Me playing my Les Paul traditional honey burst. A buddy and I entered a contest for the Detroit Tigers. It was called April in the D. They would play your song during tigers games on tv when they cut

In other Corona related news, I just arrived in NYC to help out a bit. If I’m not working, I’m stuck in the hotel, so I took the bass and a Vox headphone amp. Not the most exciting rig rundown, but wi

Well, at less than 25, it doesn't make me optimistic about finding one.
I just really don't like the bookmatched tops.  I mean, in general they can still be beautiful, but I would stare at that seam all day long.

You, Goredho, and myself all have 2019 Standards that we love. Small sample size, but Gibson seems to be moving in the right direction. 

Agreed! We should get to get together and touch head stocks or something

Thinking it might just sound badass as is....

My damn brother just sent me a text with a pic of him playing it at austin vintage guitars and saying it's the best guitar he's ever laid his hands on.

The problem is, he may just be saying that shit to get me to blow $2800 on a guitar I don't need.  We're close like that.

FUCK

If another guitar showed up for me a few weeks after that strat, my wife wife would kick the fuck out of my balls in her purse.

Shit, I just have a wife.  If I had a wife wife I'd think about ending it all.

if i ever sounded like that it would be on my McCarty

I was telling my wife I had finally named my prettiest guitar, and was naming it Rory after our futurebaby. She said "the blue one"? No dumbass, that is Trogdor.

Thanks, it's the shit.  Haven't got to play more than 10 minutes yet, work and shit, but I can tell it is a superb guitar.

You head faked me on that one. I thought you were buying the flame top 335 to match your LP. Nice psyche out.

Yeah, my brother talked about wanting to buy it, so I backed off, then someone bought it out from under him.

Like pretty girls, pretty guitars don't stay single long.  Snooze and you lose!

So point of interest.  The original '66 neck on this JM was once on the Oly White Warmoth JM/Strat body to its' right.  That combo just didn't ever really feel right.  Like literally, the combo felt awkward and there had to be  shim and the action was weird even though I tried to fix it a number of ways.  So I took the '66 neck off and put a Guitar Mill neck on that Warmoth body.  Now the Oly is a dream to play.  That left my '66 neck hanging around a long time.  I thought the problem was the neck itself.  Maybe a little too narrow, something off...I had resolved to sell it.  But I could never make myself part with it.

Well this GM body came up loaded on Reverb for a good price and I pulled the trigger.  I'm glad I never sold the neck.  The GM body with this vintage neck is a great match.  No shims needed, good resonance unplugged even, no sustain issues as commonly noted with JMs.  Just the right match.  So all the parts in these offset variations are good, but it goes to show that some combos do work and others don't.  I also used different techs on the Oly/66 neck vs. LPB/66 neck combos and that may've played into it as well.  Lesson learned.

‘61 CS Reissue.  Figured if I’m going to say goodbye to my balls, it needed to be for something pretty fucking good.

That is an all star lineup on your wall. Wow.

I’ve been thinking about dumping all my cheap guitars and condensing down to a lineup like that.
