Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

"Gibson Baldwin Music Education Signature Series Signature SG 6-String Electric Guitar"  
Man, that's a mouthful!

Certainly not a mouthful that will be repeated when these begin to appear on ebay :(  
Plus I assume everyone is aware of the $85 Million which Gibson just completed borrowing from BOA for refinancing . . .

    I couldn't believe that anyone could be so stupid, but...  
    If you scroll down there are 4 links to completed auctions with the price as high as $560.  
    Fortuneately a good samaritan named jgrimsley has taken the time to warn everybody about these guitars:  
    I suspect that many of them are being bought by wives as Christmas presents for their husbands... "Merry Christmas, honey!"
