:lol: There are no negative posts there or here; deal with it and act like a man already, you are embarrassing yourself :slap:

:hmm: hopefully that incredible STACK thread gets a bump now and more people can see you passionately defending your position of calling a Mesa combo and a Fender Twin a stack, thanks! :yesway::beer:

There's only one person embarrassing themselves here, and it's you.

I suggest you tone it down.

I know some people find these models "stark" but I LOVE the look plus it would force me to play a little more dynamically with what's there. Does the back have the same shape and size control cavities?

Yes it's the same. Minus the switch cavity.

"Black Beauties Are THE BEST"
For long hauls yeah, but for day trips, crosstops are better.

I wonder why the PU placement is "bridge" as opposed to middle or neck position? I guess they tested out each position and found the bridge to be the most suitable. but to be honest, I use the neck PU's more often.

My first impression is "it would be thin" but I can't imagine that being the case. Is there enough tonal differences to use it all night?

...haha, sorry about all the questions but I've never seen one locally nor do I know anyone who owns one outside of this forum

Always wanted one but could never afford the Page model. Decided to get a cheaper version and modify it instead. Not the Gibson, but all Gibson powered. My primary weapon for the last 9 years.

It looks killer. I like the hardware you chose...but I couldn't help but notice that kick-ass SG on the stand. WOW :wow:

I know this is an LP site...but holy moly...that SG is slayer. The color, hardware and PU set makes it look so bad-ass. I take it you have a thing for 3 PU guitars. I just got my first 3 PU model last year and it's amazing...sounds like a Strat in the middle position. Thanks for posting the SG for me.

..my bad for going OT so here's a BB shot to get things back on track. I just had to see that SG :laugh2:

I keep staring at this one....WOW. What a BB. It's right at the close of Gibson's vintage era and cost a bundle to own so I doubt I will buy one anytime soon...but it's sure nice to look and dream haha.

I'd love to hear more about it...where was it bought, how long have you had it? Sound? Feel? all that good stuff. I bet it has a few stories to tell. :dude:

Why does everyone like this? All I did was tell the guy that he's left handed. Is there some kind of joke I'm not getting?


I think the likes are just acknowledging that you were correct in identifying them as lefties, and possibly a little relief that they now don't have to point it out themselves.:thumb:

It has a mid 69 serial No,trans tenon,one piece body ,no dot ,no volute and the pots have been changed.One I cant read,the others span early 71-late 73.
I got it in a trade in London UK early this year.
I know some of you guys are familiar with early Norlins and it sounds and feels VERY similar to the 71-72 Deluxe's I use to own,which is great.
I like the shape of these late Kalamazoo necks.

Thanks for posting more pics of that sweet 69. Many of us will never get the chance to hold an LP from the 60's so it''s great to see and hear about this rare bird. The finish looks amazing with the checking and wear.

...and THAT TELE!!!!!! Holy crap, you're just making my day over here. What a a kick ass pair of black axes (blaxes) You are one fortunate man to have them. They are just beautiful ...and so desirable. I need a bib
