    Reissue's VS Heritage.....

    As a lot of you guys know, I have owned literally 100's of Reissue's over the last 12 years or so. Everything from Murphy's, to CC's, Artist runs, and good ol' regular Reissues. My #1 guitar for playing out has been my 2011 R9. Specs be damned, NOTHING has ever been able to touch that guitar...

    2021 MONSTER TOP R9

    Well, my tax guy went from “you should come out ok” to YOU OWE......LOTS. My premature purchase is your gain. Tops are subjective, but IMO, this could/should be up there for “Top of the Year” without a doubt. The color is “Mojave Burst”....a special one done for HOG. I’ve included pictures...

    RIP @ Zakmichael:(

    It is with a heavy heart that I post this one :(. Mike was a great guy and friend.....he definitely battled his demons, but ugh. I met him through the forum here, and we hung out quite a bit when he lived here in Michigan. He’s been in Florida for a few years, but.....GODDAMNIT. This one...

    Well, band gigs have been scarce. We played early March before shit got shut down, once in June, and finally scheduled the next 2 Saturday’s. Outside of that, I bought a used (but like brand new) mountain bike, and this Honda 2018 CRF 450R. The first pic of the bike is how I got it. Basically...

    This is a SUPER clean 2000 R9. Original case, which is spotless. No COA. Neck is very full. I do not have the tools or knowledge to take measurements, so please don’t ask. If you don’t like a thicker neck, this isn’t for you. Weight is under 9 lbs., pictured below. This axe is a SOLID 8.5/10...

    This is the new FM3 from Fractal that there is quite a wait list for. Asking $300 less than I paid. Unit came new in the Fractal packaging and will ship out that way. I also printed out the 100 page manual. I’ll include the cord as well. $1175 SHIPPED pp gift.

    WTB Fractal FM 3

    I know they aren’t officially out yet, but I’ve seen a couple on the Bay. Hoping one of our members here was lucky enough to score one and wants to move it on. Willing to pay a little more than retail, but not crazy over. Thanks!

    Quick value question on a studio LP

    First’s the first and the 5th number for the year on the SN correct? If so, 1990 Alpine white studio....decent shape? Will that have a rosewood or ebony board? What would you put the value at roughly with case? TYIA

    Searching for sugarman

    If you are bored, check this movie out! Incredible story. There were a few older threads on it but they were years old as it came out around 2012. Saw it last night on Netflix.

    Might have found someone worse than Bonamassa....

    As far as marketing goes. Jesus Christ. So I actually saw this kid at Norm’s when I was out in LA. I had no idea he was anybody, but I heard this acoustic 12 string being played quite well. I turned around to see what I THOUGHT was a 12 yr. old girl playing it. It was very impressive. I asked if...

    FS: Single cut Les Paul

    This was commissioned to be built by a VERY reputable builder in 2005. A “Pearly Gates” old growth Brazilian board and high end repro parts. I purchased this recently from a reputable member here, and unfortunately, the tax man came calling. Feel free to PM me or call me for details...

    How I personally feel

    The world would be a much better place if everyone just got along, and weren’t so judgemental. Some of the nicest people I know would be considered “weird” by others, and I’m glad to call them my friends. Imagine a world without the Freddy Mercury’s, Elton John’s, and David Bowie’s of the...

    Adventures of Jon and Dave....guitar safari.

    Pics to come! So Dave @darth550 and I “met” on this board back around 2013. After Brooke got diagnosed originally with autism, I “vented” here on MLP, and he too had an autistic son and reached out. Although we never actually met (I’m im MI and he in CA), we became buds and have talked probably...

    Unusual CFB coach celebration....

    I can see being excited to win the title, and I don’t follow LSU that closely. Is the “pick your nose and eat it” a common celebration? Maybe a little “nose gumbo”? Lol Thought those southern boys’ mamma’s taught them better manners!
