    The ULTIMATE upgrade.

    This is so true..... Many of the touring pros playing arenas invest in expensive Bradshaw switching units and rack gear. For these touring pros it's folly to think a little tone cap or volume pot is going to have any meaningful affect on the guitar sound. The trend lately is for no big...

    Scrutinizing Bonamassa's 58 Flying Vs (Trash Bag & Amos content)

    Pickups sound different? So what is the difference between a '58 vintage PAF and an early-'60s, nickel-cover Pat. # humbucking pickup? :oops: The shorter 2.25" AlNiCo 5 magnet is the only spec I can think of....oh and the pat no sticker. The PE, 42 AWG magnet wire is the same, the nickel...

    Scrutinizing Bonamassa's 58 Flying Vs (Trash Bag & Amos content)

    Joe and Norm might consider this verification test ...........and maybe one of the better methods to authenticate the mystery 1963 Korina Flying V......Joe B. should do a side-by-side playing comparison test against the authentic 1958 Flying V's. If the mystery V is authentic then it should...

    The Collection: Mike Campbell

    So where did you acquire this knowledge of what Mike cares about? Are you his friend? In the Collection video, Mike appears to be very knowledgable about vintage guitars.... and with one or two exceptions, the specific model years of the guitars in his collection. As "King Loudness" states...

    The Collection: Mike Campbell

    Outstanding "Collection" video ....Mike is a class act and a living rock legend. Mike has amassed a very cool guitar collection over the years. However, his vintage Les Paul goldtop doesn't appear to be a 1968 model Les Paul goldtop which featured an ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge. It actually...

    Joe Walsh with Jimmy Pages number one burst before he sold it to him. Pictures.

    Agree. The efficient JBL speakers will sound and/or react differently in an open-back Fender combo compared to a closed-back Fender. Is it possible Joe Walsh removed the back from his Fender 4 x 12" cab to smooth out the sound?

    1967 Gibson factory video surfaced

    A revealing window into the past......particularly the reference to Gibson's "tone-wood" sources and suppliers during the early to mid 20th century. Sadly those days are no more.

    Joe Walsh with Jimmy Pages number one burst before he sold it to him. Pictures.

    In the first photo of Joe Walsh playing on stage it appears he's running his Marshall head through a 4 X 12" Fender cabinet loaded with JBLs. Perhaps influenced by Duane Allman's use of JBLs? Note the camera flash reflecting off the JBL aluminum dust covers.

    Physical Graffiti Feb 24

    Led Zeppelin's live shows in the U.S., in '72, '73, and '75 were phenomenal. The 3 concerts I attended in Baltimore and Largo, MD as I recall they played for nearly 3 - 1/2 hours!

    The Collection: Rick Nielsen

    Well....any way you slice it.....presenting Rick's "1958 split-headstock Explorer" as an authentic rare guitar, is a slap in the face, and mocks the owners who have acquired, at considerable expense, genuine vintage 1958 Explorers.

    The Collection: Rick Nielsen

    Go back and watch the video again.......around 37:49 in the video, Mark inspects the serial number of the alleged '58 split headstock Explorer. He can clearly be heard reading off the serial number; he distinctly says the following: "8 1957....with the split-V headstock". It's clear as day.

    The Collection: Rick Nielsen

    See my post # 104 for strong evidence refuting the authenticity of Rick's alleged '58 split-headstock Explorer, S/N 8 1957. That Serial Number belongs to a sunburst 1958 Les Paul Junior.
