  1. Congratulations!!! That looks like a winner. Enjoy it! Ben
  2. All of the live lessons are GREAT but this "triad" of lessons should be AWESOME! Ben
  3. Oooh. I like yours! It's a good lookin' guitar! I only play mine as often as it comes through the rotation. I practice with a different guitar every night. I just practiced with it the other night. I do like it a lot! I bought it when I was in Los Angeles on vacation. When I got it home and was cleaning the case, I found a pick inside. It was from a band called The Go-Lords. When I searched them on the internet, I found a picture of the guitarist in the band playing it! It has the distinction of being played by a REAL guitar player!
  4. Neil, Yes, I do! Thanks Barb!!!
  5. Well, I've tried to grab some of the lesser known models.
  6. Yeah, my music room is getting a little cramped! I don't have museum-quality guitars. I do love them, however!
  7. Neil reminded me on last Tuesday's guitar lesson that I bought a few more guitars that I haven't posted. I bought the first one in October but never got around to posting it. Here is the Mega-NGD thread! First up - 2008 Dark Fire. It is Gibson's 2nd Generation Robot guitar. This one wasn't working when I got it, but I'm pretty good with electronic equipment. It runs perfect now! The next one is a surprise find. My wife saw it sitting behind the counter and asked them to pull it out. There is almost nothing original on this guitar. It has even been refinished. Here is my 1976 SG Standard: The next Guitar was one that I was looking at when my wife spotted the SG. I decided that I really didn't need another guitar but she surprised me with it for Christmas. It's a 2019 Classic Lite: The last one is the biggest news of all! It's true - I've finally gone over to the Dark Side. Here is my new Limited Edition Fender American QMT Telecaster with the Pale Moon Ebony fingerboard: I'm hearing that they only made about 350 of this guitar. It was a Black Friday special. I guess I'm probably set with new guitars for a couple of months. 😛 Ben
  8. Cool! I've never seen a Martin 12-string in person before. That is a NICE guitar! Enjoy it! Ben
  9. Congratulations! That is a good looking guitar! Enjoy it! Ben
  10. Congratulations! That is a good looking guitar. The color is AWESOME. Enjoy it!
  11. Congratulations!!! You picked up a winning pair!
  12. 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!
  13. 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
  14. Congratulations!!! I really like that color. Ben
