  1. Ignatius - you are right in your concerns. still, after examining several 12 string hollow bodies, i think the neck will be fine IF i can find one with a headstock that will take an additional 6 tuners. hollowbodies can/are reinforced and a competent luthier should be able to do this. if there is a way to get a wider neck on an ES335-12, i would consider it. i think those were 1 and 9/16. very small for 12 strings (IMHO)
  2. anyone know of a Gibson luthier that has done this? wanting to convert a Tennessean to a 12 string and keep the 1.75 in. nut.
  3. lot of truth to what you say. still... i think Gibson could do it and still be cost effective. not everyone can play a 1 and 11/16 inch neck. try to get a gibson electric with 1 and 3/4 nut width. this wouldn't even have to be a one off. i'm talking simple stuff here, not the wild and crazy extreme.
  4. i'm sure they could do it too, but they wouldn't even make me a quote. i guess you have to be famous. ](*,)/
  5. for instance, i would like to be able to specifiy a specific neck width, body style, and 6 or 12 string options. example: hollow body, 12 string, 1 and 7/8 neck width, vintage tuners, and so forth. i would not mind paying for additional labor to do this.
  6. need an arm guard for a Chet Atkins Tennessean. any idea how i can get one? also, what is a safe cleaner and polish for the finish. this is my first Gibson. thanks
