    Concerning Earthquake In Alaska and Cascadia Range

    Some say 7.5 magnitude, some 7.8, magma infiltration origin. Seems like the Cascadia Subduction Zone is hot, surprising the experts such that they've never seen before. Keep an eye on this, especially if you live in Washington State, Oregon or Northern California. Also, an incoming asteroid...

    Anyone own or has owned or played a 1949-1955 ES-175?

    Looking for info on neck shape and thickness ... measured thickness. Thinking about getting one (as long as my bursitis doesn't bug me too bad) and I'm all about a single P90 in the neck. But the most important element of that guitar is the neck. Please chime in.

    Rush: 2112 & Moving Pictures (Classic Album Review) on Amazon

    Watched it last night. TONS of interview material with Neil, Ged and Alex and ancillary personnel. Of course the music was otherworldly, but what I was struck with was how intelligent, articulate, well read these guys were, especially Neil Peart ... loved listening to him relate his thought...

    1955 Custom BB Reissues

    I've been seeing these on ebay, sellers are in Japan and these are brand new guitars, and I don't see them on Gibson's Custom Shop collection online. I like the '55s because they have the V-shaped neck. Are these special orders or a standard CS offering. Also, any of you guys bought a guitar...

    Busking amp choice

    Recommendations? I want battery powered, of course, but I'd be playing for no more than a couple of hours. Must have midrange control in addition to bass and treble Able to run my guitar and vocal mic through separate channels with separate volume and EQ.

    Pressing ferrules back in

    One of the ferrules on my R6 is lifting from the headstock. What's the safest way to press it back in? I'm thinking a socket, but what say ye?

    Radon test

    Do you guys know of a real-time radon test? Everything I've seen requires the sample to be sent in for analysis. I'd rather have something that gives me a reading right away, and if I can avoid a radon meter (~ $100) that would be preferable, but I'm sure I can scrape a C note together if I...

    Good God y'all. With temperature over 100 degrees and dry conditions, this was not well thought out. There is no end to the madness.

    For you Titanic lovers

    Minute-by-minute sinking of the Titanic from the time she hit the iceberg until she goes down, complete with the groanings of the ship. The last 10 minutes are pretty gripping.

    Neck reshape to thicker, can it be done?

    So, could it go something like the back of the neck is planed flat, then a piece of properly-acclimated mahogany is glued on, set, then reshaped ... all without the neck being removed? I know it wouldn't be cheap, but is it doable? And it's in the name of keeping the guitar original as opposed...

    Ebony board on a LP Special RI?

    Looking at an ad for a used Special, owner claims it has an ebony board. Case doesn't say Custom Shop and no CS paperwork or COA. Ebony or Richlite ... or just a dark piece of rosewood?
