    What's the "B" stand for?

    Looks like the nut slot was cut with an excavator.

    Gibson files for bankruptcy

    Regarding JB, I propose the following before HFC Parliament: replace the word “legendary” with “noteworthy” and move on.
  4. I nominate the Aircraft Carrier Standard
  5. I was lucky enough to buy my “grail” guitar with the help of 0054 here on the board. My ‘64 SG Jr. Wanted an SG Jr since I was a kid. Used ones were plentiful back then in Bernie’s pawn shop in Dayton, Ohio and they were inexpensive. I wanted a pre-‘65 one because sometime in ‘65 Gibson narrowed the nut. Also wanted one without the trem. The planets aligned and I scored one with Rodi’s help last year. Not a grail guitar but I’d like to get another 50’s ES 225T. Goofy trapeze tailpiece and all. I bought one for 100 bucks with my paper route money when I was a kid. Not a rock guitar but I’d like to have another one. People are asking way too much for them now. Other than that, I’m happy with what I have.
  6. Great guitar, great price. I love my ‘64. GLWTS
  7. Kind of a crappy video but this guy can play... Mr. Spanky and the Hipthrusters
  8. 2014 G&L USA Legacy, gorgeous trans blue over swamp ash. Has G&L's "scraped binding" effect which was an upcharge. Granite-free. I posted this last year and pulled it, but this time I going to let it go. Not getting the play time it deserves. I'm the original owner. No chips or dings, no mods or repairs. Minty clean. Pretty much "as-new". Trem bar, COA, all case candy and OHSC (G&G case) included. Edited to add weight: 8 pounds 2.9 oz. My bottom line is $850.00 shipped anywhere in the lower 48 states. I paid $1250 for it new. Happy to take PP gift if you know me or add fees. Money order would be fine as well. Sorry, no international shipping due to CITES. All in all a VERY nice example of a USA Legacy.
  9. Hmmmmmm.... I turn 60 next week. I don’t feel a day over 59 though. The Orca would be a great birthday present from me to me. I feel weak...

    Aarrrrrrggggghhh! My dream Standard.
  11. Smaller venues for me. I’m an old fart. The Fraze Pavilion in Kettering, Ohio remains one of my favorites. Don’t live there anymore but will fly in for the right artist. Here, the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville is awesome. Built in 1927. Also love the St. Augustine Amphitheater. Saw Jeff Beck there a couple of years ago.
  12. Two favorites, both acquired with the help of or directly from an HFC'r. electric: My '64 SG Jr., vetted and shipped by 0054. Thanks again, Rodi! I was looking for a pre-'65 for years. All original with the exception of the pick guard and one tuner button. No breaks or repairs. Love it. acoustic: My Taylor 612 purchased from Tom Terrific. I play this one daily. I may need an exception for this one because I believe Tom custom ordered it back in the day. A real sweetheart of a guitar and great for finger picking. You meet the nicest people on the HFC forum!
  13. I’m not a luthier. I respectfully submit that you should check if your frets are level when evaluating buzzing issues. I bought this handy tool from LMI years ago. Also I think it’s wise to check for loose fret ends by pushing on them before leveling.
