    Looks like he's getting all he needs from the volume knob. Today's TV appearance is tomorrow's signature Epiphone

    I also noticed that it has the original stamped tuners. That's gutsy!

    Where did you see that? I don't recall seeing the back of it at all.

    Mike Campbell played that at the O'Connell Center concert in Gainesville, FL in '06 - a lot better guitar than the Guyatone he had in G'ville when he met Tom Petty.

    Epi made the college themes in the 2000s. The link says they started at $499. I looked for the University of Florida version, a couple of years ago, but couldn't find one. They're probably all in frat house rec rooms, soaked with beer.

    I can tell by the shape of the pegs.

    Huh, they look pretty generic to me. Sure there wasn't just a button swap? I can't imagine a tech for a big name band sending out a guitar with dodgy tuners just because it has the Gators logo.

    Could be, I guess. The post hole size looks original too.

    They used sealed tuners on those. They work fine. I saw one on LetGo in Jacksonville the other day, guy was asking $250.

    That would make sense. The Epiphone die cast tuners are actually decent.

    Yep. I got my ruler out and everything. I spent 6 hours doing complex mathematic formulas converting pixels to inches and then to millimeters and back to pixels. I even had to compensate for the stretch of the angle. Very very complicated.

    I'm feeling froggy today. Earlier, I solved world hunger and staved off a potential epidemic of cannibalism by suggesting the breeding of cats for food...on a Facebook cat group. The mathematics were less complicated, but I don't think my idea was very well received. Any other questions?

    Meh, I've watched Adam Savage do the same thing on Mythbusters and when he's just making a replica prop for himself.
