Lovely to see some of you chaps earlier today at the Haydock guitar show. Sorry for being so zonked out, I've a ridiculous head cold/chest infection double whammy so the drugs have made me really woozy and impossible to hold a conversation with! :( Bleurgh. Hopefully I'll be feeling much more human ...

You're confusing "best" with "most desirable" - which rare and antique instruments are. As a fellow over on the MR forums said recently - a Louis XIV-era desk works exactly the same as a modern one. It doesn't magically make your writing better, nor your wit more witty, nor your prose more prosaic; ...

Did the "Reborn Old" series have the number impressed? Not very likely. They probably stopped doing that with the start of Reborn Old: The last Reborn I've documented is 0007430 and the first Reborn Old I've documented is 0007503. The 0007503 doesn't have the model impressed in the fingerboard. I d...

Thanks folks :) I can't take credit for those shots - a good friend of mine took them for me. He's a genius when it comes to light; I'll pass on your compliment Marcus!

?700, and that's cutting me own throat!

FS: Tokai ES120 Semi, LSS112 LP Special, LS130Q SEB LP

SD Antiquities, original pickups included too. Hiscox hard case. http://rollmuck.com/images/guitars/02...

I really like the look of that plaintop, simple and elegant. Certainly not Gibsons intention to make a simple & elegant plaintop guitar, it was all about making the cheapest guitar possible...some of them have 5 piece bodies. Not sure what the "50's Tribute" means, the guitar has no body binding, n...

As I can't edit the thread: Comes with the original MK2 pickups (the pickups in there currently are a Rio Grande Crunchbox at the bridge and an Irongear Rolling Mill 2 at the neck, but these will be removed unless you want to pay for them - I also have a set of Gibson '57 classics and the matching b...

If your underwear isn't clean, then the likelihood is that your thread is already sticky.
