    Gibson Les Paul Music Rising U2

    Anyone know the spec on these? Apparently a run of 300. I assume they're a spruced up standard. There's one for sale downunder (Tasmania) and they're asking $3500 US. Any thoughts?

    New year giggle...

    This made me chuckle... http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/lismore-heights/guitars-amps/genuine-1962-gibson-les-paul-sg/1097431870 100% for positivity. I suppose the 'PAF' (raised eyebrows) might be the jewel in the crown. Only in Australia.

    My 335 is off to the Doc's

    My once basket case '60 dot neck 335 is off to the doc's to get this mess sorted out. This was the only thing that I didn't put right on the guitar when I bought it. It was playing good and sounded great so I left it alone. The flaking nitro has got really bad over the past 3-4 years. Never been...

    Been eyeing a couple of these 2007 Gibson Custom Shop G0 1960 Reissue Les Paul's in darkburst. I believe they were a limited Guitar Centre run. Any owners out there or have owned in the past? Are the necks the regular shallow profile for an R0? Any help would be appreciated. Cheers! :salude

    'Pilot' scarce video- Ian Bairnson with plexi Marshall (?) 1976

    Rummaging around youtube as you do, I came across this live clip from 1976 of Scottish band 'Pilot'. I could be wrong but Ian Bairnson seems to be making all the right noises with a small logo Marshall through a period Orange cab. His lead break kicks in at about 1:10...

    Price of a new R9 in Australia

    Popped into a well known music store in Australia today. I had to sit down when I read the price tags. 10,000+ Aussie dollars for a bog standard looking new R9 and over $11,000for a darkburst! WTF! There is something definitely wrong there.

    Rosewood neck. To paint or not to paint? That is the question.

    :ghost: Looking for opinions/best practice. I have a old 80's solid rosewood Schecter Strat neck that is still in the virgin wood. It came from the "Obe" collection. It's all strung up and feeling great to play. Superb bit of timber. I'm not a sweaty kinda guy so the wood is still...
