    Fender Jim Root Jazzmaster CAN do worship music !!!

    I got my Jim Root out from the pawnshop I put it on lay away about 3 weeks ago. My son came over to visit it and checked out the JR. He said they were going to do a pretty heavy sounding worship song, and he said the JR would probably be the best for that particular song. Since my son...

    Where'd You Guys Get Your Cases Nowadays?

    Every guitar I buy from a pawnshop will come with a case whether it had one or not. I tell the store that I REALLY need to protect the guitar, and I really don't want to buy a new case. I tell them that the price of me having to buy a case for the guitar effects my decision in buying the...

    Where'd You Guys Get Your Cases Nowadays?

    The majority of my guitars come from area pawnshops. I buy so many guitars from the area shops that when I need one, they'll usually sell me ANY hardshell case for $20 or less.

    last 'new' band you discovered ??

    I'm a 61 yr. old "Classic Rocker" at heart, but I'm always open to ANY new music that might inspire me in some way. During my daily sales calls I listen to Sirius XM, and I'll listen to about 12 different stations daily. These include different Classic stations, 40's music, several metal...

    Which guitar would you pair with a Tele?

    70's/80's Original Gibson RD - Artist,Custom, Standard Club

    I haven't put it on a scale,but it's not the 12-13 lbs. that I hear people say they weigh. Mine is like a 9-10 lb Gibson LP. It's still heavy, but not unbearable.

    70's/80's Original Gibson RD - Artist,Custom, Standard Club

    I became the proud owner of an original '77 Gibson Walnut RD Custom I'd wanted one of these very unique and acquired taste shaped guitars for many years. They're hard to come by, and if you do find on in very good shape, are very expensive. Here's some pics of my '77 Gibson Walnut RD Custom:

    Guitar Price$ Going UP, UP, UP - Opinions Wanted

    I live in my own "Private Idaho" , and haven't ever felt like prices were crazy high, or the days of the "Steals" were over. While prices have fluctuated over the last 20+ years, my finding deals on good quality used guitars has stayed about the same. For some reason, the internet hasn't hurt...

    Unique Vintage guitar Score - '77 Gibson Walnut RD Custom

    I just found out that DG used the Gibson RD Standard as his main recording guitar for their '97 album "The Colour and the Shape". The RD Standard doesn't have any of the Moog circuitry,and therefore doesn't have access the the Super sparkly clean tones as the RD Custom or Artist models. I...

    Unique Vintage guitar Score - '77 Gibson Walnut RD Custom

    Thanks for showing me this video. I've never seen that video of Wang Chung playing that song live. He's playing a Gibson RD Artist with a Maple neck and body and ebony fretboard. WOW, did you hear how bright the chords sounded when he was playing them? That cut through the band mix with no...

    Unique Vintage guitar Score - '77 Gibson Walnut RD Custom

    I finally got to put the guitar through it's paces and explore all the tones available in this guitar. ALL the active tones are unusable to me and I can't see anyway I could use these "SUPER BRIGHT" hissy tones on stage or in the studio. Without activating the active boost or active bass or...

    Unique Vintage guitar Score - '77 Gibson Walnut RD Custom

    Go Class of '77 !!!! I'm really going to have to research how hard it'd be to remove all the guts of the guitar without damaging anything. If I could to that, and safely store the Moog circuitry where it could be reinstalled later without any issues, that's the route I want to go. Big bell...

    Unique Vintage guitar Score - '77 Gibson Walnut RD Custom

    Hahahahah!! She saw me across the street at the park sitting on the bench with the "Case Queen". To be honest, she was a little jealous of the attention the "Case Queen" was getting. :D

    Unique Vintage guitar Score - '77 Gibson Walnut RD Custom

    Thanks Peegoo. This guitar would be 1000% more usable if I ripped out the Moog circuit and installed a quality set of humbuckers and wiring harness in its place. So my dilemma is, do I tear out the Moog circuitry and install proper electronics, or keep this guitar with its still operable...

    This guitar is 44 yrs. old and was made the year I graduated high school. It sure looks like it's been a case queen for almost all of it's 44 yrs. it's been around. The nasty Moog circuitry even still operates properly. Haven't had a chance to really play it,but will do so once it's been set...

    Scored my 1st USA Fender Signature guitar !!!

    Hahahaha Don't you have to have a popular Youtube channel and be an authority on anything guitar related? The best I could do would be infamous, and I'm not sure that'd be worthy of a Sig guitar. :D
