    Well took the leap today... had an Ibanez SB1200 double neck that was stolen by a repair shop whose owner had a drug problem back around 1999-2000. Missed that guitar, so I finally coughed up the bucks and ordered a EDS 1275 from the custom shop. I think that will make up for the 21 year absence...

    Buck Owens Harmony Acoustic?

    Special? Not really. When Harmony produced them in the sixties the best thing about them were they were one of the only models in the catalog still made in the USA. Most of their instrument lines had been moved to Japan including their mandolins and banjos. If you go to the stewmac page on...

    What is the best non-Gibson Les Paul?

    Had a '72 Ventura with a bolt on neck that wasn't horrible. I always thought the 70s lawsuit Ibanez models sounded best and they certainly kept their value, the Tokais were pretty good too, as were the Electras. Today, Gibson has done a pretty good job keeping their Epiphone models impressive...

    Now that all my rowdy buddies have finished their Covid vaccinations, been reconfiguring the studio for starting up face to face rehearsals again after a year. We're all in our 70s now and that's a year none of us is ever going to get back.

    Just How Hard Is It To Write an "Original" Song?

    Writing the song isn't the problem. Collecting the residuals is the problem. The Copyright office never sent a check to anybody. If you can write it, and you can't flip it on Billboard, sell it as a jingle or incidental music.

    2020 Gibson USA ES-335 figured

    Your instrument in spite of the flaws is beautiful. If you are seriously considering returning the instrument to the factory, it would be worth your while to talk to someone at Gibson. I've had to return two instruments to the factory since 2017, and the experience was not what I expected. The...
