Hi all, I hope you're well. Been a while since I posted on TGP despite being a member for over a decade!
Thought you might get a kick out of a lockdown scratch build I've almost finished... I have a ton of pics from raw wood to almost complete, but here's a couple of recent progress shots. If...
Really pleased with how these turned out.
Really happy with the way these turned out. Just thought I'd share :beer
To be delivered before noon tomorrow - a Gibson Memphis ES-335 Dot Reissue Plain Satin Cherry. Worlds longest model name? I'm aware there was a model without the neck binding, but mine looks like this which is remarkably similar to the Warren Haynes model:
Looks pretty cool, wondered if anyone had tried them?
AMT Stonehead SH-50-4, amplifire for electric guitars, 50 watt, 4 channels with tube simulation, CH1/2 (clean/chrunch, switchable) with separate thomann controls for gain, level and high, controls for bass and mid, CH3/4...
Cool studio film - Keith keeps messing around, looks like they were having a blast:
As an aside, the soon-to-be Mrs Novak custom made me a shirt like Keiths for my birthday last year:
So, a local pawn shop has a sunburst Telecaster '62 Custom. At the heel of the neck is a 'Made in Japan' decal, and the neckplate is stamped FENDER - no visible serial number to be seen on the headstock, neck plate or bridge. They have it advertised as an '85 model, I wanted to double check that...
Hi - I've been offered a Whammy IV in a PX deal; I'm aware of its features but not sure I'd have ause for it... could anybody help with some common applications or none-too-obscure songs I could check out which feature it? As an aside, the guy wants to swap it for an old Line 6 Flextone II...
Ok, not actually CL - but a UK equivalent. Am heading to check it out after work (assuming he still has it, he said he'd let me know if its gone by then).
I assume its SS but wanted to ask if anyone knew which model it was? I guess for £50 it's worth it as a piece of furniture anyway...
Heya. Bit of a stranger to this area of the forum but as the soon to be Mrs Novak is working today I did the rounds of the pawn / guitar shops. In the last pawn shop there was the following:
1) an AC50 head - 60's as advertised. It was up for £500 (not sure if they'll deal) but said it...
Ordered on Saturday; it crossed the Irish sea last night and arrived today:
Crappy shots I know; in my defence its 23:30 and dark here! Will get some better ones over the weekend.
Quick rundown: Greco Licenced by Zemaitis, MIJ. 1/4'' flame maple...
Just ordered this - my guitars are spread across 3 different locations at the moment (we moved countries 1.5 years back so some are in storage - and we're moving again this summer). Haven't got anything here LP-ish; I tried out the 2012 Gibsons from the £600 70's tributes to £2700 Customs and...
OK, this isn't quite finished yet - I'm waiting on a new Wilkinson bridge and I plan to lose the middle pickup but just got sent some pics of the progress so far so thought I'd share :)
I already have this:
Which was built about 4 years ago... I've played about 300 gigs with it...
I posted here yesterday about a local ad for a ''70's Telecaster'' at a very low price.... the description in the ad was obviously cut-and-paste from Fenders marketing for the recent 70's reissues.. but the blurry pics showed what appeared to be a standard tele with 2 added mini humbuckers -...
Heya - I'm going to look at what appears to be an early 70's standard tele advertised locally at what seems to be a great price. It has, however, undergone a few mods and I wondered what the general feeling was regarding impact on value.
Black body (can't tell if refin by the pics)...
Picked this up from my local Craiglist equivalent - the seller told me it had been sitting in his closet for 20 years! Got a fitted 'Made in Canda' hardcase for it too....
Its a Hohner L 59 T (for trem). It has the scratchplate, trem bar and allen keys too. Anyone...
