    Any Aging/Relicing Experts Here?

    As you probably know, I’ve done quite a bit of guitar building and painting, but I’ve never aged a guitar. And although I like a nice relic job, it’s something I don’t expect to do much of myself. That said, I recently purchased an aged guitar that doesn’t look quite right to me. The checking...

    Stunning '08 Les Paul Studio Premium Plus…As New

    I am selling off several guitars to help fund another high-end vintage purchase. In the weeks to come I'll be selling Historics, Vintage, maybe a replica or two, and this guitar, the only Gibson USA guitar I’ve ever purchased. I bought it brand new back in ‘08, I believe, because it was (and...

    Deleting Multiple Pics...We Need a Better Way!

    As far as I can tell, in the Photo Gallery, there's no way to delete multiple pics at one time...the same way you can delete multiple PMs at once. I've got dozens of pics I'd like to delete, but it's so cumbersome to do so one at a time, that I just can't find the time to do it. In fact, this...
