    Natural resonance?

    I recently noticed my 2001 SG Classic does a peculiar thing which I can't explain.. If I play an "F" note an hold it, no matter which octave or which string, it rings out for about 3 seconds and then flows over in the upper harmonic. Only the F note does this, guitar unplugged or amplified. And...

    Boost pedals, which one do you play?

    I'm considering a dedicated boost pedal to add on my board. I use a RYRA Klone now as a boost, but realised i like it better as a low gain OD. Had or used: MXR/CAE mc 401, MXR Micro amp, Timmy at boost setting, OCD 1.4 as a "dirty" boost (which is great for!). So i wonder what you guys use as a...

    MI Audio Blue Boy Deluxe overdrive v1

    Heard this pedal in the rig of a guitarist with nearly the same amp/guitar setup as mine (vert input 50w early 80's jcm 800 and Gibson R8) and i dug it! It seems tweakable and i understand has an open opampsocket for interchanging the standard 4558 for any opamp you want. Current "dirt" path...

    possible NGD

    Going to check out a 2018 R8 today. It has a nice top flametop which to me is reminicent of the original 59 les paul i see almost everyday: Charlie's most beautifull Nicky. Colour is a dark bourbon fade, the 'fadeouttowardsbridge' Pearly Gates type, so that makes 2 features of 2 of my favourite...

Are there any specific things to consider seeing nylon is quite different material to work...

    Is this custom 1 of them 68's?

    I wanted a White lp custom, so i got me one, a 99' model. After playing it and seeing it up close i noticed some things i was'nt familiar with in custom models i've seen or played before, beeing: -a 6 digit impressed serial number -an ABR with posts directly screwed in the top -a 3layer...

    1-piece board on a august 2012 LP 60th ann.

    A bit late i guess, but here's some close-up pics of my 60th LE anniversary LP Goldtop Fretboard end. It was made in august 2012 according to the ser.nr. and it sports a 1-piece rosewood board. On the pics there's some glue residue on the end of the board from the old nut, but it's 100% 1-piece...
