    The "one-star" wimp..

    No. Some people need to be merged. Too many people posting stream of consciousness bullshirt. It's funny, to an extent. And then it gets old. I mean, for every FF thread that us remotely interesting there are 5 "hey did you see the size of that chicken?" threads. I know some of our...

    Non-political healthcare comments

    Sorry but covering self inflicted maladies is a pet peeve. "It's a disease" my ass.

    This is low.

    And get the education and opportunity they deserve....... Until some of these folks grasp the concept of personal accountability and figure out that what they've glorified for 30+ years is completely wrong, I'm fine with the police taking care of the problem. This behavior is always someone...

    Historic & Reissues: Is there a best year?

    I guess there are great examples of all eras and it depends on what you hold dear, spec wise. For some, the BRW and sharp inlays of brazzy 03's are the shizzle. Others swear by the recent 13 and on specs of both standard and true historics. I think 07 had, collectively, some inspired timber...

    Mariah Carey - New Year's Rockin' Eve

    For better or worse, when is the last time a "NYE's Rockin' Eve" Thread of any sort went 7+ pages here? Mission accomplished.......:hmm::cool::laugh2:

    The 2011 LP Traditional (Standard?) Faded Mega-Thread

    Hard to tell. If you sort through this thread, you'll see that many of the 2005-09 guitars have appreciated. The new ones are nice too, but they are still out there at reasonable prices. Some folks are trying to gouge for both the older and new ones. The new ones are slightly different in terms...

    Here They Are!.. The Beatles! yeah..flipp'n yeah..yeah

    Rain did a bang up job for that late 70's bio pic "Birth of the Beatles" IMO. It's been much maligned (even at sub-double digits I knew all the Rickenbackers/Gretsches/guitars were wrong!) but I remember watching it when I was a wee lad and I wanted to be in the Beatles so bad. The...

    Satin vs gloss differences?

    Try the Satin finished guitar. Gibson gloss isn't great, even the CS, but I would try them both. (and more than one of each if you can). Satin/Faded will wear faster and if you are really tough on your guitars you may wanna pass. But if you are like me, the sound will win you over. The dings on...

    The 2011 LP Traditional (Standard?) Faded Mega-Thread

    It's been discontinued. See the posts above about the years. The Satin Traditional from 2016 is the closest thing you'll find new (besides the occasional NOS that still pops up)and I dunno if that trad satin is on the 2017 roster.

    Hoochie Coochie Man? or Back Door Man?

    (Insert your own coarse lockeroom banter :hmm::hmm::laugh2: ....) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_ONyukSLqA I reckon if you can type out of it, you can see out of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aae_RHRptRg

    Street Outlaws Part 2....

    The comments about the pro mods are right on. The old school metal, hoop-dee factor loomed large in the show's allure, appealing directly to my inner Duke boy.....

    Can someone fill me in on ascap

    A few years ago, we had a bass player who was involved in an accident before a gig and didn't show up. It was "our" Christmas party and good crowd had shown up. Well, with no bass, things were like guitar solos were out the window so we played a shambling set of fragmentary, at best, covers...

    Rickenbacker Question…

    The neck width is thin, the board lacquered and seems to have a bit of a radius or curve. It is slight and you may pick it up and say "What were these guys talking about?" But that FB lacquer seems thicker and slicker than that of a maple necked fender. The 660 has a more wide/flat neck and...

    8-2153 Korina Explorer

    My guess is that it was a very early one. There were only like 40(?) total so they were like prototypes anyway. The "G" and not full "Gibson" may point to some embarrassment by the historic Gibson company of the 1950's. It is believed that the company was not sure they wanted their name on...

    twitter feed on TV

    As I type this on an internet forum, the irony is murderous...... but reality TV (first) and (later) social media have given Joe and Sally Sixpack an inflated idea of their general importance in the panorama of life. But the real trophy is a reality show. Everyone gets a reality show...

    Anybody have a Faded/Satin SG Standard?

    Right on. I figured it was something different. I didn't mind the baked/torrified maple on my ex-MM Explorer. I take it the grenadillo is hard like baked maple?

    Additional PU windings for a weak single coil?

    And that's a relatively docile exchange.....:laugh2: I'm an old hand w/Ricks. I had 3 high output toasters from the 90's that's how I knew they wouldn't work without routing (which ain't happenin'). and it is the very thread that chasenblues referenced that spawned this thought/thread. The...

    Anybody have a Faded/Satin SG Standard?

    I'm a huge Faded Standard Les Paul fan and I stumbled across a Satin/Faded SG made in 2012. Anybody out there have one? I know about the possibility of a two piece fingerboard(or maple) and I also know that faded finish isn't exactly durable.... but my 2007 Faded LP is an outstanding guitar and...
