  1. In the new 2019 Gibson guitar Collections, I was hoping for a LP or SG guitar with 57 Classic pickups.

  3. In 2008 Gibson was selling R8 Les Pauls. I bought one new at that time. There was no marketing about a 50th Anniversary guitar as far as I know. It seems to be just a timing coincidence about any Anniversary,a 50 year span from the year 1958. The murphy-aged finish editions might of been labeled anniversary guitars, from a picture on eBay. My R8 Les Paul came with a COA, a black wallet like "Certificate of Authenticity". Do you have this? The serial number on my guitar is a 6 digit number, with no spaces. Your serial number is only 5 digits has a space after the initial 8. Who knows what Gibson does with serial numbers? Looking at some R8's pictures on eBay show a 5 digit serial number like yours, so my guitar seems to be an oddball. My R8 guitar was a VOS issue, this gave the guitar a slight worn look. It did not have any rusted parts. Your guitar has some rusted parts,what happened? Remove the rear panel control panel, I believe the R8 LP came with large look alike bumble-bee caps which are big black caps. The necks are also beefy,big. I really don't know what your guitar is.

    show your sg

    2017 SG Faded HP I really went full circle on this purchase. I was convinced I wanted the new 2017 SG T cherry burst. When I finally found one in guitar center I felt the neck binding edges were rounded a bit. Maybe it was not the greatest example. So I went back to my original guitar that I liked, SG Faded in brown. I keep looking at the specs and it seems like the HP is a better guitar. From pictures on the internet it looked like Gibson spent a little more time on the fret edges, being finished a bit more than the Std Faded. The 490 pups are fine with me. Didn’t know what to think about GForce. I set the accuracy setting to max. It can really tune a guitar! Every doublestop (two notes played at the same time) and chord sounds great. I’m grateful for the factory set-up, every note sounds good. It’s a sweet guitar, Gibson HP. I'm having problems with the pictures.
  5. There was some Gibson article about how they wound pickups, scatter wound vs not, whatever. At the end the article, to some effect, stating that the field was stronger on the non-screw side, (not sure that makes any sense, i'm not a Physicist). Seems like the row of magnets, the row of screws, and the strings are relatively level. Need some real fact checking science in that, does it matter if this magnetic-field slants, which is curved itself. You got to try and test yourself. Can you move the pup with your finger as you play a chord. Does it sound different. Could be, I suppose depending on the pickup. It looks better when their level.
  6. I happened to prefer heavy guitars. I just think they feel more solid, a little weight to them. Sure a light guitar feels great, easy to move around with. Each guitar seems to have its own tones. This is what I got from an internet forum: Lighter = more bass, less sustain. Heavier = more sustain, more mids/highs.
  7. Be sure you like the 50's neck. They are thicker than a slim 60's type. I don't think the finish is "durable" in the respect that if you nick it, it won't show. But I'd think its fine if you take reasonable care of the guitar. I think the Faded finish is like my BFG, not much finish at all.
  8. Kuma, I really hope they don't drop the sub $1000 guitars. I hear ya, buy one now. I'm waiting for the real Namm 2015 news. I haven't been able to find much info about next years products, as some people seem to know about.
  9. Gibson can make a good guitar, I skipped buying this year. I'm looking forward to the 2015 yr models. Hopefully they will still offer a LPJ model. I agree with charlie brown 29%? That's absurd, ridiculous, Let the retail price be - and keep the out the door, real price low. A business should consider the customer, Looking forward to all the new 2015's Les Pauls.
  10. I'm perfectly happy with Gibson parts. I don't consider them sub-par. Maybe my guitar playing is sub-par. I'd personally spend the money towards a new amp or a cool effects pedal. - But that's just me, upgrade (change) anything you want. Email that company (customer service), They’ll figure out something to sell you.

    I think the value should be less than the original Gibson new cost. It's a used guitar no matter what condition. I remember the cost somewhere about the same as a Les Paul Studio, +/-. Perhaps someone on eBay is getting over, asking a fortune for one. I am by no means someone who can place a value on a used guitar. I like to buy new ones, which are pricey enough for me. Why buy a used one for more than it cost new? Sure, I like it. Wish I bought one at the time they were in production. Problem is there are tons of new guitars to choose from, so why bid up an old one? I thought the lingerie company behind it was a cool thing, supposed to be a woman's guitar. There's just lots of competition. New Les Pauls will be out next year to buy.
  13. Thanks for the picture. As they say pictures show a lot. I'm a fan of Gibsons. I just think they can make a good guitar. It's always interesting to me when people claim about a cap change making lots of difference, the orange drop thing, I don't really know. Epiphone makes guitars I like too,nothing against them, I'd just rather own a Gibson. The body difference is real alright. I personally wouldn't think too much of. You think it effects the tone? Maybe it's some crazy way Gibson is cutting costs. I thought some Gibson SG's are pretty thin body too.
  14. Yes charlie, that would be another one to buy, a kind of an original style 2 mini-pup style Riviera. Anyway thanks charlie and clark. I'm not that aware of all the Epiphone model history. Just saw a clip of Robben Ford playing a Riviera on the internet. Not that I'm a fan of Robben Ford, the guy does know some music, but I liked his guitar, looked like an older Epip Riviera, minus the pick-guard. Lots of people have Casinos. Just thought the Riviera model would be a little different. And clark mentioned the Limited Edition Riviera does have better electronics, mmm interesting.
  15. What's the story on the Epiphone Riviera guitar? Are they still in production, or just the Limited Edition is -with the 3-P90's. Is it a step above the Casino's? Is it also a true hollow-body?
