  1. How does it feel when you rub your finger lightly across the stain area? Is it tacky or gummy? What about the rest of the guitar? Is it tacky and course feeling?
  2. So glad it checked out. Great job on doing the due diligence.
  3. Congrats, My assumption is that after this photo, you dropped the camera and just started playing. Please post an unwrapped photo during one of you breaks.
  4. Well, it could be legit. It just doesn't pass my sniff test. If it is a guitar you really want, one could take it to their local Gibson dealer and have it checked out. Just ask the seller to meet you where this can be done by an independent expert. If it is legit, the seller will have no problem accommodating you on this request.
  5. IMHO, this is a fake. All the things you mentioned and more. The finish is wrong. The made in USA stamp is wrong. The serial number look up come back unrecognized.
  6. Congrats on your score. Enjoy!
  7. I don't hold much hope for the future of GC and their subs. Pretty sure they'll last a bit longer but they are in the throws of a slow and painful death. It was nice to see all the same faces working there. I hope for their sake, corporate get's their crap together. Most of the folks at my local GC have been there a very long time and are very knowledgeable.
  8. Just got done with the shed/garage swap. Snow blower and generator come out of the shed and into the garage. The lawn mower, trimmer and leaf sweeper come out of the garage and go into the shed. While the shed is empty, get all of the Christmas decor out. All of the crap we haven't used from the shed in the past year, in the trash. Went to GC yesterday, dang is that wall empty! Walked next door to S.A. same thing. 200 miles round trip just to look at empty walls.

  10. This is my son Nick. He has been playing for almost 4 years and has started to stretch his wings a bit. He plays everything you hear and wrote this piece himself.

  11. Yeah, he's not going to get 6K. He did say OBO. Guitar Chimp has them from time to time at about 3,200.
  12. My hope is JH's family get a bit of the $. The 2016 with the smaller body looks a bit more proportionate to me. I am a fan of the bound body and neck.
  13. Pretty safe to say, I will not. I will hold out for the 91-93 in great condition.
  14. I did a bit of research and it looks like the 57's have a 49.21mm spacing. They are available from StewMac and they fit their vintage humbucking kits. They also have a 52.71mm spacing for the bridge position if needed. Read the install instructions.
  15. When my son was 14, a freshman in high school and playing trombone in the concert band, he discovered the guitar. What a journey that has sent us on but that's another story. He played his band teachers acoustic for a while then asked for his own electric guitar. I asked which one he liked and he showed me a web page with an Epiphone SG Special. I asked why that one and he said he really like Angus Young. For $159.00 dollars what could it hurt. Spent another $150.00 on a used amp and away he went. That boy would play AC/DC non stop. Later I discovered that Gibson had done several Angus Young s
  16. I’m so glad someone started this thread. When I first saw the announcement of the new Jimi models I was very excited. Then I saw the price! You have got to be kidding me. Do the math everyone. 300 guitars at 10K each, this is a 3 million dollar project for the custom department not to mention all the other uber expensive custom shop guitars. You mean to tell me you want 10K for a guitar that you beat the crap out of? Gibson claims Jimi custom ordered the Flying V. That is not hard to believe but I’m sure they did not deliver a brand new guitar beat to crap and looking 50 years old. If we want
