    Tall black pickup rings?

    If you're looking for tall rings, Dimarzio rings are the right height and four bucks a pop. I don't recall ever seeing the tall historic height ones available aftermarket.

    Dilemma With a Serial Number

    Hi, I bought a players 60's SG Standard. It was advertised as a possible '63 however I was pretty sure from the photos it was later. I got the guitar and it definitely has a 1 9/16" nut width which narrows it down to 65-66. Now this thing is a definitely a player, it has multiple repairs...

    Duane Allman two Goldtops?

    So I found these photos posted on the Big House's Facebook page. In the first Duane is playing a Goldtop with a poker chip on it unlike how the guitar normally was. In the second, it looks like Johnny Winter is playing the Goldtop more normally associated with Duane. Could Duane and Johnny...

    Neck pup sounds exactly like the bridge...

    I've had Duncan Antiquities in my 2001 R8 for a while now. Granted I never noticed this before because most of the time when I play with both pups at the same time they have been set at different volumes, plus I have never been a big "woman tone" fan till recently. So cut to yesterday. I set...

    Little skeptical about tech 21 but....

    Damn this thing sounds good!!!! I was looking for a small versitile amp and boy does the Trademark 10 deliver. The Marshall setting is better than my old Marshall combo. I am just blown away at how many tones this has. I haven't even tweeked it too much. Everyone on the forum was right this...

    I got an R8!!!

    Today I picked up my 01 R8. Iced Tea finish with a lovely top. My god what have I been missing all these years! The guitar just rings. The neck is just beautiful. Real chunky. I did the deal at Marks Guitar Loft and I must say I couldn't be happier. Sorry just needed to brag a little.

    They are playing an old Carl Perkins and Friends show from the 80's. (11 p.m. eastern) It has Clapton, Harrison, and they made reference to Les Paul already. I am sure people here have seen it but I haven't seen it before and I must say it is incredible! :dude :dude :dude

I woke up this morning, turned on my tv and changed it to a channel only to find snow. Then I have to search for the channel. Sorry for the rant but does anyone else find this...

    Dickey Betts put a whammy bar on Goldie?!?!?!?

    Ok I got the ABB box set "Dreams" and was flipping through the booklet that it came with. On page 23 of the book (I can't scan the picture right now) at the bottom. Dickey is holding a goldtop that has wear in about the same spots as goldie with some kind of floyd rose/khaler tremolo on it. Does...

    A variation of the wood steam out trick.

    Today I had my SG in my lap and it fell into my desk pushing in a hunk of wood. Rather upset about this I tried to think of a way to fix it when I remembered the trick in Dan's book about using a soldering iron to steam out wood. Since I didn't have a soldering iron handy I tried to think what...

    A new toy to play with

    Yesterday I picked up a cherry red faded sg. I must say that was a little put off by some negative comments about them for a while but the one I got is very nice. It is good because one I got rid of an epiphone to do it (good ridance) and two it is a great guitar. A few of the fret ends are a...
