  1. I ordered from this company and they are well made. However, Gibson has been going after people selling the original bell shaped design so you have to be careful who you order from. This guy had to slightly change his design to get around the problem. http://stores.ebay.com/wectrussrodcoverinlay
  2. The last day to register for the 2016 Gibson Homecoming will be May 10th.
  3. We still have openings if anyone would still like to attend. If so, send me an e-mail with your information.
  4. Yes, he was known as "RAR". As Hogeye said, he was very educated in Gibson guitars and always shared the information he had with members of this forum. A select few members of this forum didn't always accept some of the information he shared, but in the end, Bob was almost always right. He is missed a lot.
  5. I think it's worth it, Neil. The pickguard alone might make it worthwhile, although I think it also depends on how long you plan to keep it. If you're planning to keep it, you might need a neck reset at some point in the distant future and that would be well worth it.
  6. We still have openings remaining for the 2016 Gibson Homecoming, if you're interested.
  7. I've never understood the need or purpose of a locking latch. If someone is going to steal your guitar they're going to just take the entire case and all, regardless if it's locked or not.
  8. Great guitar, Steve. Congrats!!! Wishing you many years of happiness with your new friend.
  9. The cause could be a number of things. It could be a humidity issue or it could just be a defective pickguard. If you are the original owner, I'd take it to a Gibson facility to have it looked at before you try to do anything on your own. Otherwise, if you mess with it first, they might not cover it. If you're not the original owner you could try to remove it and place it under a stack of books to see if it will flatten out. If you try to just put double sided tape under the parts that are now curling, most likely it will just curl up again.
  10. If you are the original owner, take it to an authorized Gibson repair facility and they may replace it for free. DO NOT use glue to reattach the old one. Double sided tape is what you should use, but if the old one is curling up, it may not lay flat enough for you to reattach it. Good luck.
  11. The strap featured in this thread is very nice. But I also like Sully straps and use them on most of my guitars. The modern styles are nice and the vintage styles are even better. No metal on any of them, so no need to worry about scratching your guitar. He also makes them so they fit perfectly with a way to adjust them, if needed.
  12. Jesse, I use 2A pins in all of my Gibsons, most of which are years 2000 and newer. They have fit in all of them with no problems at all.
  13. If you own a Gibson Hummingbird and are looking to replace the one that's on your guitar, you can purchase a replacement through an authorized Gibson dealer. They'll ask you for proof that you do own one and yes, they are expensive. That's the only way that Gibson can make sure that their pickguards made specifically for certain models of Gibson guitars (Hummingbirds. Doves, etc.) are only being placed on the Gibson models for which they were intended. If you don't own a Gibson Hummingbird and are looking to add a Hummingbird pickguard to another model of guitar, then your only option is to purchase a counterfeit. But supporting counterfeit products opens up a lot of potential problems, such as: 1. You don't know if they'll fit, 2. You don't know about the quality or if the material they're made out of will damage your guitar. 3. If they come with adhesive, you don't know if that adhesive will damage your guitar, 4. If Gibson takes legal action against the seller, you may not get caught up in the middle.
