    Western Electric Survey for USA-made Tubes

    I would say they are not manufactured in the U.K. yet because their website says “each time you purchase one of our electron tubes it brings us closer to manufacturing right here in the U.K.”

    SG Menace.

    I have never seen one in person but I would definitely want one. The black hardware and brass knuckle inlay are so cool.

    Suggestions, experiences with adding Vibrato Bridge?

    Thank you so much. I’ve owned it for probably 30 years and it’s tattooed on my forearm from my elbow to my wrist. It weighs 7 pounds 9 ounces. The diamond inlays are gold from age. I wore the finish off the body where my forearm rests. I attended a master guitar class before a Dweezil Zappa...

    Suggestions, experiences with adding Vibrato Bridge?

    I have a Kahler on my 1976 SG. I love the fine tuners. It’s a very smooth tremolo. C788E803-AD28-4E2E-B331-40157946F139 by Bryan Tollywood, on Flickr

    And yet another fretboard wood...warning katalox content

    Forget about fretboard wear!! I'd be more concerned with the wear on your poor fingertips...maybe some cream before bed with a pair of rubber gloves over them so they soak up all the moisture?

    I'm not a 'Les Paul Guy..."

    Hello Col, I clicked on the link for the Les Paul / Marshall package...How dare you mock the price when Sweetwater was good enough to knock $8333.01 off of the list price. hahaha - just kidding....$21,000 + is way too much.

    Best Wishes to SG Lou

    Lou, if you are in good spirits, I'll admit that I found this post very funny! :naughty: Seriously, coming from a harwood floor installer, my thoughts are with you. I have a deep fear of power tools. I hope you mend soon! Bryan

    I've never played a Gibson baked maple fretboard, but I do have an Ernie Ball Music Man Axis with a roasted maple neck. It is hands down the nicest neck I've ever played...

    Pictures of our full Gear

    Right now, I'm playing the Gibson head through the Marshall bottom cabinet. The Gibson speaker cab is half open-backed, and I prefer the sound of a closed-back speaker cab. No pedals, just pushing the amp into a heavy creamy distortion. I play in a cover band, so I use three SGs for different...

    A message for unsupportive parents

    My parents were pretty supportive, but here's the important part of my story: I am the parent now. I am very supportive of my sons' playing. One plays bass and one plays guitar. After three years of lessons with mediocre instruments, they each got a sweet Ernie Ball Music Man for xmas last year...

    SG vs LP

    I agree with this statement. I used to have two of each, but I traded one of my L.P.s for my lavaburst SG. No regrets! :naughty:
