    Anyone been to Tail of the Dragon?

    Took a long break from here, but have been super busy playing a buttload of shows in my hiatus. In between playing out, working, and school for my associates in science my girlfriend and I went to Tail of the Dragon in Tennessee with a local car group I’m in. Took my Focus ST there and the...

    Biggest/best show you all have played?

    On June 7th, I’m filling in on lead for a local musician named Drew Cagle and his band The Reputation playing a show opening for Puddle of Mudd. The show had me thinking about coming back here for a visit to ask you guys, what is the best/biggest shows you all have played? Obviously that is...

    New format?

    Rather peeved that all my old informational threads have had their pictures nuked in the upgrade, but it’s whatever :/

    They’re a funny thing; for most, they’re a way to get from point A to point B. Judging from how much overlap there is between car culture and guitar culture though, I’m sure most of us here swing on the side of at least having a passing interest in cars, if not considering yourself a full blown...

    Es 335 Type Guitars

    It has all stock electronics, so a 57 classic in the neck and a 57 plus in the bridge. I also replaced the nut (as the person that installed the Bigsby screwed with the Gibson bone one and made it bind) with a Tusq XL, put on a long pickguard, replaced the truss rod cover, and put single line...

    Es 335 Type Guitars

    There’s a reason they’re so loved. My ES-335 changed the way I think about guitar so much that it affected the way I think about solos on other guitars. It’s sweet while being able to let Eric Johnson licks scream out when you really push it. In addition, when you push it through a fuzz, riding...

    Who Are You People?

    1. You would rather listen to: A) Eddie Van Halen on guitar B) Chet Atkins on guitar Answer: All of the above. 2. You A) own a dirt pedal B) do not own a dirt pedal Answer: A, I have a big pedalboard that gets me a lot of versatility from anything from ambient music to rock’n’roll. Also, fuzz...

    1964 SG Reissue horn shapes....

    I agree it is fake. Send it to me and I will dispose of it properly. Sarcasm aside, permission to land is right. The 2000s ones were built off a standard, had the “wide” nut width, shallow bevels, etc. I know that one is real, because I’ve played hundreds of modern Gibsons, and even a few of...

    RIP Trini Lopez

    Rest in peace, Trini. What a phenomenal musician and singer. His loss is insurmountable.

    I sold the Origin...

    They are very similar in volume. Went from a 50 1x12 to a 20 2x12, and got the same volume out of each of them.

    Incoming NGD... Player Grade ‘63

    Might be because I use 11s. The older Maestros like a lot of tension, I’ve found. The newer ones Gibson is using are perfectly happy using 9-10s.

    Incoming NGD... Player Grade ‘63

    It does but only barely. Stays in tune phenomenal any way you slice it, though!

    Incoming NGD... Player Grade ‘63

    A few updates, plus some gratuitous pictures. Me, having the teenager/young-adult ego I do, I went ahead and bought a Mono-plak for it. Also, another pic is included, so you guys can see for yourself the oddity that is the double side dots. Most important update though? Under the tenon...

    My 4th Of July Guitars

    +1 on understanding what being made for the JDM means... Still made in the US, just for a specific market. BTW, he’s starting to remind me of John Hall (the lovely ceo of Rickenbacker).

    My 4th Of July Guitars

    You’re telling me, that a Caddy color from golden age of cars isn’t American? Sheesh. :rofl: Pelham Blue is one of those colors that’s really hard to photograph. My Firebird even more so, due to the ever-so slightly yellowed clear coat, and the natural lighting here on the fourth gave it the...

    My 4th Of July Guitars

    Similar brand sandwich with mine. 1963 SG Standard, 2018 Fender American Vintage 1965 Reissue Jazzmaster, 2016 Gibson Firebird Lyre Tail (Japanese domestic market run, based off a very rare variation of the Firebird V from 1965 with no German carve on the head and traditional tuners instead of...

    Your dream SG?

    Well I’ve dreamed about owning a vintage Gibson for the 8 years I’ve been playing guitar, and while that itch was scratched for a while by my late great uncle’s ‘72 ES-335TDC, it was only a year or so I had that guitar in my possession before a cousin took it (grandchildren take priority over a...
