    Gibson files for bankruptcy

    And they are adding Gibson users KebMo and Larry Carlton as advisors to their board......What a line up.....Larry, Mo and Curleigh! http://www.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/ES/Gibson-Memphis/Larry-Carlton-ES-335/Features.aspx http://www.gibson.com/Products/Acoustic-Instruments/Small-Body/Gibson-Acoustic/Keb-Mo-Bluesmaster.aspx
  2. A lot of us grew up with Tom Peterson on late night TV..... He was always full of "cheap tricks".

    I May Owe Jol An Apology

    Rename that guitar the Emerald Ass Boner.
  6. Can't tell you how many nights I used one of those for a "casual" with nothing more than my favorite juice box in front of it. Never let me down. And seldom, if ever, did it not sound as good as anything else in the room.
  7. At least the video does not feature her with her clones "singing" harmony. "You may think that I'm a screamer, but I'm not the only one".......
  8. I second that. Not too hard on the eyes either.......
  9. It was not a BAND I wanted to be in with the two of them.......
  10. Interesting to have TWO (of the 30 piece run) on the market at the same time and both still available a couple weeks later. The Triple Threat is (IMO) one of the most desirable guitars Hamer ever made. The only thing I would change would be to upgrade the stock pickups which (I think) are not quite up to the standards of the rest of the guitar.
  11. It is not right on point, but the use of a softwood on a hollow or chambered body is a great combination. And, IMO, even more so with a korina body/neck. The custom order "Ultimate" DuoTone I had for a long time, with aged cedar top over korina was wonderful. A few more recent takes with redwood over a chambered and very light weight body (korina or black limba, but mahogany works well too) are my favorites. I DO love the look and sound of the traditional maple over mahogany. But I do think the softer woods add a lot to the tone. There is a reason the world's "best" archtops tend to have softwood tops, at least if their primary focus is tone rather than looks. I have had Newports with maple tops and others with spruce. The one I kept has spruce. That is my recommendation.

    Not directly related, but I DO love black limba......Nice to know it is not in short supply!

    I have (and have had) guitars that most would pick as "better". However, since finding it six years ago, this is THE ONE that makes me a better player. Strange as it may sound, sometimes a guitar can figure out exactly what you want to do BEFORE you do. This is that one. For me.
