    I was at a Guns N Roses show last night

    I had an amazing time. Axl’s vox was shit for the first hour, but he was hitting the high notes towards the end. They came out for an extended encore, and belted our their greatest hits. The crowd simply went berserk. 3-hour set with zero rest. Full props and respect to the band for playing...

    Offset tele aka telemaster

    I am very, very happy with my Les Paul. The tone is as fat as I want it to be, and puts a smile on my face whenever I plug it in. But why do I still want a blackface telemaster? I'm losing sleep over it. It's not even pretty, for pete's sake. I don't get it. Am I going nuts? I don't I am...

    Rant: R9's are too flamey

    I don't think monster tops on R9s are vintage correct. I believe R8s with figured tops have the right amount of flames. With saying that, R8s should strictly have plain tops.

    Things I learn: I've gained weight... gotta cut down on the baked beans Les Pauls are actually tiny and look better faded Jimmy Page/Slash must have been really skinny Carry on.

    I think they are. But please post photos of cars with wheels bigger than 17" that would change my mind.

    Are you happy with True Historic pricing strategy?

    I am. The insane prices makes me regret even less about buying a used 2013 reissue. Gives me the psychological reinforcement that "there will never be a better time to buy a replica burst." The way I look at it, it's just going to get more expensive putting of anyone's dream of owning a...

    Would you donate your body to science?

    Funerals are getting expensive. Would you subject your cadaver to feeding medical minds, or maggots?

    My experience buying an R9 unseen and unplayed

    A little preface: I have been accused of being a lustful person, expending my resources on beautiful women with incompatible personalities. Or little fast cars that end up being dusty garage queens. This 2013 R9 VOS in washed cherry burst is no different. I haven't played an electric guitars...

    hello again from Borneo

    Hey guys, It has been a while since i logged in on MLP, but i thought I'd reintroduce myself. Took me a while to work up the courage to finally purchase a 2013 R9 from Japan in mint condition. Wide flames in washed cherry VOS. I haven't properly played an electric guitar since I...

    'modern' vs 'vintage' maple tops?

    Hi everyone, first of all... thanks to Ex-Nihilo for his very inspiring thread on his second build. Fantastic, fantastic. Extremely informative, and perhaps giving diletantte like myself a false sense of confidence that I can probably do the same ;) Anyway, I've spent a good 30 minutes...

    Gidday from New Zealand

    hey everyone, I stumbled upon this forum after Harmony-Central went down for a good part of last week. There was a thread about where forumites were hanging out while the admin was fixing the haxxorz problem, and one guy directed to the thread about Ex-Nihilos second build. I was...
