Re: Return of the Gibbons shocker thread!

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2024/feb/22/guitar-maker-gibson-opens-store-off-london-oxford-street Grumpy old man post ahead. Everyone knows this store will only be a cost. Every Gibson that sells through a "proper" music shop will be subsidising their ego driven folly of big retai...

Re: Gibson Falcon amps

I quite like things that aren't perfect, so I'm going to go against the grain, and say "yeap, I totally would".

Re: The Gibson Les Paul Model thread

Here’s mine, 2017 traditional in heritage cherry burst. Was trying to find an arty pose for it like y’all do, but gave up. Bought this last year from that Hart fella who has 1001 guitars and wanted to get under a 1000 I think. Alerted to it via our own trademe madness thread, where everyone was deri...

Re: NGD Pelham SG special

Thanks, yeah had a wee look and see that mine does tilt that slight amount. I’ve always been surprised by how well it intonates, so I guess it’s okay. Although that might be more to do with the loose tolerances of my ears! Agreed the filing stands out, I’d put mine in the Gibson Shocker thread, it’s...

Re: NGD Pelham SG special

Removing tape after fret polishing You can see the fretboard has nice grain to it. One negative is the slightly rough factory job on the binding between each fret/nib. alot of file marks. Does anyone bother with this? I guess a careful razor blade scraping would sort it out. https://imgur.com/pbKhA...

Aroused. How clean do you set your amps?
Vox is pretty clean, Marshall is a pretty dirty, I like bipolar stereo sounds.

Re: How to connect FM3 to Audio interface, DAW

I had my axefx 3 going spdif into the back of the clarett, which works fine standalone, but as soon as I open logic it just ceases to work. Buggered if I can figure out why. I too have a Mac though, so just gone back to an aggregate device, seems to work that way.
