    Pickups for SRV strat?

    I don't know if you know this or not, but your house is crooked. Someone with the Don Mare "Josies" needs to upload a few clips of it doing SRV.

    Zion Guitar Technology - show me what you got! PART TWO!!!

    I ordered a Zion several years ago and, due to a string of very bad luck, never received it. Obviously, it takes quite awhile to build one of those beautiful guitars. I ordered a Ninety, and I was absolutely salivating as I waited for it. At some point during the finishing process (when they...

    Which pickups for a LP Standard?

    I have Burstbuckers in mine. I'm pretty sure that's the standard. I think mine is an '03? Can't remember. I'm leaning toward the Lollar Moore set. I am curious about the Sheptones, though, because they seem to be getting quite a few recommendations. Like someone else said, comparing...

    Komet 19 on order for November!

    How does the "Saturation" knob work? I'm guessing that's a Master?

    Which pickups for a LP Standard?

    No, it sucks! I'm extremely OCD, and I have to research absolutely everything until I'm 100% sure I'm picking the perfect product. Honest to God, I don't even have the spare change lying around right now to buy pickups and I'm already having a nervous breakdown. Is there a better website than...

    Which pickups for a LP Standard?

    Good God, there are too many options. There are 1,000 pickup companies, and every one of those companies has at least one set that looks like something I would like. Fralin Humbuckers (lower output) Lollar "Peter Green Style" Imperial Pickups (I love Gary Moore) WCR Green/Moores, WCR...

    Which pickups for a LP Standard?

    I bought a Les Paul in 2003, and I've grown to hate the thing. I went so far as to set it up for slide (and then left it in the case, because I never play slide). I've decided, however, to give it a second chance. Maybe it's the Burstbuckers I hate so much. I play mostly '60s-'70s rock...

    We're all officially nuts...

    If you were embezzling money, the hunt for the right amp would be much simpler.

    That is one crazy (and awesome) looking guitar.

    Bill Chapin Relief Fund Instructions

    The CT22 is great, but I haven't really touched my electrics for months. I've been playing nothing but classical as of late. This thread is actually pretty scary. I'm willing to bet that Mr. Chapin didn't wake up in the morning thinking, "Gee, wonder if my house will explode today?" Freaky.

    Bill Chapin Relief Fund Instructions

    Threads like these really help to restore my faith in humanity. Good job, people. I'm in the Southeast, so I have absolutely no idea what happened. That damage looks quite extensive, though... all I know so far is: Telephone company digging, hit something, kaboom. Am I missing anything?

    Taylor 310 vs. Larrivee D-03

    I have no played any of the mahogany ones. I have a D-03R and a DV-09. They're both fantastic guitars!

    Taylor 310 vs. Larrivee D-03

    Larrivee. I've tried a few Taylors, and they didn't do too much for me. I own a D-03R that is simply phenomenal!

    I ordered my guitar yesterday.

    Honestly, it came down to value/age/etc... I've heard alot of people tell me that buying a new acoustic/classical is kind of risky, because a guitars voice will change alot over time. Not only that, but not many new guitars hold/appreciate in value. The Galabert and this one both sounded...

    I ordered my guitar yesterday.

    Basically the name/phone number/location of the luthier.

    I ordered my guitar yesterday.

    Well, it arrived... I'm smitten! Played a solid 2.5 hours yesterday (that's ALOT for me). Unfortunately, interference was run by my friends, and supper with my family interrupted... I hope to get in a good 3-4 hours today. I love it! Very clear, great note definition, full bass, etc... etc...

    I ordered my guitar yesterday.

    This is (believe it or not) my first classical. I've always played classical on my Larrivee acoustic (which is definitely NOT how it's supposed to be played). This should be a pretty serious change... I'm EXTREMELY excited. My one knock on steel-string guitars is that I can only play them...

    This is a longshot, but has anyone played these builders?

    Riff - May I send you an email? The guy from CGS sent me 4 clips of the guitars that I requested... I'm curious to get the opinion of someone who has played a lot of them. EDIT: I'll need your email address.

    This is a longshot, but has anyone played these builders?

    Yeah, I need to get something fairly quickly. The way it was going to work was I was going to buy that '98 Green, put my name on the list for one of his new guitars, then sell the '98 when mine was finished. However, I'd rather just get something now... and I'd rather it was something that I...

    Man, this just keeps getting more and more difficult. :(

    This is a longshot, but has anyone played these builders?

    Yeah, I'm thinking about it very seriously. He wants $3,500 without a polish fix, I think... that's just for a fretjob.

    This is a longshot, but has anyone played these builders?

    Just an addendum, I have emailed back and forth with Aaron Green a few times. He has offered me a guitar he built in '98 for $3500. The deal is that I need a classical NOW, and his waiting list is 1.5 years. I told him I would consider buying something cheaper and going ahead and putting my...

    Out of sheer curiosity, what is that Contreras at DreamGuitars worth?

    This is a longshot, but has anyone played these builders?

    I have been to all of those websites. You posted a list like that for me a while ago, and I wrote them all down and visited them several times.
