Did you post the wrong link or are you that person wanting a bit of advertising? I scrolled past the first 5? Pages - just people saying she was ok?

Click more around 10 down, then go down further and there are even more.

Just reminded me of this. An explosion of consciousness and anyway I like to keep Mr P happy with my links.

I mean I could order a new one, but what's point? I'll cost the same.
Finding a used one and bringing it home is fun too since I live in London and wish to play on it in London (so the extra kick for me would be guitar from small town America 'sorry', rocking out in London with it now with me).
I have years I'm looking for..
I already own a 1996, I was told by 1 store in Portland (for free when I asked if they sold them) that for the specifics I want, I want a heavier Gibson than the one I've got now so it'll be one from the earlier 80s before Gibson changed ownership and produced more chambered/lighter guitars (like the one I've got).
I've also got a slimmer neck on my guitar I love and I do love my guitar, but I want a Gibson with a 50s style neck, like on a 1959 reissue, so, I know what I want, and hope to find them to chose from (as well as seeing other cool finds).
I can't offer any help with all the other stuff going on in the thread so I won't pretend to be of any use otherwise, but this post gave me wood.

Mostly mahogany.

I live in Eugene and work in Springfield. It's pretty funny that you would come so far and spend so much money to sit in a motel room in Springfield and get high. Those small mom and pop motels often are home to all the kinds of people that can't stay or rent anywhere else, such as sex offenders, or others fresh out of jail, so keep your eyes peeled and your guitars safe. Springfield is a pretty run down industrial town, although one or two blocks down town are getting a makeover. If you want to try something harder than pot, I can direct you to the multiple places in Springfield to meet those who can help you out. Island Park on the river is a great place to meet many dodgy characters and pick up plenty of used needles.


Be aware that the police here will treat you pretty harshly if you step outside anything that resembles legal behavior.


In Eugene, carry plenty of cash to give to all the beggars on every street corner, or be prepared to say 'not today, man' about a hundred times a day as you walk through downtown.


I make the area sound pretty bad, but its really ok. That is, if you're not staying in shitty hotels and getting stoned all the time. The locals will really take you for a ride, as they'll likely see a naïve foreign tourist as a great target.

I think she has a couple of weeks to reply. I have it marked and intend checking back in a few months. What makes me wonder is people must have seen that and still booked.
