    '99 Historic LP Tuner Question

    I've got a great '99 R6. The tuners are not labeled. They do not say "Gibson Deluxe". They are the proper size and all. btw, they have nice ivoroid tulip buttons on them. Does anyone know what the proper tuner would or would not say? Thanks.

    NGD: 2011 R4 Dark Back

    I don't think I've ever posted a NGD thread. This time I felt that the guitar and the buying experience were worth mentioning. First, Mark Bishop (MGL) was the nicest dealer I've worked with in a long time. Good product helps, but Mark made the experience easy and very pleasant. Secondly, I...

    ZZTop!

    Got to see the boys again last night here in Knoxville. They put on a fabulous show. Billy did a few more extended solos on a number of tunes. I think he was energized by an appreciative crowd. They played at least three tunes that were new to me. Perhaps from their upcoming album, not...
