I'm after a vintage style Marshall 412 because I absolutely don't need it. :-)

We're such suckers for a bit of bling. I think it was a smart bit of marketing by the guy that first realised you could take something ordinary like a guitar case and cover it in paisley or whatever and we'd all want one.

I like the Bogner Tolex. I'd buy a Bogner just because they look cool... :oops:

Yeap. And I'd crank it once, wife, neighbours, dog will all tell me to shut the fuck up, and then I'll be back to the plexi models on the Axe FX through headphones. But at least I could stare at it and pretend it was making the noises in my ears...

Don't understand myself sometimes. I never get on with Humbuckers and I can't get comfortable with Les Pauls but occasionally, twice in fact, all that changes and I fall in lust. Both of those guitars were 57 Goldtops (AiRdAd's and Oleg's).

Bugger me if it hasn't happened again. Met this in the Albany Rockshop today.

Neck like a tree trunk; Glorious! Nicely ringy and an almost convincing finish. I loved everything about it except the price.

Can't understand why 57's seem to fit me but nothing else really does. :crazy:

57 Gold Tops are my favourite, I would take one over any other LP, they just look right to me 8)

Mate, there’s no scenario where I pay anything like that much for a guitar.
