    RS True 60s

    If you are not using the Riff Raffs, I would absolutely pop those in there first.

    RS True 60s

    My fave Semi Hollow tones come from 60s Pat#s and later T top pickups (and their clones). They are perfect for midrange heavy barky ES 3x5 series guitars. I've not tried the RS pickups.

    Slash Signature LP Epi - which color is your favorite and why?

    I had an original BC Rich BICH from the same time period BITD. It was WAYYYYYYY too much $hit. Coil splits. Phase switch. Preamp, etc.

    I'm shocked and amazed.

    Did not know this bit of info. So maybe the fake bumbles ARE historically accurate? :laugh2:

    Took a chance and purchased my first LP

    I have to say in all honestly that I don't see too many unbursts I like- most are too washed out with the natural color of whatever maple top it has. But this one is probably the best I have seen. Gorgeous. Congrats, and crank up the gain! :D Edit- and yeah I've had my Fender phases too-...

    NGD: 2021 Standard 50s in Iced Tea Burst

    Congrats! Had those been available a year earlier, I would have snapped one up. When I was shopping for my last Les Paul, I was bored to tears with the colors they had for the 50s- My last 3 Les Pauls were a VSB,CSB, and Goldtop. I loved the IT on the 60s, but the neck is not my thing.

    Mesa Boogie F50 combo

    Owned one of these back in their heyday. Very underrated Mesa. Clean Channel alone is worth the price of admission. Cranked it reminds me of 70s Brad Whitford (Aerosmith). GLWTS and a bump for ya!

    Kill me! The defiling of a '54 GT

    Exactly. Anybody doing consignments , including Trogly, would need to be figuring in their cut as well. Just nutty on the initial pricing though- he's way off here. I'm not a Trogly basher nor do I take him for an authority from "on high" when it comes to Gibson. I watch him because I like to...

    Gibson Demo Shop is Killin It

    Considering these are one offs, very limited and most sell within hours, they are not missing any sales from outside the USA. The only people missing out are potential customers overseas.

    Kill me! The defiling of a '54 GT

    Yikes. The guitar *IS* a consignment, so I'm guessing the owner had final say on pricing, but no doubt Trogly had some influence there, and yeah....for that butcher job, that's about 10-15K too much.

    10" speakers for modeling amps

    I appreciate everyone's input, Thank You! Unfortunately I don't have any need/use for the powered versions (and space is at a premium in my temporary living quarters) This would go into a CODE 25 which is my new practice amp (again... I had one for a bit that my Son took to college a few...

    Help with an OLD Dimarzio.

    There were many clones or copies of double hex pole dimarzios used in the old MIJ guitars. Ibanez had a pretty famous one, the V2, which was in many Destroyers and such of the early 1980s. my 1981 DT400 had them. I had a MIJ BC Rich that had a similar look to yours posted above that were SuperD...

    Any thoughts on the Dimarzio PAF Master?

    Yep the original DP103 (PAF) is the best thing Larry ever did* when it comes to "PAF". I used those in a fair # of guitars back in the 1980s. I have not tried the new 59s though, yet. *Barring those actual PAF rewinds he did for Hamer in the 70s. If you've ever played an old Hamer with one...

    I'm shocked and amazed.

    I'm not a true believer in 50s wiring. I did that for about 15 years and It has it's advantages, and it's disadvantages. I've gone back to modern wiring (with quality measured pots and caps). FWIW, my 2K5 R8 had modern wiring and I would never have touched it. Sonic Orgasm right out of the case.

    The PAF sound?

    I think these may be the best sounding pickups Gibson have done in decades, but I didn't mention them because they are not available except from someone who sells them out of a guitar. I love my set, and I keep trying to find something better, and they keep going back into the guitar. That...
