    I'd like to hear impressions of the Bad Bone and the Topanga at NAMM. Links to any video (other than the one duet on youtube where you can barely hear the topanga) helpful.

    I played several Topangas 2 mahogany and an ash body too.

    I think they're excellent, a real home run for LSL. The ash body was, of course much brighter and spankier, but both types sounded and played great. Super job on the pickups.

    I liked everything about them.

    I was also really impressed with a standard 2 pickup T style - is that an A-Bone? - it was excellent.

    Then there was a 3 pickup T style w/ a Tele neck pickup in the neck AND middle positions & a more traditional bridge pickup - and it was excellent too.

    It helped that I was listening to them through Billy Yates AMAZING sounding Red Jones amp at the LSL booth - here's a link to Billy's great amps:http://www.redjonesamplification.com/

    Hat's off to everybody at LSL - great sounding and great playing guitars.

    Thanks, Dana O.

    Does anyone know the estimated street price of the 2 humbucker and 1 hb & 1 T-bone bridge Bad Bones?

    I am not normally a humbucker guy, but the demo made the pickups sound less compressed than most. I don't really know if it would be good to go with two or one and one?

    I saw a different thread and realized I also have a 50th coming up! But, I suspect a new LsL is out of the question. There is always hoping for a used T-Bone and I can put my own hb in the neck.

    Thanks Dana...truth is...I wish those Topangas sucked:p

    Reality is I need another guitar like a hole in the head but I want one and can't decide between Mahogony or Ash:facepalm

    Off to do some research...

    not need vs want...want always wins

    I think there might be either a link on LsL's site, or, some videos on youtube LsL put up that more clearly identify the amps so you can search for the guy's site. I looked at it once but can't recall the name now; anyway they look very cool and sound great in the clips. Can't recall the price point, but it wasn't cheap.
