    Gibson Generation series

    I played an acoustic with a sound hole in the same place once -- maybe a Breedlove? It was an effective monitor. Personally, it would just increase my chances of losing my pick.

    New guy…old guitar

    Yup. One solid heavy chunk. I never actually weighed it, but it felt like a LP custom. Gorgeous paint job. Me likee!

    New guy…old guitar

    Love both of yours! And Guildedagain, that's amazing that you have all that case candy! Unfortunately, I don't have mine anymore. :C( I had to sell it during some rough, post-recession days years ago. It was my main gigging and workhorse axe for years. Here are some pics. Classic natural...

    I'm Just A Lucky So And So

    Your top trio looks like one of several I would imagine as my top three too, ruedi. I would definitely have a 90s Black Beauty and an olympic white strat with a mint green pickguard. A Nightingale would round out the trio, but I would still want to find a way to fit my T-100D, CE-100D, and a...

    New guy…old guitar

    Great acquisition and a beautiful restoration job! I also bought some saddles from that German seller, and it also took 4 months for my set to arrive. Lol! 3bolt79/3bolt73 -- Are you referring to a Fender Strat? If so, mine would have been a 3bolt76. Loved that heavy beast.

    any Phil X fans?

    Ah. I can see that. I'm also subscribed. He does tend to go off sometimes. It surprised me how accepting he is sometimes of some newer music, but he is definitely opinionated about certain aspects. I find myself agreeing with him about some of these things, too. I also like his "What Makes...

    any Phil X fans?

    Also love Phil X! When you get past the initial rocker dude persona he exudes, he's a truly competent and professional player and chops monster. I'm curious to know what it is about Rick Beato that irritates you guys? Is it his over-exuberant enthusiasm in his vids? Honestly, he always...

    On the naming of things

    I second Cynthia's opinion. It seems much clearer this way. It also gives each individual credit where credit is due. For instance, when I get Hans'd, it's a very different experience from getting Ralf'd. We've all experienced this. I did not know this. Should it be added to our list?

    NGD: vintage Kay and Harmony hollowbodies

    Awesome acquisitions! I've always had a fondness for Kay Speed Demons. I'm sure you may know that there are a bunch of other brands from that era that offered essentially the same guitar -- Truetone, Airline, Silvertone, et al. My favorite variation has always been the the configuration like...

    NGD X350

    Very nice! I really like the red version, and I love ebony fretboards. Enjoy playing that beauty.

    On the naming of things

    Agreed! This is excellent and necessary stuff. So to address another commonly recurring case that deserves an LTG-specific term, what should we call it when a TRC is mounted upside down? Has the TRC been over-easied? Wrong-side upped? Capsized? Un-Guilded? Suggestions?

    Bubble Wrap is Bad for Lacquer Guitars

    Ah -- all you needed to say is that you post on The Gear Page. Lol. That's enough to get you slammed with hits. :) So true.

    Bubble Wrap is Bad for Lacquer Guitars

    Holy crap! In the example you show GAD, I bet the package experienced temperature and/or humidity changes. I'm also willing to bet that the guitar was sitting packed for an extended period of time for that chemical reaction to have occurred. I've been lucky enough never to have experienced that...

    Possible 74 fender twin reverb

    I was lucky to score an original Reverend Alltone 1250 pretty cheap for my blackfaced '76 SF Deluxe Reverb, and I'm really happy with it. After being discontinued by Reverend, they've been resurrected again and are made by WGS to the original Naylor specs. There's a 100 watt version too. Worth...

    Possible 74 fender twin reverb

    I actually agree, but they're probably better than the stock Fender Oxfords. I'd go with JBLs or EVs. Have fun!

    Possible 74 fender twin reverb

    All hail the mighty Twin! Nice that it has a flight case with wheels and Celestion V30s. You need to find a nice abandoned warehouse where you can turn it all the way up and rock it to its full potential.

    1960 T100B-DP

    Nice way to make an entrance to the forum. Such a beautiful blonde! My Hoboken Guilds tended to have a lighter construction and deep resonance like yours. I once had a really clean '59 T-100D that also had super low frets, and I had it refretted without guilt. It sounded played incredible...

    Possible 74 fender twin reverb

    Those old Twins are lovely beasts. I used to gig a '73 with a pair of JBL E-120s. However, I hated huffing that thing up and down stairs -- geez! Tons of heavenly headroom and beautiful Fender cleans, though. I guess it also depends on what kind of music you're playing and venue size. My '76...

    Steve Rockwell from Austin in the house?

    Maybe even the receipt costs money?

    Carl Kress L-5

    I'm a huge fan of this era of jazz guitar music, and I love Joe Venuti and Eddie Lang and all the small combos that yielded the early Benny Goodman stuff, Django, Jack Teagarden, etc. So cool. Jonathan Stout is a great player and musical historian and really does this guitar justice. He's a got...
