    I Knew I Shouldn't Have...

    ...but the temptation was too much. There on the used rack was an oddball with a $229 price tag... ...and a BatWing headstock. In white. The "SUCKER" that was beaming from my forehead musta glowed a charming chartreuse pink. I picked it up and played it and that was all it took...

    Such Confusion...Re: Magnets

    In trying to keep things simple, I just want to cut the shrill highs and bring out the mids in a (for example) GFS Dream 90 bridge. So I want an Alnico 2. Okay. What length? Do I have to pull one and measure it? Polished? Uh, I dunno. I suppose. What would rough do? Magnetized...
