I recently purchased a used 5128 with Dynasonics. This thing is amazing. It has its own character- a bit different than my 5420 with TV Jones Classics.
I cannot find much info about the pickups. What are they exactly? Where are they made? Who makes them? Anyone have any info?
Interval work is OK for what it is, but I find it less practical than studying actual songs.
There is a rather small set of chord progressions that a huge number of songs are based on. There are melodic patterns that repeat themselves everywhere.
Granted it isn’t ear training per se, but it...
Now I read that you can die from a brain-eating bacteria caused by garden slugs if you drink out of a hose.
It is a miracle any of us survived.
When I played HS football- are drinking system was a garden hose strung out to the practice field.
I have TV Jones classics in mine- couldn’t be happier- done in one- no money lost in endless upgrades. OK - I bought it used this way. But a few years ago I passed on a used stock 5420- because of the pickups. I sold a Cabronita because of the stock pickups- and an upgrade would cost more than...
Of all the Norlin era complaints, that would be well down the list. I owned a Norlin-era Gibson. Only reason I sold it was it was worth so much. Not sure what you mean by ‘modern Gibson’ - if it includes Norlins, but my Gibsons (built this century) are as nice as any guitars you’ll find for the...
Sell it as is?
I’ve owned 8 Fenders- probably owned 20 guitars in total- most bought used with no warranty- and never had a ‘warranty issue’ (manufacturing defect) with any.
Assuming there is a crack now, how is that a manufacturing defect?
A better photo:
I am really liking this thing. My only gripe is that the neck could be fatter. The TV Jones have an amazing tone, and the playability of this is fantastic. And it is the loudest, gawdiest looking guitar imaginable-- and I love that sort of stuff. I have a tangerine...

I sold a hollow body with a floating PU, then bought a used Cabronita with filtertron wannabes. That guitar was dead and lifeless- no matter what I did to it. I also unloaded a Strat and a super strat with a...
My three Gibsons: two from 2013, one from 2011. All bought used, mint— all are keepers. Quality is great on all of them. I’ve owned Asian guitars with great quality, but they just don’t excite me. I find Fenders often ship with rough frets— I have two Teles and a Jaguar.
You can find quality...
