    When it comes to guitar refins, I defer to my luthier. Unless you have the experience and skills to accomplish the work yourself, it can be a disaster.

    Damn! I started playing at age 12 and now I'm 70. Never oiled a board, never had a problem, and still own my first guitar and my first high end guitar.

    A bit more info. Your serial number (beginning with the number 6 and containing a total of 6 digits) corresponds to one or the other of two intervals during the 1970's. 70-72 or 74-75. Gibson's numbering has always been noted for taking some odd twists and turns - so it's not uncommon for repetitions to occur in their older instruments. I can't be sure whether or not your tuning machines are the originals, not that it matters, from the posted pictures.

    Hello OC...I was just reading the post on The battle of Long Tan and saw that you are a Marine. Good for you where were you stationed? The reason I ask is that I was in the Navy and was stationed at MCAS El Toro in southern CA for 2 1/2 years.
