  2. No. Anyone who says otherwise hasn't a clue. Every year had good ones, brilliant ones, and crap. Each guitar is an individual. Think of it as such, and you'll do fine. Just play a few to see which is best for you.
  3. Is there any particular era I should stay away from?

    I have a Marshall JCM 800 model 4104 ( 50watts 2x12 combo) that I bought new in 1983-1984. It has 6550 power tubes which I kept. No reverb, no channel switching. You plug in and play. I also scored some NOS RCA power tubes for it. It's the only Marshall I had ever owned, until I purchased a Marshall Class 5 1x10 Combo. Like JCM 800 I own, they were also made in the UK. There are many different versions of the JCM 800, including ones like yours with channel Switching, some with reverb and some ran 100 watts. Since I hauled my own gear, always, my JCM 800 is in killer shape, with no rips or scraped in the tolex. I did scratch the face plate near the 2 input jacks. This is not mine, but these are the amps. The same over and under High/ Low input jacks. If yo ever open one up they are a pretty simple build. Nothing special in quality, but some killer. The gain is not too crazy or compressed. This one is missing the bottom bracket for some reason and someone also put on casters on it. They also came with a cheap vinyl cover, that was not clean but more opaque. Mine didn't make it after 20 years, so I tossed it. The JCM 800's where not cheap, but a "good one" will fetch about 3 times the money that they cost new in the 80's. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Marshall Class 5 amps are also cool for recording. A bit darker than one might think. There the older version and the second revised version of those amps. If you ever come back to HC, I love talking about amps, guitars, music gear and music in general.

  7. Main Differences Between Les Paul Traditional vs Standard. The Les Paul traditional has a thicker neck profile, whereas the Standard has a slimmer neck profile. They have 50's and 50's tradition back for 10 years ago. I thing the 60's had push pull pots too, but don't quote me on that. They still make Les Pauls. $2699.00 https://www.gibson.com/en-US/Guitar/USA1R6524/Les-Paul-Standard-60s/Iced-Tea I'm sure this is nice too, if that's in your budget. https://www.gibson.com/en-US/Guitar/CUS48E666/1960-Les-Paul-Standard-Reissue/Iced-Tea-Burst

  9. Ok. Looking for a Gibson, Humbuckers. Standard? (What is a traditional Les Paul?)
  10. Yes but what Les Paul...? There are umpteen variants/reissues. And then there are the Epiphones and those variants. Not to mention the 'knock-offs'. Have you looked at Reverb.com? So let's narrow this down a bit: Price range? Gibson only? Model? [Custom, Standard, Studio....?] Pickup preference? P90- [likely not, based on musical preferences] Humbuckers...but which ones?
  11. Hello Everyone. I am looking to purchase a Les Paul, new or used. I am looking for a player, not necessarily a collector and something that will not break the bank. I like to play 70 and 80 rock and big into Nightwish and symphonic metal. Not stuck on a particular finish either but do like the cherry burst, lemon drop burst and iced tea burst. Thanks.

  14. IIRC, Digitech stopped supporting the GSP 7 in the 00's. You are asking about tech that is ~35 years old, and ~15 years out of customer support. I'm doubtful too many folks here can help you. You are unlikely to find anyone who can service that for less than the price of a used unit...I'm sorry to say.
  15. DOYLE DYKES - Random late night pickin' Google for “public domain / copyright” and be reminded that, “If a book, song, movie, or artwork is in the public domain, then it is not protected by intellectual property laws (copyright, trademark, or patent laws)—which means it's free for you to use without permission. ... As a general rule, most works enter the public domain because of old age.” Just thought of this when my finger-style guitar hero Doyle Dykes shared with fans a 'late night video' of him playing a song which “entered the public domain January 1, 2021" – HAS ANYBODY SEEN MY GAL. Doyle noted that the song was “composed by Ray Henderson” (one of the principal hit-song writers of the 1920s) and performs it here beautifully – on a “re-acquired” signature model Taylor steel string acoustic with as he says “dead strings.” But since those strings are Doyle Dykes signature model GHS strings, “they don't sound half bad!” Doyle performs it with a blend of styles -- his own and his mentors Chet Atkins and Merle Travis – reminiscent of stride-style piano in which this song was first played. As Wikipedia notes, "Has Anybody Seen My Girl? (Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue)" is an American popular song that achieved its greatest popularity in the 1920s. It is sometimes known as "Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue"; the 1925 Leo Feist, Inc. sheet music gives both titles. And as of January 1, 2021, the song has fallen into the public domain.” Credit for the most popular version of the song, though, is given to Ray Henderson for the music, and Sam M. Lewis and Joseph Widow Young for the lyrics. It was this version that was recorded by The California Ramblers in 1925. Lucille Ball performs this song in an episode of I Love Lucy, and also in the episode of The Lucy Show titled "Lucy's College Reunion", in both performances playing the ukulele. In 1984, it was used by the Walter Mondale 1984 presidential campaign to introduce vice-presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro (who was actually five feet, four inches).
