    ‘61 Reissue Temptation

    I noticed a used 61 Reissue for sale locally. I REALLY don’t need another guitar, but it’s such a pretty thing, I need to at least try to justify it. What are the differences between a ‘61 Reissue and a Standard? 57 Classic PICKUPS vs 490’s. What else?

    Set Ups

    I just read a comment by Col Mustard stating the importance of a good set up by a luthier. How true! It makes all the difference. Here is a story: I bought a Gibson Hummingbird from an older lady about 2 years ago. She never played it because it wasn't set up. She got frustrated and bought...

    Refinish . . . Is that a bad word?

    I had this beautiful instrument refinished about two years ago, bringing it back to new condition. I just offered it for sale on Craigslist, only to find that the word "Refinished" is like a bastard red haired child. What's your opinion? I've seen a few refinished guitars on here and they're...

    New Toy for very little Money

    You certainly can get your money's worth with Epiphone. I spent almost two hours today playing this guitar and my new Gibson Kirk Douglas SG. Yes . . . the Kirk Douglas is better, but this Epiphone G-400 Custom is a lot of spank for the money. I bought it used from Craigslist yesterday...

    Esp ltd ???

    What is the story behind ESP guitars? I just bought one, an EC-256, on a close out sale. Are they any good? This one feels like it plays pretty good, and the pickups sound OK too. Does any one have an opinion?
