    NGD - '78 The Paul

    I have a 1980 LP Firebrand too. It's a winner, really great to play and the T-Tops sound fantastic. Nice score getting your Paul mate.

    A Tale of Two 1967 (I think?) SGs

    Very cool guitars. Definitely a break on the Junior, before the refin I'd say, so who knows what it looks like under the paint? If it plays well & sounds good though that's the main thing.

    Legitimacy of Bursts in the marketplace – Real or Fake?

    ...and somewhere Scott Sheldon is sitting back laughing his head off.

    Legitimacy of Bursts in the marketplace – Real or Fake?

    The thing that's being hinted at but not stated here is that Scott Sheldon is a proven liar and charlatan. Remember his actions and behavior on the forum a few years ago? Conning Steve Hunter, pretending a guitar he had was one thing when he knew damn well it wasn't, all the while trying to buy...

    Your biggest REGRET selling guitars

    Regrets, I have a few...at least that's how the song goes. I've sold some beauties for dumb reasons. I've pawned guitars for peanuts when I was broke to stay alive. Many years ago in a drug haze I sold gear to keep the buzz going, at least for a little while. It's really not worth the bad...

    Australia is the worst

    You don't get too many crocs here in Petersham...there is the occasional redback spider though. Like with most of those sort of things - leave 'em alone & they'll leave you alone. I've swum in the ocean a zillion times, not been eaten by a shark yet by the way. All of you doubters should come...

    is there any proof that Jimmy Page used a T-top on his #1 LP???

    Nigel - do you know when the T-top went in? I know the Australian tour in '72 seems the most likely, but since the man who worked on Jimmy's guitar says that he didn't do it...I still wonder who did & when exactly? My guess is that at 83 years old Merv's memory is playing tricks and he DID in...

    is there any proof that Jimmy Page used a T-top on his #1 LP???

    But we are still no closer to knowing about the TTop. It seems that it DIDN'T get changed during the Oz tour in '72...so how and when...if at all... ...and by the way, my older brother saw Zep here in '72, still talks about it - must have been a hot gig!

    is there any proof that Jimmy Page used a T-top on his #1 LP???

    Well well, look what I found with a 2 minute google search...an interview from last year where the 83 year old Merv talks about rewinding Page's pickup on the spot, nothing about replacing it! It's about half way down the article. The TTop mystery remains - but Merv DIDN'T do it! LINK = The...

    is there any proof that Jimmy Page used a T-top on his #1 LP???

    Red Baron - are you saying that Merv told you that he DIDN'T replace the PAF with a T Top? I have to admit that I never asked Merv exactly what he did to Page's guitar, I'm pretty sure that I just asked him if it was true that he'd worked on Page's guitar. This was over 30 years ago so I...

    is there any proof that Jimmy Page used a T-top on his #1 LP???

    I first heard the story decades ago that Merv Cargill put a T-Top in Pages #1 when Zeppelin toured here in the seventies. Merv was without question the top guy in Australia back then, and having dealt with him over the years he isn't the type of guy that would make that story up. He doesn't need...

    The Dirk Ziff collection.

    It all seems to depend on who the collector is...meaning I've read that Keith Richards has hundreds of guitars in storage that he doesn't use - so many that he doesn't even know himself what he has. Clapton kept his famous ES-335 in storage for decades unplayed. Rick Neilson is another who...

    If you had the chance to tell something to your younger self, what would you say?

    "That girl isn't different & interesting - she's crazy! Whatever ya do don't marry her". I wouldn't have listened, once I saw that sweet T & A nothing else mattered...lol I don't really think that I could imagine changing too much else because my life would be so different that it'd be...

    Australia win 62-0 over USA

    Rugby League is a tough game, all about smashing people front on so they can see it coming. I've seen ambulances called during games of touch (supposedly non contact). Union is an even tougher game, only the fittest and toughest can play Union well. At the top level it's utterly relentless, more...

    Thought Question of Sorts...

    Think of it this way = you break up with your girlfriend, and next time you see her she's with a jerk. Some people get crazy with resentment ...but unlucky, cos she ain't your girl anymore and what she does and who she does isn't your business. A good guitar will probably still be around for...
