  1. Hey guys, been absent for a while but have a question for any Gibson fanatics. Well I work at a local guitar shop and my co-worker has a Gibby Explorer that he purchased from a local dealer in '78. He bought it "new" and is the sole owner, but came with a factory refin, two serial numbers, and a "second" stamped on the back of the headstock.. The first serial # (967346) indicates it was approx built in 1959 while the second (70178087)indicates that it's from '78. It also has a repaired headstock from the factory as well. Any info concerning value, history, facts etc would be great.
  2. i just love this thread...just thought i'd pop in for that insignificant statement..
  3. I don't understand why this wouldn't be covered by Gibson's Warranty... ...If that happened to one of my Gibby's, I'd definitey would expect a warranty replacement...It looks like it's going to continue to get worse as well...
  4. I was looking at those earlier but they don't state what kind of RW is being used...For that price I'd want Brazilian or Madagascaran...But since they don't state it, my guess would be East Indian RW..(still great RW none the less)
  5. http://www.tundratone.com/ I have two original 1959 BumbleBee Caps that I bought from Tundratone..One is a 0.22uf that I bought for 40$ ( Went in my SilverBurst Explorer)...and 0.10uf BB Cap for 10$ (Waiting for a NGD for this one)....Real great dude, and the real BB's are just magnificent...I prefer them to the Luxe's by a fair stretch BUT those Luxe's sound damn good..real or not..
  6. Definitely...those LED's look freakn amazing Josh...the wood part doesn't look half bad either
  7. If you want a good start, look at some Barber OD's...1st class components and good price's to boot..Fred and I have our "dislikes" about Boss OD/Distortion pedals...So I'd go Barber for dirt pedals or about anything they make.. .
  8. One of the few post I've ever read where, I actually lol...
  9. Great lookin V bro...I love mine as well..One of the few guitar's I bought new and the action was completely perfect...It's the most comfortable guitar to play while standing up, and those pups scream, with some nice saturation...The clean's are bit metallic but that can be a good thing depending on what your going for...Rock on man!
  10. Good idea Cookie, I've been trying to do the same as well...Your the only other guy in the forum that has a Gibson 60's Studio Deluxe other then I, so make sure to put that axe to some work! Great talkn to you dude.
  11. Yep same here...All of em fit like a glove..
  12. Kind of envious man, how you can just pick up a bass and start laying down tracks...and good ones at that...Really impressive dude.
  13. Yup good quailty caps are the way to go..I have an 1959 original 0.22 BB cap in my Explorer and it sounds incredible...Also have some Luxe Bee's in my Trad that sounds great too..It's amazing what a cap change can do for your tone, and what's even more amazing is that Gibson is using such sh!t caps in the first place..(I mean seriously look at those blue things? lol)
  14. wow number 3 was INSANE...it scared the **** out of me just watching it..I can't imagine what the dude felt like like who was standing there....Great post rocket, thanks for sharing.
