Black/White opposite binding (white side had black binding/black side had white binding AND NIBS!!!!!
I was listening on YouTube to a soundbaoard recording of Sabbath from Aug 1975--shortly before my Brother saw them, and lots of peeps said that was their peak.
My vote would be Sabotage; while I really like Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die, I think that through The Thrill of it All was the...

Moving on one of my Carr Mercury Amps: I picked up a cream/blue (blue is my FAVE color) Mercury so I would like to move this beautiful tone machine on to someone else.
I picked this up used
I believe it is a 2003 (the first year, I THINK)
I'm considering a MTM R9.
I want gloss and
I want a back finish that will not bleed or lose its red hue as well as a top that will retain its vivid CSB finish.
What sort of terminology would I use when ordering, or is the preceding description sufficient??
If I charge ahead, I'll most...
HOLY CRIMINY!!! As @JMP and @mudface can attest to, Carl's Custom Amps are AMAZING, which doesn't surprise me; Carl is very very precise; was that way as a student in high school too.
SO, Today, I took delivery of my Vintage 12 today (a variation of the Vintage 7, whose info is below):
Being the tube amp junkie, I'm always on the lookout for ANOTHER amp.
Right now, I'm vascillating between the new Studio Classic (combo) and the used Studio 15 (4001).

Suggestions/Recommendations. I may very well end up with both in the end :laugh2: :run...
Back in the 90s, I had a Marshall 410 slant for the JCM600. Stupidly, I sold it, and have never been able to find a replacement, and sinceI can't make my own comparison, I thought I'd ask here.
So, in your experience, or based on your knowledge, would I see an appreciable difference in having...
My school district has just adopted an "equitable grading system" in which our grading scale is no longer based on 0-100%; rather, it is based on 50-100%.
If a student does not submit an assignment, instead of awarding a "0" we have to award a "50" so that the student does not lose...
I am not looking at anything at this time, but if I was looking at R's purportedly with Brazillian rosewood, what would be the documentation? CITES certificate? Some sort of certificate from Gibson?
I found this really nice video explaining the differences between Custom Shop and USA Les Paul models. It MAY help to answer "is a Custom Shop Model worth it?"
There are convenient time marks in the description labeled "difference" so if you just want to hear what the differences are and skip...
I'm in discussions with 2 Forum Members regarding my R9 Les Paul. Here's the stuff:
48 Continental Buyers Only. Pay Pal. $3700 shipped/insured (this way, if you don't bond, you can move it on with minimal loss).
I LOVE the top; the neck is just too beefy for me. If I measured correctly, it...
Eh, it's a long-shot to check all my boxes, but what the heck--I am looking for the following:
No smoke-smells (very allergic) on the guitar or case

Vibrant red on the top (no fading/washing out) as well as on the back--no fading/washing out or browning on the back...
I really like the wide binding in the cutaway section of a Lester circa Norlin era through, what, 1999ish?
