  1. Nice bass! Price probably about right. That's what a good US Spector or Sadowsky sells for.
  2. Some of the most boring finishes ever applied to a Standard too. Something cool would be worth 3k+.
  3. So sorry to hear it's much worse than guitar collecting. At least guitar doesn't go obsolete - not yet anyway. I still have my 90s midi monster 50 spaces of rack gear and 7-8 keyboards all for the most part now worthless, obsolete or dead. I just started going thru it all testing and replacing dead internal batteries ect getting ready for fire sale. I threw an Akai S3200XL sampler in the trash. That hurt it was like $1500 sampler when I bought it. I wanna dump all this stuff because I've got the modular bug.
  4. I call dibs on "fish killer" https://www.julienslive.com/m/lot-details/index/catalog/312/lot/122230?url=%2Fm%2Fview-auctions%2Fcatalog%2Fid%2F312%3Fpage%3D19
  5. A friend has a 79 Sunburst it's definitely indian rosewood. I used to own a Earthen Maple Studio custom with a braz board that had bright red streaks in it. It was stump wood it was interesting to look at but not pretty - if that makes sense. Tonally, that guitar didn't work for me at all. Braz hype for sure I never cared for solid braz neck PRSi but I own a wildwood MB strat which is one of the greatest stratocasters I've ever played or heard. But I'm giving more credit to Todd Krause than the laminated fingerboard. Who knows, YMMV.
  6. Nice posts from JB. I enjoyed his reply on page 84 when a TGPer takes him to tasks over internet posts. We've all been there. https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/my-echopark-guitars-nightmare.2042711/page-84
  7. Earlier this month the new owners of Gibson gave back the rights to the Oberheim name to Tom Oberheim. No licensing, no deal just here ya go. This deal looks fine to me they are Echopark guitars very expensive distressed replicas. Not outsourced production they aren't Gibson guitars. Take a breath and repeat after me: they aren't Gibson guitars. How this "ends badly" for Gibson is beyond me. Echopark can build with korina which Gibson no longer uses so there's that. Any issues with the build or CS is on Echopark. Some people will make it about Gibson, naturally.
  8. My guess is Hamer installed the Kahler You could put one of those fixed versions in it's place. I'm thinking about doing that to my BC RIch.
  9. Great point. At a former job the boss showed up with 2 sledgehammers. Our crew destroyed 10s of thousands of dollars in control valves. Because of the law, employees we were forbidden to scrap out the metal but they didn't care if our friends retrieved it later that night(which we did). The guitars are useless without the electronics and have no value. I figured people would get a kick out of this video. The firebird x was so hated. Instead outrage, and claims of bad PR and bad management. Same shit different day.
  10. The statement Gibson released leads me to believe the electronics didn't meet ROHS. What are the restricted materials mandated under RoHS?The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), and four different phthalates (DEHP, BBP, BBP, DIBP). That's just the basic standard. Without the documentation there's no ROHS. It doesn't mean the guitars contain hazardous substances. You can't sell or give them away. You can't give them to schools or poor people. They are worth more as tax write off than it would to pay people to recycle parts like bridges & tuners.
  11. I think I've seen ruthenium on a Shishkov somewhere just didn't know where to order it. So thank you very much!
  12. At least...but for this project I think I'm going to go with all ruthenium hardware
  13. Yeah but I need like 10 of those 😎
  14. Only thing I like about Gotoh is the trem arm holder. Which block and nut do you use on your calis?
