    Evaluating used condition on factory-distressed instruments.

    I mean, I think the old beat up guitars are as cool as everyone else do, but I'm one of those people that I'd rather buy some random old beat up Gibson, because that's a good enough guitar somebody played it enough to make it look like that I mean I just bought an old Gibby where apparently the...

    No, he's autistic. The message is more like, what kinda instrument do want to make? "SPIDERMAN!!!" The board is from Ikea, everything else is American. It's kinda like a Deluxe to Standard conversion. I have some 75th Anniversary Coke bottles I thought about using for a more vintage tone, but...

    Ya, I was originally going to use a beer bottle :beer:, but apparently, that's not ok for a school project.

    Kids these days....

    Everything gotta be so fancy, I guess to get the Instagram likes. My son had to make an instrument for a school project, so we made a Diddley bow. Couldn't just be a normal Diddley bow, nope, gotta be the custom, hand made, hand engraved Spiderman edition. :jam:

    Opinions on the top on my fav Les Paul

    Because guitars would be boring if they were all perfect.

    Raw/unfinished vs polished nickel covers?

    This just had regular nickel covers. The neck's still kinda normal looking, the bridge, not so much.

    Unusual problem with neck breaks.

    It doesn't even have to be touring pros. When I was playing live, I swapped to straplocks because constantly taking my strap on and off was making my strap buttons loose, and I didn't know the Schaller screws were smaller than the Gibson screws. This is what happened after my Les Paul bounced...

    Jazz Fusion Drummer hears (and plays) Enter Sandman for the first time!

    What's worse than that...I've heard a song on the radio, go home and play it for my wife, and nail it like 80%, where a nonmusician can tell what song it was. But I wanna play a goddamned AC/DC song, can't get E A and D in the right order. :wtf: My dad's played in bands most of his life and...

    Tech quoted 45mins of labor to swap pickups. Does that sound right?

    Another thing, every time I do something for someone and they ask how long will this take I over estimate how long it'll take. Say I takes me 30 minutes to change a set of pickups, I tell you it'll take 45 minutes. Then when I hit a snag and it takes me 40 minutes, I'm still done faster than...

    NGD: Well, I guess that makes it a keeper.

    I'd been thinking about getting something old and weird, and this still ticks the box since it's an actual Epi instead of a budget Gibson. I was messing with it, and if I wiggle the neck volume it'll cut in and out. I'm really thinking about modding it like the one in the video I posted, it's...

    NGD: Well, I guess that makes it a keeper.

    I used to have a P94 in my Les Paul, and I've had the P90 itch since then. A Junior is a bit more than I can afford to spend nowadays, and like I said I haven't cared for any of the Epi versions of Gibsons I've had, but I'm impressed enough with the actual Epiphone's I've had I could totally get...

    NGD: Well, I guess that makes it a keeper.

    I've tried to like SGs, but they just aren't my thing, and this is a bigger than one. I don't know if Gibson built them, but this is from a limited run in 2009, and it's made in China. I know Gibson made a run of USA Casinos. But I have to say, I've had a couple Epi versions of Gibsons and I...

    jokes & funnies.

    I mean, I saw a sign in the store that I started to get offended by. It said crackers love cheese, and I started to feel triggered, but then I remembered I was at the store because I ate all our cheese and had to get some more for dinner.

    NGD: Well, I guess that makes it a keeper.

    So, I'm a big fan of Frank Iero, and I've been trying to find one of his sig Wilshires, but every time I find one I can't afford it, and when I can afford it I can't find one. So I finally gave up and just bought a regular one, but I'm still thinking about modding this one to be like the one he...

    What would your wife do with your Les Paul(s) if you died?

    As far as all my guitars go, she knows what they are worth, and that one of them I made a deal with the dude I bought it from if I ever sell it that he has the first bid on it, but as far as my Les Paul, honestly I kinda want her to give it away. I've posted on here about how much that guitar...
