  2. Hello everyone here. I am writing from Italy. About seven years ago I bought from USA a Gibson L5, no pickup, that, as shown in the label inside, appears to be built maybe in 1947. The guitar was in almost good condition, just some dings and small crackings here and there on the top, but anything was and is ok. The only issue is that the celluloid pickguard is bent just in the middle and it was attached on the top towards the wooden bridge rather crudely, maybe with some terrible glue. And, more, the upper side was not fixed at the bottom of the neck (as I think it should have been) but screwed up on the top too. So now I would put the guitar in a better condition, restore it in some points at least. Can someone tell me if I can get a new pickguard, even a plastic one, well done, so that I can replace the original? Some shop is selling that? I have attached some pics of the L5 I am writing about. Any other kind of suggestion about the guitar will be very appreciated. Thank you anyone for reading this and best regards. Mario
  3. Fantastic...It's a real emotion!
  4. Hello. I own a Gibson ES335 and I was thinking about changing the original nut and mounting a Zero Glide Nut. Has anyone just made that? Any experience about that? Thank you.
  5. Hello. Is that buzz coming from a particular string? I can suggest you to verify if it happens at a given frequency (note). Sometimes a given frequency creates a resonance somewhere. In that case, you should trace what vibrates or moves when you play.
  6. It's ok. Anyway, every good and skilled luthier would sure check the nut and very often it needs to be touched. No real good action can be achieved without a less or more work on the nut slots.It's very delicate thing! My compliments for your good ES335. I have to say mine is so fine too! Enjoy her!
  7. Hi Newbie, You can just verify your issue here: http://www.gibson-talk.com/forum/es-sential-hollowbodies/15130-gibson-factory-set-up-specs.html In case you don't find, here what a nice guy posted in 2009: "Hi I'm David the final inspector at Gibson Memphis. I can give you the factory spec info. on our setups. You will need a mechanics rule to do this properly. To check neck relief: fret the low E at the first and 15th fret (not 12th) reach to the 7th fret and tap string. There should be a small space between string and fret - no thicker than a piece of paper. Do the same with the high E. ACTION: fret low E at first fret and measure the distance from the bottom of the to the top of the 15th fret. It should be 5/64" (cm. 0,1984). Do the same with the high E, measurement should be 3/64" (cm.0,1190). Now measure the string height at the nut; underside of the string to the top of the fret. Low E and A should measure 2/64" (cm. 0,0793), D and G =1.5/64" (cm.0,0595) and B and high E = 1/64" (cm. 0,0396). If string height at nut is correct, recheck string height at 12th fret with strings open. Measurement for low and high E's should be the same as measurement taken at the 15th. PICKUPS: Fret low E at 22nd fret and measure pickup height from underside of string to point on pickup closest to string. Bridge pickup should be 3/64" (cm.0,1190), neck pickup should be 4/32"(cm.0,31751). Fret high E at 22nd fret, distance for both pickups should be 3/32" (cm.0.2381). Play test: Play every string at every fret checking for buzzes. Bend High E string 1 and 1/2 steps, beginning at the sixth fret and ending at 22nd, checking for "choking" and to make sure string stays in nut notch." Good luck with your setup! Mario
  8. Thanks again, Anthony and Paul. Your informations are precious, mainly for someone who could possibly get same accident. which I really don't hope. After a not so brief time and lot of askings, I got my Gibson ES335 (wonderful guitar) to an expert liuther here in Italy and I am waiting he fixes that finish issue: let's cross fingers!
  9. Thank you very much,Anthony Buckeridge: that's an interesting information and it can describe what happened to my guitar. Gibson tech kindly answered me, but they could not guess anything about that. In the end, I sure will make the neck painted again. Nitro has to be given with great skill and I think it requires its own time to get perfect. So, maybe, production requirements can't be so precise. Thanks again for your kind concern.
  10. Thanks again everybody for your concern. Is good sharing worries! :) I hope I'll get neck painted again soon.
  11. Sorry for my english...Is not a bag, but the original case...
  12. Hi guys...Thank you for reading and answering. Sorry for my english: is not a bag, but her own case! I really don't know what happened, coz I take a very good care of that guitar. More, it's about two years I don't play her outside the house. I always clean the instrumente after playing and, after, I put her in the case. Someone suggested me that nitro finish, in a incomplete layers drying, can do that in time. But is that possible after six years? Gibson Tech still does not answer and I don't believe they will. I think I will make the neck painted again very soon.
  13. Da quel punto di vista, sono assolutamente d'accordo. Fra l'altro, nonstante la mia (che, comunque, grazie a Dio suona bene) sia stata a suo tempo plekkata a Nashville, l'ho dovuta portare a Genzano da Cloe Guitars per un secondo e migliorepassaggio nella Plek Machine: qualcosa non andava bene. E, comunque, ad uno sguardo ravvicinato, di cose imperfette ne trovo ancora.
