    New pedal week:TC Electronic Quintessence

    This one came in just in time for our Easter holiday: It's a pedal that is putting to the test all my (very poor) music theory background: I do know my minor pentatonic scales so choosing my key is not an issue. Beyond that, I stick to (Do)rian mode and everything sounds fine (as far as...

    Clapton in 1965, played live in Athens. Here are a couple of pics!

    Clapton in 1965, played live in Athens as temp for a local band, called "Juniors". Clapton was actually on his travel around the world and in the summer of '65 ended up in Athens, Greece. The urban legend has it that he was actually was looking for a job in the small athenian clubs & bars. He...

    I know, it's not a traditionalist's dream, but...

    ...but not only I find it to be drop-dead gorgeous, but also the combination of Custom appointments with Axcess features make it a Les Paul I would love to try. If it only came at a reasonable price, though... :(...

    New guitar days: EVH Striped Yellow

    Hey all, just a thread to celebrate my new and totally '80s-inspired superstrat: I recently sold my only Strat, which I practically used an introduction to the world of Strats, trying to find out the things that worked for me and those that didn't. The light and full of curves body was...

    Do you really believe in forgiveness...? I don't.

    Strange subject, I know, but what can I do? I do not believe in forgiveness. I don't buy the whole concept of it all. Not for me, not for anyone else. Let's start by saying that we all make mistakes. And I only call them "mistakes" for the times we aknowledge them as same. Otherwise, they are...

    Mini Cooper S - An ode to the lost pleasure of driving...

    Hey everybody, for the present week and maybe a few days in the next one, I have been given a 10-year old (approx.) Mini Cooper S Convertible, as a replacement car. Mine has been sitting at the body-repair shop waiting for a replacement rear bumper. This is a stock photo of the little Mini...

    Help needed: is this too good to be true...?

    Hey guys, I need your assistance for an add that certainly seems too good to be true. And I am aware that when this is the case, 90% of the times there is a catch and things end up not being what they seem. Please check the add on the below link and tell me what I am looking at here...

    Are any MLP members participating in / attending "Cyprus Rocks Festival" in October?

    Hi all, I thought I should ask because the classic rock line-up (tribute bands from the UK) imply that a lot of Les Paul love will be in the air and perhaps there are some MLP members in the bands that participate or perhaps in the audience. If you're visiting our little sunny island in...

    Vox Night Train 15 watt combo - After almost 2 years of ownership...

    I don't post in or frequent at the Amps sub-forum much, since amps for me, due to my playing conditions, are "find one or two you like and you can work with, adjust the corner of your living room accordingly and enjoy them to the max". I just wanted to post a small follow-up review on an amp...

    Is there a concensus on the locking hardware of the HP models?

    Hi there, so, what's the opinion of those that tried the new locking bridge & tailpiece of the HP models? Did, by any chance, anyone tried to swap them out for any of the traditional options? How do they function and (without opening a can of worms) how do they "sound" or, to put it more...

    PRS David Grissom PAFs

    Hey all, Has any of you had the chance to play the PAF-style pickups that are on the PRS DGT? Has any had the pleasure to own one and compare it with some of the PAF-style pickups we think of so highly in this forum? I have been very seriously impressed by any and all demos I have found...

    Which neck profile for me...?

    Not sure if I should post this in the Historics on the USA Les Pauls forum, but I think the crowd in here would be more knowledgeable to put me in the right direction. I own and absolutely love to bits a LP Studio 2009 model with rounded '50s neck profile. It fits perfectly fine my hand and...

    Neunaber Immerse - Just my review

    Since a lot more folks seem to be interested in the offerings from Neunaber, especially their reverbs, I suspect there will also be an interest on their all-in-one reverb pedal that was released earlier this year, the Immerse. I own the pedal for almost a month now and hadn't shared...

    Which are the things you do / not, out of principle?

    I was thinking this and I figured that others in here must have their own things that they do / do not, out of principle. For example, I do not gamble or take part in loteries, etc. out of principle. I don't smoke, or do drugs, out of principle. I don't steal money or things and I do not...

    Which Strat as a moding platform?

    Hey all, As the title says, which Strat would you buy as modding platform? Which one, if you knew, no matter what kind of pickups, electronics, bridge it came with, you will end up modding it down the road? Let's keep the following into mind: From a budget perspective, let's say...

    Hey everyone, I have this little beauty: which, at the moment is has the following: 1) Curtis Novak PAF at the neck 2) Nick Silver Pickups Django (Broadcaster) at the bridge 3) 500k controls all around. I use a Vox Nightrain 12watt combo and a Blackstar HT-1R, only at...

    Proco Rat - Am I really missing that much?

    This is one of the threads one begins on hot, summer days. So take it for what it is... So... I have a Sovereing on my board (absolutely killer distortion pedal, very shape-able) and I have also owned a Jam Pedals Rattler in the past, which is a Rat-clone. I really liked it, didn't love it...

    Recommendations for a Tele bridge pickup

    Ok folks, let's discuss this (again). The twist is that on the neck position of my Tele (with LP-style controls) I will put a Curtis Novak PAF that I already own. Playing style for this guitar will be blues / rock and some ambient experimentations that I have been up to, lately, so ODs...
