  1. In Topic:2006 Les Paul Classic Goldtop Checking?

    Those are stress fractures in the gold paint from somebody forcing the knobs onto their shafts. Better to drill them out so they fit on without force being required.
    Gold paint uses copper which tends to crack. Just ignore the fractures but don't use force on gold paint anymore. Gold paint is unique and requires delicate handling.

    Generally on that end of the fretboard most cracks are caused by the truss rod bolt. Those look like stress fractures that have become visable.

  4. In Topic:Zero Glide nut on a Casino?

    26 April 2017 - 11:02 AM may have flex in the top under the Bigsby causing tuning issues.
    I had an issue with a Casino top that had sunk like a cake. I cut a small cube of Maple and slid it in the body. It is basically a sound pole like fine Violins use. Try this under the Bigsby. You won't need glue. I didn't use a round dowel. I used a square block which I cut from a Maple board.. Took 15 mins to do.
