    Thoughts on this flame top?

    ALWAYS PLAY IT, might sound like a crack of thunder but in terms of just the looks department i agree with the esteemed gentlemen above, kinda basic

    the R9's are so passé .... now its all about the 58's ...

    They all have some cool tops, some 59s look to BBQ some 58s look like a bad LP classic with a clown finish some 60s look to much like the tomato soup can, and have way over stated tops. the point is THEY ARE ALL COOL AND ALL DIFFERENT. the 58,59,60 are all similar enough to be lumped together...

    What is your favorite album of all time?

    Not really a "guitar" album but The Band- The Band ( brown album) those songs changed my life, its the most "important" music i have ever found and it found me at a time when i was trying to be a GUITAR HERO, in the local scene and in my own mind. I never leave the house without that on my...

    Great article on the Beano Burst!

    the idea the heavies of the era had a masterplan relating to ECs guitars seems a little outa focus, most likely it was no different then anyone of us having something ripped off at a local club, which most of us have probably gone thru. and at this point its less and less about how did it grow...

    Great article on the Beano Burst!

    the conjecture surrounding this guitar in particular is INSANE, i have been on this forum for 10+ years, checking in sometimes being more active then others but one thing u can always count on, on the old LPF is a good beano thread going. I will say if it did surface with definitive proof of...

    Great article on the Beano Burst!

    I can imagine potentially its a sore subject. these threads over the years always turn into conjecture about ECs "feelings" I wish some guitar publication, or maybe Mr.Bacon the author of the article in question here would just ring up eric and ask for the definitive Beano interview, and if...

    Great article on the Beano Burst!

    id venture ur probably correct, that Eric knows more about the subject then hes letting on. it could be a Jeff Beck situation, they offered beck his JBG burst back and he passed on the guitar. Id like anyone who has a chance to do a serious sit down interview with EC to actually directly ask...
