    Johnny B / Rajin Cajun for sale

    I saw on social media Joe replying to a comment why he's selling some of his bursts and he replied that apartments are expensive. Another post seems to suggest he's bought an apartment In New York where he was originally renting. He may still be buying the explorer who knows but I got the...

    1957 GT p-90 Opinions wanted

    It's a cool guitar and im sure sounds great but its way overpriced IMO. That's getting closed to 57/58 Goldtop money. In fact I played a clean 56 over here in the UK a few weeks back which is alot cheaper.

    NGD 52 / 57 Conversion

    HI From the UK, Thought I'd post a pic of my newly acquired conversion. I've owned a couple of great LP's, Juniors and special's but this is my first 50's LP Standard.

    Build A Burst

    Yeah I recently got a build a burst, Really nice guitar. It feels very old and has faded really nice now. I always wanted mine to look like a road dog so it's got some strong relicing going on and it's ageing well on its own. I swapped out the Wizz's for a pair of OTPG pickups that I tracked...

    50's soapbar p90's fit

    I have a matching pair of 56 soapbox p90's that came out of a standard in my spare pile. Been thinking about putting them into a guitar but would most likely be an R4 or R6? Will these p90's fit in a modern reissue? Thanks
