It's always cool to hear stories like this, the same sort of thing happened for me with a Burny Randy Rhoads model I bought/sold/bought back years later.
That's a great era for LP Classics BTW, yours is a real stunner. The top is just beautiful, they were using some choice woods...
WTB a cheap Jackson, definitely non-trem, preferably a King V shape but open to others.
Looking to stay in the $400 and under price point.
Open to other brands, just looking for something kinda shred-y and without a tremolo.
I've been bitten by the shredder bug again and am looking for a nice hardtail super-strat. I've got my sight set on a Jackson SLSMG in particular but am open to other MIJ goodness as well. Let me know what you've got!
I picked up one in the Charcoal finish and love it - needed a P90 backup for my SG and it fit the bill nicely.
I used to be a total elitist when it came to LP's - only really wanted a hog neck, full thickness body, binding etc. But man, the slim body and light weight really makes...
Used to use one in the bridge position with a '59 in the neck in a couple LP studios I had - loved the thickness and drive it gave to Marshall style amps, similar low end to a 500T or 498T but with a lot more clarity. Totally woke up the sound of those guitars.
I owned a VM 100 watter for a while, and while I thought it sounded great I had the exact same issue during loud practices. Just didn't have any more to give after about 4 on the master. Both the 50 watt Soldano I replaced it with, as well as the SL-X 100 watt I have now are in another world as...
Please do! :thumb: It's about time this forum saw some more Kramer love, being a Gibson owned brand and all.
Also the stars are bicycle decals, so they're reflective - it's gonna look great under stage lights.
Have everything dialed in perfectly, set up like a dream, it's just impeccable now. Re-wired the volume pot so it doesn't get muddy when you roll it down. Happier than a pig in ****.
Playing a David Bowie tribute night next week, already got my costume. Not a perfect match, (much less orange in...
After a month of agonizing over it's safe arrival, and after a while thinking it might not happen, it's surreal to actually have the thing in my hands.
The pickup on these older MusicYo era ones is a Gibson 84T, and while it's close to a JB it's definitely a lot warmer in the high end - I...
Well, it finally showed up!
Picked it up from the post office just after noon - after all the futt-buckery they put me through the lazy bastards couldn't be bothered to even attempt home delivery. I see an "attempted delivery" update on the tracking page at 7:55am. I was awake, no sign of them...
ugh. that's truly deplorable.
a buddy of mine brought one of those back from a vacation in China, he paid $100 and they threw in two legit Planet Waves satch straps!! It sucked on every level, but made a great decoration.
It's FINALLY in Canada....the original expected delivery from Canada Post was on the 7th...and two days before that it was scanned on vancouver island only about an hour from me, having taken the ferry over from the mainland. Miraculously on the morning of the 7th it was scanned by CP...
Quite a few famous guitarists in the death metal scene use one as a "boost" into an overdriven Mesa or Marshall, set much the same way you've set yours.
screw what the boutique boys and pedal snobs think, I've had great if not better results with stock Boss, MXR and old EH pedals more often...
man, that finish is awesome! congrats!
RE: the fret issue - almost certainly from shipping, it can happen to practically any guitar shipped over long distances. This is why ESP puts that weird plastic slip in between the strings and frets for shipping:
