    Harrison/Clapton Lucy bites it...see if you wince too

    Yeah, I was shocked. I'm glad it landed on it's butt and avoided a headstock break. John Lennon's reaction was classic. "A guitar fell over Paul, a guitar fell over!" :D

    Bring Out Your Clones! (Marshall)

    Here's my 2003 / 2004 Gabi Bucataru (Gabriel) 1974 18 watt replica. Swanson cabinet. Heyboar transformers. Gabi was the admin at the 18 watt Forum back then, and I had him build this beauty for me. This was just as he was starting to build full-time with his new company Gabriel Sound Garage...

    New Amp Day!

    Congrats! What speakers are in that beast? Btw, I just snagged a (much smaller and lighter) Marshall 1965a 4×10 cab. Great stuff! Hey BK, you might want to black out your address in that photo...

    LPF UK meet IV 2022.

    Woody, it's an easy fix for MikeSlub to remedy. He did it for me. https://lespaulforum.com/index.php?threads/problems-when-changing-email-address.217221/ I wish I was in the UK for this! I've enjoyed reading of your past exploits, and would love to meet you all; especially Stu Castledine...

    I'd Gibson junior SG

    I don't know, might be. (You do the math ;)) I just measured my 1963 Junior's width at the edge of the fretboard, (by the nut) because the nut is a hair thinner than the fretboard on my SG. My measurements are 43.23 mm or 1.702 inches. (Again, it's the fretboard, not the nut width ) I don't...

    NGD 2014 R8 and some cool old amps.

    Looks like a great vintage Jeff Beck rig! "Over under sideways down"! :D Sorry, no idea how to fix that. I think cell phone pics sometimes do that. Someone more tech savvy should respond soon. (y)
