    Cool! Now I suppose that you're hunting gators and pythons, eh?;)

    New R9

    Were you in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, or in Okanogan County in Washington State? We spell it differently in Canada, but they back up to each other. I grew up in the Central Okanagan near Kelowna. But yeah, there sure were a lot of Mule Deer there. I saw lots of nice racks on...

    New R9

    It does sound good, doesn't it? He later goes on to install an aluminum Faber tailpiece and some boutique pick-ups made by Matt Gleeson of Monty's Guitars. The most noticeable improvement, though, is the lightweight tailpiece. The pick-ups he bought used and got a deal on them. They're...

    New R9

    Nice video! Thanks! I actually prefer the BurstBuckers in that one. They seem a little muted compared to the CustomBuckers, but they also don't sound as tinny. Thanks for the heads up on the CustomBuckers, but that guy in Seoul can keep them. They're just over $900 CAD. I'll keep looking...

    Does anyone remember the price of a Gibson Les Paul VOS R8 in 2007?

    Thanks! BTW, how do you like the sound of a chambered Les Paul?

    Thanks! I have BurstBucker 2 (neck) and 3 (bridge) pickups in my two Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standards......and quite like them. I did notice that the CustomBuckers seem to have more clarity in this gentleman's YouTube comparison video: I was just curious what your thoughts were. Those...

    Thanks again! Yeah, NOK is not a currency that I'm familiar with.

    We’re back!

    I was wondering why I wasn't able to log on for the last few days.

    Jimmy Page : The Anthology

    That's cool! I didn't know that. It would be nice if Jimmy Page, and the rest of the greats, would list what steps they took to get their tone.

    New R9

    That's another nice guitar! How do you like the Burstbuckers compared to the Custombuckers in your R9? Southern Idaho, eh? I should have known with a name like IDLP. Those desert or xeric shrublands are a dead giveaway for you being out west. I suppose that you have more than few rattlers...

    Only one guitar

    I'll take the Burst that Eric Clapton used on The Beano Album and that was pinched when he started with Cream. I ought to be able to sell it for millions. Then, I could buy a new R9, all the gear I could ever want, and a nice house............with lots of cash left over.

    Jimmy Page : The Anthology

    Cool! Jimmy Page was one of my major influences as a teenager. He is the main reason that I bought an acoustic guitar over an electric......when I could finally afford one. I'd really like to know how he got that Leslie speaker effect on Down By The Seaside. Does he mention it in the book?

    New R9

    That's really nice! On a side note, that dry grass and sagebrush in the background reminds me of home in the Okanagan. Enjoy the weather!

    Does anyone remember the price of a Gibson Les Paul VOS R8 in 2007?

    Thanks for the advice and info, Keefoman! I don't plan on insulting him, but he's priced too high and I wanted to know how low I could go. I expect to pay more than he did. If he can sell it for what he's asking, great! It just happens to be available, and I happen to be looking for a...

    Does anyone remember the price of a Gibson Les Paul VOS R8 in 2007?

    Thanks for all the prices, guys! The market sure has jumped. An employee at a local guitar shop told me that Gibson and Fender guitar prices really took off in the last 5 or 6 years. The 2007 price matters to me because I want to establish a baseline as to the guitar's worth. It's a used...

    Does anyone remember the price of a Gibson Les Paul VOS R8 in 2007?

    Thank you, Bassman! Ha! I was going to ask you this question in another thread, after I saw that you mentioned buying an R8 in 2007. Cheers!

    Does anyone remember the price of a Gibson Les Paul VOS R8 in 2007?

    Hi everyone! I'm curious if any of you remember what the price of a brand new, Gibson Les Paul VOS R8 was in 2007? I have a lead on one that is apparently in mint condition and I'm wondering what a fair price would be? FWIW, it's a plain top, lemon burst. BTW, I assume that it has a long...
