So I've been swapping gear with this guy that lives pretty close to me pretty regularly now. The first time I was over there he had a guitar that he let me play. I really liked it. I told him to give me a call if he was ever going to sell it. I thought wow that's a really nice guitar he probably won't get rid of it for a while I'm safe.

I go drink a few beers today and watch the soccer game. As soon as the game's over I get an email. Yo bro I'm thinkin about sellin that guitar. I got gas for some other ones. I need x amount of money for it. I'm like omg. I email him back...yo homes I only gots y blingblangs in my paypal account. He emails me back aite let's do that plus 2 pedals plus some other shiznit. I'm like fo real.

I sober the f up by drinking some coffee and get in my car.
....
..

45 minutes later I come home with this.


.....
....

I found this inside.


I'm all like wtfburger where's the rest of the guitar.

Oh good it's got a back.



Then I found this piece



I whip out my hot glue gun and get to work.



Turned out pretty well don't you think?



Yum. Hotter then a girl's field hockey game.

Anybody know which lp it is just by looking at it?

First thing I did was take out the burstbuckers. Rip out the fake bumblebee caps.

A wolfetone fenris and some nos pio caps later and she's good to go.

Unfortunately, I'm all out of my strings and can't really figure out how she sounds until tomorrow. I think it's got 9s on there right now. Gonna go to the store first thing in the morning and grab some 12s. Can't. hardly. wait.

Dunno why you would want to take out the BurstBuckers, but whatever floats your boat. HNGD (again? Already?), that looks like some nice mahogany and maple you've got there.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

they are kinda awful. I've got much better. If they were actually pafs I'd keep them in.
All my other pickups are hand scatter-wound and I had a pair waiting for this guitar.

About the swiftness of new gear days. I've played a lot of guitars these last few months. I'm getting close to a. having enough experience to know what I want and b. tired of chasing down hard to find things. All my grail guitars save 1 or 2 are coming in the next 2 months.
I've got 2 of them already...the prs hb and the baritone...the lp historic is almost one.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

seriously though, just seems like a waste of money to me for someone with barely any playing experience to have this many high end instruments.

>.>

He's kidding, right? He just bought a Gibson LP, and he doesn't know what a flatted note is?

In fret terms, take the fifth note from the root (first note) and move it down one fret.

SlayingEdit:


Counting the root.
