    Online guitar (or bass) configurators: post your designs for fun and/or science

    I love playing with the online guitar configurators. I thought a thread full of creative designs would be fun. Here's my first entry, from Balaguer. Espada in fiesta red with Bigsby and Lambertone Cremas.

    Someone recommend me a good kazoo and holder (seriously)

    My wife, son, and myself have formed an acoustic cover band. I’m on acoustic and lead vocals, my wife plays a solid body uke bass, and my son plays cajon. I think I’d like to add a kazoo for lead lines, solos, etc. Wood or metal kazoo? Will a modified harmonica holder work? I need ideas!

    NGD: Eastman E10OM

    I certainly didn’t need another acoustic. I have a well-worn Eastman AC522CE that has served me well for the last 10 years, but I’ve been drawn to the cool vintage vibe of the sunburst OM with the square headstock for quite some time. I had this in my Reverb watch list for a while, and couldn’t...

    Sold Amp’d by Well Hung 3” strap with Marshall grill-cloth

    Wide, nicely padded, well-made, and comfortable to wear. Only downside—the material is fairly stiff, and hard to adjust. This is in excellent condition. He’s asking $73 plus shipping on Reverb. I’m asking $60 shipped to CONUS. I’m having a hard time uploading pics from phone, but I’ll work...

    Concert tickets: my favorite Christmas gift this year!

    My wife and son got tickets for me! I guess he’s touring with an orchestra—should be fun! I’ve loved his stuff since getting his first album on vinyl when I was 8. Glad I’ll get to see this American treasure before he hangs it up for good! FB9CAA41-3F0A-4521-8D87-02C4197499F2 by Beakertwang...

    Sterling (EBMM) Albert Lee

    I have a thing for quirky guitar shapes, and I've always liked the Albert Lee, but I never really wanted to drop the cash for one. Today is the first I've seen of the Sterling Albert Lee. I've always been really pleased with the Sterling line. They seem to be well built, with decent...

    My friend says "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell...

    is objectively as good or better than "Billie Jean", and that Soft Cell didn't gain the popularity of Michael Jackson only because of Michael's financial backing. And he adamantly and unequivocally defended his position. Discuss.

    Introducing my son to Van Morrison's Moondance

    Traveling with my wife and 21-year-old son today, and we're listening to the complete album together. He's heard parts of it before, but never just listened straight through. Definitely a desert island album for me. "Into the Mystic" is a highlight for me; I consider it to be one of the most...

    Electronic kick drum stomp box?

    I do some small acoustic gigs, and also lead music at my church, where a drummer is available about half the time. At church, I pull the kick from our electronic set, but I'd like not to be tethered to one spot on the stage. I'm looking for an electronic stomp drum that I can either run through...

    A thought on pickup position for a single-pickup guitar.

    I have a nice neck just waiting for a body. Lots of ideas have been going through my head: jazzmaster, HSS strat, 2 P90's... But I was thinking a single pickup guitar would be cool to have, but sometimes bridge pickups aren't smooth enough when played clean, and neck pickups are too muddy when...

    Price check on a 3rd Power British Dream

    So I picked this up in trade, not sure if I wanted to keep it or sell/trade it. I let a friend try it out, and he already wants to know what I want for it. :D Here’s what I know: it’s a first version, has the AC30 and Marshall channels, with the “Orange Glow” mod done by 3P. Effects loop and...

    I don’t normally like _________, but I’ll make an exception for this guitar.

    There are features I usually don’t usually like about guitars, but once in a while, a certain guitar causes GAS, despite my usual preferences. For example: I don’t normally like pointy guitars, but I’ll make an exception for a Gibson Explorer, particularly in cherry. How about you?

    CITES and shipping a guitar through the eBay international shipping program

    I've got a guitar listed on eBay with a rosewood fretboard, manufactured in 2015. I received a message from someone in the UK to ship it. Answers seem to be all over the place, from "I wouldn't risk it" to "the international shipping program is eBay's responsibility, and they will take care of...

    Last time I ship a guitar with FedEx!

    I almost always purchase my shipping labels online, and drop the package off at a local parcel store. Twice recently, FedEx has sent me a notice of a rate change, and billed me an additional amount of close to $10. According to FedEx customer service, this is because the rate given before...

    70's CMI/Gibson SG System amp?

    This was offered to me as a potential trade, along with a guitar that I'm interested in. It's a 50W amp with a 15" speaker. He says it's one of 30 made. I really have no use for an amp, especially of this size, so it would be a flipper. I'm always hesitant to go after lower-priced vintage...

    Ngdx2!! Eastman, EBMM

    Got these two in a trade today. Cool guitars, and they look great on my wall! Eastman T486B I love my Eastman acoustic, and I had been gassing for one of these for a while. My first 335-type. Not yet accustomed to the feel on a strap, but it looks great, is well built, and sounds killer...

    Can a Bigsby B7 go on a Jazzmaster/offset body?

    I've got a sweet neck waiting for a body, and I'd like to go with an offset. I really dig a Bigsby, so I know a B5 would work. Is there enough space behind the bridge for a B7? I just think the long tail Bigsby would look cool on an offset.

    Sold Really cool Supro prototype (built by Sweetwood Guitars)

    This is a one-of-a-kind prototype built by Glenn Sweetwood for the relaunch of Supro guitars. If you're familiar with Glenn's instruments, you know they're fantastic. This is NOT one of the new import line. There's a spec sheet in the pics, but here are a few highlights: Mahogany body Unique...
