I'm jealous of all you guys who have late '13 or 2014 Historic LP's. You guys got the extra blank switch cover as part of your case candy. My early '13 R8 VOS didn't come with one.
I want to replace my Gibson Custom medallion with a blank one.
If any of you feel like parting...
As it was Clapton's birthday yesterday I thought I'd share this pretty cool video of a 23 y.o. Slowhand explaining some of his techniques.
I love the lit cigarette stuck in the headstock. :)

I was infantry (11B) when I was in the army. You could never get me in one of these death boxes. The knocked-out T-72 @ the 41:00 mark is my case in point. :wow: :shock:
Beautiful & touching (and a little crazy).

But I won't ever be attempting what this guy did. Needless to say if I saw a fully grown male lion galloping toward me I'd...
The new retractable roof system is absolutely amazing! I remember the old Targas from the '70's & 80's that had a hard, fixed roop piece that you had to manually remove and store either in your garage or in the trunk. This is such a vast improvement.
The 911 Targa is back. -...
He just came in to the wine shop I manage in Midtown West. Cool dude. Very nice.
Of course I had to mention I was a fan of his as well as a fellow Les Paul lover. I mentioned to him I was a hobby player and bought a R8 this year that I love. He said R8's & R9's were great guitars and he asked...

Interesting opinion piece about relic'd guitars. Personally I'm not a fan of heavy artificial relicing. The VOS treatment on my '13 R8 is about as far as I'd like to go.
Had her for a couple of weeks now but it's time for a proper NGD.
2103 R8 in Sunrise Tea Burst. 9 lb's of endless sustain and gorgeous vintage tone. She really looks like a 50 year old instrument in person. Nice DARK fingerboard as well.
Bought here from MLP member buckwild who I can't...
It's with a heavy heart and an fierce case of G.A.S. for a 2013 Historic that I announce that I'm offering my 2002 Epiphone Elite Custom for sale.
These really need no introduction. Phenomenal quality, fit & finish.
I do not think you will find a more pristine example for sale anywhere. It's...
Black is white. Up is down.
Or more accurately...Treble is now Rhythm.
My Traditional's switch tip was a little loose so I went ahead and tightened it. That resulted in the entire assembly spinning around. Apparently the washer was loose. So I moved the tip back into position and tightened...
