Re: Jackson Custom Shop VV Replica Guitars On eBay

I like two points strat tremolos, you can do nice fluttering effects, the trem bar stays in place (not like the Floyds after a while) and the guitar stays in tune. Also, there are no fine tuning screws, so you can hit the bridge with your hand or fingers. Jeff Beck and Vinnie often do/did flutter. I...

Re: Post Pictures of Your Les Paul Style Guitars Here :o)

Thanks to ankh, 1031, double v and others (on another topic, "Fender and Gibson buy my dinner"), I got back to reality and forgot about buying that guitar with a glued-paper fingerboard... Also I learned about weight-relief guitars and the meaning of the words "made in USA"... Thank you VVFF! Maybe ...

Re: Post Pictures of Your Fender Axes Here! :o)

I've been working on my "butchered" strat this summer. I changed frets, found some glitter paint (for the white on the pickguard too), put an LSR nut and cleaned every part of the poor guitar...
This is the result with my 2009 Jeff Beck strat.

Re: Post Pictures of Your Les Paul Style Guitars Here :o)

The one that makes me hesitate is a Gibson Budokan. Its price is around 2750 US $. I tried it. Those Di Marzio pick-ups and the richlite touch, I don't know... I'm not used of Gibson guitars, so it's difficult for me to compare with another Gibson model. I think it would be more reasonable, better a...

I don't have any Les Paul Style Guitar, but I'm thinking of buying a Gibson Ace Frehley Budokan for months. What price do you think would be correct for a mint Budokan (not the aged-model) ?

Re: Got a great gift from vinnie

All of this reminds me of Samuel Beckett’s « Waiting for Godot » : two people waiting for someone that will never come. We are those two. Between the two acts, there is a kid coming, announcing that Godot will come the next day... Just like RokkenWdokken, or every time Vinnie announces something new...

Vinnie : a good character for a fiction

Vinnie could be a great character for a fiction (novel or movie). What about having someone like the Coen brothers making a movie about Vinnie ? An actor like Steve Buscemi would be great to play Vinnie, and the VVFF could give lots of stories and ideas for that kind of project. The Coen brothers di...

jackson VV measurements and angles

I’ve got half of a broken japanese double guitar that seems to be a Matsumoku production from the early eighties, neckthrough, 24 frets, kind of DiMarzio pickups. A friend found it in a garbage can and gave it to me… I want to transform this guitar to make it look like a VV model. I checked on the i...

german TV video of All hell's breakin' loose : where is V ?

I didn't see anything on this forum about the german TV video of "All hell's breakin' loose". Vinnie pratically never appears on the screen, even during his great solo- they put Gene instead of him. Any idea why ? Did he steal the piece of meat Gene had in the official video ? The TV show was called...

This is my 1988 Fender strat standard US. :shock: I bought it new at the time, and I’m responsible for the terrible massacre I did with a saw and other machines around 1992-3. I covered then the body and the headstock with velvet fur cloth. That was ok, but it lost its colors after all those years. ...

Re: Ace Frehley New Album "Space Invader

Great voice - he should become lead singer of Kiss :D ... He's got a real guitar style of his own. It's nice to hear from him today, especally when I think about him twenty years ago. I saw Ace in a Kiss convention in 1995, and that was a catastrophe. He was drunk, people were really angry at him, t...

Thank you for the nice welcome. I really like Fenders, especially Jazzmasters, Jaguars and Stratocasters. A lot of guitar players that I've listened to over the years did play or still play Jaguars/Jazzmasters : Marc Ribot, Robert Smith, Blixa Bargeld (Nick Cave), Thurston Moore, and a lot of others...

It’s a US Jaguar ’62 Limited edition made in 2008, thin skin. I found it on the internet. The lady who sold the guitar never really played it, so the guitar is mint.

Re: Alice Cooper's DaDa- Albums Unleashed w/Dick Wagner

I've always enjoyed "Special Forces", "Zipper catches skin" and "Dada". Alice is so funny in those albums. I wish he and Dick Wagner did one more album like these three.
Thank you for that interesting show!
