1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Etta Mae is her name, named by her previous owner Steve Hudson a TGP'r who passed away more than three years ago.

    Traded cables for WCR pickups, had her re-worked top to bottom by Indoor Storm's Guitar tech about two years ago.

    Have not played her in ahwile, and man she just sounds killer straight into my Egnater Mod 50....

    I am going to play her more....just spent more than an hour straight and the tones were just righteous....

    I understand, I had a '99 that was very hard to not play.
    Gibson put out some good ones in the late 90s IMO.

    They sound better & better the more they are played.

    Yes. I miss Steve a lot. He and I played in a band together and I was with him in the hospital when he died.

    I tell his story everytime I play this guitar live as a tribute to him...
