    Dickie Bett's SG with upper bout selector switch?

    I can't tell if it's a Gibson, there's a clamp on tuner in the way. It does have the flower pot. Looks like the walnut or faded to brown cherry finish. Selector switch on the upper bout like a Les Paul, two pickups and the four control knobs. I've got to find the picture again and host it...

    Custom Shop Les Paul Customs

    How far back do you have to go to get a LP Custom with an ebony board? When did they start with the weight relieved body? I played one yesterday at GC, first one I've seen at that store since it opened back in the '90s. Had it not been so noisy (honestly, what was I thinking? GC on a...

    Should I bother asking?

    Lester's passing today made me reminisce about my pilgrimage to the Iridium Jazz Club, and getting the control cavity backplate of my R8 autographed. I had it personalized and dated on the inside face, so it would not get worn off. Due to family situations and financial circumstances, I sold...

    Met a Gibson rep at my local GC today.

    got to look at a mahogany body blank for a production Les Paul Standard, and a carved maple top. I think the body was a 3 piece. It was pretty cool to hold in my hands that which has inspired so many threads and posts on numerous guitar forums and bulletin boards around the internet. I was...

    Stumbled upon this old pic

    was looking at some old gear pics, found this one Left to right: '03 R7, '03 R8, '99 R9, '03 R0. All the '03s were brazilian. Before things went crazy. All were casualties of my lay-off later that year. Hard to believe it has been almost 5 years already.

    Congrats to Boston College mens hockey

    2008 Beanpot Champions. Exciting game against Harvard, who rallied back from 5-3 deficit with 9 minutes to play, clung to the tie against a furious Eagles onslaught, forcing overtime. Eagles were able to make some great plays and got the puck in the net first. One of the best college hockey...

    Looking for suggestions for a small PA

    I'm thinking about a small PA, to make it possible to sing over an amplified electric guitar, for my 10' x 10' music room. It doesn't have to have a lot of power, and the smaller the better. I have plenty of mics to choose from. I was thinking about a Crate Power Block, I have a small mixer...

    Cooper Minis (or is it BMW?)

    As much as I do not want to buy another car for many years to come, I've had it with gas prices and might consider a radically smaller car. What kind of mileage do those new Minis get? I get ~ 24 mpg in my subaru, and that is just not enough anymore. And no, I will not consider a Renault (or...

    Grounded for Life

    I had the television on yesterday for background at the house where I'm housesitting. I leave it running as part of my security strategy. I almost never watch tv during the day. By chance, there was an episode of 'Grounded for Life' on. Great show, so of course it got cancelled. I keep...

    It's been fun

    I've dabbled in historic les pauls going on 4 years now, learned more about guitars, amps, playing, music and the biz around it all, than I have in the previous 20 or so. I guess some of that is thanks to the internet, but its mostly the people who frequent it. I've met some cool people, and...
