  1. Yes it’s an ES-125T (thin body). I don’t have a serial number list in front of me but with that number I would guess 63-64.
  2. Looks like a wartime L50 to me, with no steel truss rod and the wooden cross bar. Gibson was known to make “Special“ models during this time with non standard features too.
  3. I've had a few T-60s, a couple T-40s, a T-15, a T-27 and a handful of "later" USA models (mid 80s maybe?). All heavier than rocks and just as hard to drive a screw into. Good workmanship though. Nice guitars.
  4. Back in 2015, the company sold off a range of speaker and amplifier manufacturing equipment following the closure two of its Mississippi factories, after it moved production overseas due to “changes in the marketplace”. I have a 1988 Classic VTX and a 1986 Bandit 65 (my favorite amp). I don't buy newer Peavey products due to "changes in the marketplace".
  5. The old forum was like that. I’ve sent a couple messages upstairs asking it be enabled in the new forum.
  6. When you see spam, feel free to report it. I get an email immediately. All we (mods) have to do is ban the offender and all of their posts automatically go away. WE still see the &$@ things but they’re invisible to you guys.
  7. My daughters names are Kimberly and Sarah. In the late 90s I had a vanity plate with "K&S DAD". When I set up my first email address, I fumbled around with variations of that (something that would work for an email) and it morphed into KSDADDY.
  8. You're right, it would typically be stamped on the center brace but I suppose it could be faint or dirty.
  9. It's a B-25 if it has X bracing. If ladder bracing, then an LG-1. At first glance, the color of the sunburst and the belly-down bridge with rosewood saddle made me think 1969. The serial number is 1968 according to a reliable source on the web.
  10. I looked at the “warning” and it made no sense to me how it got there. It also made no sense as to.... who the “guest” was that PUT it there. So I removed it. Not sure if it was okay to do or not, but I saw no reason for it to be there in the first place.
  11. It's going to last a long, long time. Every year or so I would take it apart, clean and oil the threads on the saddle screws, and keep using it. It will look old and funky but it's not like it's ever going to rot through. And if it gets to the point where the aesthetics are too bad for you, just buy a new bridge and put the old one in the case pocket so you keep the original part, for whatever value that may have in the future. It's all good. Use it, try to wear it out. Bet ya can't.
  12. I have one guitar that is like that. Which is why I never play it. Last time I tried to clean my Telecaster it didn't play right for two months. Shock to the system. Kinda like when the Ewell family showed up in the courtroom scrubbed clean (To Kill a Mockingbird).
