    Gibson SG HD Balance...Neck Heavy

    Yeah the auto tuners are more of a bells&whistles thing really. I can't use them manually to fine tune which is odd. But switching from straight E to DADGAD er whatever Kashmir tuning in seconds is cool. There are many presets and memory for your own if you wish. I think there is a Keith...

    Gibson SG HD Balance...Neck Heavy

    I thought of this idea but I also read luthier articles and youtubers that say this will give you problems in the long run as the neck bends up and out of center to the strings between the nut and the bridge. leads to issues like the high fretted notes running off the fret etc. The horn...

    Gibson SG HD Balance...Neck Heavy

    Put a strap on the neck button and then hang the other end of the strap on a hook. Just like the original Chinese balance scale the neck will dive toward the floor. Balance is based on the point of the fulcrum. The simplest versions consist of a metal beam from which hang two pans at equal...

    Gibson SG HD Balance...Neck Heavy

    moving the button from here to here or here Then maybe the body button to the right of center from placement in above image, should allow more weight below the button so that the body angles down and the neck up. We'll see. I do love the tones I can get.

    Gibson SG HD Balance...Neck Heavy

    weights in the body, replace auto tuners, wide suede leather strap, horn button, AND Imma test the idea of raising the placement of the body button leaving more weight below it and letting gravity rebalance. I'll use soft clamps to test the idea. Thanks for the ideas. I'll update later.

    Gibson SG HD Balance...Neck Heavy

    I have many guitars more than needed really. My brother decided to buy me a Gibson SG HD. I don't know if you guys know this model. It has some great features like the motorized auto tuner, the titanium frets, bridge and nut. Should never have to do a fret replace or even a polish job on...

    Is Old Music Killing New Music?

    Just need three or four quality players trying to make something happen live on stage, non scripted, full improvisation, to feel the animal inside you come out. It is so rare to see bands just go groove to groove following each others indications to sneak into another groove. Don't even need...

    Berenstain bears and Fruit of the loom logo

    It's all in the library, all you have to do is go there and look through old news paper on microphisch it may be on digital pdf files these days. I don't understand why people start these rumors. I guess next the earth is flat, the moon is a disc, the sun is a light bulb, Apollo 11 never...

    Berenstain bears and Fruit of the loom logo

    Ed never showed up to your door he just did the marketing using his image on the envelopes. Other people showed up to give your prize in a van. I think 60 minutes did a piece on it two maybe three decades ago

    Be truthful with me

    It is true that if you like the amp's tone with your guitar style then it doesn't matter. The only way we could assess the value of the purchase is by knowing what you paid for it. However if you have plenty of money and you can have it looked at by a professional for that hum and install a...

    Who here has HAD a “Plexi”…

    All Valid. I guess I would have to play one next to one of my 2204s to hear the differences whether striking or subtle. I used to practice 12-16 hours a day and got very accurate for many years, my process was to try to get into the mind of the player I was attempting, Page first, then Jimi...

    A & B or B & B

    @william vogel How can you have the bottom cab in phase and the top cab out of phase from the same OT two jack parallel output? e.g. two 16 ohm cabs, 1960A and 1960B opposite phase same OT on the 8 ohm tap. Is this not the same as connecting the two 8 ohm output wires (common to 8 ohm) to...

    Who here has HAD a “Plexi”…

    I guess I don't get it. Many of you want Plexi but augment it whether it's simply a jumper or running a set of 10 pedals in front and in some cases modify with an extra gain tube. Admittedly I've never played through one. Even something like a jumper is adding a bit more gain and tone...
