  1. About 5-6 years ago I was having serious back issues. As it got worse and worse I kept going from guitar to guitar. The ONLY reason I was able to keep playing was because I got a '97 Parker Fly Deluxe, weighing in at 4.5 pounds! The super thin neck gave me problems, but the guitar was great, sounded great, and the trem was up there with the best in the business. Eventually my back got a bit better, now I can pl;ay my SG again...that's about my weight limit if I want to stand...and I do. BUT I will never forget that My Parker absolutely saved me, I owe that company a debt and will never knock t
  2. They work great with my Headrush gigboard, without any amp of course. Sounds amazing in stereo...it's kind of addicting.
  3. Good luck with yours!!! I am almost 62, I developed a bad case about a year ago. The first time is a freaky experience, though mine was opposite yours. I woke up and thought I was extending all my fingers (it felt normal), but quickly I realized the third finger of my fretting hand was still bent down....then all of a sudden it shot up! What a weird feeling. I've had a lot of medical issues for a lot of years, so this was not even something I approached my Dr. about. I did find that In order to play without serious pain, I had to get rid of any guitars I had with thin necks, so my 2011 SG wit
  4. I have not had any issues with them over the years, my only issue is the shipping is never free, and seems a bit expensive at times.
  5. He played a Gold Top LP for awhile, before the Strat. He was the guy that really started the guitar up front type band. He was great for the time, and more influential than many folks understand.
  6. Great solo that fits the song perfectly (which is what a great solo in a song should do). Plus to me, using a clean sound is harder than using a highly distorted sound. GREAT SOLO.
  7. No problem, just continue to BOOGIE on down.
  8. She didn't get screwed in any way. Every musician including myself knows,we would sign anything EVEN IF WE TOTALLY understand what we are signing. Why? Because we want to be guitar slinging stars (well at least I did in the 70's). And then, when the artist/band gets huge, they break their contract and do what they want. It' always been that way. And now Taylor is calling the guy all kinds of names, i think she is breaking the law at this point.....she's trying to bully him while she's calling him a bully. She has a habit of doing that.
  9. I had a 2012 Gibson Les Paul Special Humbucker with a baked maple board, it looked great and played and sounded great. The guitar is only gone because I had back issues and needed lighter guitars.
  10. I had a 2012 Les Paul with a baked maple board. It looked good (dark) and felt great, and sounded great. I only sold the guitar because it ended up being too heavy when I started having back problems.
  11. I think it is a pretty nice looking guitar. The color and wood look fine, what i don't like are the knobs.
  12. Yeah...I get it....this is an old thread. The OP picture is an ebony board. I am looking at one myself, it's also a 95 with ebony board.
  13. Playing near 50 years (owned everything)....but I recently was looking for a hollow body. I came across a used Schecter (Korean) C1-EA. It is a great guitar! Has a piezo which really comes in handy for some recording...but the guitar comes without piezo's also. I took out the Duncan designed pickups and put in real Duncans (couldn't resist, got a smoking deal)....and the guitar plays and sounds as good as anything out there. Mine is an older model, they have changed the switching around on the newer models...I prefer the older switching.
  14. I love CAR so to me it is definitely hot...but CAR does indeed look better on some guitars. I recently saw a beautiful orange motorcycle, so I asked the owner about the color because it really stood out....It was CAO, candy apple orange....never heard of it (and it makes no sense since apples aren't orange)...but it was HOT HOT HOT. If I had to have an orange guitar, it would work nicely.
  15. If you want top dollar, then you can ask anything you want. If you actually want to sell locally on Craigslist....realistically the Hohner should be priced around $300 in my area...and you'd have a shot at actually selling it. You might get more on EBay or Reverb, but you will have fees to pay and have to deal with shipping, and then possibly scammer buyers or whatever. Good luck.
