    NGD: Schecter Demon 7

    Well, I've always wanted a 7 string ever since I saw the first ad for Steve Vai's Ibanez Universe, but I could never justify spending the money. Came across this in a pawn shop for DIRT cheap, so I finally talked myself into it. Needs a bit of TLC. Fretboard is dry as the Sahara, bridge sag was...

    YouTube Video About My 79 Les Paul Standard

    My 79 Les Paul is my all-time favorite guitar, by far... So I made a YouTube video to show it off. :)

    Schaller S Locks.....

    Well, I couldn't really find a more appropriate forum for this, so I'll post it here. This post is part shameless self promotion, but also part simply trying to let others know about what happened to me so it hopefully doesn't happen to them. I put Schaller S Locks on the brand new Les Paul Trad...

    NGD - 2003 Les Paul Special

    Brought the latest edition to the Gibson family home on Monday. 2003 Special basically in mint condition. Sounds more Straty than my Strat with a Hot Rail pickup...

    NGD - Les Paul Traditional Pro V

    A few years ago I was scanning through Facebook and I came across an ad for Gibson. I'm a bit of a fan boy for Gibson, and Les Paul guitars in general but this one REALLY caught my eye. It was a Les Paul in a finish I had never seen before. It was called Blueberry Burst, and for the first time...

    Very sad NGD - 65? Gibson L5

    My dad was a lifelong guitar player. When he was a very young man, he found himself becoming a father and didn't know what to do, or how to support a family at his age. He had been taking music and guitar lessons since he was a child, so he stuck with what he knew. He gave guitar lessons, and he...

    NGD - 2012 Studio

    Haven't owned a Studio since about 96 or 97 so when I came across this one at a not completely unreasonable price, I decided to take the plunge. Needs a pretty intensive cleaning, but the only scratches I see on it are swirls on the pickguard and a couple more swirls on the back...

    Les Paul Special Pawn Shop Find

    I don't know if anyone else has had any Pandemic pawn shop luck, but I have managed to get some decent guitars at decent prices in the last 7 or so months. I've been pretty surprised to keep coming across guitars that look BRAND NEW in pawn shops lately. 1st was the 2019 Les Paul Tribute I found...

    NGD - 2019 Les Paul Tribute

    At lunch today, I brought home my new (to me) 2019 Les Paul Tribute in Cherry Sunburst. Found it in a pawn shop for $560 a few months ago and put it on layaway so my wife wouldn't kill me for buying ANOTHER guitar this year (Already bought 2 other guitars and 4 amps). Haven't even plugged it in...

    Getting ready to do some work on my #1

    So, I've been wanting to do some work on my #1 guitar for a few years now. It's a 79 Les Paul Standard and I've absolutely loved it since the day I bought it in !994. Here it is in all it's glory. It's a fairly typical Norlin era natural finish Standard, but for me it's pure magic. The...

    Dumb Question About TonePros Bridge

    OK, dumb question time. I'm considering replacing the stock bridge on my 77 Standard with a TonePros bridge, but I'm not entirely sure which one of their bridges would fit my guitar. I THINK it would be the NVR2 Nashville style bridge as it looks like those were introduced in the 70's. Just...

    Question about a Gibson "faded" finish...

    Hey everyone. Quick question about the Gibson "faded" finish. I have an 06 SG Faded guitar that I've had for probably 10+ years now. I don't mind the "faded" look, but I've noticed that where my arm rests across the body above and behind the bridge, and on the back of the neck, the oils in my...

    Yo!

    Hello everyone! Just stumbled across this forum and immediately signed up. I've been playing guitar since I was in my teens, and bought my 1st Les Paul a few days after I graduated high school. I took all the money my extended family gave me to go to college, and I bought my dream guitar from a...
