    It’s here! NSD 10” Celestion Gold for my ‘65 PRRI

    Wow. Just wow. The Gold is not over hyped. I have been a victim of high expectations in the past, so I was prepared to possibly be underwhelmed. This is definitely not the case! I have also heard these take a long time to break in. All I know is it already sounds wonderful! First impressions...

    Fender Mahogany Strat HH, am I crazy for craving this thing?

    Cruising Reverb last night, and saw one of these located at a shop about 75 miles from my house. I messaged them, and told them about my Yamaha Revstar 502T that I’d be trading. Depending on what he has to say about my guitar, I may go over and play the Strat. I know it’s a completely...

    NGD- 2020 Les Paul Special

    Arrived earlier, haven’t played more than a few minutes, as I really can’t due to recovering from shoulder surgery. I can finally get out of the sling, and pick/strum for growing short periods of time. I bought this for a belated 56th birthday gift to myself. I can say that the P90s bark, like I...

    Sale/trade Mint Celestion G12H-75 Creamback 16ohm $90 local (Illinois)

    I was hoping it was more like a Greenback tone. Very articulate, and hi-fi sounding, but not ice-picky. Not even broke in yet. wanting a G12M-25 Greenback in trade, or $90. I can travel up to Chicago area to meet. I’m in central Illinois.

    Dave Grohl rocks out with Big Bird, and Elmo!

    How cool is this guy? Leading the Foo Fighters through year after year of great music, and just getting better all the time (IMO), but he still has time to bring a positive message to the chillens. The dude is one of my heroes!

    I’ve had my Standard 50s for 2 weeks now- Review of my 1st Gibson

    I knew these were nice, as I played both the Standard 50s, and 60s in a few GCs. But, until I spend some quality time at home with a guitar, I can’t guarantee I’ll bond with it. After playing it almost every day for the last 2 weeks, I can say that this guitar continues to blow me away! Once I...

    NGD- 2019 Les Paul Standard 50s

    I’ve been lurking around here, as the GAS for a genuine Gibson LP built to the point of a purchase. I owned an Epi LP Standard Pro for a brief time last year, but I couldn’t get along with the thin, flat D shaped neck. I played a few of the entry level Gibsons at guitar center, and the GAS clock...

    Hello from central Illinois!

    Hi, everyone! I am a 55 year old guy who picked up guitar again 12 months ago, after many years away. This time I’m serious about making actual music vs just noise, lol. I’ve been lurking around here for a while, and just ordered my first Real Les Paul today. I’ve played quite a few in shops...
