    What's the best tremolo guitar (other than a Strat, price not a factor)?

    If no one has mentioned it yet I would highly recommend one of the Supro reissues. It's bulky but IMHO it's way better than a Bigsby. It has a considerable amount of movement and even though it's not floating it can do the Brad Gillis warble if you tap the bar. I owned a Supro Sahara and ended...

    Supro guitars. Will we ever see them again?

    The Sahara is light and really fun to play. Great neck for my hands. I also have a Coronado II that is pretty heavy but I really do like the trem on it. I had a Westbury too that was also a nice guitar but has since moved on. I got all of them at sale prices though. I think the MSRP was off on...

    Supro guitars. Will we ever see them again?

    It was my understanding that he had started making pickups exclusively for Supro prior to the sale but that may be wrong

    Supro guitars. Will we ever see them again?

    I had no idea about all of this. I have a Supro Saturn that I dig but hope to eventually swap for a Black Magick. I’m mostly bummed because I need a trem arm for my Coronado and I wanted some pickups for a custom build.

    Supro guitars. Will we ever see them again?

    Absolutely! Maybe the Roadhouse guy will resurface or someone will fill that space.

    Supro guitars. Will we ever see them again?

    Since D'Angelico purchased the Supro brand it sadly feels like they are just going to focus on amps. I can't seem to find any reference to guitars anymore. Customer support said they would be back but seems weird that they would remove all reference to the previous models, even in the legacy...

    Is this Les Paul Jr legit or am I getting scammed (CL content)

    Well the ad doesn't say Gibson Les Paul. If I had a non fender strat I'd still call it a strat. I'm assuming it's not a Gibson but does have a Gibson logo. A lot of ebay auctions are this way. They don't show the headstock. Not sure Gibson is scanning local CL ads looking for fakes (although...

    Nostalgia strikes again! Fairly rare Ibanez incoming.

    If I had the money (and the storage) I'd do the same. I have a big soft spot for all the guitars i couldn't afford as a kid.

    Considering a Tele build show me yours.

    I've been interested in the Rosser stuff after seeing what the MJT stuff is going for lately. Did you paint it or was it pre-painted?

    Considering a Tele build show me yours.

    Great stuff. Keep 'em comin'!

    Considering a Tele build show me yours.

    I'm considering a Tele build and I'm looking for creative ideas, mods and colors. Leaning towards a rosewood neck but I like them all. Show me yours.

    Would this drive you mad?

    I honestly thought that was what he was talking about because I can't unsee that. Looks like Dracula about to strike. They actually have some cool shapes but that headstock is no go for me.

    Gibson trying to block Collings headstock trademark

    Either way Collings is making a better guitar than Gibson so not sure changing the headstock shape will change that.

    Why can't guitar pickups be plug and play?

    Is that Matt Pinfield

    Does anyone own just one guitar?

    I think most people that own one guitar don't play. It's the guitar they bought to learn how to play and never did.

    Les Paul connoisseurs: is this authentic?

    Dang! I'm not a fan of tops but that's nice.

    Les Paul connoisseurs: is this authentic?

    I know. I thought someone was being a smarta** like my posts but I'm guessing that's the sign of making it.

    Les Paul connoisseurs: is this authentic?

    Looks like it says "Chibson". I'm guessing it's the brand of nut or something.

    Best Gibson SG for ~$1000?

    I'd recommend the SG Classic if your into P90's. It's a sleeper.
