    Dream Guitar/Guitar Porn

    They certainly are (relatively) more affordable than bursts, but still way more than I could comfortably afford to drop on a guitar. This particular guitar was advertised at £7495. Not sure what it sold for, but sadly way above my pay grade...

    Dream Guitar/Guitar Porn

    I'd love to own a real vintage '58 Les Paul Junior. Something like this:

    Limited Runs?

    I once owned this historic reissue Gibson Les Paul (SG) Custom. When I asked Gibson support for more details about this particular model, they told me the following: "From time to time Custom Shop decides to release a run of guitars that differ in specification from the standard product range...

    Many of us are home players, admit it. Let's see those home rigs.

    Update: The neighbours' cat came round to inspect and approves :h5:

    NGD: 2021 R9 - Green Lemon

    Just wow - that is absolutely stunning.

    Many of us are home players, admit it. Let's see those home rigs.

    To be fair, it took me 30 years and one hell of a lot of gear to figure out what worked best for me.

    What first started the need for a guitar in your life?

    I always wanted to play guitar, but don't remember exactly why. I do know the first time I saw the Paradise City video on TV, that was it. I was absolutely going to do that one day, no matter how long it took. With one of those guitars the guy with the wild curly black hair was using...

    What is "it" for you....?

    For me it is the guitar I pick up in the evening with the intention of playing for maybe 10 or 20 minutes and the next thing I know it's already 3am in the morning and I'm supposed to work tomorrow.

    Many of us are home players, admit it. Let's see those home rigs.

    Fairly simple affair: Handwired valve amp which works very well at low volumes. Boost pedal in front. Delay pedal in the effects loop. P90s PAF-style humbuckers. Done.

    2010 Junior Specs?

    Lucky you. I very much wanted one of those, but sadly it just never happened.

    2010 Junior Specs?

    @endial is 100% correct. I clearly remember there was a run of Juniors in 2009/2010 which were actually called "1958 reissues", but not in a Custom Shop/historic reissue sense. They were supposed to have 50's neck profiles, and yes, for some reason the satin white ones came with ebony...

    Pickup Imbalance After Setup

    It goes a surprisingly long way if you become comfortable with doing even just the very basics, like adjusting the truss rod, action, intonation, pickups, etc.

    So after 3 years i had to do it ...

    Lovely guitar, that.

    Poll: Would you buy a Mark Agnesi signature Les Paul Junior?

    I'd sell my Slash signature Strat for the privilege.

    The 2011 LP Traditional (Standard?) Faded Mega-Thread

    But at the time I'd also decided to just stick with just my '11 Faded and '16 Special, so I sold the '07 Faded and my Gretsch Panther (which was an absolute beast of a guitar, but Les Pauls are my first love).

    The 2011 LP Traditional (Standard?) Faded Mega-Thread

    On paper it had a 50's profile, but there was a weirdness to it which made it feel too thin, too round and too narrow. It's difficult to explain, but as example, I could hardly play a regular Open A chord on it. Just didn't suit my hands at all. Had it been easy to re-neck a Les Paul, I'd...

    The 2011 LP Traditional (Standard?) Faded Mega-Thread

    It sure was! It was a difficult choice to sell that one, but I couldn't get on with its neck profile.

    The 2011 LP Traditional (Standard?) Faded Mega-Thread

    I'm a bit disappointed I sold two of these years ago. Should have kept them as an investment :naughty:
