  1. Cool! I've never seen a Martin 12-string in person before. That is a NICE guitar! Enjoy it! Ben
  2. Congratulations! That is a good looking guitar! Enjoy it! Ben
  3. Congratulations! That is a good looking guitar. The color is AWESOME. Enjoy it!
  4. Congratulations!!! You picked up a winning pair!
  5. Greg, That is a tough question about which two. Hopefully I'll never have to decide! Here is how they are currently stored: Well, this is how most of them are stored. I need another rack!
  6. GAS strikes again! I found this one at a guitar auction in Casper, Wyoming. Here is my "new" 1997 BluesHawk: It has a Varitone circuit in it. None of my other Gibsons has a Varitone. It is the chicken-head knob It is smaller than a Les Paul, and my smallest semi-hollowbody. The guitar really SCREAMS! It doesn't have standard P-90s - it has "Blues" P-90s. The difference is that there is a dummy coil in the circuit. Wait, doesn't that make them humbuckers? It also has a 25 1/2" scale length and a string-through-body setup. Strange for Gibson. Another toy for me! Ben
  7. Congratulations!!! I really like that color. Ben
  8. Congratulations! Those are GREAT amps. I have the '65 Deluxe Reverb and the '68 Custom Princeton. They are wonderful sounding amps. Enjoy it!!! Ben
  9. I'm pretty sure that I won't be purchasing this Gibson. I would imagine it is going to sell in the $20,000 - $30,000 range. Ben
  10. Wow! That '52 is something else. AND it comes with an amp! Ben
  11. My wife wants to use them to decorate the house. Thanks!
  12. No, I'm of Danish and Norwegian descent. I do like the color however! I plan on it. Thanks!
  13. Well, I did it again! Here is my new Limited Release ES-330: Closeup of the body: Just a plain head stock: And the back I picked it up used but you wouldn't know it. Someone sold this to Guitar Center in Cincinnati, OH on Christmas Eve. They originally purchased it from Sweetwater because the checklist was still in the case. The only problem I found was that the nut slots were cut too low. I don't know if it came from the factory that way or the previous owner lowered them. I used the superglue/bone dust trick to raise the slots. I purchased a set of the nut files that Greg Voros recommends and re-cut them to the proper height. It plays like a dream now! Ben p.s. My daughter got a nice DSLR camera for Christmas so I borrowed it to take more professional looking pictures. If I could just get the creases out of my backdrop it may look like I know what I'm doing!
  14. Learn & Master was owned by another company that Steve originally worked with to produce the course. They kind of stopped caring about the message board and it was falling apart. Guitar Gathering is owned by Steve and so it is VERY WELL maintained. This is the place to be now! Ben
  15. Congratulations! Sometimes you can find really great used guitars. It looks like you succeeded! Ben
