    The Duane Allman LP Goldtop's buyer is still (publicly) unknown AFAIK.

    This is a (the!) Guild forum so I list my Guilds. They've made a lot of great instruments, some of which I own. Because they're great instruments. The name on the headstock is incidental. No more to...

    Mainly electric, but acoustic as well. What I'm referring to is what's gonna happen when the last of the boomer demographic exits the guitar buying market.

    When I play a guitar I don't play a brand…I play that specific guitar. If it's a good 'un then it just is, regardless of the name on the headstock. IMO brand fixation is among the dumber aspects of...

    I like Sun-era Elvis along with some of the early RCA stuff and the sitdown part of the '68 Christmas special where he borrows Scotty Moore's guitar.

    I'm sure most folks here are familiar with the story of Fender execs inspecting the first shipment of guitars from Fender Japan (Fuji-gen Gakki at the time) in mid-1982 and being embarrassed 'cuz...

    I think GAD has it pegged. You get the quality you're willing to pay for.

    When I made the trade for my Gretsch Chet Atkins I had four really nice examples to choose from. (This was at Elderly,...

    This is the kinda thing I do a lot too. I especially like having my pinkie free to add variations to chords and chord-based progressions. I veer more jazz-ish than blues, though. Major & minor 7ths,...

    I think they kinda knew Abbey Road was their swansong…but they also didn't know for sure. There was a band meeting either shortly before or after the album came out, during which Macca suggested...

    A compressor will lengthen the sustain portion of your notes. There are some newer ones on the market that let you dial in a blend of uneffected and compressed signal, which lets you preserve note...

    I also suspect there's an agenda at work behind putting the video on YT. I'm not sure, though, whose agenda it is. The answer likely depends on why the video was made in the first place.

    That's a good YT channel overall. I started watching 'cuz Keith, the guy who runs it, really gets small amps.

    I go through periods of accumulating a bunch of musical stuff, then doing many-for-one...

    CCR had a unique sound for a late '60s rock & roll band, and John Fogerty went on a run where he could do no wrong as a songwriter. As a kid, in between long stretches of my preferred Motown music I...

    I agree the videos aren't a good look for Gibson. I also think some folks are looking for reasons to outrage in public. The company is a convenient target, which is partly its own fault. They should...

    I can totally understand Gibson's new owners & management looking at all this piled up stuff they want no part of, and particularly don't want in any way representing what their plans for the company...

    Absurdly talented guy. IMO if he'd been born 20 years earlier he would've been one of the defining musicians & songwriters of the late '60s–70s. Rock & roll, R&B, funk…all of it.

    An uncle of mine worked at Fender for awhile in the mid/late 1950s. He said they'd pile up necks that failed QC (pre trussrod installation) and when they filled up a bin or rack or whatever they'd...

    The NS LB-1 bridge pickup uses 41 gauge (I think) wire but is likely wound with around the same number of turns as the neck p'up (using 42 gauge wire) and so reads lower on the ohmmeter. The thicker...
