    Looks like Gibson re thought the Standard and gave it some of the more popular features it probably should've had for a few years, without much or a price bump Body Wood: Chambered mahogany Top wood: Plain maple Neck Joint: Set-in Neck Wood: Mahogany Fretboard: Rosewood Plek'd on Gibson...

    How many of you guys use a Preamp and Power amp instead of just using a combo or head. Do you feel there are any advantages to this setup? I am always interested in alternative ideas...

    I'm intrested in a Gibson type guitar, Les Paul single or double cut away. I don't however want to spend the money on a Gibson. I don't want to spend more that 500.00. How's the Artist series? What about other brands? Thanks

    You are looking at a truly one of a kind Gibson Les Paul R7. This guitar is very very unique & if you read on you'll find out why...... I purchased this guitar brand new in 2001, and it looked like a brand new Les Paul...as it should. A while after receiving the guitar I decided to upgrade the...

    I'm dying to get an Artist, specifically a '78 2619 to '82 AR-300. I was thinking maybe of holding out for one of the new RE's, but with a 3 grand list price I don't think that will be an option for me. So, who out there has an Artist lying around we could get some pics of? :D These guitars...

    I know a few people around here are into Les Pauls. Anyone care to discuss them? Don't get me wrong, I love Jems/UV's as much as anyone, but I think I have my fair share of em, and I have been gassing for a good LP for some time now. Let's start out with your LP's please post pics and stories...

    So we all have our favorite axes, I'm an Ibanez guy, through and through. Other people can only make magic on a Gibson, or a Fender, or the Parker Fly, PRS, etc... How did you discover the instrument that you consider to be your one and only? For me, it was years of cruddy guitars, which I...

    Guys, One of the things I enjoy most about the festive season is the excuse to dust off my copies of "Merry Axemas" volumes 1 and 2. (my wife's favourite is "The First Noel" by Eric Johnson whereas I prefer "Sleigh Ride" by Stu Hamm). I doubt there'll be a volume 3 anytime soon so I thought...

    Can you nail down the best tone you ever heard to the specific song, I can: John Petrucci on A Change of Seasons playing Achillies Last Stand during the solo. It's the best to me. What was he using at this time? Pickups, guitar amps? Anyone know? What kind of pickup could I use to achieve this...

    Lately I've been paying alot of attention to tone, and mostly in Rock guitar. I would really like to see some players you guys enjoy tone wise. I'm gonna list some, and I gotta say, the guy I HATE the most is Brad Gillis, worst guitar player ever, but anyway, here is my List of best tone in...

    I don't read a lot of guitar magazines, and mostly because there aren't many available in my area, but I do pick up Guitar World occasionally (lately every other month or so if there's something that interests me). Anyway one thing that I've been noticing the last few months is whether its in...

    Just sharing a new friend, picked up a '90 DY on the bay. Was listed as in player condition, however this is in really decent shape considering and mostly needs cleaning. The neck is real dirty, the expected NJFC, and one chip on the top horn. Other than that there are not many scratches and...

    I know, I know, Satch, Vai, Malmsteen, Gilbert, blah blah blah blah blah, they all bring the same bag, sometimes cool tunes with mildly impressive licks... I'm not saying I can play them, but I am saying everytime I go to the guitar store there are at least a couple people that can. I wanna...

    Hi all, Apologies if this has been discussed before but I haven't found it searching around the forum... I have an epiphone les paul black beauty and am looking to turn it into a major heavy metal guitar to compliment the more all-purpose sound of my Ibanez. At the moment I just have the stock...
