  1. https://www.guitarworld.com/news/jared-james-nichols-sets-out-to-restore-one-of-the-first-gibson-les-pauls-ever-made-after-it-was-destroyed-in-a-tornado
  2. I'd like to see a 'Perfect, straight from the factory' model.
  3. Look how dry the finger boards look. Even now with their 'better than a real 59' attitude. They do nothing to the board. They say they roll them. I bet they discuss the price and roll about laughing . How much is a bit of lemon oil? £10k UK is a shock. I'd want Tom to deliver it on a red carpet for that.
  4. I think our Government (UK) are about to tax internet sales. The greed of them, Yet the billionaires still claw it in tax free.
  5. I'm seeing lots of posts online about cracks in nuts etc on Les Paul's. When you see the pics it's always lacquer on the nut. Poor masking and bad finishing. Then there are complaints about binding finishing. When are Gibson going to address these issues? It's clearly a problem that could be sorted. I've watched the factory videos and the people that finish the guitars are clearly not luthiers. They are cheap labour brought in from anywhere. Even the dealers could sort it. I've had one with it. I just edged the nut with a blade and popped the offending bit of lacquer off. I have to say
  6. I've been looking for another 18 Classic. In gold or blue. I've always wanted a P90 red top/plain back LP and that is the cheapest way to get one. I looked at the M2M route but the price was ridiculous.
  7. Is it the line? If you don't like it, send it back. I've sent guitars back. You wouldn't have a tv with a fault.
  8. My mint 78 Hamer Sunburst is ex Jethro Tull. It was picked up on the 78 US tour. The bass player Tony Williams was signed up by Hamer as an artist and got this guitar. He was originally in Stealer's wheel and had a hit with 'Stuck in the middle with you'.
  9. Just bought one of the above. Its the one with 'Epiphone by Gibson' on the head. 1988. Great condition. I'll have it by Monday.
  10. I've been thinking of getting a 335, but I like the inlays on this 345. What if any is the difference? https://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/product/191216352677008--gibson-es-345-sixties-cherry
  11. If it makes playing easier it has to be good. I remember a 58 Les Paul back in the 70's. someone I knew had it and the back was covered in leather, It was shaped to the guitar and only had a couple of fixing. But it totally protected the guitar. I looked for one but never found one.
