    RIP, Les Paul...

    Long time no see...I thought I't stop by to see how sad everyone was and it's a bit surprising the thread hasn't started yet. So here it is: http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/Music/08/13/obit.les.paul/index.html?section=cnn_latest And I think they're finally playing together again up...

    Crazy Pet Stories

    Yes. We occasionally have "crazy road stories" threads here. So why not a pet one? I'm sure you all have lots of stories to share! (Especially you, guitarfarm. Please count all your animals in the farm in for this one!) ;) 1. Saturday I played at a charity event and came home at 4AM. It was...

    Any new musical gear? (for Jukebox)

    Hey, pics from Northwoods jam are great! I'm jealous since I couldn't make it across the ocean. But I'm glad to know everyone had a wonderful time! :D So I'm back to post my new gear pics for Jukebox. I ordered a 5-string viola that can cover the range of a violin. The first problem was that...

    Animal Lovers Thread (w/ pictures!)

    Yes, everytime I see pictures of Synchro's cats or bandstuff's goat babies...I feel the urge of starting a thread dedicated to them. So here I go. I have 2 dogs at the moment. Pudding: Ares: Pudding is....Well, a "mystery breed". Perhaps she got some Pomeranian or Cocker blood...

    More people own Gretsch than we think... :)

    A talk with my bandmates from last Sunday: Zee: That's what I mean. Like Dave Mustaine said, "You don't **** with my bandmates!" George: I wonder if that's the only similarity between Zee and Dave Mustaine... Josh: Have you ever been rejected by Metallica? "We don't accept Gretsch!" Zee...

    Buzz, buzz, buzz..... (How adjustable is Adjusto-matic?)

    A G5129 girl. Spent first 10 days with it and have been loving it. Except for it came with a little buzzing on the 5th string. I took it for a setup but it came with additional buzz on the 6th string. :( So it's been annoying a bit. About half an hour ago, I suddenly thought why don't I...

    First gig on G5129 / What kind of music everybody plays?

    Yes, the first official gig since I got G5129 ended short with some misfortunes. (My bandmates say it's a rule: someone gets a new gear and the next gig gets *ucked up in somehow mysterious but effective ways.) 4 guitar amps at the venue. Only one of them worked fine. (Of course our lead...

    Pickup installed on "fat fiddle"

    I recently decided to pick up my viola again after 15 years of (almost) total abandonment since my band is playing "Strawberry Fields Forever" and our guitarist got a crush on "the monster cello riff" as he calls it. So...I brought it over to practice 2 days ago. My bandmates liked it and...

    Became a Gretscher today (G5129)

    You might remember I posted about a week or so ago to ask your opinions about that 3-knobbed G5125. Well. I passed on that one after all. I had to change my plan of placing an order on G5129 since they asked me to pay 50% deposit. Man. I would have to have for 2 months until finally get it. A...

    G5125 with 3 knobs not 4?!

    Hi Y'all, I'm a wannabe Gretscher. Actually I just started to save up to buy G5129. Well, it was my original plan. Then today I saw a used guitar for sale on the web. G5125 for less than half the price for new G5129. I'm honestly shaken and tempted even though I really, really, really love...
