Me? Nah, sorry mate, I'm a lefty. I was just curious as to what sort of money people are looking for, for second hand guitars these days?

Well......Hello, you :)


Hello you too.

I haven't seen an HMB post in a while!


I've floated by every once in a while but haven't really felt as inclined to jump into the forums as I used to, seems a lot quieter round here now.

Mr HMB, how the devil are you?


I'm fine thanks. Not putting as many guitar-hours in as I used to and am severely rusty as a result, picked up my Tele the other day for the first time in months and struggled to get my fingers going where I wanted them to. Not that I was ever a great guitarist to begin with mind.

It's not worth that much. It's an early 90's Japanese Squire. It's not got those pickiups on now. It has Dimarzio sds1's.
That's why it's not for sale, because it's not worth as much as guitars it's better than.

Yes and no. If I was lucky I wouldn't have to sell the Mustang. But a can't buy my new one unless I sell my Mustang and the LP. I'm not fussed about the LP but the Mustang is nice.

Hello Andy,

I've seen you pass through the site once in awhile lately like a burglar in the night! Good to see you back.

Have had some Rory Gallagher on in the car lately, hadn't listened to much in a long while and it was a reminder of how brilliant he was. If anyone was ever in doubt as to the potential versatility and quality of a Strat in the right hands then his live Irish Tour (1974) and Live In Europe (1972) albums are worth a listen.

I would have probably said the Les Paul back when I still cared about six strings. I wouldn't trade my J Bass for any other guitar.

Still got the original pups too Rick. This ones 90's, not as collectable as the earlier ones, but still great.

Owned a Gibby LP Studio for about..10 months or so, I think. I found a used Fender Tele for cheap about 3 months later and may as well have welded the LP into its case for good. I think it's just the scale length that bugs me, though. The strings seem too chunky and wobbly for my taste.

My favorite guitar now, though, is my Chinese Squier Strat. Just completely rewired it with new pots, selector switch and jack as well as some Fender Noisless single coils. It's gotten quite a bit hotter and yet more mellow than those cheapo stock pups, and I haven't been able to put it down since. I ordered a Mighty Mite maple neck and a custom headstock decal that says "Maravilha" (Portugese for "amazing" :D ) to finish up the project for now.

An asshole and a scholar, from my gentleman to my collar.

Back when I was a GTUer, I used to only "endorse" (:D, LOL) Fender Stratocasters. Also, I remember the only Gibson I've ever liked was this Ebony LP that was priced around $3000-$4000 new. I thought Les Pauls didn't sound good; they were overrated in my mind.

But over the years, I was fortunate enough to play on few wicked Les Paul guitars. It really blew my mind how these guitars sounded. I still do like Fender Strats and would probably prefer them over any brand if I really had to pick out one axe, but I'm slowly gearing towards Les Pauls.

Whenever I can afford one (I've been saying that close to 10 years now...:S) I will pick up a nice sounding Les Paul.

I agree with every word u say mate ! I love the LP sound ( L O V E ) !!! It provides the sound that i always wanted to hear :) Definitely when i can afford a Gibson Les Paul i will buy one ! :)
