    Cool peghead shot. My ’62 Riv has the same inlays…

    I wish it was plain, without the inlay, like the Casino.
    That’s what I call the First World problems. 🙂

  3. RAB says:

    A little ebony gloss touchup paint will take care of that! Ha, ha!

  4. JS says:

    That would not look right. 🙂

  5. RAB says:

    Or put on a Hare Krishna sticker like Clapton did on his ’64 335!

    At what height do you set your Strat pickups? Simon Law (of SVL guitars) recommended 2 mm, 3 mm and 4 mm below the low E string for bridge, middle and neck pickups respectively. Measured between the bottom of the string to the top of the polepiece when fretting the low E string at the last fret. The pickups look very low to my eyes but do sound good for nice, full chords! Just gotta turn the amp up!

    Been trying/going thru a lot of overdrive pedals recently. Liking the Fulltone OCD version 1 and just ordered a version 2. Anyone tried one? I run the OD thru 1964 Blackface combos and Bassman (tuxedo head into a custom 1X15″ cab) set for clean rhythm sounds…sometimes drag out my ’61 brown Deluxe too!

    Been trying a bunch of the Hao (Japanese boutique brand) pedals…fantastic build quality. Got their Soul Pressure OD arriving next week…

  9. RAB says:

    Didn’t like the HAO pedals though I did use one of their Rumble Mod pedals years ago…now trying the Xotic AC and BB pedals. Anyone have any experience with those? I want a nice, rich sounding OD with a bit of compression. So many ODs these days have lots of gain but are too raspy sounding!

    After going thru over a dozen OD pedals of various types my old, early issue Barber Direct Drive is still my go to pedal! Trying a non-MOSFET Fulltone Fulldrive 2 next, will advise!

  11. RAB says:

    Update! After going thru a dozen or more OD pedals I am still back to my early issue Barber Direct Drive! Found nothing better so far including original Klon…

  12. RAB says:

    What’s y’all’s favorite overdrive pedal?

  13. RAB says:

    Will get back on the Gibson guitar track soon, posting my ‘59 Flying V. OK, its a 2001 reissue but Korina with cool mods and aging by Terry Mueller and Dave Johnson!

  14. RAB says:

    Better photos soon…

  15. RAB says:

    Some more pix. And of the near mint ’62 Vibrolux I scored at the same time. Sounds bad ass y’all!

  16. RAB says:

    Headstock shot!

  17. RAB says:

    What do y’all think of my new toys?

  18. RAB says:

    Anyone else a V, Explorer, Moderne or Futura player?

  19. RAB says:

    Must be some Korina Love out there somewhere?! :>}

  20. davek says:

    Never had a Korina but that’s fine looking V RAB

  21. RAB says:

    Thanks! I gigged the V tonight thru my ‘62 Fender Vibrolux in a big hall and it sounded great! Love those Throbak pickups! The Vibrolux is all stock other than a Celestion Alnico Gold speaker…

    My Gibson ES 330 early 1960 with 59 spec and the bigger neck profile.
    I want to trade/buy a nice vintage Gibson ES 335 in cherry red.

    Thanks for a nice website about the lovely ES guitars!
