Well first if you remember there was the whole "new" vBulletin board that replaced the old one in I think early 2013. That didn't go over well since basically the whole archive of the General Discussion board was lost. At......MORE »

I believe this was part of a small run of guitars made to work with the "video game" Rockband (or something similar).  I think you could plug-in via the USB and use it to control the game and lessons to learn how to play......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Pre 1980 ESP tele

I'd suspect you'd have more luck trying to sell it as a Fender than as an ESP.  I'd guess around the $700 range, but I'm really not up to date on the value of late 70s Fenders.  Most that I've seen are Strats, and......MORE »

To fix your knobs, start by removing the knob.  Use a thin string or rubber band on the face of the guitar, and then place the knob on top of that.  By holding the knob on top of the string when you use the set......MORE »
