  1. Regarding the pointiness of later Gibson USA Explorers, it's one become one of those things that once you see it, you can't unsee it. (like that damned FedEx arrow in the logo) Totally turned me off the Gibson Explorer after that. They all look 'wrong' to me anymore. Congrats! Great looking guitar.

    Gibson The Paul?

    Do any of you fellas recall seeing a version of The Paul with a red paint job? Same configuration with the pickup selector near the controls, open black pickups, and with a coat of paint? I don't recall if the headstock was unfinished with an embossed logo or if it had the normal black headstock face with the gold sticker Gibson logo. A friend in high school bought his Paul with the red paint job at the same place that I bought my SG in late '89. (our first guitars)
  3. I prefer Brad to Joe. Taking a two year break from playing guitar/music was kinda dumb, but God, I needed a break. Playing along with Van Halen I to get my chops back up is also kind of a reach these days. Much more so than when I was at the top of my game, which wasn't much. Gibson Explorers are shaped wrong. I cracked the back of the headstock of my '62 SG/Les Paul Junior recently, and I really hate myself for not double-checking the latches on the case before I picked up the case, only to watch it skitter across the bedroom floor. Not digging this new Failure album as much as I'd hoped. Recently got back on Facebook to run the dealership's FB page, and I really, REALLY regret that. I still like pink guitars. I think I'd like to have a brownface Deluxe one of these days. I gots da blooz.

  6. Dusted off my Korina Vector last night. That is a fine, fine guitar.
  7. Definitely the wrong thought! You certainly need more guitars. Well, thanks to a recent move & a surprise 20lb weight gain, I've only got three pairs of pants in the new house. So it's Guitars 6; pants 3. The upshot: I now have a sweet ass walk in closet that I can put a lot of my shit in.
  8. As I stood in my closet getting dressed this morning, I noticed I have more guitars in the closet than I have pants. I thought to myself, "I need more pants."
  9. Congrats! That's beautiful. You've got something to be very proud of there.

    Got something from Feynman III

    Mitch is a straight up good dude.
  11. Mitch you really went above & beyond. Just got mine today, arrived on my birthday even. Best B-day present ever. This little sucker even has a mini replica of a functional guitar stand! Mind = blowed. Hats off, good sir. Edit: what I really meant to say was, Thank you!
  12. WOW. That is VERY, VERY cool of you to do. I'm flubbergasted!

    I know F3nd3r is in charge and all....

    I'm such a sucker for 3 humbuckers, that the blue monstrosity above even appeals to me.
  14. Thank you, thank you. I'd like to thank the Academy.... Actually, the satisfaction of knowing that I could manage to go a full year with no new guitar purchases is a prize in itself. I think 1988 was the last year that I was able to do that. Congrats to all the winners! Self restraint is a thang, y'all.
