  2. Got to play out today at Equus Run, a beautiful winery near Midway, KY. Beautiful late summer day, 70 F and sunny. Perfect time to break out the Studio Custom. Have three more outdoors jobs through Halloween and then I'm done until a vaccine, cure or Spring.

  4. We start with an idea for #0094. Then Mike makes a life sized sketch. A top is selected. And Mike works his magic. Pickups by @JGravelin. Photos by @Northfield - This guitar is way too reflective for me to capture!

  10. I didn’t buy this brand new, but I’ve had it since, at latest, 2002. It has been gigged and played a bunch, but well cared for. There are little superficial playwear scratches/swirls all over, but nothing through the finish or otherwise serious. It is currently equipped with graphite saddles, and the originals are in the case (OHSC included). It has been played about 10 minutes since I had the frets leveled by a really talented luthier, and it plays most excellently. $1200 shipped. no trades

  11. Thanks, these are the first two guitars that I made. I think I really need to change out those knobs.

  12. I don't have any 3 Monkeys amps, but keeping with the perfect combination for me theme... this pair is killing it. Amp is 4x6V6 with Ben's Blackbird circuit on ch1 and VOS circuit on ch2. I've had it for 14 years, can't be dethroned.

  13. The Paris Single Cut Background: Years ago, I sang in a rockabilly outfit. Since my real name had been taken by Dan Hicks (and his hot licks), I used my wife’s middle name and the band was called Danny Paris and the Shiner’s. Years later, many of my friends still call me Danny P. My wife kept her last name when we got married, so Paris has been our connecting name (even though I do go by Danny Hicks). This is where the abalone Paris came from on the TRC.

  14. Spalted Maple top. Some would say I ruined it by putting color on it. We have a new emoji for that: 🖕 (I wanted to use that on Shawn but he hasn't given me a reason.....yet.)

  16. These aren't Gibsons, but I have one with a pickguard and one without. Honestly, I don't even think about it when I switch between the two. I guess I like the look of both.

  17. This was a week ago Sunday on the back deck of the 4-3-2-1 Club. Famous Volcanoes have been turning our outdoor practice sessions into neighborhood performances this summer. We've even managed to learn some new songs in the process, apologizing to our friendly neighborhood fans in advance for playing songs we don't know yet. Two new covers include Rose Garden and Pictures of Matchstick Men. Too much fun, and it's good to play in front of people, for sure. Early in the year we were joking that this was going to be the Year of the Volcano because we had a monthly paying gig lined up at a local b

  20. Not a pickguard fan, my LP's always sounded "better" without because I was more happy and played them better. Like, 0.00121% better. No reason for one, relic your axe the old fashion way, by ya know, playing it... '08 LP Classic, full Faber install, low wind Wolfetone Dr V neck, Marshallhead bridge, 50's wiring, re-freted med-jumbos. Weighs in at about 8.2 pounds... And as you can see, I don't like the poker chips either; THAT'S really leaning out man, talk about getting flack!😉

  21. Had this for 25 years or so. I'm not a Strat guy but it sounds so good I kept it around. It has the checks/scuffs/small dings that are normal for it's age, and I'm having a hard time getting them to show up. I hate photographing black guitars! No funny business - it's all stock except the Strap Lock buttons and 5-way switch. The original buttons and 3-way switch will be included. The HSC is newer ('90s?) and excellent. It weighs 8.2 pounds by my shipping scale (pretty accurate) and it's acoustic voice is STFU. Frets are pretty decent (I've never done anything with them)

  26. True vintage vibe is in the pickguard!! The air moving over the pickguard as you pick gets translated to the pickups (works only when not potted!!) where the air is the taking a 180 degree turn that gets amplified along the wire (works only with the braided shield type!!), it then entices the pots which in turn deliver the mojo goods to the output socket (but only when that is held by a plastic retainer!). OR: I think a Les Paul just looks better with the pickguard!

  27. I guess we will never know until we check out the difference that a Brazilian Rosewood pickguard makes. Esp the tasteful tonal underpinnings resulting from the inclusion of sapwood. It, no doubt, causes the acoustic voice to bloom. All the more so if the sapwood is aligned on the treble side at the proper angle to the cutaway...😏 Lest there be any doubt, I AM joking........(Everyone KNOWS the greatest tone enhancement lies in replacing cheap plastic knobs with ones made of BRW!)

  31. GJ2 would almost have to go away. A big reason I never got interested in Friedman guitars is that, as far as I know and anyone ever indicated, they were built by the same guy at the same place with the same CNC as the GJ2s. The main differences were the headstock, the name, the finishes, and another $1,000. Why on earth would I pay that much money for a rose by any other name?

  32. Well, this definitely scratches several itches that I've had for a while. The gold top itch, as well as the "replacement for my thin-neck special" itch. The neck is FABULOUS. It's got a tiny a bit of Hameritis around the neck joint, but nothing major. There's also some binding pull away on the lower side, which is common. There's a tiny dent in the goldtop, but otherwise it's great. I also love the color that the binding has faded to. It does have some rust on the strap buttons, so it looks to have been in a moist environment at some time. Thankfully I have a HUGE supply of nickel Dunlop

  33. I was just listening to one of my favorite albums of all time: Rules by Supagroup. I remember what seems like a couple decades ago when the board was talking it up. Same thing with Godspeed the Shazam. Both incredible albums that I never would have heard without the HFC. This place doesn’t suck.

  37. I posted a while back about the upcoming, "Live in Youngstown", LP awaiting release. In the true spirit of overkill, Chrysalis done did again: UFO Box Set on IMWAN.COM Description Regarded by many as one of the finest live albums of all time, Strangers in The Night captured UFO at the peak of their powers as a band. The original double album was compiled from recordings made at six shows during in October 1978 on an American tour, which can only be described as a live greatest hits of the band's repertoire.This new 8CD box set includes all 6 complete original concerts for the first time

  38. So, I linked up to the "dark side" today. Reminds me of any other platform like my Headrush, the Helix I traded, and the Firehawk amp I have in mothballs. Lots of amps and effects. Everything set up to tweak until you realize it's morning. I abbreviated my time with the editing realm. I don't see myself recording any time soon and I really only need a clean, crunch and lead/solo tone that's mostly "Marshally". I can pretty much live with reverb and a nice delay. Honestly, the "possibilities" aren't really critical to me. But they are impressive. So, I won't be able to give you a
