Topics I've Started
25 January 2013 - 02:58 PMHi there,
So I've been reading on the other forums that Gibson is using hide glue again for 2013 Historic Les Pauls. Now, the response to this has been overwhelmingly positive on the guitar forums. It is the first time I have seen an announcement by Gibson met with such great acclaim.
Now, I understand that a lot of people buying a historic want their guitars to be as historically accurate as possible. But I don't know why and can't quite imagine how one can be so passionate about a certain type of glue.
Does anyone of you know what advantages hide glue has apart from historical accuracy (e.g. tone, fit..)
03 January 2013 - 03:42 PMHi guys,
I am about to pull the trigger on an 09 335 fat neck in sunburst. It sound and plays nicely but there's one thing I'm curious about...
The centre block has a cut-out for the bridge pick-up, on closer inspection through the lower f-hole, the centre-block is not fully attached to the kerfed spruce edge for about 2 cm / 0,7 inch.
Is this normal or faulty craftsmanship?
Your opinion is highly appreciated!
