    Re: Gibson F-5L thoughts

    Kevin, aka mandomutt, has an approval period on sales but not on trades.

    IMO David Harvey signed F5L's, are probably gonna sound really good, if not great, based on the 4-5 I've played.

    YMMV

    I'm not seeing it.....what I am seeing are the pegs to hold a pickguard/finger rest, and a reflection by the neck joint?

    You're kidding right?

    Like Chris, I hope I'm misreading this comment.....if I'm not, it's pretty rude and unnecessary IMO.

    Re: Tell me about your Duff

    I have a 2 year old tone bar braced A5 and a 2004 X braced F5.

    Re: My Rough And Rowdy Ways

    I agree with soliver! ^^^^

    We are often too critical of ourselves when judging by our own ears.....this sounds just as it should IMO.

    The EXPs still come in paper envelopes for each pair.
    The EJs don't, as per D'Addario customer service.
