  1. So millionaire's weekend just went by (pay day), so I treated myself to one of the new PRS 24 custom SE guitars. It's my first PRS and although I was drawn to trying it out because of the colour I was amazed by how good it felt and sounded, it's very similar to my Gibson Les Paul but weighs less and has better upper neck access. It sustains forever and pinched harmonics sound killer. I'm 100% a born again PRS fanboy 😆
  2. Thanks, it really is. The picture doesn't do it justice, I got the cherry burst because it was cheaper. I'm not usually a fan of cherry burst but this is very dark around the edges.
  3. I recently got myself a 50's Epiphone Les Paul from the "inspired by Gibson" range they came out with last year. I wanted a Les Paul with a tremolo but not on my Gibson so I thought I'd give this a try. I put a Deusenberg trem on it and am really happy with the results, this isn't quite Gibson but it is an amazing guitar by any standards and I almost love it as much as my Gibson. So here's my very late NGD post🙂
  4. I've decided,in order to get my whammy bar fix I'd just get a Duesenberg trem to put on my Epiphone 50s standard. No drilling and no scars if I change my mind. Anybody considering a Bigsby on any stop bar type bridge, I can't recommend this highly enough as an alternative.
  5. Hey guys, I hope you're all keeping well. I recently had to sell a couple of guitars, and one of my cheaper ones I was offered an Epiphone Blueshawk to trade. It's worth more so I thought I'd go for it, and as I've managed to get myself back on track financially I'm considering keeping it. Could anybody recommend a Bigsby or similar bridge that would go well on this? I recently fitted a Bigsby on a Les Paul for one of my guitar students (I felt like I was committing vandalism at the time!) and the end result was actually really cool and now I fancy one😆
  6. I've recently started lurking around every now and then after taking quite some years away.
  7. I don't know, I'm really not sure if I'll ever need another guitar apart from my bc rich Mockingbird (just because it has a Floyd Rose, when I feel like wammy barring). This one looks amazing plus it has coil split and reverse phase push pull pots. I'm happy😎
  8. I think they're the old retro design, don't quote me on that though. They look really classy imo
  9. I don't watch tv but made an effort for GOT, and really enjoyed it. But really, I know there's some amazing craftsmanship that's gone into these guitars but seriously... this seems a bit tacky to me.
  10. Thank you. I really took a dislike to Gibson over the last few years but lately I started looking at the newer models out of curiosity. I was so impressed, I sort of accidentally decided I had to have this. It was advertised as ex demo/b stock at a shop about 50 miles away from me, the case has a scuff on it but I saw the pictures and just had to have a look. It's really beautiful, the case did its job (and gave me a big discount) and the guitar is perfect, not a single thing about it I would change. 10 out of 10, I'm convinced Gibson are back on track again.
  11. So I went out yesterday and treated myself to this 2019 LP classic, and I'm absolutely in love with it. I've often preferred a plain top over flame and this one plays and sounds purely amazing! I've barely put her down since yesterday and my fingers are worn out, but it's soo worth it 😁 [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","data-attachmentid":32527515}[/ATTACH][ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","data-attachmentid":32527516}[/ATTACH][ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","data-attachmentid":32527517}[/ATTACH]
  12. I thought I'd treat myself to a new amp, and I never thought I would be tempted by a solid state amp but this really changed my mind! A couple of years ago I got the code 25 for practicing at home and was really blown away by it, and after resisting temptation ever since I've finally got the 100watt half stack for live use. This thing sounds amazing, to me it's 99% there with the Marshall classics at a fraction of the cost (and weight, I'm really pleased for the sake of my back )
  13. So I found this on eBay for £100 including hard case, new but damaged during import. It's a plus pro, and after a bit of tlc it's an awesome guitar despite a small scar on the back of the neck which I've since tidied up. I'll put up more recent pictures soon. Just thought I'd show her off!
  14. I just love this guitar, I could only top it with the SL model or perhaps one of their old classic Mockingbirds. Much more eye catching than the millions of LP's and Strats or Teles you see on stage every night in any music venue.
