  1. Maybe some scratch remover like this? I definitely wouldn't get too aggressive with it though.... https://www.amazon.com/ColorTone-Scratch-Remover-2-oz-Bottle/dp/B07HPBCP5M/ref=sr_1_7?dchild=1&hvadid=77721780568668&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvqmt=e&keywords=guitar+scratch+remover&qid=1628083536&sr=8-7
  2. I have a 1966 Dove with a Tune-o-matic bridge and I'm trying to find a replacement bridge (it's flattened a bit and doesn't match the radius of the fretboard). But I haven't been able to locate one anywhere, does anyone know of someone that might have one? I have an email in to Gibson R&R but haven't heard back from them. I'm aware that some have cut the hole out into a slot in the regular ABR bridge, and may have to do that, but hoping to find one that doesn't need to be altered. I've checked with Stewmac, Kluson, Callaham Guitars, partsisparts.net, All Parts, Willies Guitars, but no luck so far. It looks like this....
  3. I have a different weird finish issue on a 2016 Les Paul Studio... in normal light it just looks like a dull spot on the front, but in brighter fluorescent light or if you hit it with a flashlight it's like there's a weird orange hue over the wine red stain. If I use a mild polish with a white cloth some of it will show up on the white cloth. But even the very faint parts (almost looks like brush marks on some of the edges) never come off even with scratch remover. I haven't gotten real aggressive with it... but on one hand it looks like it's underneath the lacquer and won't come off, but on the other hand you can get a little color on a white rag like it's painted over the lacquer. It is ONLY on part of the front, you can see it in the picture below the bridge and extending around the top to near the pickup switch (at least I hope you can). The back, sides, and neck don't have any discoloration at all, and polish with a white cloth does not transfer any color to the cloth. I'm not sure if it came from the factory like this, or the previous owner did it trying to fix something in the finish. I'm the second owner so it's not under warranty. Hope this works, if not let me know
  4. Hi, I'm Randy from Sapulpa, Oklahoma. I have a 2016 Les Paul Studio and a 1966 Dove, and I joined up to see if I can get some info on them. I'll drop a post in the appropriate section with a question or two. Thanks, Randy
