    Don't Sleep on the Blues Jr.

    For the last couple of years my gigging rig has consisted of a Marshall DSL-20 with a Creamback and some lower gain pre-amp tubes (v1), pushed with a Hardwired Tube Overdrive pedal for both clean and crunch (I use the red channel for crunch). I was satisfied with the clean/crunch and it worked...

    NGD: 2020 Gibson Les Paul 60th Anniversary R0 VOS M2M V1 Golden Poppy

    Thanks to Curt at House of Guitars, this landed with me on Saturday: 2020 Gibson Les Paul 60th Anniversary 1960 Reissue VOS V1 M2M. I can't say enough great things about Curt and HOG--he gets the best tops. You owe it to yourself to check him out if you're in the market. Curt commissioned a...

    Gibson + Calton Cases = $$$$ $1215 for a LP case? And it's not even waterproof? I'll stick with my $250 SKB i-Series, thanks.

    NGD: 2015 Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop M2M Custom Siberian Tiger

    Who says persistence doesn't pay off? I've been looking for the right one of these for six years. This one is an odd duck too--a M2M version of an almost identical production guitar run of 25 the year before. The only real difference is Custom Buckers instead of the usual 490R/498T. I love...

    No Way To Delete An Album

    If you create an Album in the Media section, you can delete photos from an album, but there is no way to delete the Album itself. Even if you delete all the photos from an Album, you are just left with an empty Album. Can we get this fixed?

    NGD: 2019 Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop Standard 1960 Reissue CME Spec Slow Iced Tea Fade

    Thanks to David over at @Chicago Music Exchange for twisting my arm and making me pick up this CME Spec R0. It's my contribution to help revitalize the economy in the greater Chicago area. It's got a little finish checking near the pots for good measure. Slow Iced Tea Fade was not a standard...

    So no one was asking for it........

    ..........but they made it anyway. This looks like something HJ would have cooked up. Oh, it's called 'Bats In Flight' and it's $7999. At least it has an ebony fretboard:

    NGD: 2019 50th Anniversary 1959 Reissue Slow Iced Tea Fade

    A little belated--purchased a few weeks ago from a fellow MLPer (thanks davep!). My very first R9. It took me a bit to find one with a slimmer neck, but these 60th Anniversary R9s definitely have smaller necks with smaller shoulders than in past years. It's very comfortable for even this...

    NGD: 2014 Gibson Les Paul Custom Figured Trans Amber

    So here's an interesting specimen: an LP Custom Trans Amber blackback that is 1 of 5 made for Canadian Gibson distributor Yorkville Sound. These five were all sold in Canada.

    Gibson Dealers in Orlando

    I'm going to be traveling next week on business in Orlando, FL and wondering if there are any worthwhile Gibson dealers in the immediate Orlando area that are worth checking out?

    NGD: 1997 Gibson Les Paul Elegant Firemist

    I've been looking at these for a long time and have been wanting one of the 1997 vintage and finally found one. These are "love it or hate it" guitars. If you like these, you like them because of the chambering, the abalone inlays, and (for the 1997 year) the Custom Shop wreath on the...

    2018 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Standard Rocket Red (GC/MF Exclusive)

    A limited-edition from Guitar Center/Musician's Friend. They must have had some leftover red flake paint from their '75 Deluxe reissues. I kinda like it.

    NGD: 2010 Gibson Les Paul R0 VOS Ebony

    Almost the one that got away. I originally saw and tried out this guitar in the fall of 2017 at Mark's Guitar Loft. I didn't pull the trigger and I should have (sorry Mark!), but it was sold shortly thereafter. I've been looking for an ebony R0 ever since, as they are pretty rare. I've...

    NGD: 2017 Gibson Les Paul M2M Roasted Custom Vintage Burst

    A little bit late, but I picked up this '17 Custom over the summer. This is one of Music Zoo's Roasted Made-2-Measure Customs, so it's 1 of 1. Previous owner installed Saturday Night Specials, which I rather like, but this is a fun guitar to play. It's my first foray into Richlite fretboards...
