I'd ask her if she's checked the weather, because she's getting 7 inches tonight.

A sci - fi movie about Arnie selling Earnie Ball (here is that ball reference again) guitars, with chicks stranded in a remote garage

Greg, so what is this about Japanese selling M.I.A. guitars on their auctions? How do you even get in on that?

Now you have just completely entwined me brain. If it is made in Japan, how is it not a copy?..

It is. That's not necessarily a bad thing, there are periods where the copies outdo the originals.

i guess most people would consider them copies. i'd consider a couple i've had to be pretty good likenesses of the guitar's they're designed to emulate.

but you bring up a good point of discussion, what would you consider to be a more accurate "copy" of a '59 gibson les paul?

1 - 1976 gibson lp standard
2 - 1980 tokai ls-100
3 - 1999 gibson lp classic
4 - 2010 gibson lp standard
5 - 2012 gibson 1959 RI "R9"
6 - any agile ever (looking at you dspellman)

???
