  1. Well I don't do Reverb or E-bay low balling, but I do hit pawnshops religiously and I tend to really lowball when it comes time to dealing. I hadn't posted this pawnshop score I picked up a few weeks ago,but here's my latest. For the most part, I'm not really into Shred guitars with Kahler or Floyd Rose style equipped guitars, but I couldn't pass on this deal. I saw this '16 Ibanez Iron Label RGAIX6FMT guitar in it's case on the shelf. I didn't know what exactly it was at the time, but I knew it was a pretty good quality Ibanez. I put the model into my smart phone and
  2. I got amazing deals on all 3 of these guitars in 2020: '81 Martin 7-28 https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49699408807_e9a07d804f_b.jpg '00 Gibson Classic Premium Plus Les Paul https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49771543142_541a4e081a_b.jpg '88 Carvin DC127 https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49835845547_fd5718fab9_b.jpg
  3. I'm REALLY glad to hear this info. I was wondering when would be the right time to unload my MIIC+ Boogie amps. NOW I can sell these VINTAGE PRE-GIBSON Boogies and maybe make some good profit.
  4. I first saw Van Halen perform for the 1st time in my hometown on November 22, 1978. They opened for Black Sabbath. I already had been listening to the 1st album for a few months before this concert. Nothing had prepared me for the amazing energy that Eddie and the rest of the band had on stage. Up until THIS concert I'd NEVER EVER seen ANY guitar player jump and run onstage the entire set while play mind boggling leads. When Eddie performed Eruption, I though there had to be some type of guitar magic going on. I was also lucky enough that night to be about 2-3 row
  5. My '89 Gibson LP Standard has a 3 piece top and you can see the very light flame in the upper bass side of the top. I actually think it's and interesting top.
  6. Congrats Jake on a great score. I lover killer deals like this.
  7. Congrats iownit4. That's an amazing looking guitar. Gibson Classics are amazing, and a Goldtop is the icing on the cake. I too just joined the Classic family the past April, and I agree with the neck profile and the tone for days. I scored this amazing '00 Gibson Classic Amber Premium Plus
  8. This isn't a guitar, but my pawnshop '74 Jazz Bass I scored back in '08. This bass was lovingly played and has all the bruises and scars to prove it. The bass sounds amazing and is the reason this bass was heavily gigged. '74 Fender Jazz Bass:
  9. Wow HHB !!!!! You guys did an amazing job of that song. I REALLY liked it. My son has done a lot of recording at a local college at their Recording Technology Dept. A couple of years ago the professor of the R.T.D. was asked by the school to record a song with certain information in it, that they would use for an education seminar there at the college. My son sings the lead in the Pink Floyd cover. [MEDIA=youtube]QgRAlAQaVoE[/MEDIA]
  10. I've always thought the Brad was an amazing guitar player and was impressed he was able to fill in after Randy died. I always wanted to see NR in concert,but never got the change until I got to open for them in about 2007. I played an outdoor festival in Laredo Texas which had a bunch of bands playing all style of music. We took the 6:00 pm slot and NR went on after us. After we finished out show, we went back stage while the roadies set up NR's equipment. I got to meet BG and talk shop with him for about 15 minutes and got a pic with him. The guy was actually p
  11. I give you props NOBF, for the attempt at reducing your collection. Fortunately/Unfortunately, I live in a part of the country where they basically give awayquality used guitars away at the pawnshops in the area. I did a MAJOR purge 4 yrs. ago, and sold off 35+ guitars and basses. So for the last 4 yrs. I've hovered at around 50+ guitars and basses. Since my son plays guitar and is in to guitars like I am, I've decided to keep buying and selling guitars until I retire. At that time, we can evaluate which guitars are worth keeping in the collection. In 10 years, g
  12. I enjoy both their playing for different reasons. I kinda have a very small connection to both players. I have guitar picks from both guitarists when I got to see them locally. I found the Van Halen pic on the floor when the hall cleared out the night I saw them late 1978. Randy personally handed me the only guitar pick he gave out the whole night after the encore. I was in the front row right in of him, and I'm pretty sure he remembered meeting us earlier in the day. The Ozzy concert took place Feb. 21 1982, which was 26 days before he died on March 19 1982
  13. Thanks Gary. That was a crazy story about that Gibson LP. That guitar was most likely a lifer that you would have never ever sold. It's crazy how sometimes we made good decisions when we were young men, and later in life we realize it was the right one, and we're so grateful we did. In the case of your Goldtop, everything was out of your control, and there wasn't any decision you could have made to change the outcome at the time. A lot of you guys here have had some AMAZING guitars go through your hands, and at least were able to experience owning and playing them.
  14. Yes sir!! I'm pretty sure if he hadn't called me to offer the Fender Strat and Tele, I would have done the trade. Everything about the trade seemed too hurried and desperate on his part. I'm VERY happy he " Overplayed his Hand". ?
