My latest purchase would probably have to be my american strat, and yes gibsons are a brand name that are made for old players that like thier action a foot high and they should learn how to setup thier guitars to fit the rest of the worlds likes. And it dosent help that some L&M salesmen idiots just hang em on the wall cause they come "Setup" from the factory.

It ain't just the Gibson's with the fucked up action at L&M.  I've seen Strats & Jacksons setup with the strings so high that I can't imagine anybody playing it. 
I don't know what you mean by "old players who like their action high" in regards to Gibsons.  Their flatter fretboard radius means that if the neck isn't fucked up (ie: rising tongue, backbow etc) you can lower the action to the point you just have to touch it lightly to fret it and then you can bend the piss out of it without getting that annoying Fender phenomenon of "fretting out"

maybe you dandies with the delicate hands should learn how to fret a note.

what the hell is a dandy?

From wikipedia :

"A dandy[1] is a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance,....a dandy often strove to imitate an aristocratic style of life despite being of middle-class background....In the 21st century, the word "dandy" is a jocular, often sarcastic adjective meaning "fine" or "great", while "a dandy" refers to a well-groomed, well-dressed, and self-absorbed man."



It seems the word came about in the 1800's or so, which is why old man chester chose it i'm sure...  grin

Oh By that definition im sure as shit not a dandy, i an not well groomed at all, and what i meant by "old players that like thier action high" i mean just that, the guitars come setup like that, where as jackson and ibanez usually come setup for shred, thats just how they are, of coarse some do change through shipping though.

kudos to the guy getting a sawchyn those are really decent and i agree that they shine much better than any taylor or larivee.

However, i personally think the next step up from that is a Morgan. After playing several morgan's side by side with taylors and larivees as well trying a few sawchyns, the Morgan is an unbeatable uniquely luthier masterpeice.

After many days of saving i hope to attain a 100% canadian sugar maple dreadnought in quilted finish; top back sides and neck. i will probably also line this bad boy with the latest non intrusive B-Band A series pickup so that i don't cut into the guitar and just change the end pin for an end jack with 9V battery. The plan is for a UST/AST combination for maximized pickup on percussive playing on the body as well as air tapping.

Boo to internal mikes!

just my two cents

in recent news of new gear i have recently attained a KORG Radias. quite a gem, and the same keyboard that the guy from dream theatre uses from what i hear. don't know of anyone else who uses this genious synth.

Funny thing you mentioned Morgan guitars. Before I bought the Sawchyn I  had both the Sawchyn here at my house and a Morgan. I had them both for almost 2 weeks. Hands down the Sawchyn won. The Morgan wasn't as open as the Sawchyn and there was also some structural problems with where the fretboard meets the guitar top.

Needless to say every guitar will have it's own characteristics. Maybe the Sawchin I had was better than the Morgan. Tough to say but I imagine somewhere there's a Morgan sounding better than a Sawchyn.

Regardless, how do you even know about these guitars?

Curious as to whether you were trying a morgan monroe as opposed to a true hand built david iannone morgan.

Sawchyn's were good but it's all about the wood. and a full maple morgan is freakin awesome!

on a side note i completed my paiste signature lineup, got a brand new 16" full for 180 cdn shipped off of ebay and a good used 18" fast for 200 cdn shipped.

It's a Morgan from BC. Morgan is the name of the Luthiers son i believe. The guy who makes Morgan's used to work for Jean Larrivee.
